What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lafayette Hill

Named after a French General who played a key role in the Revolutionary War, Lafayette Hill is an unincorporated area in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. Most of Lafayette lies in Whitemarsh Township, which has just under 18,000 people,18.7 percent of whom are 65 or older.

To accommodate those in this demographic looking for assistance with the tasks of daily living, Lafayette Hill has three assisted living residences, with 76 more in nearby communities, such as Blue Bell and Abington. These facilities are overseen by the Department of Aging, Office of Long Term Living, as are assisted living residences (ALRs) throughout the commonwealth.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lafayette Hill

  • The cost of living in Lafayette Hill is 140.3, much higher than both the state and national averages of 100, driven by housing costs that are double the national average. However, average transportation, utilities and other costs are also very high in Lafayette Hills. This may make it harder for seniors on a budget to afford monthly ALR fees.
  • At 13.1, Lafayette Hills' violent crime rate is much lower than the U.S. average of 22.7. The unincorporated area has a property crime rate of 19.2, which is far lower than the national average of 35.4. Despite Lafayette Hills' great crime stats, seniors may want to ask what precautions are taken to  ensure the safety and security of residents in ALRs they tour.
  • With an average January low of 22 and average July high of 88, Lafayette Hills experiences hot and cold temperature extremes and four seasons. Seniors who enjoy the change of scenery can take day trips with family members to view autumn foliage and summer mountain greenery.
  • Lafayette Hills' air quality of 56 is slightly below the national median of 58, according to the National Air Toxics Assessment used by the EPA. This may help ALR residents breath easier on typical days.
  • Seniors in Lafayette Hills and the rest of Pennsylvania receive a tax exemption of Social Security income and retirement accounts. Seniors age 60 or older also get a tax exemption for pensions. 
  • Lafayette Hills has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Philadelphia, 40 minutes away.
