Located just north of Philadelphia in scenic Bucks County, Sellersville is a quiet suburb filled with tree-lined streets and historic buildings. Of the 4,270 people who call Sellersville home, about 11% are seniors aged 65 and older. 

Assisted living is geared toward older adults who want to enjoy living in a community where supportive, compassionate staff is always available to lend a helping hand. Assisted living residents don’t need to worry about home maintenance, cooking or cleaning, making this level of care ideal for seniors who require some hands-on assistance with day-to-day activities, but who don’t need 24/7 medical care. In Sellersville, seniors pay an average of $3,550 per month for assisted living, which is below the Pennsylvania statewide average and the U.S. median.

This guide provides an overview of assisted living in Sellersville. It includes assisted living care costs with comparisons to other areas, the pros and cons of retiring to the area and free community-based resources for older adults and their caregivers.

What to Consider About Assisted Living in Sellersville

As with all assisted living facilities in Pennsylvania, Sellersville communities are inspected, licensed and regulated by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services. Inspectors conduct regular checks of all state-licensed residential facilities to ensure compliance with state laws designed to promote resident health and safety. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Sellersville

  • Sellersville is situated less than 40 miles north of downtown Philadelphia, making it easy for area seniors to access urban healthcare services and visit shopping centers and attractions without the high cost associated with living in a large city. 
  • Summers in Sellersville are warm and sunny, while winters are cold and snowy, making this area ideal for retirees who enjoy experiencing all four seasons. 
  • Sellersville is home to the Grand View Hospital, a large acute care facility with an emergency department, imaging services and outpatient clinic. 
  • Although the overall cost of living is somewhat higher than state and nationwide norms, the cost of health care services is over 6% below the national median and 3% lower than the Pennsylvania average. 
  • Violent and property crime rates in Sellersville are below the nationwide averages, which means residents in this area are less likely to be victims of crime than people in many other locations throughout the United States.
