What to Consider About Assisted Living in Philadelphia
Philadelphia, Mississippi, is home to the sacred Choctaw Indian ceremonial ground at Nanih Waiya, built over 1700 years ago. Seniors can explore the historical sites and then relax at home in one of two Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs) within city limits — or choose from two in the surrounding area. ALFs in Mississippi are also referred to as Personal Care Homes and are defined as residences that provide medical services, supervision and assistance with daily living activities. These facilities are governed by the Mississippi State Department of Health.
