What to Consider About Assisted Living in Ephrata

Ephrata is a borough of about 14,000 people in Lancaster County, 38 miles southeast of Harrisburg. Its population grew rapidly from 1970 to 2000, although it has remained stable since then. The city's senior population is currently at 13.8 percent. Ephrata seniors will find 32 assisted living facilities in the Ephrata area, with four in the borough itself and the other 28 in nearby areas such as Lancaster and Lititz. Title 55, Chapter 2800 of the Pennsylvania State Code regulates assisted living residences in the state. In addition to providing a residence, these living facilities also provide seniors with assistance in daily living activities.
