What to Consider About Assisted Living in Rome

There are 11 assisted living facilities in the Rome area. Six of these lie within the city itself with another five in close proximity. These are all governed by the Georgia Department of Community Health. For a community to remain in good standing under the department's guidelines it must make provisions for or offer assistance with essential daily living activities (EDLAs). EDLAs are defined by the state as (but not limited to) eating, bathing, toileting, grooming and dressing. These facilities must provide care for 25 or more patients and have a certified medication aide to oversee the dispensing of medications. The costs of assisted living facilities in Rome are $4,225, above the national average of $3,750.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Rome

  • The cost of living in Rome is 13.6 percent below the national average, likely due to the low housing costs that the area enjoys. The costs of the basic necessities for the majority of assisted living facility residents would not be affected, and there would be little savings realized. 
  • Rome is unusual for a small southern town of only 36,000 residents because it has a city managed bus line. The buses operate on set routes and seniors receive a 50 percent discount on fares. However, the buses only operate from 5:40 am to 6:30 pm, Monday through Friday. Curb-to-curb service is available for the handicapped and elderly but a special application must be submitted to the transit authority for approval. The city also has two taxis that operate on an on-call basis.
  • Rome has a higher crime rate than 92 percent of the United States with one in every 168 residents falling victim annually. Violent crimes are relatively rare in the city but an extremely high property crime rate makes it a town where you wouldn't want to leave doors unlocked or walk the streets alone at night.
  • With summer highs averaging just below 90 degrees and winter lows just a bit below freezing, Rome has a very comfortable climate the majority of the year. For those seniors who are sensitive to moist weather, it is not ideal as the city is prone to being humid and experiencing severe thunderstorms.
  • Rome hosts several cultural events throughout the year such as the Annual Shakespeare Festival but the availability of cultural activities in the city is limited.
  • The Rome area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Floyd Medical Center and Kindred Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
