    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Latrobe

    Birthplace of the banana split at a local soda fountain in 1904, the city of Latrobe, Pa., still features sweet shops and candy stores. However, it also offers amenities designed to serve its sizable senior demographic that makes up roughly 25 percent of its population. In addition, Latrobe is home to five assisted living facilities that are regulated by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services. There are another four located nearby. Also known as personal care homes, these facilities provide assistance to seniors with activities associated with daily living. These activities typically include bathing, dressing and grooming.

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

    • Latrobe boasts a cost of living index of 90, which is considerably lower than the national average of 100. This savings may leave more money in seniors’ budgets for assisted living costs.
