    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Franklin

    Franklin is a small city of just 300 people, about 83 of whom are aged 65 and over. In spite of its small size, it's rich in cultural amenities that provide seniors with plenty of opportunities to explore the community. It's also home to the Barrow-Civic Theatre, which hosts live entertainment throughout the year. Seniors aged 60 and over are eligible to receive discounted admission on FCOA productions

    Seniors who need assistance with some daily living activities may reside in one of Franklin's two assisted living facilities. These facilities are licensed by either the Department of Aging or the Department of Public Welfare, depending on where they're classified as assisted living residences or personal care homes. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Franklin

    • Franklin seniors do not pay state income tax on any retirement income, including Social Security benefits, pension income or withdrawals from retirement accounts. This may allow them to more easily afford local assisted living expenses. 
    • The Franklin area has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Seneca.
    • The cost of living in Franklin is over 25% lower than the state and national averages, which may make the city a financially viable option for seniors with fixed incomes. While Franklin's overall affordability is largely due to low housing costs, seniors may also expect to spend about 20% less on healthcare here than in the average Pennsylvania city. 
    • While Franklin's property crime rate is on par with the nationwide average, rating 35.1 on a 100-point index, its violent crime rate is 16.7, which is several points lower than the average U.S. city. This may provide peace of mind for safety-minded retirees and their families.
    • Summers in Franklin are comfortable with highs averaging 80 degrees, but winters tend to be harsh with lows in the teens and an average snowfall of 75 inches. Icy conditions may be a consideration for seniors who still do their own driving.  
    • On a health scale of 1 to 100, Franklin's air quality ranks several points higher than the national average of 58, at 66. Seniors who have respiratory or cardiovascular conditions that are worsened by poor air quality may find Franklin to be a good option.
