    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Donora

    In the 1940s, Donora played a pivotal role in raising awareness of the dangers of smog and the need for clean air, and today, more than 4,600 residents get to enjoy the area. For those who are 65 years or older, Donora has two assisted living residences, with more than an additional two dozen in nearby cities like South Park and Clairton.

    Assisted living facilities in Donora are usually referred to as assisted living residences, although adult care homes also technically fall under this designation. For licensing, regulating and monitoring, these facilities must report to the Department of Aging or the Department of Public Welfare depending on the types of care provided. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Donora

    • The air quality in Donora received a passing grade of a B from the American Lung Association for its 24-hour particle pollution levels, but the ozone levels are still problematic, receiving a D grade. This may be something of which seniors with pulmonary issues need to be aware.
    • Pennsylvania doesn't tax Social Security income or retirement income from pensions, IRAs and 401(k)s, which leaves more money for seniors to live off of if they are on a fixed income. 
    • Donora has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Monongahela.
    • The Mid Mon Valley Transit system helps Donora's residents get around, and seniors in particular can take benefit from this public transit option. Free rides are available for seniors who apply for a Free Transit card.
    • Donora has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Southwestern Pennsylvania Area Agency on Aging, an organization that helps local seniors connect with each other and programs available throughout the community, as well as one senior center.
    • Donora has a low cost of living for seniors who want to try to stretch their budgets as far as possible. Overall cost of living is 17 percent less than both the national average and that of the state of Pennsylvania.
