To serve this growing community, there are two assisted living facilities in Doylestown with a further 47 located nearby. Each of these facilities is licensed and regulated by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Doylestown

  • In terms of overall community safety, Doylestown has a positive reputation as a safe city. Its annual average crime rate of 722 per 100,000 people is far below the national average which is 2,837 per 100,000 people.

  • Unlike several states, Pennsylvania does not tax social security checks. This may leave seniors with more funds in their budgets that can be used for assisted living costs. Additionally, Pennsylvania does not typically tax seniors’ withdrawals from work retirement or 401k accounts.

  • While seniors may save money on taxes in the state, they could wind up paying more for living expenses. Doylestown has a cost of living index of 136, which is considerably higher than the national average of 100.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Doylestown

Pennsylvania is one of a handful of states that doesn't offer public assistance for care within an assisted living facility. The state does offer waivers for seniors who need support for in-home care or for seniors who require skilled nursing home care. For seniors receiving SSI benefits, the state may provide a supplement to pay for care at an assisted living facility. However, there's limited funding, so many seniors are placed on a waitlist until funds become available.

Learn more about these programs, plus who’s eligible, on our Assisted Living in Pennsylvania page.
