    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Middletown

    Middletown, Pennsylvania, was originally settled by William Penn in 1960, but the town played a part in the Revolutionary War, and seniors interested in history can visit some of the area's historical sites. For its almost 20 percent senior population, Middletown has two assisted living facilities. There are an additional 20 facilities in nearby communities like Harrisburg and Hershey.

    In Pennsylvania, assisted living facilities are called either assisted living residences or adult care homes, depending on the level of care the facility provides. Assisted living residences are licensed by the Department of Aging, and adult care homes are licensed by the state's Department of Public Welfare.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Middletown

    • Middletown is located in Dauphin County, which receives low ratings from the American Lung Association when it comes to air quality. The county got a D rating for both ozone and particle pollution rates, making the air less than ideal for seniors with respiratory conditions.
    • Pennsylvania is a tax-friendly state for seniors because retirement income for Social Security, 401(k)s, IRAs and pensions aren't taxed. Sales tax rates are also some of the lowest in the United States, which translates to more money left in the budget.
    • The Middletown area is home to world-class medical facilities, including UPMC Pinnacle, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Middletown has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Middletown Senior Center, an organization that helps connects seniors with like-minded individuals for fellowship and facilitates activities throughout the year.
    • Middletown is serviced by the Capital Area Transit system, which helps seniors get around town. Seniors aged 65 years or older can ride the bus system for free along fixed routes.
    • The weather in Middletown can be a challenge, especially for seniors who like to take advantage of outdoor activities. Summer highs only get into the mid 70s, and winter highs run around the freezing mark.
