Richlandtown, Pennsylvania

Independent Living

For many seniors, the financial burden of home ownership and the upkeep of daily tasks and chores might deter them from enjoying an otherwise independent lifestyle. Independent Living Communities provide a solid alternative to this situation. Frequent needs such as housekeeping and the scheduling of social activities are accounted for, allowing residents more free time to live their lives as they desire. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar ages and interests. Within the individual units, residents have access to a private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a partner if they choose. While policies vary between communities, many residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with private care providers if desired. There are a number of benefits and costs to balance when determining an independent living community. It is important to learn if these services are included in the care plan: Waiting list deposit, internet access, private phone, parking, transportation, field trips, initial assessment fee, and utilities. The amenities that pertain to independent living include concierge services, private rental hall, community activities, fitness center & swimming pool, beauty salon & barber shop, security guards, game/TV room, and restaurant-style dining hall.

Cost of Living

Senior living community price is influenced by the destination in which it is located. The rent burden for Richlandtown is about 21.7% of the average monthly income. The median home value in Richlandtown is around $217,471 and the median rent is $1,410 a month.
