    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Pittston

    Pittston, PA, sits beside the Susquehanna River, near Wilkes-Barre and became known during the Age of Anthracite as a coal producer. Today, 7,755 people call the city home, and 16.7% of them are aged 65 and older. These seniors can visit the Pittston senior center for informative programs, exercise, arts, and other activities and services. To serve those in the community who need help with the tasks of daily living, there are two assisted living centers in Pittston and 14 more in nearby communities. 

    In Pittston and the rest of Pennsylvania, the Department of Aging, Office of Long-Term Living, Division of Licensing oversees assisted living residences (ALRs), as assisted living facilities are known in the state.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Pittston

    • Pennsylvania seniors living in Pittston and elsewhere are in a moderately tax-friendly state. Seniors are exempt from taxes on retirement income, such as IRAs, Social Security or 401(k)s, which may help save extra money for assisted living expenses.
    • The cost of living in Pittston is 80.3, nearly 20 points less than the state or national average of 100. This is driven by the low cost of housing, which is less than half the state average. Lower housing costs may indirectly impact the operational expenses of assisted living facilities and the monthly fees residents pay.
    • Pittston seniors may be relieved to know that property crime is lower and violent crime is on par with their respective national averages. The city's violent crime rate is 13.1, compared to a U.S. average of 22.7, and its property crime rate is 37.7, while the U.S. rate is 35.4.
    • The city offers seniors four seasons of varying weather, with average temperatures ranging between 16 and 82, which is equal to state averages. Seniors touring assisted living facilities may wish to ask what steps are taken to ensure residents' comfort when high and low temperatures occur.
    • The quality of the air and water in Pittstown for seniors and other residents is good. The air quality is 61, compared to the U.S. average of 58, and the water quality of 79 is much higher than the national average of 55.
    • Pittston is home to world-class medical facilities, including the Moses Taylor Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
