What to Consider About Assisted Living in Fayetteville

Fayetteville is a medium-sized town on the forested road between Chambersburg and Gettysburg. Home to just 20,000 people, 18% of whom are seniors aged 65 and over, the area in and around Fayetteville has 41 assisted living facilities where local seniors can live as comfortably and independently as their health allows. These facilities, like all residential care communities throughout the state, are inspected and licensed through the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services.
