With a low cost of living and a vibrant arts, culture and culinary scene, Williamsport is an appealing retirement destination for budget-conscious seniors who value small-town life, abundant natural beauty and a strong community spirit. Situated on the banks of the Susquehanna River, the region has a rich agricultural heritage that provides plenty of fresh, tasty fare for the table and artisan arts and crafts. 

Older adults aged 65 and over make up approximately 12.4% of Williamsport’s overall population of slightly less than 28,000 citizens. Williamsport residents can access health care at UPMC Williamsport.

According to Genworth’s 2021 Cost of Care Survey, residents of assisted living facilities in Williamsport pay a monthly average of $3,366 for care. This is substantially less than the Pennsylvania median of $4,100 and even lower than the national monthly median of $4,500. Those in Williamsport pay over $2,000 per month less for assisted living than residents of Philadelphia, but assisted living in Pittsburgh is around $100 less per month than the Williamsport average.
