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.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Terre Haute

  • Terre Haute Transit operates the city’ public bus system. Seniors are eligible for discounted single-ride rates.

  • Even though Terre Haute’s overall cost of living is lower than Indiana’s average, the cost of things like groceries and health care is slightly higher than the state averages. This could make it difficult for seniors on a low or fixed income to find affordable options.

  • Indiana is a state that’s considered moderately tax-friendly to seniors. Social Security income is completely tax-free, but withdrawals from retirement accounts and pension payments are taxed at the state’s full rate of 3.23 percent.

  • The Terre Haute area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Terre Haute Regional Hospital, Union Hospital and VA Terre Haute Clinic, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

  • More than 99 percent of Indiana’s communities have crime rates lower than Terre Haute. While this is to be expected with larger cities, Terre Haute’s combined violent and property crime rates are also significantly higher than those in similar cities.

  • Terre Haute’s moderately warm springs, summers, and autumns make it easy for seniors to enjoy outdoor activities on a regular basis.
