Seniors age 55 and older make up 27.4 percent of the town's 21,709 population, and it's not uncommon to see them driving golf carts in town. The area houses three assisted living facilities to serve its aging population, all of which provide assistance with things like personal grooming, cleaning and eating. Facilities that provide basic nursing care are referred to as residential care facilities, and they are regulated by the Indiana State Board of Health Administrators.
