    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Philadelphia

    When the Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776, Philadelphia became the birthplace of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Seniors retiring to the area can continue to pursue happiness by exploring the city's museums, festivals and historic landmarks. The City of Brotherly Love is home to over 1.5 million people and almost 13 percent are aged 65 and over.

    There are 62 assisted living facilities in the Philadelphia area catering to seniors. Known as Assisted Living Residences in Pennsylvania, these facilities are licensed by the Department of Human Services' Office of Long-Term Living.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Philadelphia

    • The Philadelphia area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Pennsylvania Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • The Sperling index rates Philadelphia's overall cost of living at 111, which is 11 points higher than the national average. The cost of groceries are close to the national median, but healthcare costs are 16 points higher. Seniors with regular health expenses may find this impacts their budget.
    • Public transport in Philadelphia is available through SEPTA and riders aged 65 and over are eligible for free travel. Philadelphia also has the Shared-Ride program, a door-to-door, advance-reservation service available to residents aged 65 and older.
    • Philadelphia 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.
    • All forms of retirement income, including money from Social Security, pensions and retirement accounts, is exempt from state income tax in Pennsylvania for people aged over 59.5. Sales taxes in the state are also relatively low, which allows Philadelphia seniors to put more money towards assisted living.
    • Philadelphia has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Philadelphia Corporation for Aging, an organization that coordinates a range of services to help seniors live independently as well as more than nine senior centers.

    • Long-Term Care Insurance
    • Reverse Mortgage
