    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Kingston

    Kingston is a borough in Luzerne County, in northeast Pennsylvania. It’s credited with being the site of the first public school in that state and has a population of about 13,000 people, 21.9 percent of whom are senior citizens. Seniors in need of help with daily tasks can choose from 17 assisted living facilities, three within Kingston and 14 others in neighboring towns like Wilkes-Barre. The Department of Human Services regulates assisted living facilities, officially known as assisted living residences, in Kingston and elsewhere in Pennsylvania. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Kingston

    • Kingston has a humid continental climate, meaning that it has four distinct seasons with cold winters. Snowfall can be heavy in January, with an average snowfall of 13.5 inches. However, seniors are generally comfortable outdoors from May to September.
    • The overall cost of living in Kingston is low, at 85 percent of the national average. Housing is particularly low at 58 percent of the national average, and utilities are the highest expense at seven percent above the national average. Management of heating and cooling costs will be essential for seniors living on a budget in Kingston.
    • Kingston is safer than about one-third of all U.S. cities, although its overall crime rate is about average for Pennsylvania as a whole. The crime rate in Kingston is 20.7 crimes per thousand people per year, compared to Pennsylvania’s annual average of 20.6 crimes per thousand people. Seniors who are already living in Pennsylvania may not have particular concerns about crime.
