    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Meadville

    Revered for its charming downtown historic district, the town of Meadville is the county seat of Crawford County and home to a vibrant community that includes a senior demographic of about 20 percent. In addition, Meadville is home to three assisted living facilities, which are licensed and regulated by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services. There are two other facilities located in close proximity to Meadville. These facilities are referred to as personal care homes and designed to help seniors with activities of daily life. Some may offer specialized medical care for seniors with conditions like dementia. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Meadville

    • Meadville features multiple cultural attractions that seniors enjoy like the Crawford County Historical Society and the Crawford County Convention and Visitors Center, which features year-round activities and events. Some of Meadville’s assisted living facilities organize trips to these and other regional attractions.

    • Meadville has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Meadville Senior Center that features a fitness room, library, craft room, game room and computer room. The center offers a daily lunch and also provides transportation for seniors wishing to attend.

    • If you are a senior living on a fixed income, you should note that Meadville has a cost of living index of 91, below the national average by nine points. The lower cost of living allows seniors to enjoy more money in their bank accounts.

    • Another way that seniors can save money is to take public transportation when getting around town. The Crawford Area Transportation Authority provides free bus rides for seniors aged 65 and older.

    • Meadville is home to world-class medical facilities, including Meadville Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    • Many seniors find the weather in Meadville to be comfortable during spring, summer, and fall. Winters, however, include extreme temperatures. The January average temperature is 16 degrees Fahrenheit. Ice storms and heavy snows can also make it difficult for seniors to get around Meadville during the cold season.

    Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Meadville

    Unfortunately, Pennsylvania is one of several states that do not offer any public financial assistance or waivers to help pay for care in an assisted living facility. Current waivers offer financial assistance for nursing home care or in-home assistance. Even so, seniors who get SSI benefits can still apply for state assistance to pay for a monthly supplement to defray the costs of an assisted living facility.
