    What to Consider About Memory Care in State College

    State College, Pennsylvania, is a college town nestled in the heart of Centre County, with a population of about 42,000 people, 2000 of whom are 65 and older. Approximately 11 percent of these seniors may have Alzheimer's, Huntington's disease or another form of dementia. There are two memory care facilities in State College to provide for the specialized needs of these residents.

    In State College and the rest of the Commonwealth, assisted living facilities are called Assisted Living Residences or Personal Care Homes and are licensed by the Department of Public Welfare, Adult Residential Licensing.

    • State College has a high overall cost of living of 113, compared to a national average of 100. High housing costs are offset by low transportation, utilities and grocery costs. Seniors living in memory care may not be impacted by the higher housing costs, although it may indirectly impact the facility's operating cost.
    • Violent crime rates in State College are 32.2, which is on par with the U.S. average of 31.1. However, the property crime of 23.8 is much lower than the national average of 38.1. Despite the lower crime stats, families of memory care residents should ensure that precautions are taken to keep their loved ones from wandering.
    • State College receives about 46 inches of snow and 40 inches of rain annually, compared to the national averages of 36 and 39 inches, respectively. Summer highs in July hit 82 degrees, while winter lows are a bone-chilling 18 degrees in January. Families should ask the staff at memory care facilities what precautions are taken to keep residents comfortable during extreme temperatures.
    • State College has an air quality score of 45, somewhat worse than the national average of 58. This is based on EPA measurements of hazardous air pollutants from the EPA. This may mean that seniors with respiratory issues, such as asthma, or chronic diseases, such as COPD, may have a harder time breathing here than in similarly sized cities in the U.S.
