    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Dallas

    Dallas is a township in the northern part of Luzerne County. It was founded in 1817 and is now home to around 9,000 people, almost 22 percent of whom are over 65. Seniors in the area can find accommodation in one of the town's three assisted living facilities. There are a further 20 in nearby communities including Kingston, Plymouth and Hunlock Creek. These facilities and licensed and monitored by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services' Office of Long-Term Living and are known as Assisted Living Residences (ALRs).

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Dallas

    • The Dallas area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Wilkes-Barre.
    • The Luzerne County Transportation Authority has a fixed-route service that goes through Dallas. Senior riders are eligible to travel for free. LCTA also has a shared ride program that offers curb-to-curb service for a small fee.
    • Dallas has cold winters with the low temperature in January averaging 15 degrees Fahrenheit. The town has 89 days of annual precipitation and there's an average of 45 inches of rain and 36 inches of snow per year, both higher than the national average. This may be challenging for seniors who enjoy spending time outdoors.
    • The overall crime rate in Dallas is just 10 crimes per 1,000 residents, lower than 68 percent of other U.S. communities. The violent crime rate is 2.17, around one point lower than the state average. Property crime occurs at a rate of 7.59, compared to the state average of 17.43. Safety-conscious seniors may feel comfortable choosing an assisted living community in Dallas.
    • Luzerne County, including Dallas, has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Luzerne County Area Agency on Aging, an organization that promotes independence and healthy lifestyles as well as more than one senior center.
    • Seniors aged over 60 years old do not have to pay income tax on money received from Social Security, pensions or retirement funds in Pennsylvania. Additionally, the state has one of the lowest sales tax rates in the country, allowing seniors to save more for their retirement budget.
