What to Consider About Assisted Living in Crown Point
The small town of Crown Point, Indiana, is known for hosting community events in its charming downtown square. Seniors can enjoy annual fireworks shows, a St. Patrick's Day parade with illuminated floats and a regular Saturday-afternoon farmer's market in the summer months.
Seniors age 65 and older make up 18.6 percent of Crown Point's population, and the area houses 15 assisted living facilities to fit their needs. Four facilities are located in Crown Point, and 11 more sit in nearby towns and cities. These are divided into two facility types: assisted living facilities (ALFs) and residential care facilities (RCFs). Both provide assistive services with activities of daily living (ADLs) such as bathing, dressing and grooming. However, RCFs also provide help with medication administration and basic nursing services. Because of this, RCFs are regulated by the Indiana State Board of Health Facility Administrators.
Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Crown Point
- The Gary Public Transportation Corp. (GPTC) runs a public bus system throughout the Crown Point area. Seniors can take advantage of reduced single-ride fares when navigating the city. However, reduced rates for monthly passes are not available.
Crown Point’s cost of living is higher than the state median and the national average, so seniors can expect to pay a bit more for things like groceries and health care.
- Seniors don’t have to worry about paying taxes on Social Security income in Indiana. However, because pension payments and withdrawals from retirement accounts are fully taxed, the state is only considered moderately tax-friendly to seniors.
- The Crown Point area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Pinnacle Hospital Crown Point, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
- Crown Point’s crime rate is lower than 36 percent of Indiana communities. When compared to other cities similar in size by population, its crime rate is actually noticeably lower than average. This may be a relief to seniors who are worried about their personal safety.
- Crown Point has cold winters, which makes it difficult for seniors to enjoy outdoor activities year-round. However, the city’s moderate summer temperatures are ideal for seniors who don’t handle high levels of heat well.
