    What to Consider About Memory Care in Mechanicsburg

    Located within the greater Harrisburg metro area, Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, has a population of 9,016, with 15.8 percent of residents aged 65 years and older. Some of these people are part of the 280,000 seniors in the state who are currently living with Alzheimer's disease and related forms of dementia.

    The borough has three memory care facilities to serve this population and 11 more in nearby neighborhoods such as Dillsburg and Harrisburg. These facilities are known as Special Care Units, or SCUs, and are typically housed within existing assisted living residences or personal care homes. 

    • The cost of living is 97.9 in Mechanicsburg, compared to a national average of 100. However, healthcare is 13 percent higher than the national average and 6 percent higher than the state average, which might be a point of consideration for families with loved ones in memory care here.
    • Mechanicsburg has a violent crime rate of 22.2, significantly lower than the U.S. average of 31.1, and a property crime rate of 37, which is lower than the U.S. average of 38.1. Despite the moderate crime stats, it's a good idea to ask about which specific security measures are in place at each facility toured. Cameras, alarms and other devices should be installed and monitored. 
    • Mechanicsburg has 195 sunny days per year, which is just under the national average. It gets 42 inches of rain and 26 inches of snow annually, which is also on par with the regional and national figures. July highs average 85 degrees Fahrenheit, and January lows average 22 degrees, making certain times of year challenging for seniors who are sensitive to extreme hot or cold weather.
    • Pennsylvania is tax-friendly toward retirees, with no tax on Social Security income or withdrawals from retirement accounts. Senior income and public or private pension income is also tax-exempt, which may leave some room in the budget for personal items and other daily expenses.
