What to Consider About Assisted Living in Troy
Troy used to be a pioneer settlement in British West Florida, but now it's the quaint Colonial seat of Pike County, Alabama. Only 18,000 people live in Troy, around 11% of whom are seniors aged 65 and over. Two assisted living facilities operate within the city limits, where seniors who need help to live independently can find safe and comfortable accommodations. These facilities in Troy, like all residential care communities in the state, are licensed and regulated by the Alabama Department of Public Health, Board of Public Health.
Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Troy

Crime rates in Troy are very high in almost all categories. Across all types of reported crimes combined, Troy's crime rate is almost 70% higher than the average rate for an American city of its size. This is mainly the result of a very high property crime rate, though seniors need to be aware of a somewhat higher than average violent crime rate in Troy.

Public transportation in Troy is on-demand only, with discounts for senior riders and rides over 30 miles available only with advance notice.
