    What to Consider About Memory Care in Butler County

    Butler County is located near Pennsylvania's western border and has a population of 187,108, 18.2 percent of whom are 65 or older, the prime age bracket for dementia. Many of those people could benefit from treatment at an Alzheimer's Special Care Unit (SCU), as assisted living facilities that treat patients with cognitive ailments are known in Pennsylvania. The Office of Long-Term Living licenses and oversees these SCUs, of which Butler County has two with one each in the cities of Saxonburg and Butler.

    • The overall cost of living in Butler County is only five points higher than the U.S. median of 100. Groceries and housing are 5 points below and above the national average, respectively, while healthcare is very low at 88. Families on a fixed income may notice extra funds after the month's bills are paid, which can be put toward a loved one's care in an SCU.
    • The violent crime rate in Butler County is 30 percent less than the U.S. average of 31.1 at 25.4, and the property crime rate is much lower than the national norm of 38.1 at 24.9. The low crime rates, along with the stringent regulations regarding safety precautions like security cameras and self-locking doors, may allow families to rest easy knowing that their seniors are being taken care of properly.
    • The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania does not tax the retirement income, including pensions, retirement accounts, and Social Security benefits, of those who are aged 60 and above. The state sales tax is also low, and the two tax breaks may result in extra money for memory care.
    • Butler County is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, such as Butler Memorial Hospital and ACMH Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
