    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Tyrone

    Tyrone is home to less than 2,000 residents, about 16% of whom are age 65 and over. Among this small community's most popular points of interest is Reservoir Park, which has an amphitheater where visitors can see live entertainment throughout the summer. 

    In spite of the community's small size, Tyrone has three assisted living facilities for seniors to choose from, with one additional facility in the neighboring city of Altoona. In Pennsylvania, assisted living facilities are also referred to as assisted living residences and personal care homes. Assisted living residences are licensed through the Department of Aging, and personal care homes are licensed by the Department of Public Welfare.

    • Over the course of a year, temperatures in Tyrone range between 22 degrees and 82 degrees. The warm season lasts from late-May to mid-September, and the cold season lasts from the beginning of December to the beginning of March. Seniors may want to find an assisted living facility that provides individual climate control in private living quarters.
