What to Consider About Assisted Living in Bensalem

Bensalem Township, Pennsylvania, sits along the Delaware River and was founded over three centuries ago. Seniors in Bensalem can attend free Civil War reenactments, explore World War II history and visit 18th century mansions. Seniors looking to make Bensalem their home have the option of 31 Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs) in the area. The state of Pennsylvania refers to ALFs as Assisted Living Residences and defines them as facilities that offer supervision, meal services and assistance with activities of daily living to seniors. The regulations for these ALFs are determined by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services, which ensures that professional standards are met.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Bensalem

  • The climate in Bensalem has mild seasons, so outdoorsy seniors can enjoy the changing seasons and outdoor activities in the warm summers that average a high temperature of 86 degrees. The winter months have an average low temperature of 24 degrees and 14 inches of snow, so seniors with limited mobility may have difficulty staying active all year round.

  • Seniors living in Bensalem may feel safe and secure due to the relatively low crime rate. Violent crime is rated at 12.5 out of 100 (1 is the safest), which is a lot lower than the national average of 31.1. Property crime is rated at 47.4, which is only a little higher than the national average of 38.1.

  • The Bensalem area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Lower Bucks Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 

  • The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) is free of charge for seniors over 65. Seniors can use the fixed bus routes to get to their doctor’s appointments, go shopping and visit the local attractions.

  • The American Lung Association gave Bucks County a poor Ozone score of F. Seniors with severe asthma or a respiratory condition should consider how this may adversely affect their health.

  • Bucks County has a lot to offer seniors when it comes to culture and history. Seniors may enjoy seeing a production at the Bucks County Playhouse on the banks of the Delaware River, or spend an afternoon exploring the Bucks County Civil War Museum.
