What to Consider About Assisted Living in Phoenixville
Phoenixville has a long history that stretches back to 1732, when early settlers first called this beautiful region home. Today, the borough has a population of nearly 17,000, roughly 15 percent of which is over the age of 60. In spite of its relatively small senior population, the borough offers four assisted living facilities for seniors to choose from. Those who are willing to look a little farther out will find an additional 21 facilities in nearby cities.
Pennsylvania assisted living facilities are classified by the level of care they provide.
