What to Consider About Assisted Living in Collegeville

The Bureau of Human Services Licensing, part of the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services’ Office of Long-Term Living, licenses assisted living communities in Collegeville and throughout the state. The bureau also ensures facilities comply with relevant rules and regulations, and it investigates complaints against providers.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Collegeville

 

  • Collegeville is a suburb of Philadelphia, which is a member of the AARP Age-Friendly Network. Membership indicates the city is dedicated to becoming more livable for people of all ages, which positively impacts residents' health and comfort. Local initiatives include enhanced lighting in public spaces, better public transportation connections and subsidized rent programs for seniors on low incomes.

 

  • The area experiences hot, humid summers and cold, snowy winters. July is typically the hottest month, with temperatures between 66 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit. January is usually the coldest month, with temperatures ranging from 24 to 39 degrees Fahrenheit.

 

  • Residents of Collegeville have convenient access to several 24-hour health care facilities within 10 miles: Pottstown Hospital, which has a nationally recognized cancer center; Phoenixville Hospital, with an award-winning cardiovascular program; and Suburban Community Hospital, which offers award-winning stroke services and holds Level 3 Geriatric Emergency Department Accreditation. Even more facilities lie a little farther away. Notably, the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania is among the highest-ranking hospitals in the United States, recognized for high performance in several medical specialties, including geriatrics, oncology, cardiology and orthopedics.

 

  • With lower-than-average crime rates, Collegeville offers a relatively reassuring environment for retirees. On a 100-point scale, violent crime in Collegeville ranks 9.2, lower than the U.S. average of 22.7. For property crime, Collegeville scored 18.1, a significant 17.3 points lower than the national ranking. Indeed, statistics indicate that Collegeville is safer than 82% of all neighborhoods nationwide.

 

  • Although the cost of living in Collegeville is some 14% higher than the national average and around 20% more than the statewide average, the lack of state income tax on most retirement funds, pensions and Social Security benefits may help seniors stretch their resources further. Additionally, older adults on low incomes may qualify for financial aid, such as Medical Assistance — the state Medicaid program — or the dual Medicaid-Medicare Living Independence for the Elderly (LIFE) managed care program.
