    What to Consider About Assisted Living in West Lafayette

    West Lafayette, which is located in Tippecanoe County, Indiana, is home to Purdue University and was named by the U.S. News & World Report in 2008 as one of the top 10 "Brainiest Places to Retire." While the median age of this college town is 21.7, West Lafayette has a senior community that makes up about 7% of the population of 48,000 people. 

    West Lafayette has four assisted living facilities, and there are six more nearby for local seniors to choose from. These facilities are officially called residential care facilities and are governed by the Family and Social Services Agency Division of Aging.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in West Lafayette

    • Retirees in West Lafayette pay state income tax on every type of retirement income except for their Social Security benefits. While the state has a relatively high sales tax rate, property taxes are fairly low, which may benefit seniors who own homes. 
    • The air quality in West Lafayette is exceptional. According to the American Lung Association, the region has very low particle pollution levels, which is beneficial to seniors with conditions like asthma and COPD.
    • The West Lafayette area has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Lafayette. 
    • Public transportation in West Lafayette is provided by CityBus, which operates seven routes in the city and several more in the surrounding area. Medicare recipients and seniors age 65 and over are eligible to ride for half-fare
    • West Lafayette's crime rate is higher than 63% of U.S. cities, and residents have a one in 55 chance of being the victim of a violent or property-related crime. The city's violent crime rate is near the national median, but the property crime rate is higher than average. Seniors may want to make sure that the assisted living facility they choose prioritizes resident safety with security features like surveillance cameras. 
    • While West Lafayette's overall cost of living is about 4% lower than the national average, it is roughly 8% higher than the statewide average, which may be a concern for seniors who are relocating from a more affordable Indiana city.
