    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lafayette

    Located 63 miles northwest of Indianapolis and 105 miles southeast of Chicago, Lafayette makes a good home base for seniors who enjoy day trips and overnight outings. The mid-size city has a population of 71,111, with seniors over the age of 60 making up 15.7 percent of it. There are nine assisted living facilities in the Lafayette area — five are within the Lafayette city limits and four are in nearby communities. Two assisted living options are available: assisted living facilities (ALFs) and residential care facilities (RCFs). Both provide basic assistive services, but RCFs also help residents with medication administration and their nursing needs. RCFs are licensed by the Indiana State Board of Health Facility Administrators because they provide minimal nursing services, but ACFs are monitored by the Family and Social Services (FFS) Division of Aging.
