    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Palmyra

    The borough of Palmyra, which was established in 1760, is home to more than 7,500 people. The borough has a large senior community, which comprises over 18 percent of the total population. While this community is small, it still affords seniors plenty of assisted living options. There are three assisted living facilities within Palmyra and another 26 nearby for seniors who want more options.

    In Palmyra, as in all of the state, assisted living facilities are classified into two categories depending on the care they are licensed to provide. Assisted living residences, which provide supplemental health services along with assisted living services, are licensed by the Department of Aging, Office of Long-Term Living, Division of Licensing. Personal care homes, which are for seniors who do not require supplemental health services, are licensed by the Department of Public Welfare, Adult Residential Licensing.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Palmyra

    • The overall cost of living in Palmyra is on par with the national average. However, seniors can expect to spend about 15 percent more on medical expenses, which may be a consideration for those with chronic conditions. 
    • Palmyra's summers are warm, rainy and humid, and winters are cold, which may be a consideration for seniors who prefer a mild climate. Over the course of the year, temperatures range from 23 degrees to 85 degrees Fahrenheit. 
    • Lebanon County's air quality is very poor, receiving an F for ozone pollution and an F for short-term particle pollution from the American Lung Association. Poor air quality can negatively affect seniors who suffer from diseases like lung cancer, COPD or cardiovascular disease.
    • Pennsylvania exempts all income from retirement accounts and Social Security, as well as income from pensions for those over 60. This may let seniors put more money toward assisted living. 
    • The overall crime rate in Palmyra is 42 percent lower than the nationwide average, making the city safer than 49 percent of other U.S. cities. This safe community is well-suited for seniors who enjoy being out alone. 
    • The Palmyra area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Hershey.
