What to Consider About Assisted Living in Clearfield

The Borough of Clearfield is the seat of Clearfield County, Pennsylvania, and home to about 6,200 residents, nearly 20% of whom are seniors. These seniors are served by the Clearfield County Area Agency on Aging, an organization that provides advocacy, information and referrals, as well as one senior center

Seniors who need help with daily living activities and no longer wish to bear the responsibilities of homeownership may transition to assisted living. In Clearfield, as is the case throughout the state, assisted living facilities are licensed through the Department of Aging as assisted living residences or the Department of Public Welfare as personal care homes. There are two assisted living facilities in Clearfield and one in nearby Curwensville.   

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Clearfield

  • On average, living expenses in Clearfield are about 25% lower than the state and nation as a whole. While this is mainly due to the very low cost of housing, healthcare is also relatively affordable at 6% lower than the national average and 10% lower than the statewide average. This may appeal to budget-conscious seniors.  
  • Crime is a little more prevalent in Clearfield than in the average U.S. city. The community's violent crime rate is 37, which is about 15 points higher than the national average, and the property crime rate is 10 points higher than average at 45.5. Seniors may want to take advantage of facility-organized group outings and avoid going out alone late at night.  
  • Summers in Clearfield are mild with highs around 80 degrees, and winters are very cold with highs in the low-30s. To keep comfortable throughout the year, seniors may want to find an assisted living facility that provides individual climate control.  
  • Clearfield's air quality is slightly below the national average, rating 55 out of 100 on a health index. Seniors may want to stay indoors on high ozone and high pollen days, especially if they have a condition worsened by poor air quality. 
  • The Clearfield area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Penn Highlands Clearfield, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
