    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lehighton

    Lehighton was originally settled by German brothers, and the nearby water source which could be used as source of power quickly drew more residents. Today, this settlement is a bustling borough with more than 5,000 residents, over 20 percent of which are seniors aged 65 years or older. To help provide care for these seniors, Lehighton has two assisted living facilities.

    The Department of Aging and Department of Public Welfare license and monitor assisted living facilities in Pennsylvania. These are designated as either adult care homes or assisted living residences or adult care homes, depending on the type of care provided. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lehighton

    • Pennsylvania's tax policies make it a desirable place for retirees. Retirement income from IRAs, 401(k)s and Social Security isn't taxed, and pension income for seniors is also exempt.
    • The Lehighton area is home to world-class medical facilities, including St. Luke's University Health Network, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Lehighton is serviced by the Carbon County Community Transit program, which offers free rides for seniors along fixed routes. Shared ride services are also available but are on a first-come, first-served basis and must be reserved in advance.
    • Lehighton has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Lehighton Senior Center, an organization that provides classes, activities, health screenings and transportation for local seniors who want to go on group trips.
    • When it comes to personal safety, Lehighton boasts low violent crime rates that are 20 percent lower than the state's average. However, the property crime rate is 27 percent higher than the Pennsylvania average, so seniors may want to take precautions to secure their personal belongings.
    • Lehighton's weather may make rain-sensitive conditions like arthritis worse. The area gets about 48 inches of rain per year, 10 more than the U.S. average, and only sees 196 sunny days a year, compared to the national average of 205.
