    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Franklin

    Located about a 20-minute drive from Indianapolis, Franklin, Indiana, is a small city with quite a substantial senior community. Approximately, 27.8 percent of the people in Franklin are age 55 or older, and the area has seven assisted living facilities to meet their needs. These facilities are classified into two categories: assisted living facilities and residential care facilities. Both offer assistive services, such as help with dressing, cleaning, and bathing, but residential care facilities also offer basic nursing services and assistance with medication administration. The Indiana State Board of Health Facility Administrators regulates residential care facilities but assisted living communities are only required to file a disclosure form with the Family and Social Services Division of Aging.
