What to Consider About Assisted Living in Stroudsburg

The borough of Stroudsburg, Pa., which was established in 1799, is a vibrant, diverse community that is home to several historic sites, including the Academy Hill Historic District and the Stroud Mansion. Seniors make up about 22 percent of the population of 5,444. To support its senior population, the city offers four assisted living communities, with another seven communities located in proximity. These facilities are classified in two categories depending on the care they provide. Assisted living residences, which provide supplemental health services along with assistance and supervision with the activities of daily living, are licensed by the Department of Aging, Office of Long-Term Living, Division of Licensing. Personal care homes, which are for seniors who do not require nursing home-level care, are licensed by the Department of Public Welfare, Adult Residential Licensing

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Stroudsburg

  • While Stroudsburg has an overall low cost of living, seniors can expect to spend about 10 percent more on groceries, 4 percent more on transportation expenses and 8 percent more on clothing, restaurants, entertainment and other miscellaneous items than they would in other U.S. cities. 

  • Stroudsburg seniors can expect hot summers, with July highs averaging in the mid-80s, and chilly, snowy winters with lows in the upper teens. 

  • Seniors and their families can rest easy knowing Stroudsburg has a low overall crime rate that falls 33 percent below the national average. It comes in below state and national averages in both violent and property crime. 

  • The Monroe County Transit Authority provides public bus service in Stroudsburg, offering nearly a dozen routes around the area. Seniors 65 and over can apply for a Senior Transit Pass, which allows them to ride any fixed route for free. Additionally, MCTA offers a shared ride program, allowing them to provide transportation for seniors who live more than a quarter-mile away from a fixed route or need to travel to an area that can’t be accessed by public transportation. 

  • The Stroudsburg area is home to world-class medical facilities, including St. Luke’s Monroe Campus, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 
  • Pennsylvania seniors pay no taxes on Social Security income, retirement accounts or pension income. These savings may leave more money in the budget for assisted living expenses.
