    What to Consider About Memory Care in Harrisburg

    Harrisburg is the capital city of Pennsylvania, a state where the Alzheimer's Association estimates that roughly 280,000 people are currently living with Alzheimer's disease. The city has a population of almost 50,000 people, about 10 percent of whom are over the age of 65. Harrisburg offers an array of resources for families and seniors affected by Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia, including two memory care facilities in the city and 10 more outside the city limits.

    Memory care facilities, which may also be called special care units, or SCUs, in Pennsylvania, may be located in either personal care homes or assisted living residences.

    • Pennsylvania seniors find the state to be moderately tax-friendly, which may enable them to put more money toward memory care. Income from Social Security is not subject to income tax, and all other forms of retirement income are tax-exempt for seniors who are over the age of 60. 
    • The Harrisburg area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as UPMC Pinnacle Harrisburg, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • The violent crime rate in Harrisburg is high compared to regional, state and national averages, which may be a concern for families who are helping their loved ones relocate to this city for memory care. On a scale of one to 100, with 100 representing high crime, the violent crime rate is 91.7, compared to the state average of 27.0 and the national average of 31.1. Property crime is high as well, rating 58.1. This is compared to the state average of 23.7 and the national average of 38.1. Families may wish to speak to their loved one's memory care community to learn how they keep residents safe and secure. 
      • Harrisburg's seasonal temperatures are on par with the nationwide averages, with highs in the mid-80s in the summers, lows near 22 in the winter and about 27 inches of annual snowfall. The city's climate may be ideal for seniors who enjoy experiencing all four seasons.
