What to Consider About Assisted Living in Crawfordsville

Crawfordsville, Indiana, only has three assisted living communities to serve the needs of its senior community, which makes up 17.8 percent of the city's 16,001 population. However, there are 10 more communities located in the nearby Lafayette area.

The state's facilities are either designated as assisted living facilities or residential care facilities, but the only distinctions between them is that residential care facilities provide basic nursing services. Because of this, communities designated as assisted living facilities only need to file a disclosure form with the Family and Social Services (FFS) Division of Aging to remain compliant with state laws. Residential care facilities, however, are licensed and regulated by the Indiana State Board of Health Administrators.
