What to Consider About Memory Care in Clearfield County

Clearfield County is in Pennsylvania's mountainous northwestern region with a population close to 80,000, including an estimated 16,000 who are aged 65 or older and in the most common age bracket for people living with dementia. Many of those seniors may require supervision and treatment at an Alzheimer's Special Care Unit (SCU), as Pennsylvania assisted living facilities that house and supervise memory care patients are known. The Office of Long-Term Living licenses and governs these SCUs, and Clearfield County has two of them within its borders.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in

  • During an average year, Clearfield County receives 42 inches of rain, and the U.S. average is 39. Snowfall is around 43 inches annually, compared to the US average of 26. Sunny days outnumber cloudy ones by 177 to 137. Summer temperatures climb to 80 degrees, and the winter lows are a bone-chilling 16. The U.S. has a 54 Sperling's Comfort Index rating, which is nine points higher than Clearfield County.
  • The violent crime rate in Clearfield County is 43.7 percent, which is one-third higher than the U.S. average of 31.1, and the property crime rate is almost equal to the national norm of 38.1 at 38.4. These moderate rates, and the regulations requiring safety enhancements like guards, security cameras, and self-locking doors, may help family members experience greater peace of mind.
  • The overall cost of living in Clearfield County is a remarkable 22 points lower than both the U.S. and Pennsylvania median figures of 100. Housing is very low at 38, compared to state and national averages of 89 and 100, respectively, while healthcare is six points below the U.S. norm. Groceries average 94 points, transportation is 91, and utility expenses are 99. Seniors living with dementia who are on a fixed income may be in a position to budget more money toward quality healthcare here.
  • Pennsylvania does not tax any retirement income, including Social Security payments, pensions, or retirement accounts of those residents who are aged 60 and older. A low state sales tax combined with the senior-friendly income tax exemptions may result in more money to spend on care in an SCU.
