    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Charlestown

    The small city of Charleston is situated in the eastern region of Clark County in southeastern Indiana. The city is home to Charlestown State Park, a sprawling 5,100-acre park where seniors who enjoy fishing can fish for a discounted rate.

    To support its senior community, which makes up nearly 12 percent of the city's 8,200-person population, Charlestown has one assisted living facility. Seniors who are willing to venture out from the city proper will find an additional 10 facilities nearby. The official licensure term for these facilities is Residential Care Facilities, and they offer at least one health-related service and two or more scheduled supportive services to at least five individuals. In Charlestown, as in all of Indiana, assisted living facilities are licensed and monitored by the Family and Social Services Agency Division of Aging.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Charlestown

    • Charlestown experiences four distinct seasons, with year-round temperatures varying between 27 degrees and 87 degrees Fahrenheit. While seniors may appreciate the city's minimal snowfall, the high levels of humidity in the summer may be a problem for those with cardiovascular or respiratory illnesses. 

    • The American Lung Association gave Clark County an ozone grade of F and a short-term particle pollution grade of B. This may be a concern for seniors with asthma, COPD, lung cancer and cardiovascular disease. 

    • Charlestown is an affordable place to live, with an overall cost of living that is nearly 10 percent below the national average. This relatively low cost of living is reflected in the city's grocery and health care prices, though seniors may find that transportation costs are about 13 percent higher here than they are in other U.S. cities. 

    • Indiana seniors pay state income tax on any income they draw from retirement accounts or pensions, but Social Security benefits are tax-exempt. This may impact how much money a senior can put towards their assisted living expenses.

    • Charlestown offers a variety of arts and culture venues, including the Rose Island Playhouse & Company, Inc., which provides live theatrical performances, as well as educational and volunteer opportunities for local residents. Seniors are eligible to receive a discount on membership

    • The Charlestown area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Charlestown Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
