Carlisle is a farm borough in central Pennsylvania, located about halfway between Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. Home to just over 20,000 people, 17% of Carlisle’s residents are seniors aged 65 and over. The land around the town of Carlisle is mostly made up of rolling farm country, with some small towns and villages set against the forests, fields and cultivated golf courses and bike trails of southern Pennsylvania.

Seniors have found a lot to like about living in Carlisle. Pennsylvania’s taxes are exceptionally friendly toward seniors, offering a 100% tax exemption on all Social Security income, as well as various kinds of retirement income including 401(k)s and IRAs. Seniors aged 60 and over can even get an exemption on private pension incomes.

Carlisle has very low crime rates. While property crime rates in the city area are close to the national average, violent crime rates are around half of the national numbers. Seniors can enjoy the town’s safe, family-friendly environment outdoors for most of the year, since this part of the state gets warm, wet summers and cool winters with some snow. Seniors of all ability levels can take in the city’s many nature trails, bike and jogging paths and community events held downtown every holiday season.

According to the 2021 Genworth Cost of Care Survey, assisted living in Carlisle costs seniors an average of $4,828 a month. This is $328 a month higher than the $4,500 average national cost for similar senior care, and $728 a month higher than the $4,100 average for Pennsylvania state. These costs are likely to vary depending on the details of the facility itself, the services provided and the location of the assisted living community.
