What to Consider About Assisted Living in Clarks Summit

Clarks Summit is a borough of Lackawanna County, located in northeastern Pennsylvania, near Scranton. The original land grant was given to William Clark for fighting in the Revolutionary War at the Battle of Bunker Hill in Massachusetts. Clark and his three sons were the only residents when they built their log cabin in 1799, but now slightly more than 5,100 people live in the borough with nearly 1,100 of them being in the 65 and older age bracket.

Some of these people may need assistance with activities of daily living. To that purpose, six assisted living residences (ALRs), as they're called in Clarks Summit and throughout Pennsylvania, are in the area to provide support, with two in Scranton and four in other nearby towns. They're regulated and licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Aging or the Department of Public Welfare.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Clarks Summit

  • Clarks Summit's cost of living rating is only two points below the state and national medians of 100. Groceries and housing are almost six points lower than the national costs, and healthcare is slightly higher at 108. Families may stretch their budgets with lower living expenses to make up for healthcare fees.
  • In Clarks Summit, the violent crime rate is remarkably low at only 9.4 compared to the national average of 22.7. The property crime rate is over 25 points below the U.S. average of 35.4 at 10.2. Families can rest easier if their loved one is in an ALR in this area.
  • In Pennsylvania, residents 60 and older do not pay taxes on their retirement income, including Social Security benefits, pensions and other retirement accounts. This across-the-board exemption and the low sales tax rate may provide flexibility in a family's budget for healthcare.
  • Clarks Summit's climate is a bit wetter than the national annual average with 45 inches of rain and 55 inches of snow. The U.S. averages are 39 and 26, respectively. Summer high temperatures reach 81 degrees, and lows in winter may drop to 18 degrees. Clark's Summit has a Comfort Index of 47, which is seven points below the U.S. average. Seniors who like mild weather and four distinct seasons can get outdoors during most of the year.
  • The air quality in Lackawanna County is hit and miss. Particle pollution received an "A" from the American Lung Association, but their ozone pollution levels only rated a "D."
  • Clarks Summit has no facilities to choose from in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital specializing in brain health and dementia care located in Scranton or Wilkes-Barre.
