Georgetown is a Kentucky city most widely recognized for its Victorian streetscape and historic homes, which residents can explore on a self-guided two-mile walking tour. The city's earliest residents arrived at least 15,000 years ago, and its earliest European settlers arrived in the 1770s. Since then, the city has grown to over 34,000 residents, about 10% of whom are 65 and older.
Seniors who need assistance with the activities of daily living may choose to live in one of the region's seven assisted living facilities, three of which are located in Georgetown proper. These facilities are categorized based on how they are funded. Assisted living communities, which are privately run and do not receive public funding, are certified by the Kentucky Department for Aging and Independent Living. Personal care homes, which are publicly funded, are governed by the Cabinet for Health Services, Office of Inspector General, Division of Health Care.
