What to Consider About Assisted Living in Terre Haute
Terre Haute is located in western Indiana and is home to several universities including the University of Indiana. There are three assisted living communities in Terre Haute located just outside of town. Indiana has two different options for seniors in need of assisted living services: assisted living facilities (ALFs) and residential care facilities (RCFs). ALFs offer basic services such as help with the normal activities of daily living and daily meal service for up to three meals per day. These communities have to register a disclosure form with the Family and Social Services (FSS) Division of Aging. RCFs offer these services as well, but they also provide residents with help administering medications and basic nursing services. RCFs are licensed by the Indiana State Board of Health Facility Administrators.
