    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Mechanicsburg

    The small town of Mechanicsburg rests in the Cumberland Valley region of Pennsylvania. The Allegheny Mountains and Blue Ridge Mountains create a beautiful natural border for the area that deflects the bitter winter weather for the city. The breathtaking scenery and outdoor recreational opportunities of the area are perfect day trip options for seniors residing in assisted living communities. The Pennsylvania Department of Aging licenses two types of assisted living residences. ARLs are divided based on the services offered by the facility and the kind of housing units that are provided. Seniors seeking an assisted living facility in the area will find 64 to choose from, including seven in the Mechanicsburg.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Mechanicsburg

    • Mechanicsburg is spared the harsh climate experienced in areas to the north and west of city. The Allegheny Mountains shield seniors living in Mechanicsburg, so they enjoy a milder winter than those living just 100 miles away. Summers are warm, with a July high temperature around 85 degrees.

    • One of the benefits for seniors residing in Mechanicsburg is the low crime rate. Violent crime in the city is lower by 8.9 than the national average and also lower than the Pennsylvania average by 4.8. The city has a property crime rate of 37, which is also lower than that of the nation and state. 

    • Mechanicsburg seniors pay about the same sales and income tax rates as those living in most American cities. However, Pennsylvania offers its residents additional benefits. The state exempts all income from Social Security, 401(k)s, and IRAs from taxation, and pension income is also exempt for those age 60 and older.

    • The Mechanicsburg cost of living index is lower than both the state and national averages. Seniors pay around seven percent lower health care rates in the city. 

    • The Mechanicsburg area is home to world-class medical facilities, including UPMC Pinnacle West Shore Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    • Mechanicsburg has an array of community resources for seniors, including Messiah Lifeways, an organization that offers a diverse selection of activities to keep adults over 55 active and independent, as well as a downtown senior center.
