    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Ambridge

    Founded in 1905 by the American Bridge Company, the city of Ambridge lies 16 miles northwest of Pittsburgh along the Ohio River and is home to 6,649 people, 14.4% of whom are aged 65 and over. Some seniors in this age group may require assistance with the tasks of daily living, and there are two assisted living facilities within the town limits to accommodate them. Mckees Rocks, Moon Township and other nearby communities offer 14 other facilities to choose from.

    In Pennsylvania, including Ambridge, assisted living residences (ALRs), as assisted living facilities are known, are licensed and regulated by the Department of Aging, Office of Long-Term Living, Division of Licensing.

    • Violent crime is 69.2 in Ambridge and property crime is 54.1. Both these stats are much higher the national averages of 22.7 and 35.4, respectively. Seniors going into town may wish to safeguard their belongings and stay alert.
