This could be one of the reasons behind the broad elder population in this area, with 28.3% of residents being over 65 years old, some of whom could benefit from an assisted living facility.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Wellsboro

    • The Wellsboro area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Sailors Memorial Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 
    • Property Crime is very low in Wellsboro at 19.9, nearly half the rate of the national average of 35.4. Violent crime is even lower at 13.3, compared to the national average of 22.7, making it a very safe place for seniors who enjoy walking and staying fit.
    • Wellsboro is less expensive than many areas of the nation with a cost of living score of 83.3, compared to the national average of 100, which may make this city more appealing for seniors on a fixed-income.
    • Cold, long winters with lows of 14 degrees and an average of 51 inches of annual snowfall make Wellsboro a great location for snow-loving seniors. Seniors who mind the cold may want to seek out a facility that offers individual climate controls so they can stay warm, despite the weather conditions outside.
    • Air and water quality are good in Wellsboro, which may be of interest to health-conscious seniors. The city ranks 75 for air quality and 82 for water quality, both considerably higher than the U.S. averages of 58 and 55, respectively.
    • Seniors who don't drive can easily get around using the BeST Transit system, which also offers dial-a-ride services for elders and medical assistance transportation.
