    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Windber

    In the 19th century, Windber, Pennsylvania, located in Somerset County, welcomed many European immigrants, who came to find jobs in the coal industry. Today, the town has a population of 3,971 people, 22% of whom are aged 65 and over. To serve those seniors needed help with the tasks of daily living, there are two assisted living facilities in Windber and 14 more in nearby communities, such as Johnstown.

    In Windber and the rest of Pennsylvania, the Department of Aging, Office of Long-Term Living, Division of Licensing oversees assisted living facilities, or assisted living residences (ALRs), as they're known in the state.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Windber

    • Seniors looking to retire to a low-crime area may appreciate that Windber has a violent crime rate of 22.7, equal to the national average, and at 16, its property crime rate is less than half the U.S. average of 35.4.
    • In Windber, summers are moderate, with an average high of 79 degrees in July. However, winter lows average 16 in January, which may be tough on seniors with arthritis and other conditions sensitive to cold weather. In contrast, the national average temperature range is approximately 21-86 degrees. Windber receives approximately 85 inches of snow each winter, compared to the U.S. average of 28 inches.
    • According to the EPA, seniors in Windber enjoy better air and water quality than those living in similarly sized towns nationwide. Air and water quality here are 69 and 68, respectively, compared to national averages of 58 for air quality and 55 for water quality.
    • While the national and state average cost of living is 100, Windber's cost of living is 73.7, driven by housing costs at one-third of the national average. Seniors living in assisted living may indirectly benefit since housing costs impact facilities' operational costs and may impact monthly fees.
    • Windber seniors and those throughout Pennsylvania live in a relatively tax-friendly state. Seniors don't pay taxes on retirement income, including Social Security IRAs, and 401(k)s, which may leave a little more money for assisted living expenses.
