What to Consider About Assisted Living in Pottsville

Home to the Yuengling Brewery and the Jerry's Classic Cars and Collectibles Museum, Pottsville, Pennsylvania, has plenty of seniors to do. The Schuylkill County seat is home to 13,555 people, 19.7% of whom are aged 65 and over, and the two assisted living facilities in town help seniors who can no longer take care of the activities of daily living on their own.

In Pennsylvania, including Pottsville, assisted living facilities are known as assisted living residences (ALR). These facilities are licensed and regulated by the state's Department of Aging, Office of Long-Term Living, Division of Licensing.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Pottsville

  • In Pottsville and throughout Pennsylvania, seniors don't pay taxes on retirement income, including IRAs, Social Security and 401(k)s. Pension income for seniors over 60 is also not taxed, so seniors may have more money to spend on assisted living costs.
  • At 75, Pottsville's cost of living is nearly 25% cheaper than state and national averages. This is driven by low housing costs of 25, a third of the state average and a quarter of the national average. However, seniors can expect to pay up to 20% more for healthcare.
  • Although the city's crime rates are lower than the national averages, seniors may still want to ask what security measures are taken to keep residents safe in prospective assisted living facilities. Pottsville violent crime is 20.7, two points below the U.S. average, and its property crime rate is 31.5, almost four points lower than the national median.
  • The annual temperature range in Pottsville is 20-84 degrees. This is standard for the state, but Pottsville has just 193 sunny days, eight days less than the national median. With 50 inches of rain and 37 inches of snow each year, the city sidewalks could be challenging.
  • Pottsville's air quality of 56 is two points lower than the country's average of 58. This is based on the EPA's National Air Toxics Assessment, which measures hazardous air pollutants that cause respiratory illness and cancer. This may make the city a comfortable place to breathe for those with COPD and asthma.
  • The Pottsville area is home to world-class medical facilities, including the Lehigh Valley Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
