    What to Consider About Assisted Living in West Chester

    West Chester, Pennsylvania has a population of just over 20,000 with almost 9 percent of residents considered seniors. To meet the needs of this group, there are eight assisted living facilities throughout West Chester, along with another 61 in neighboring communities including Coatesville and Media, as well as Wilmington, Delaware. In each of these facilities, seniors receive room and board in a comfortable residential setting, along with personal care services that include medication management and assistance with the activities of daily living, such as dressing, bathing and grooming. Assisted living facilities in West Chester, and in the rest of Pennsylvania, are licensed by the state's Department of Human Services.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in West Chester

    • The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) provides public transportation throughout West Chester, connecting the city to Philadelphia and King of Prussia. Discounted fares are available for seniors. SCCOOT and Krapf Transit also provide bus lines that travel through West Chester, and OurBus runs directly from West Chester to Manhattan.

    • The West Chester area is home to world-class medical facilities, including West Chester Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    • Even though it can get hot and humid in West Chester, the weather here is variable, and uncomfortable temperatures rarely last long. Thunderstorms hit during late summer, and heavy snowfall occurs every few years.

    • West Chester has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Chester County Department of Aging Services, an organization that provides Medicare counseling and protective services, as well as one senior center.

    • The cost of living in West Chester is 37.6 percent higher than the average national cost of living, making this area a good choice for seniors who have ample retirement savings or income.

    • West Chester is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning that its elected leadership “has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages,” according to AARP.

    Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in West Chester

    While the state of Pennsylvania doesn't offer any financial assistance to help low-income seniors pay for assisted living costs, including through Medicare, it does offer a couple of prescription assistance programs that provide varying degrees of financial benefits based on income. These programs, known as PACE and PACENET, shouldn't be confused with the Medicare PACE program, which is not available in Pennsylvania.

    Learn more about these programs, plus who’s eligible, on our Assisted Living in Pennsylvania page.
