Learn More About Care Homes in Mechanicsburg, PA

Welcome to Mechanicsburg! This historic borough in Cumberland County is named for a settlement of mechanics who built and repaired wagons in the early 19th century.

In Mechanicsburg, residential care homes — sometimes called care homes, board and care homes, group homes, or personal care homes — are often houses in residential neighborhoods that are adapted, equipped, and staffed to care for a small number of residents, usually 10 or less. Similar to assisted living but in a smaller, more residential setting, these homes provide supervision, organized events, and assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). This means care homes can help with everyday routines but typically do not provide 24-hour skilled nursing assistance.


Cost of Care Homes in Mechanicsburg, PA

The median monthly cost of a room in a care home is about $2,000 in the state of Pennsylvania. However, the cost of living in a care home depends largely on location. Since the homes are private residences, costs are tied to real estate value and therefore may vary greatly.

A town rich with local history and many historic sites to show for it, Mechanicsburg was originally founded in the 19th century by settlers who built and repaired covered wagons. This legacy is celebrated every New Year’s Eve when Mechanicsburg drops a wrench to remember all of the mechanics who have come before. The town played a significant role in the Civil War as the site of the northernmost battles of the war. Popular historic sites in Mechanicsburg include the Station Masters House, built in 1863, and the Frankenberger Tavern, which was founded in 1901 and is allegedly haunted.

Mechanicsburg is also famous for its Jubilee Day street fair, which runs for an entire day during the second week of June. Held on Market Street, which is home to a number of boutique shops and restaurants, it’s the region’s longest street fair and features food, games, crafts, and rides.

Transportation

Capital Area Transit (CAT) operates bus services throughout Cumberland County that connect Mechanicsburg to downtown Harrisburg, the capital of Pennsylvania.
