What to Consider About Assisted Living in Shippensburg

Shippensburg is a borough in the Cumberland Valley that straddles Cumberland and Franklin Counties. Founded in 1730, it's the oldest community in the valley. Today Shippensburg is home to around 5,500 people and around 13 percent of the population is aged 65 or older.

There are two assisted living facilities in Shippensburg and another 16 in nearby communities offering accommodation to seniors wishing to retire in the area. These facilities are licensed and monitored by Pennsylvania's Department of Human Services' Office of Long-Term Living.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Shippensburg

  • Seniors who enjoy arts and culture can catch a show at the H. Ric Luhrs Performing Arts Center located at the Shippensburg University which welcomes a wide range of local and international acts each year. In addition, the Cumberland Valley has many art galleries for seniors to explore.

  • Public transport in Shippensburg is offered through Raider Regional Transit. This is a fixed-route service and buses can deviate from the normal route if they have advanced notice. Seniors can apply for the Senior Free Fare Program to ride for free.

  • In Pennsylvania income from retirement funds and Social Security is fully exempt from income tax, as is pension income for seniors over 60. In addition, sales taxes in the state are among the lowest in the country, which leaves more money in seniors' assisted living budget.

  • The Sperling index puts the cost of living in Shippensburg at 93, compared to the national average of 100. Despite this, seniors may still find the borough an expensive place to live; while groceries are cheap, the cost of health care is 13 percent higher than the national average.

  • The weather in Shippensburg can be quite cool, with July highs averaging 85 degrees and lows in January of around 22. Although rainfall in the borough is close to the national average, the town gets 34 inches of snow each year, 8 inches more than the U.S. average. This could keep seniors inside during the winter.

  • The Shippensburg area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Chambersburg.
