    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Downingtown

    Downingtown, Pa., is a borough located on the Delaware River across from the New Jersey border. This community is home to fewer than 8,000 people, of which roughly 20 percent are over the age of 60. Because of the borough's small size, it offers just two assisted living communities for seniors from which to choose. There are another 35 facilities in the surrounding area. These communities are classified into two categories, depending on the level of care they provide, and each category is regulated by a different state governing agency. Assisted living residences, which are for those who need supplemental health care services, are licensed by the Department of Aging, Office of Long-Term Living, Division of Licensing. Personal care homes, which are for seniors who do not need nursing home-level care, are licensed by the Department of Public Welfare, Adult Residential Licensing

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Downingtown

    • While Downington's seasonal temperatures are on par with the nation's average, the city scores 13 points lower than the U.S. average on Sperling's Comfort Index because of its relatively high humidity levels. This may be a consideration for seniors who enjoy being outside. 

    • The cost of living in Downington is higher than the overall national average, and seniors can expect to spend nearly 9 percent more on groceries, 4 percent more on health care and 6 percent more on transportation than they would elsewhere.

    • The overall crime rate in Downington is about 25 percent higher than the state average, but roughly 9 percent below the national average. 

    • Pennsylvania seniors do not pay taxes on income they receive from Social Security, retirement accounts or pensions. This may allow them to put more money toward the cost of assisted living.

    • Public transportation in Downington is provided courtesy of Transportation Management Association of Chester County, or TMACC. Seniors age 65 and over are eligible to receive a free transit card.

    • The Downington area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Coatesville.
