    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Duncansville

    The borough of Duncansville, established in 1830, was named for its founder, Samuel Duncan. Today, the community is home to just over 1,200 people, over a quarter of whom are aged 65 and over

    There are 16 assisted living facilities in the Duncansville region, including three in the city proper and more than a dozen in the surrounding area. These facilities may be referred to as personal care homes or assisted living residences depending on the populations they serve. Assisted living residences are licensed through the Department of Aging, and personal care homes are licensed through the Department of Public Welfare.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Duncansville

    • Pennsylvania does not impose a state income tax on Social Security benefits or income from retirement savings accounts, and Duncansville residents aged 60 and over do not pay state income tax on income from public or private pensions. This may let them put more money toward local assisted living expenses. 
    • In Blair County, where Duncansville is located, seniors enjoy relatively clean air. The American Lung Association gave this county an A for short-term particle pollution, a passing score for annual particle pollution and a C for ozone pollution.
    • Duncansville is a very safe community with an overall crime rate that is lower than 94% of all U.S. cities of all sizes, and its crime rate is among the lowest when compared to cities with similar population sizes. This may make the city a good option for seniors who are looking for a safe community to retire. 
    • The Duncansville area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Altoona.
    • Duncansville's summers are warm and relatively mild with July highs around 82 degrees, which may be well-suited for seniors who are sensitive to hot temperatures. Winters are very chilly, however, with January lows around 22 degrees.
    • With a cost of living that is about 15% below the national average, Duncansville may be a good option for seniors with restrictive budgets. Healthcare expenses are also about 15% below the U.S. average, which may appeal to seniors who are managing chronic medical conditions.
