    What to Consider About Assisted Living in La Porte

    The city of La Porte, which is located in LaPorte County in Indiana, is known for its unique turn-of-the-century architecture. This historical architecture can be enjoyed by seniors on the city's self-guided walking tour called A Stroll Along the Avenues, which covers Michigan and Indiana Avenues. 

    Of the city's population, about 17 percent are seniors. To support its aging population, the city has one assisted living community, and there are an additional five in nearby cities. These facilities are licensed and managed by the Family and Social Services Agency Division of Aging and offer at least one health-related service and two or more scheduled supportive services to five or more people.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in La Porte

    • Summers in La Porte are long, hot and humid, and winters are cold and windy. The year-round temperatures vary between 19 degrees Fahrenheit and 82 degrees, making this city a good option for seniors who enjoy experiencing four distinct seasons. 

    • Air quality has a significant impact on seniors' quality of life, especially those who have respiratory or cardiovascular illnesses. The American Lung Association gave LaPorte County an ozone grade of D and a short-term particle pollution grade of B. 

    • The cost of living in La Porte is about 14 percent below the national average. Seniors can expect to spend about 12 percent less on groceries and transportation here than they would in the average U.S. city and about 20 percent less on health care expenses. 

    • La Porte seniors do not pay state income tax on their Social Security benefit, but Indiana does tax income received from retirement accounts or pensions. 

    • While the rate of property crime is quite a bit higher than the nationwide average, the violent crime rate is significantly lower. Seniors should take precautions to keep their vehicles locked and personal possessions secured while they are out and about. 

    • The La Porte area is home to world-class medical facilities, including La Porte Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
