    What to Consider About Memory Care in Allentown

    Allentown, Pennsylvania is the third-most populous city in the state, and 11.8 percent of its 121,283 population are seniors. Allentown senior residents with Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia have access to six memory care centers in the city itself as well as 19 additional facilities in neighboring Hellertown and other communities. Pennsylvania offers two types of memory care facilities, assisted living residences and personal care homes. Assisted living residences are licensed by the Department of Aging and these facilities may provide nursing home care and other services to four or more adults. Personal care homes, licensed by the Department of Public Welfare, can also house four or more residents but cannot provide nursing home care. An assisted living residence and a personal care home may operate in one building under a dual license.

    • In Allentown, as in the rest of Pennsylvania, pension income and income from Social Security and other retirement accounts are tax-exempt for seniors 60 years of age or older. In addition, Allentown’s cost of housing is 34 percent lower than the national average. Thanks to its reasonable cost of living, this city is an attractive option for seniors with a limited budget.
    • The weather in this city is overcast and wet year-round. Allentown sees 46 inches of rain and 32 inches of snow per year, with hot, muggy summers and bitingly cold winters that bring flooding, ice, and freezing rain. It is a good idea to ask your chosen memory care facility how they keep residents safe from weather-related hazards.   
    • Compared to the averages for the whole Allentown-Bethlehem-Easton Metro area, Allentown’s property and violent crime rates are about 45 percent higher. Allentown also has a slightly higher property crime rate than nearby Philadelphia despite having one-seventh the population.
