    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Avilla

    The small town of Avilla, located in the northeastern region of Indiana, was settled around 1840 and developed largely due to the construction of the Grand Rapids and Indiana Railway and the Baltimore, Pittsburgh and Chicago Railway. This town has a population of just over 2,000 people and a senior community that accounts for nearly one in five residents.

    The Avilla region has four assisted living facilities, including two in town and two in nearby Kendallville. These facilities may also be referred to as residential care facilities, and they are licensed by the Family and Social Services Agency Division of Aging

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Avilla

    • Avilla's overall cost of living is about 5% below the statewide median and 18% below the national median, which may make it an appealing option for seniors who have tight assisted living budgets. 
    • On a 100-point scale, with a lower score representing less crime, property crime in Avilla is rated 31.5, several points lower than the national average of 35.4, and the violent crime rate is 15.5, versus the national average of 22.7. The town's relatively low crime rate may make it an attractive option for active seniors. 
    • Over the course of a year, temperatures in Avilla range between 17 degrees and 83 degrees, and the region gets 28 inches of snow annually, which is roughly on par with the national average. To ensure their comfort throughout the year, seniors may want to seek out an assisted living facility that has individual climate control.  
    • Anvilla seniors pay state income tax on money from retirement savings accounts and government and private pensions, but Social Security benefits are not taxed at the state level. This may affect how much money may be put toward assisted living services.
    • Anvilla has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Kendallville.
    • The Fort Wayne-Huntington-Auburn area, where Avilla is located, is rated 99 out of 228 metropolitan areas for high ozone days and 64 out of 217 metropolitan areas for 24-hour particle pollution by the American Lung Association. This indicates moderate levels of pollution, which may be a consideration for some seniors with conditions like COPD or asthma.
