What to Consider About Assisted Living in Munster

Munster, which is located in Lake County, Indiana, is a peaceful town on the south shore of Lake Michigan. It is situated just 26 miles outside Chicago, providing seniors easy access to big-city amenities, including state-of-the-art medical facilities, entertainment venues and museums.

To support the senior community, which accounts for 19 percent of the population, the town offers one assisted living facility. Seniors who are willing to venture out from the city proper will find an additional 36 facilities nearby. These facilities, which provide at least one health-related service and two or more scheduled supportive services to five or more individuals, are licensed and monitored by the state's Family and Social Services Agency Division of Aging.
