For seniors who need an assisted living facility, there are three in Altoona and about 20 others in surrounding areas. 

    Assisted living communities in Altoona, as in the rest of the state, are licensed and inspected by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services Bureau of Assisted Living Division of Quality Assurance.
