Murrysville is a relatively peaceful home-rule municipality in Westmoreland County that’s within 25 minutes of downtown Pittsburgh. The picturesque area is home to over 1,000 acres of parkland and numerous quality restaurants and boutique stores, creating an impression of stepping back in time.
Its appeal to seniors was revealed in the 2020 Census, which found 27.2% of its 21,000 residents are aged 65 and older. The below-average costs for health care and transportation are likely factors. Other causes may be the above-average quality of the air and water and the exceptionally low instances of property and violent crime. Combined, the data suggests Murrysville is a healthy and safe municipality for seniors. Proximity to excellent health care is also a boon, as the journey times to UPMC East and Forbes Hospital are only six and nine minutes, respectively.
According to the 2021 Genworth Cost of Care Survey, the median monthly fee for assisted living in Murrysville is $3,250. This compares very well with Pennsylvania’s average of $4,100 and the country’s $4,500.
Note: Data for Murrysville was unavailable, so data for the nearest city, Pittsburgh, was used instead.
