    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lower Burrell

    Located 18 miles northeast of downtown Pittsburgh, Lower Burrell, Pennsylvania, is situated in the Appalachian Plateau next to the Allegheny River. There are 47 assisted living facilities in the greater Lower Burrell area that provide accommodations for the city's 20 percent senior population. Rather than being called assisted living facilities in the state of Pennsylvania, these centers are referred to as personal care homes (PCH) in Lower Burrell and are monitored by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services. PCHs are defined by the state as residences that are licensed to provide shelter, meals, supervision and assistance with personal care tasks.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lower Burrell

    • Throughout the United States, certain states are considered more retirement tax-friendly than others. Because Pennsylvania doesn't tax residents' social security income, Lower Burrell offers seniors the opportunity to enjoy tax cuts and spend more on assisted living costs.
    • The cost of living in Lower Burrell is 11 percent cheaper than the national average cost of living. Seniors will find that though grocery, health and transportation costs are cheaper than the average costs throughout Pennsylvania, the housing costs make the biggest difference in making Lower Burrell affordable (21 percent cheaper than Pennsylvania's average housing costs and 32 percent cheaper than the United States' average housing costs).
    • The Lower Burrell area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital, Allegheny Valley Hospital, located in Natrona Heights.
    • With a crime rate of 15 crimes per 1,000 residents, Lower Burrell is considered safer than nearly half of the cities across the country. Seniors have a 1 in 67 chance of becoming a victim of violent or property crime in Lower Burrell.
    • In Lower Burrell, winters are very cold and mostly cloudy, and summers tend to be warm and cloudy as well. Because the city experiences an average of 40 less sunny days than the national average, seniors who are seeking to enjoy the sunshine should look elsewhere for assisted living.
