Uniontown is a rural city established when the Founding Fathers signed the Declaration of Independence. Its historical links are strong — the National Road runs through it, and the opening battle of the French and Indian War in 1754 at Fort Necessity is nearby. Seniors searching for somewhere with a laid-back feel that’s also steeped in history and home to excellent medical facilities, such as the WVU Uniontown Hospital, may find what they’re looking for here.
Adults aged 65 and over make up 22.4% of Uniontown’s residents, far more than the 16.5% national average and suggestive of the city’s appeal to older citizens. It may be a combination of the healthy environment, easy access to numerous amenities and an average cost of living 6% below the country’s norm.
Uniontown’s typical assisted living fee is $5,700 per month. This is approximately 28% more than Pennsylvania’s average and 21% more than the state’s. However, as Uniontown’s costs merge with an out-of-state city, its median fee may be more in line with nearby Pennsylvania cities, such as Pittsburgh ($3,250) and Johnstown ($2,725).
Note: Information for Uniontown was not available, so data from the nearest city, Morgantown, WV, was used.

The staff takes care of housekeeping and home maintenance and also offers laundry and linen services, so seniors can devote more of their time to the frequent planned social events, which include on-site church services.
