    What to Consider About Memory Care in Lehigh County

    Lehigh County's population is 366,494 people, including more than 62,000 residents who are age 65 and older. Using figures from statewide Medicare enrollment, an estimated 14.1 percent of Pennsylvanians live with Alzheimer's disease, and they may benefit from treatment at an Alzheimer's Special Care Unit (SCU), as they're called in Pennsylvania and the rest of Lehigh County.

    The Office of Long-Term Living SCUs licenses and regulates the SCUs. There are 11 SCUs in the county of Lehigh with six in the city of Allentown and the other five in surrounding communities.

    • Residents in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania who are age 60 and above receive tax-free retirement income, including pensions, retirement accounts, and Social Security benefits. The low sales tax may also result in extra money for memory care for seniors living in Lehigh County.
