The small city of Batesville, located in south-eastern Indiana, was founded in 1952 and was named after Joshua Bates, the first person to build a home on the very first lot. This city, rich in scenic beauty and with a commitment to providing the best quality of life to its residents, is home to 1,039 seniors who make up 16% of Batesville’s total population of 6,520. Some area seniors may need extra help with certain aspects of daily living, and there are two assisted living facilities located within the city to assist them.
In Indiana, including Batesville, assisted living facilities are called residential care facilities and are registered with the Family and Social Services Agency Division of Aging. If they administer medications, they must also be licensed by the Indiana State Department of Health.
