Warsaw is the county seat of Kosciusko County, sitting midway between South Bend and Fort Wayne. According to the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2019 estimates, 13.3% of its 15,150 population is in the 65+ age group. Some of the city’s appeal for seniors is its favorable cost of living and local attractions, including the artisan market and numerous parks.
A consequence of age for some is difficulty doing everyday tasks, such as housekeeping. Assisted living communities are for seniors who need help with some tasks while retaining their independence in everything else. The cost of each facility is unique, varying between states and the cities within them. The 2020 Genworth Cost of Care Survey reveals that in Warsaw, the average cost is $3,223 per month, significantly below the state average of $4,382 and the national average of $4,300.
This guide covers the costs of various types of senior care in Warsaw. It also discusses the city’s pros and cons and lists some of the resources open to families considering assisted living in the community.
