What to Consider About Assisted Living in Carmel

Carmel is a small suburban city that's located on the outskirts of Indianapolis. The city is home to the largest farmer's market in the state and attracts a high number of cyclists and tourists each year as it hosts the Grand Fondo World Tour, an annual bike race. Carmel is home to a little more than 90,000 residents, 12.9 percent of whom are seniors aged 65 and older. 

There are 34 assisted living facilities in the Carmel area, which provide basic assistance with the activities of daily living and residential support to seniors who are no longer able to live independently. These facilities are regulated by the Family and Social Services Agency - Division of Aging.

Throughout the state of Indiana, assisted living facilities are officially known as Residential Care Facilities. Any facility that provides more intensive services such as medication administration or select nursing care must be licensed to do so by the Indiana Department of Health.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Carmel

  • Carmel has a low crime rate. The property crime rate in the city is 66 percent lower than the state average and 66 percent lower than the national average, and the violent crime rate is 93 percent lower than both state and national averages. 
  • While the city enjoys moderate summers with July highs in the mid-80s, winters in Carmel can be harsh with average low temperatures in January of only 19 degrees Fahrenheit and an average snowfall of 26 inches annually.
  •  Although the air quality in Carmel has been assigned a passing grade by the American Lung Association, the area is known to have moderate levels of ozone pollution, which may cause some adverse effects for seniors, particularly those with cardiovascular or respiratory conditions. 
  • The Carmel area is home to world-class medical facilities, including St. Vincent Carmel Hospital, in case of medical emergencies or illness. 
  • While the overall cost of living in Carmel is 23 percent higher than the national average, healthcare costs are 15 percent less expensive than in the average U.S. city, which may result in significant savings for many seniors.
  • There is no public-transportation option in Carmel, which means that seniors will have to rely on shuttle services provided by their assisted living facility or family and friends to help them travel to appointments.
