    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Pottstown

    Pottstown, Pennsylvania, is situated alongside the Schuylkill River approximately 40 miles northwest of Philadelphia. Pottstown's 13.1 percent senior population is served by two assisted living facilities directly within the city and an additional 25 facilities nearby.

    Throughout Pottstown and the rest of the state of Pennsylvania, assisted living facilities are known as Personal Care Homes (PCHs) and are licensed and monitored by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services. PCHs in Pottstown are designated by the state as residences that provide shelter, meals, supervision and assistance with personal care tasks.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Pottstown

    • The climate in Pottstown is distinguished by mild to cool winters that average 30 degrees Fahrenheit and hot and humid summers that average 75 degrees. The city gets 10 fewer inches of snow than the annual national average snowfall, so seniors who are looking for a temperate climate with all four seasons might consider Pottstown.
    • The Pottstown area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Tower Health Pottstown Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • The state of Pennsylvania is considered retirement tax-friendly because it doesn't tax social security income. Cities such as Pottstown offer seniors the opportunity to enjoy tax cuts and save money.
    • Pottstown has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Tri-County Active Adult Center, an organization that offers a variety of programs that address issues such as health and wellness, adult education and socialization.
    • More than 99 percent of cities and towns within Pennsylvania have a lower crime rate than in Pottstown, and seniors have a 1 in 21 chance of becoming a victim of violent or property crime in the area. Because of the high crime rates in Pottstown, it might be unsafe for seniors to travel alone after dark or to carry valuables with them.
    • In Pottstown, public transportation is offered by the Pottstown Area Rapid Transit (PART) system. Seniors qualify for free public transit with a valid Transit I.D. or Medicare Card. The nearest major airport is located in Allentown (Lehigh Valley International Airport), approximately 44 miles from Pottstown.
