Assisted Living in Pittsburgh, PA

A city of around 300,000 people nestled along the western border of Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh was a steel town up until the early 21st century. Three distinct rivers run through the city — Allegheny, Monongahela and Ohio — which meet at the historic site of Fort Duquesne. Today, Pittsburgh is home to large skyscrapers, big company headquarters, three professional athletic teams and a population of around 44,000 seniors.

Older adults seeking a supportive, shared living environment in their retirement years can turn to assisted living communities. Pittsburgh seniors pay an average of $3,250 per month for this kind of care, according to data from the Genworth Financial 2021 Cost of Care Survey. That price is significantly lower than the Pennsylvania state average and the U.S. national average.

The following guide provides a helpful overview of assisted living topics in Pittsburgh. We’ll look at how Pittsburgh’s prices stack up against those of other Pennsylvania cities, and we’ll also examine some local assistance programs.
