    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Pendleton

    Pendleton, Indiana is a small town — population 4,307 — with a forward-thinking attitude. Seniors can enjoy the close-knit community feeling small towns are known for without giving up access to modern amenities. Pendleton is considered part of the Anderson metropolitan area, which has seven assisted living facilities. The facilities are either classified as assisted living facilities (ALFs) or residential care facilities (RCFs). Both provide seniors with assistance with their normal activities of daily living (ADLs) to help them maintain a fairly independent lifestyle. RCFs also provide medication administration assistance and basic nursing services. The Indiana State Board of Health Facility Administrators regulates RCFs, but the Family and Social Services (FSS) Division of Aging monitors ALFs.
