    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Rome

    Nestled against the foot of the scenic Appalachian Mountains to the north, Rome is the largest city in Floyd County. Home to nearly 37,000 people, over 14% of Rome's citizens are seniors aged 65 and over. No less than seven assisted living facilities operate within the city limits of Rome, while several other communities dot the hill country surrounding the town.

    Seniors who opt to live in one of Rome's assisted living communities get room and board, help with daily activities such as dressing and laundry and often complimentary transportation to and from their doctors' offices. In Rome, these facilities, like all residential senior care communities in Georgia, are licensed and regulated through the Department of Community Health.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Rome

    • The climate in Rome is variable and highly seasonal. Summers average daily high temperatures of 90 degrees in Rome, while overnight lows dip to 31 during the mild winters. Rome gets around 54 inches of rain in a typical year, mostly in summer, while a dusting of snow falls every couple of years here.
    • The cost of living in Rome is low by national standards, with most combined personal expenses running to just 87% of the national average. Despite the lower than average cost of living, seniors in Rome do pay up to 12% more for healthcare in this part of Georgia.
    • Crime rates in Rome are high in comparison with national rates. Across all crime categories, Rome posts numbers roughly 15% higher than the national average. This rate has been in decline since 2010, and seniors in Rome live with a violent crime rate that's already down to the average for the rest of the country.
    • The Rome Transit Department operates the Main Line and Tripper Transit services, which provide public transportation for many of Rome's seniors. Aging citizens ride scheduled routes on the Main Line at a discount with valid transit ID cards.
    • The Rome area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Floyd Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Rome has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Area Agency On Aging Of Northwest Georgia, an organization that offers Rome seniors legal, health and educational support, care referrals and caregiver resources, as well as more than four senior centers.
