Assisted Living in Hanover, Pennsylvania

Hanover is a tight-knit community of 15,700 people located in south-central Pennsylvania about 20 miles from York and 50 miles from Baltimore. It’s also a popular retirement destination where adults aged 65 and older represent one in five residents. Local seniors benefit from below-average crime rates and a competitive cost of living that’s almost 8% lower than the national average. Because the climate is more pleasant than other parts of the state, residents have more time to visit the farmers market, explore historic sites near Gettysburg or enjoy recreational opportunities at Codorus State Park, home to Lake Marburg.

The area’s affordability also moderates the cost of long-term care. Seniors in Hanover pay $3,443 per month for assisted living, according to Genworth Financial’s 2020 Cost of Care Survey, which is 13% lower than the state median and 20% lower than that nationwide average. Additionally, 19 assisted living facilities are located in the surrounding area, which gives seniors a range of options depending on their budget and personal preferences.
