What to Consider About Assisted Living in Harleysville

The Pennsylvania Department of Human Services licenses all assisted living facilities in Harleysville and requires them to follow rules regarding nutrition and medication services, staffing and the scope of care they must provide. The department also publishes a list of all licensed assisted living facilities in the state, and it fields complaints from assisted living residents, visitors and staff.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Harleysville

 

  • Harleysville lacks a hospital, but fortunately, assisted living residents have access to diverse medical services in nearby hospitals, such as Grand View Health in Sellersville and Jefferson Lansdale Hospital in Lansdale. Additionally, many residential care facilities provide transportation services to local medical offices and pharmacies, making it easy to obtain necessary services.

 

  • Seniors in Harleysville can obtain curb-to-curb transportation services through TransNet’s Senior Shared Ride Program. This service can supplement what individuals obtain through assisted living and enable them to attend medical appointments, errands and recreational outings. Riders can schedule services from 1 day to 2 weeks in advance by calling the office at (215) 542-7433.

 

  • Compared to the state and nation as a whole, Harleysville is an expensive place to live. High housing costs, grocery expenses and utilities contribute to an overall cost of living that exceeds the national norm by 14% and the Pennsylvania average by 20 percentage points. Fortunately, many assisted living facilities have all-inclusive pricing, which may help seniors save money on monthly living expenses.

 

  • Seniors aged 60 and over don’t pay state income taxes on any pension income or withdrawals from retirement savings accounts, and the state doesn’t levy any taxes on Social Security benefits. This may save individuals hundreds of dollars in taxes and enable some to afford assisted living expenses in Harleysville.

 

  • Harleysville has warm, humid summers with temperatures ranging from lows of 56 degrees Fahrenheit to highs of 85 degrees Fahrenheit, although temperatures may occasionally reach into the 90s. Winters are cold, with temperatures falling between 24 and 48 degrees Fahrenheit, and residents see about 23 inches of annual snowfall. This may appeal to prospective assisted living residents who enjoy experiencing distinct seasons.

 

  • Harleysville has moderate air quality, although seniors sensitive to environmental pollutants may want to track high-ozone or high-particle days. The American Lung Association reports about 7 days annually in which ozone or particle levels are high enough to affect the health of vulnerable individuals, such as seniors, and it gives the region a C for ozone pollution and a B for particle pollution.
