    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Ellwood City

    Roughly 30 miles from Pittsburgh, Ellwood City boasts the small-town charm that many seniors enjoy, but also access to nearby urban services and amenities such as world-class health care. Ellwood City is home to one assisted living facility, but there are another 19 within close proximity. These facilities are regulated by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services. Also referred to throughout the state as personal care homes, these facilities feature help for seniors with tasks and activities associated with daily living such as dressing and bathing. Some facilities also provide more specialized services to seniors who have dementia or a type of disability. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Ellwood City

    • The cost of living index in Ellwood City of 88 is less than the state and national average which are both 100. This is good news for seniors who are hoping to keep more money in their budgets.

    • Because the state of Pennsylvania does not tax social security checks or withdrawals from 401k and retirement accounts, seniors will have more money at their disposal to help pay for assisted living costs.

    • The Ellwood City area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Ellwood City Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    • Ellwood City has an array of resources for seniors, including the Ellwood City Challenges Center, which features educational programs, games such as cards and bingo, a computer lab, and book exchange program.

    • Seniors who prefer to rely on public transportation can use the New Castle Area Transit Authority that features fixed bus routes. Seniors 65 and over ride for free.

    • Ellwood City features a four-season climate, but seniors who dislike traversing in icy or snowy conditions should note that winters can include extreme inclement weather with an average January temperature low of 16 degrees.

    Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Ellwood City

    At this time, the state of Pennsylvania does not provide financial assistance that seniors can use to help pay for care at an assisted living facility. Current state waivers may be used for nursing home care or home support, but not assisted living within a facility. Still, some seniors who qualify and receive SSI benefits may be eligible to receive a monthly supplement that can be used to pay for care at an assisted living facility. 

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