    What to Consider About Memory Care in Lancaster

    5,672 seniors live in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, a town with a total population of 59,708. According to US News, Lancaster is the best place in the country to retire, and this town certainly has a lot to offer seniors with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia. There are three memory care facilities in Lancaster and nine nearby in Lititz, Maytown, Ephrata, York, Lebanon, Palmyra and Hershey.

    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, Office of Long Term Living, Division of Licensing. These facilities may provide nursing home care and other services to four or more adults. Personal care homes are licensed by the Department of Public Welfare, Adult Residential Licensing. Personal care homes also house four or more residents but cannot provide nursing home care. Both types may operate in one building under a dual license.

    • Lancaster has high crime rates, so it is a good idea to ask about security protocols at the memory care facilities you visit. Violent crime in this city is more than twice the national average, and property crime is around 60 percent higher than the national average.
    • The American Lung Association gives Lancaster County a failing grade on its annual particle pollution levels, so the air quality in this town may worsen the condition of seniors with cardiovascular conditions. Lancaster was rated at number eight out of 187 metropolitan areas for its annual particle pollution levels.
    • Lancaster has exceptionally low housing costs, sitting 32 points lower than the national average, and the overall cost of living is seven percent less than the national average. For seniors with a limited budget, these are important considerations.
