    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Williamsport

    The city of Williamsport, which is dubbed "The Birthplace of Little League Baseball," is home to several parks, a community swimming pool and a senior center. It has over 28,000 residents and a senior community that makes up about 13% of the population. Seniors thinking about assisted living have four facilities in Williamsport to choose from, and there are four more in the nearby cities of South Williamsport and Montoursville.

    In Williamsport and throughout Pennsylvania, these facilities are divided into two categories, including personal care homes, which are governed by the Department of Public Welfare, and assisted living residences, which are governed by the Department of Aging

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Williamsport

    • The overall crime rate in Williamsport is a little higher than the national average. On a 100-point scale, the city's violent crime rate is about two points higher than the national average at 25, and the property crime rate is about 11 points higher than the national average at 46.8. Seniors seeking local assisted living services may want to find out how the facilities they tour keep residents safe. 
    • Williamsport's air quality is decent with relatively low ozone pollution levels. Seniors, particularly those with cardiovascular or respiratory conditions, may benefit from the city's clean air. 
    • Williamsport is an affordable place to live, which may result in more affordable assisted living expenses. Its overall cost of living is about 17% lower than the state and national average, mainly because of the city's low housing costs.   
    • Pennsylvania's sales tax rate is among the 20 lowest in the country, though its property tax rate is slightly higher than average. Social Security income and withdrawals from retirement savings accounts are fully exempt from state income tax, and pension income is exempt for taxpayers aged 60 and over. This may leave more money in the budget for assisted living for Williamsport seniors.
    • The Williamsport area is home to world-class medical facilities, including UPMC Susquehanna Williamsport Regional Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.  
    • River Valley Transit provides public transportation services in Williamsport. The service operates over a dozen routes throughout the region, as well as a trolley during the summer months. Seniors aged 65 and over ride for free.
