What to Consider About Assisted Living in North Wales

The Office of Long-Term Living, Bureau of Human Services Licensing monitors and licenses assisted living communities in North Wales and throughout Pennsylvania. The agency provides regulation compliance guides for facilities to follow and a human services provider directory seniors can use to explore licensed communities aligning with their care needs. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in North Wales

 

  • The cost of living in North Wales is about 12% higher than the national average. The city reports higher prices for housing, utilities and transportation, but it offers health care for about 3% less than national figures. Moving to assisted living may reduce monthly expenses, as most communities offer fixed monthly rates for basic necessities, including housing, meals and utilities. 
  • North Wales has a humid continental climate with four distinct seasons. Summers are hot and humid, reaching highs of 80 degrees Fahrenheit, while winters are cold and experience about 22 inches of average annual snowfall. The city also has 207 sunny days per year, offering ample opportunities for seniors to enjoy outdoor recreation. Assisted living communities typically offer a mix of indoor and outdoor activities to accommodate the weather. 
  • North Wales doesn't have a local hospital, but it's home to medical centers offering full-service primary physician care. Seniors can also travel about 3 miles to Jefferson Lansdale Hospital, a 140-bed facility providing a range of services, including cardiology and 24-hour emergency care. Additionally, some assisted living communities have on-site medical staff or coordinate appointments with external providers for residents as needed. 
  • Crime rates are low in North Wales compared to national figures, making it a safe community for seniors seeking long-term care. Based on a 100-point index, North Wales ranks at 12 for violent crimes and 23.5 for property crimes, while the United States lands at 22.7 and 35.4, respectively. Assisted living communities also use security measures, such as 24-hour surveillance, for resident safety. 
  • Pennsylvania is tax-friendly for adults aged 60 and older, exempting Social Security, retirement payments and pension income from state income taxes. Additionally, it doesn't tax retirement account withdrawals and has one of the lowest sales tax rates in the country. Seniors can use these tax breaks to pay for assisted living.
