What to Consider About Assisted Living in Columbia

Columbia, a borough situated in the Sayre Metro area of Bradford County, Pennsylvania, can trace its history back to its Native American inhabitants that occupied the land around the Susquehanna River. Today, the community is home to over 10,000 people, roughly 16 percent of whom are over the age of 65. To support the senior community, Columbia has three assisted living facilities. Seniors who broaden their search to the surrounding community will find an additional 56 facilities to choose from.

In Columbia, the official licensure terms for assisted living facilities are "Assisted Living Residences" and "Personal Care Homes," depending on the level of care they provide. Assisted living residences are licensed through the Department of Aging, Office of Long-Term Living, Division of Licensing, while personal care homes are licensed through the Department of Public Welfare, Adult Residential Licensing

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Columbia

  • With a cost of living that is 12 percent below the state and national average, Columbia is an affordable community for seniors. Seniors can expect to spend about 12 percent less on transportation expenses, though groceries and healthcare costs a little more.
  • Columbia has warm, mild summers with highs around 80 degrees Fahrenheit and cold, snowy winters with lows around 14 degrees. The region receives about 39 inches of snow annually, which may be a consideration for seniors who drive.
  • The air quality in Bradford County is good, which may be beneficial for seniors with respiratory or cardiovascular conditions. The county received an "A" from the American Lung Association, indicating that the air is safe for seniors to breathe. 
  • Pennsylvania seniors do not pay income tax on their Social Security benefits, retirement income or pension income. This may leave more money in their budgets for assisted living expenses.
  • The rate of violent crime in Columbia is slightly higher than the national average, while the property crime rate is lower. Although most assisted living facilities have security systems in place, seniors may want to practice caution when they're out alone.
  • The Columbia area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Columbia Regional Health Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
