Page Reviewed / Updated – May 17, 2023
Hermitage is a Mercer County city on the Ohio border, about 30 minutes northeast of Youngstown. Seniors wanting to escape more densely packed cities might appreciate its suburban feel and strong sense of community. Families may also like the convenience of its location, as the journey times to Pittsburgh and Cleveland are only 70 and 85 minutes, respectively.
Seniors comprise almost 27% of the 16,230 residents who make up Hermitage’s population, which is about 10% more than the national average. Its appeal to seniors can be explained by the low cost of living, helping seniors’ dollars stretch further, and the low rates of violent crime, generating a greater sense of safety. Older residents may also appreciate the proximity of two hospitals — UPMC and Sharon Regional Medical Center — and the adequate number of Medicare-registered physicians.
According to the 2021 Genworth Cost of Care Survey, the median monthly fee for assisted living in Hermitage is $4,738. This is significantly more than Pennsylvania’s average of $4,100, although closer to the country’s $4,500.
