What to Consider About Assisted Living in Zelienople

All assisted living facilities in Zelienople are licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services, Office of Long-Term Living, Bureau of Human Services Licensing. This agency sets minimum standards for the scope of services facilities must provide, along with staffing, meal services and residents’ rights. It enforces compliance through routine inspections and by investigating complaints regarding care and conditions.    

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Zelienople

 

  • Assisted living residents in Zelienople pay very little, if anything, in state income taxes, which may help them afford monthly care expenses. The state exempts all income from Social Security and disbursements from retirement savings accounts, and pension income is tax-exempt for filers aged 60 and over.
  • Butler County, where Zelienople is located, operates a shared ride system for seniors who no longer drive. This service is called Butler Area Rural Transit, and it operates on weekdays from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m., although hours may vary by location. Trips must be scheduled with at least 48 hours of notice and up to 2 weeks in advance by calling the office at (724) 282-6060. These services can help supplement transportation services available through assisted living facilities.
  • The overall cost of living in Zelienople is consistent with the national average but about five percentage points higher than what’s typical for Pennsylvania, which may be a concern for those retiring to this city from other communities across the state. Housing costs are quite a bit higher here than in other Pennsylvania cities, which may make assisted living a financially viable alternative to owning a home for those with budgetary considerations.
  • Zelienople residents see minimal crime, which may provide peace of mind to seniors considering this city for assisted living. On a 100-point index, the city scores 8.6 for violent crime versus 22.7 nationally, indicating that the rate of occurrences is consistently lower than national norms. Property crime is a little more common, earning the city a score of 21.6, but this is still well below the nation’s average score of 35.4.
  • Due to its small size, Zelienople doesn’t have any hospitals within its limits. However, numerous major medical facilities are nearby, including Heritage Valley Beaver and UPMC Passavant – Cranberry, both of which are within a 10-mile radius. There are only 132 physicians per capita in this region compared to the national norm of 210, but to prevent barriers to medical care, many assisted living facilities have on-staff nurses and on-call physicians.
