    What to Consider About Assisted Living in East Stroudsburg

    East Stroudsburg, which was established back in 1870, covers an area of about 2.5 square miles and is home to over 10,000 residents. The city has a relatively young population, as it is home to East Stroudsburg University, and less than 20 percent of the population is over the age of 60. Even so, the borough offers two assisted living facilities, and there are another eight facilities outside of the city proper.

    The state differentiates between two types of assisted living. The first category is assisted living residences, which are regulated by the Department of Aging, Office of Long-Term Living, Division of Licensing and provide supplemental health services along with supervision and assistance with daily living activities. The second category is personal care homes, which do not provide supplemental health services and are licensed through the Department of Public Welfare, Adult Residential Licensing

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in East Stroudsburg

    • East Stroudsburg has chilly, snowy winters, with lows in the upper teens and about 41 inches of snow annually. This may be a consideration for seniors who have respiratory illnesses that are exacerbated by cold temperatures. Summers are pleasant, however, with highs around 84 degrees.

    • While the overall cost of living in East Stroudsburg is about 5 percent below the U.S. average, this is mainly due to the low cost of housing. Seniors can expect to pay about 10 percent more for their groceries, 4 percent more for transportation and 8 percent more on miscellaneous goods and services here than they might elsewhere. 

    • Although the overall crime rate in East Stroudsburg is higher than the state average, it is lower than the U.S. average. A majority of the crimes are non-violent crimes, such as vehicle theft and burglary, so it's important that seniors take basic precautions to keep their belongings safe here.

    • The East Stroudsburg area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Lehigh Valley Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    • When it comes to taxes, Pennsylvania is a senior-friendly state. Seniors will not pay taxes on income from Social Security, pensions or retirement accounts.
