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.
