What to Consider About Assisted Living in Media

Located just 13 miles east of Philadelphia on land that once belonged to William Penn, the one-time stop on the underground railroad of Media, Pennsylvania, markets itself as "Everybody's Hometown." With 15 percent of the population being over the age of 65, the community has a lot to offer seniors looking for assisted living facilities. The borough itself is home to six ALFs, with 34 more being located in the surrounding area.

As with all ALFs in Pennsylvania, those in Media fall into one of three categories recognized by the state. There are Assisted Living Residences (ALR), Personal Care Homes (PCH) and Adult Foster Care Homes (AFCH). These are governed by the Pennsylvania Department of Aging, the Department of Public Welfare and Area Agencies on Aging, respectively. Each offers similar services, such as help with bathing, eating, dressing and grooming, with the main differences being ALRs are allowed to offer nursing care and an AFCH is limited to only three residents. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Media

  • With a cost of living index 20 points above the national average, Media wouldn't be described as an economical community to live in. For seniors with limited economic resources, other locales might be a better option.

  • The property crime rate in Media is 24.5, 13.5 points lower than the median for the country. However, its violent crime rate exceeds the national average by 11.4 points. For seniors worried about personal security, this could be a concern.

  • Media enjoys a fairly moderate climate. Summer highs run in the mid-80s and winter lows drop into the mid-20s, but the city only receives an average of 12 inches of snow a year, 14 inches less than the national mean. For active seniors, this lack of snow could make it easier to enjoy the outdoors in winter.

  • Media received an EPA air quality rating of 46, a full 12 points worse than the average for the country. For seniors with respiratory or allergy issues, this could present a problem.

  • The city of Media has plenty of cultural activities for seniors to enjoy. The Media Arts Council holds exhibits and classes throughout the year, and The Philadelphia Orchestra, one of America's premier orchestras, is only minutes down the road by trolley.

  • The Media area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Riddle Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
