Senior Living at Country Meadows Retirement Communities
Contact us today!

One of New York and New Jersey’s best retirement communities is actually located in Pennsylvania.

    Our Lehigh Valley campuses in Allentown, Bethlehem and Forks of Easton provide Country Meadows residents the best of both worlds: a comfortable Pennsylvania lifestyle and close proximity to New Jersey or a short drive from New York.

    Our campuses in Allentown and Bethlehem lie in the heart of the Lehigh Valley, connecting you with rolling countryside, vibrant communities and quiet entertainment and recreation. Forks of Easton, our newest community in the Country Meadows family, is the closest community serving New Jersey and New York natives. Fewer than five miles from the New Jersey state line and only 1.5 hours from New York off I-78, our Easton campus delivers 21 acres of beautiful scenery.

    One of our Forks Township of Easton residents recently relocated from an independent living community in New Jersey. She appreciates Country Meadows’ commitment to her health and well-being at all levels—including her finances, active lifestyle and opportunity for exemplary care—while allowing her to remain close to family in northern New Jersey.

    “First of all, it’s far less expensive than New Jersey,” the resident commented. “Yet my family still only lives about 15 minutes from here. Everyone here is kind and thoughtful; they always help me. I was just not happy at my residence in New Jersey, and I’m very happy here.”

    Flat personal income tax

    Unlike most states, Pennsylvania does not have a graduated income tax. The state’s personal income tax is a flat 3.7% compared to surrounding states’ ranges of up to 5.75% in Maryland, 10.75% in New Jersey, 8.82% in New York and 6.5% in West Virginia. Even dividends and interests are taxed at a flat 3.7%.

    Tax-exempt retirement income

    Pennsylvania is one of the most generous states to retirees with its income-tax exclusions. To follow are the retirement income sources exempt from the state’s income tax—even if earned in another state:

    • Public or private pension
    • Social Security benefits
    • Distributions from 401(k) plans, IRAs, deferred-compensation plans or other retirement accounts
