lynnglad: " I am writing to express my sincere thanks the entire staff of Chestnut Knoll for the exceptional care my mother received while a resident there. It was a very difficult decision for us to move my mother out of her home of 60 years, and we were a little concerned as to how well she would adapt. My mother was a very private person and we knew she wouldn't engage very much. However, within days, my mother was comfortable and feeling warm and welcomed by the caring staff ... (read more)

Him1994: "We selected Greenfield of Perkiomen Valley for Mom because it was close to family and the staff was friendly. We had positive reviews from the staff at other assisted living homes. Mom says the food is fine. The facility is dated. It was the junior high school that I went to as a kid. It got rehabbed into a nursing home, but it's freshly painted. The activities seem to be regular and well attended. They play bingo, they paint rocks, and they play Wii bowling. She's attending... (read more)

Anne: "We visited the memory care section of The Landing of Collegeville and it was very nice. It's a new building, and the first time I went most of the residents were out on a field trip, so I didn't get to meet the activities director or the unit manager. It seemed very nice. They had a specific music program. They have a menu that residents can choose from every day which seemed good. They have a salon and a small garden off of the unit, but it's very bare, basically just grass... (read more)

Spring Mill Senior Living

$$$$
9 reviews
DD: "Spring Mill Senior Living was great, and the staff was very accommodating. The facility offered all the amenities that we wanted. They had the benefit of having a rehab facility on-site. It was an older facility. It was almost fully occupied, and it wasn't as geographically desirable to me and my siblings, but the facility itself was great, from the staff, to the food, and the activities."

Purplepolkadots: "I called to get some over the phone information. I assume it was the receptionist with whom I spoke to, she became frustrated when I would not divulge more information stated "goodbye" and hung up on me. I would like to think this is isolated to one employee, however this is not the first time I am hearing of unpleasant staff. Now I can say for myself, stay away from there!"

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.
