What to Consider About Assisted Living in Milton

A historic Pennsylvania borough, Milton is home to a sizable senior demographic that makes up nearly 20 percent of the town’s overall population. Milton is also home to two assisted living facilities that are regulated and licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services. There are another 21 assisted living facilities located nearby. These facilities are designed to provide seniors with assistance for activities and tasks associated with daily life. Also known in the state as personal care homes, these facilities may also offer more specialized care for residents with disabilities or conditions such as dementia.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Milton

  • Milton has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Milton Senior Action Center, an organization with social and recreational opportunities for seniors 55 and older. Hot meals and health screenings are also a feature of the center.

  • The Milton area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Geisinger Clinic, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

  • The cost of living index in Milton is 91, which is nine points lower than the national cost of living index. With lower costs, seniors living in Milton may retain more funds to help pay for assisted living.

  • Seniors can also save money by living in Milton because the state of Pennsylvania does not tax seniors’ withdrawals from retirement or 401k accounts. Additionally, it does not tax social security checks.

  • Many seniors are concerned about residing in a safe community. Milton’s crime rate of 2,183 per 100,000 people is less than the national average, which is 2,837.

  • Unfortunately, Milton does not have public bus service. It is home to one Greyhound Bus Station served by Rabbittransit, which offers a Northumberland County Shared Ride program, a type of paratransit service.

Paying for Assisted Living in Milton
