    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Macungie

    Macungie was founded in 1776 and is the second oldest suburb of Leigh County. As such the borough name "Macungie" comes from an indigenous word meaning "feeding place of the bears," which explains why the town's seal has a bear on it. Today, the town residents don't have to worry about bears, though, when they choose from the three assisted living facilities available in Macungie or the 94 nearby assisted living communities in other developed towns like Bethlehem, Boyerstown or Harleysville. These assisted living facilities all provide room and board within a safe residential environment, with personal care services available that include medication management and assistance with the activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing and grooming. In Macungie, as in the rest of Pennsylvania, assisted living residences are licensed by the state Department of Human Services.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Macungie

    • The nearby mountains shelter Macungie from harsh winter weather, keeping the borough warmer and milder than the weather experienced in nearby Philadelphia, though snow and freezing rain occur. Summer tends to be hot and humid, with frequent, heavy thunderstorms, and spring storms sometimes cause flooding.
    • Macungie is located in Lehigh County, which is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning that its elected leadership “has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages,” according to AARP.
    • The cost of living in Macungie is 2.1 percent below the average cost of living in the United States, making it an attractive location for seniors living on a fixed budget.
    • The Lehigh and Northampton Transportation Authority (LANTA) provides flexible bus service via reservation with connections to fixed-route buses throughout the Lehigh Valley. Seniors ride for free when they show their Pennsylvania Senior Travel ID.
    • Macungie has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Lehigh County Aging and Adult Services Department, an organization that provides health insurance counseling, protective services, and prescription discount cards. While there are no senior centers in Macungie, 11 are available throughout the Lehigh Valley.

(These programs shouldn't be confused with Medicaid's PACE program.) The state also provides a supplement to those who receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
