What to Consider About Assisted Living in New Castle

New Castle, Indiana, is home to the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame, a 14,000-square-foot museum with interactive exhibits, jerseys, trophies and photos of Indiana's most prominent basketball players. This museum is located in the southwestern region of the city and is easily accessible to the city's 17,000 residents, including seniors.

New Castle has a large senior community that makes up 18% of the total population. Seniors who can no longer live at home alone safely may transition to one of New Castle's four assisted living facilities. These facilities are officially called residential care facilities, and they're governed by Indiana's Family and Social Services Agency Division of Aging

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in New Castle

  • The New Castle area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Henry Community Health, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 
  • New Castle Community Transit is the public transportation system in New Castle. It has four main routes and has regularly scheduled stops at the local hospital and shopping center. Seniors age 60 and over are eligible to ride for a half-fare, and accompanying caregivers can ride for free.  
  • New Castle retirees don't pay state income tax on the money they receive from Social Security. However, pension income and withdrawals from retirement accounts are fully taxed, which may impact how much money local seniors can put toward assisted living expenses.
  • With a cost of living that is nearly 20% below the national average, New Castle may be an economical choice for seniors with restrictive retirement budgets. Healthcare is especially affordable here at about 20% lower than the U.S. average, which may benefit seniors with chronic health conditions.
  • New Castle residents have a 1 in 67 chance of being the victim of any type of crime, and a majority of the crime that takes place here is property-related. The city is safer than 46% of other U.S. cities and 28% safer than other Indiana cities. As they're visiting local assisted living facilities, seniors may want to find out what security measures are taken to protect residents. 
  • New Castle summers are long, warm and humid with highs around 83 degrees and muggy conditions over 50% of the time, which may be a consideration for seniors with respiratory conditions. Winters are chilly with lows near 20 degrees.
