What to Consider About Assisted Living in Penn Hills

Penn Hills is located on the Allegheny River and is part of the Pittsburgh metropolitan area. As a Live Well Allegheny Community, the city is committed to improving the health and wellness of its residents. Pen Hills is home to a sizable senior population, with almost 20 percent of the municipality's 41,000 residents aged 65 and over.

Seniors in Penn Hills who are looking for some help with daily activities while remaining mostly independent can find accommodation at one of the 34 assisted living facilities in the area. Known as Assisted Living Residences (ALRs) in Pennsylvania, these facilities are licensed and monitored by the Department of Human Services' Office of Long-Term Living.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Penn Hills

  • The Penn Hills area is home to world-class medical facilities, including LifeCare Hospitals of Pittsburgh, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • The overall cost of living in Penn Hills is 86.5 on the Sperling index. This is 13.5 points below the U.S. average, which is largely due to the low cost of housing. Everyday expenses like groceries and healthcare are also lower than the national average, which may help seniors who are on a fixed income.
  • Seniors may find Penn Hills' cold winters challenging. The average low temperature in December is 21 degrees and the city gets around 28 inches of snow each year, 2 inches more than the U.S. average. Penn Hills only has around 162 days of sunshine each year, 43 fewer than the national average, which may disappoint seniors looking for a sunny retirement.
  • Allegheny County, including Penn Hills, is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning that its elected leadership “has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages,” according to AARP.
  • The Port Authority provides public transit in Penn Hills and riders aged 65 and over who have a valid ID can ride for free on all Port Authority vehicles. ACCESS Paratransit also provides a door-to-door, shared-ride service which seniors may wish to utilize.
  • Allegheny County, including Penn Hills, has poor air quality. The county received failing grades for all three categories measured in the State of the Air 2018 report. Seniors may find that this adversely affects their health, especially if they have an existing respiratory condition.
