Assisted Living in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

In Philadelphia, nearly 14% of the city’s 1.58 million residents are aged 65 and older, creating a thriving community of active seniors. With a lower cost of living than many major cities, Philadelphia is a great place for seniors living on fixed incomes. Even better, Pennsylvania doesn’t tax retirement benefits, leaving older adults with more money in their pockets. In addition to the financial benefits of retiring in Philadelphia, seniors can enjoy the city’s many cultural attractions and outdoor venues. Convenient access to the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Franklin Institute are just a few of the highlights of living in the City of Brotherly Love. Philadelphia is also less than two hours from New York City, making it easy to enjoy a quick excursion to the Big Apple.

Assisted living in Philadelphia costs an average of $4,875 per month, but actual prices may be higher or lower depending on the location of the facility and the services and amenities provided to residents.

Philadelphia Assisted Living Financial Assistance

The Pennsylvania Medicaid program has an aging waiver that may provide coverage for some of the services provided by assisted living facilities. This is a home and community-based waiver that aims to help seniors remain in community settings, such as assisted living facilities, instead of moving into nursing homes. The HealthChoices program administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services may also help seniors pay for services in community facilities.

Learn more about these programs and the application process on our Assisted Living in Pennsylvania page.
