What to Consider About Assisted Living in Wexford

Wexford's population hovers just under 14,000, and a little more than 14 percent of residents are seniors aged 65 years or older. To help accommodate this demographic, the city proper has just one assisted living facility, but the surrounding area, including Pittsburgh and Allison Park, have another 26.

Both assisted living residences and adult care homes fall under the classification of assisted living facility in Pennsylvania. The type of facility  depends on the specific level of care the staff is able to provide. Assisted living residences are controlled by the Department of Aging, while the Department of Public Welfare is responsible for adult care homes.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Wexford

  • Allegheny County 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.
  • The American Lung Association gave Allegheny County an F for both particle pollution and ozone levels. This means that the air in Wexford may be difficult for seniors with health issues.
  • The state of Pennsylvania offers seniors some savings when it comes to their annual tax bill. Most forms of retirement income are exempt, including pension income for those at least 60 years of age. Sales tax rates are also low compared to most places in the country, which offers additional savings.
  • Wexford has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Pittsburgh.
  • Living in Wexford will cost seniors about 30 percent more than the average U.S. city overall, but housing is the most expensive category which may not be a concern for those in assisted living. Healthcare is about 11 percent less than the national and state averages, which can help cut costs.
  • Both violent and property crime rates in Wexford come in well below the national averages so seniors feel safe. Violent crime is rated at 7.4 compared to the U.S. average of 22.7 (where lower numbers mean less crime), and property crime is rated at 12.5 compared to the national mean of 35.4.
