Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Dunlevy

  • On a scale of 1 (worst) to 100 (best), Dunlevy ties the U.S. average of 58 in air quality, as measured by the EPA. This means that seniors with asthma and other respiratory illnesses may breathe as easily here as in most cities across the country.
  • At less than 40% of the U.S. average, low housing costs in Dunlevy largely account for its cost of living rating of 85, compared to state and national averages of 100. This may help families of seniors in assisted living facilities find more room in the budget for monthly fees.
  • With a temperature range of 21 to 84 degrees, Dunlevy's climate is on par with state averages. It also matches the national average rainfall of 38 inches per year. Seniors may find the temperatures about as comfortable as many cities in the U.S.
  • Dunlevy's violent crime rate is 11.1, which is half the U.S. average of 22. Its property crime rate is 20.1, more than 15 points lower than the national average. Despite the low crime rates, seniors may still want to find out what security measures are in place at facilities they tour.
  • Pennsylvania seniors, including those in Johnstown, live in a moderately tax-friendly state. Seniors are exempt from taxes on retirement income such as IRAs, Social Security or 401(k)s, which may help save a little more money for assisted living expenses.
  • Dunlevy has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Belle Vernon.
