What to Consider About Memory Care in Easton
Around 3,250 seniors live at the junction of the Delaware and Lehigh Rivers in Easton, Pennsylvania, a city of 27,109 people. To support seniors with Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia, there are four memory care facilities in the city itself, as well as six others nearby in Hellertown, Bethlehem, Whitehall, Center Valley and Allentown.
Pennsylvania offers two types of memory care facilities: assisted living residences and personal care homes. Both types may operate in one building under a dual license. Assisted living residences are licensed by the Department of Aging, Office of Long Term Living. 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.
- In Pennsylvania, pension income for seniors 60 years of age or older is exempt from taxes, as is income from Social Security, 401(k) accounts, IRAs, or other retirement accounts. This may help loved ones set aside additional money for memory care.
- Easton is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as St. Luke’s Hospital, Anderson Campus, as well as Easton Hospital in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
