    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Kokomo

    Kokoma is located in Howard County and has a population of 58, 075. It is home to seven assisted living facilities with two more located in nearby areas. Seniors in Indiana can choose to reside in either an assisted living facility (ALF) or a residential care facility (RCF). Both provide regular assisted living services such as three meals per day and help with regular activities of daily living. However, RCFs also provide assistance with medication administration and basic nursing services. The Indiana State Board of Health Facility Administrators regulates care for RCFs, but ALFs are only required to file a disclosure form with the Family and Social Services (FFS) Division of Aging.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Kokomo

    • Kokomo has a fixed-route public bus system called the CityLine Trolley, which makes it easy for seniors to travel through the city. However, seniors who are able to schedule transportation at least one day in advance should consider using the city’s Spirit of Kokomo services instead. It’s a para-transit service specifically for seniors over the age of 60 and disabled people.

    • The Kokomo area is home to world-class medical facilities, including St. Vincent Kokomo, Community Howard Regional Health and Community Howard Specialty Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Kokomo’s crime rate is 91 percent higher than other cities and towns in Indiana of a similar size. Its crime rate per thousand residents is also higher than most.
