    What to Consider About Memory Care in York

    York, Pennsylvania, has a population of 44,132 people. Although only a little over 9.1 percent of York residents are seniors, there are four memory care facilities in York and one in neighboring Maytown to serve individuals with Alzheimer’s and various types of dementia. 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 and may provide nursing home care and other services to four or more adults. Personal care homes, licensed by the Department of Public Welfare, can also house four or more residents but cannot provide nursing home care. An assisted living residence and a personal care home may operate in one building with a dual license.

    • York is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as the York Neurology Specialists at UPMC Pinnacle Memorial Hospital, as well as Wellspan York Hospital in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • In Pennsylvania, seniors 60 years of age or older do not have to pay taxes on their pensions, Social Security incomes or income from other retirement accounts. In addition, the overall cost of living in York is reasonable. Housing is the biggest contributor, being 70 percent lower than the national average. As such, this city is an attractive option for seniors with a limited budget.
    • This city is overcast and rainy for most of the year, but it sees some extreme weather during the summer and winter. York averages 42 inches of rain and 24 inches of snow per year, and January sees an average low of 22 degrees Fahrenheit, while the average July high is 85 degrees. It is a good idea to ensure that your chosen memory care facility has a plan to prevent residents from wandering outside in harsh weather. 
    • Despite the fact that the Harrisburg-York-Lebanon area has the 15th highest particle pollution level out of 187 US metropolitan areas, the American Lung Association gives York County a passing grade for its annual particle pollution levels. This suggests that the air quality is not likely to worsen the conditions of seniors with respiratory conditions.
