Elizabethtown is located among the rolling hills in Kentucky, about 45 miles north of Louisville. With Fort Knox to the north and Mammoth Cave to the south, Elizabethtown offers a multitude of day trip options.

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. 

  • The violent crime rate in Elizabethtown is around the same as the U.S. average, so seniors should feel safe in this smaller community. The property crime rate, however, in the city is 11.4 points higher than the nation.
