    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Laporte

    Located about an hour's drive from Chicago, the city of La Porte, Indiana, may be a good choice for seniors who prefer affordability and small-town charm to the bustle and expense of living in a major metropolis. The city has grown to 22,000 people, with just over 15.3 percent being 65 and over.

    Seniors and their families who are looking for an assisted living community in the La Porte area have at least 16 from which to select, including those in neighboring cities such as Michigan City and Portage. In La Porte, as in the rest of Indiana, assisted living communities are licensed by the Indiana State Department of Health as Residential Care Facilities (RCFs).
