What to Consider About Assisted Living in Bethel Park

The Pennsylvania Department of Human Services regulates and licenses assisted living facilities in Bethel Park and the rest of the state. The department publishes information on licensing requirements related to building features, staffing, care planning and move-in and move-out procedures. It also receives and investigates complaints regarding substandard care, unfair practices and violations of residents’ rights. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Bethel Park

  • There are 381 doctors per 100,000 people in Bethel Park compared to 210 nationally, promoting high access to primary and specialty medical services, and health care costs come in about 10% below national norms. There are no major hospitals in the city proper, but assisted living facilities often have visiting physicians and provide telemedicine services.
  • Bethel Park seniors access transportation services through the county-funded Older Persons Transportation Program. This program operates 7 days per week from 6 a.m. until midnight, and it provides door-to-door service, help with getting into and out of the vehicle and help with navigating up to four stairsteps. Seniors can use this service to take care of errands, attend medical appointments and go to the senior center.
  • In Pennsylvania, seniors don’t pay state income taxes on any type of retirement income, including Social Security benefits, withdrawals from retirement accounts and public and private pensions. This may make long-term care in Bethel Park more affordable for older adults with fixed incomes.
  • Bethel Park’s weather is relatively cool, with temperatures ranging from 20 degrees in the winter to 82 in the summer. The city gets about 30 inches of snowfall and 39 inches of rain, and while July is often humid, humidity levels are typically low throughout the rest of the year. Assisted living facilities often have amenities such as individual climate control, which promotes year-round comfort.
  • The American Lung Association gives Allegheny County, where Bethel Park is located, an F for 24-hour particle pollution, which may be a consideration for those with respiratory or cardiovascular conditions. However, the city has a C for ozone pollution and a passing score for annual particle pollution.
  • Bethel Park offers a welcoming environment for older adults seeking a safe community. On a crime index, the city rates 10.4 for violent crime and 16.4 for property-related offenses, compared to the respective national scores of 22.7 and 35.4. The number of crimes per capita is comparable to similarly sized cities, such as Mount Lebanon and South Park Township.
