The city of Elizabethtown has 14 assisted living facilities near Elizabethtown, six of which are located within the city limits.

    • The low cost of living is one of the advantages seniors enjoy in Elizabethtown. With a cost of living index of 88.6, the city is substantially lower than the national average. Its low rates are very near the Kentucky average for groceries, but Elizabethtown has far lower rates for health care than both the country and the state.
