Lancaster was ranked eighth worst city in the "year-round particle pollution" category and 13th worst in the short-term particle pollution category. As such, seniors with respiratory conditions should be mindful about spending too much time outdoors.

Seniors may feel at risk living in an assisted living facility in Lancaster as a result of these high crime rates.

  • The Lancaster area is home to world-class medical facilities, including the Lancaster General Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

  • Lancaster has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Lancaster Neighborhood Senior Center, an organization that as well as two other senior centers.
