    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Kennett Square

    Kennett Square, a borough in the Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington Metro area of Chester County, Pennsylvania, is known as the mushroom capital of the world due to its mushroom farming industry. The community is also located just minutes from the famous Longwood Gardens, which features themed indoor and outdoor gardens. Seniors gain entrance to this popular point of interest for a reduced ticket price. 

    Over 11 percent of the borough's total population is over the age of 65. There are six assisted living facilities for seniors to choose from within the city proper and an additional 44 nearby. Assisted living facilities in Pennsylvania are officially called "Assisted Living Residences" or "Personal Care Homes," depending on the level of care they provide. Assisted living residences are licensed through the Department of Aging, Office of Long-Term Living, Division of Licensing, and personal care homes are licensed through the Department of Public Welfare, Adult Residential Licensing

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Kennett Square

    • The cost of living in Kennett Square is about 10 percent higher than the state and national medians, which may affect how much money seniors can afford for their assisted living budget. Among the biggest factors impacting the overall cost of living in the area is healthcare, which is about 15 percent more expensive than elsewhere in the country.
    • July highs in Kennett Square are around 85 degrees Fahrenheit and January lows are in the low-20s, making the region well-suited for seniors who enjoy seasonal weather. 
    • The American Lung Association gave Chester County an "F" for ozone pollution and an "A" for short-term particle pollution. Seniors should speak with their health practitioners to determine how the region's air quality will affect them, particularly if they have chronic respiratory conditions. 
    • Seniors in Kennett Square are not taxed on their Social Security benefits, their income from retirement accounts or income from pensions. 
    • Public bus service in Kennett Square is provided courtesy of the Transportation Management Association of Chester County, or TMACC. Seniors can use public transportation for free or a discounted fare when they show their state ID card.
    • The Kennett Square area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in West Grove.
