What to Consider About Assisted Living in Norristown

Senior citizens of Norristown can explore its American history and choose from 57 Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs) located nearby. ALF regulations in Pennsylvania are governed by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services to ensure that dignified, professional standards are being met.

Property crime is rated at 42.9, which is only a little higher than the national average of 38.1.

  • Seniors in Norristown have access to the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA). They can use SEPTA to shop, visit local attractions and get to doctor's appointments. If they are over 65 years old, they ride for free.
