What to Consider About Assisted Living in Greencastle

Surrounded by lush farmland, Greencastle is home to approximately 10,000 residents. This Midwestern city is about an hour’s drive from Indianapolis and Terre Haute, putting seniors close to big-city amenities when the urge for a day trip strikes.

About 15.4% of Greencastle’s residents are aged 65 and older. The city provides three assisted living communities to accommodate seniors who need help with personal care and other activities of daily living. The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH), Division of Long-Term Care has governance over the ALFs in Greencastle as well as those in the rest of the state.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Greencastle

  • Seniors with limited financial resources may appreciate Greencastle’s cost of living, which is about 15% lower than the U.S. average. The price of housing is the main contributing factor, but seniors pay less for healthcare, transportation and groceries too.
  • While Indiana exempts Social Security retirement benefits from taxation, income from IRAs, 401(k)s and private pensions are fully taxable. Seniors considering a move to Greencastle should know that the Hoosier State is one of Kiplinger's least tax-friendly states for retirees.
  • Greencastle is home to DePauw University, which gives seniors access to an array of cultural resources. The 175-acre campus hosts a wide range of speakers, musical performers and theatrical events. The University also features a 520-acre nature park with 8.7 miles of trails and an amphitheater.
  • Older adults seeking a comfortable year-round climate won’t find it in Greencastle. With an average of 20 inches of snow and 45 inches of rain annually and a January low of 18 degrees, active seniors may suffer from winter cabin fever. Add the excessively humid summers, and it’s easy to see why the city’s Sperling’s Comfort Index score is a low 39 out of 100.
  • Greencastle’s violent crime ranking of 15.4 is lower than the U.S. average of 22.7, but property crime is higher here. On a scale of 1 to 100 with 1 being low crime, Greencastle ranks a 48.5, higher than the U.S. average of 35.4. Families considering a Greencastle assisted living facility for a loved one should inquire about the security and surveillance systems.
  • The Greencastle area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Putnam County Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
