York is a historically significant city that served as one of the nation’s earliest capitals. About 10.3% of its almost 45,000 residents are aged 65 and older. York is known nationally for its industrial heritage but locally for its wealth of casual and upscale restaurants, tea and coffee houses and annual events, such as the York State Fair, which dates back to 1765. There is also a good choice of care services for seniors residing at home who would benefit from assisted living.
Assisted living can deliver the advantages of home care, such as housekeeping, meal preparation and assistance with daily living tasks, and round-the-clock support. Additionally, facilities have a manager responsible for social events, such as parties and group trips. Many also have beauty salons and barbers, so residents don’t need to travel for hair treatments. The median fee for assisted living in York is $5,510 per month, which is approximately 25.6% more than Pennsylvania’s average fee.
