    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Georgetown

    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.  

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Georgetown

    • Georgetown's crime rate is higher than that of the average U.S. city with comparable population size and density, and residents have a 1 in 34 chance of being a victim of any type of crime. Seniors may want to find out what measures are taken by their assisted living facility to keep residents safe.
    • Georgetown's summers are very warm with highs around 86 degrees, making it one of the cooler cities in Kentucky. Winters are chilly with lows in the low-20s, but the city only receives 8 inches of annual snowfall, which may appeal to seniors who rely on mobility aids.  
    • While the cost of living in Georgetown is about 7% higher than the statewide average, it is roughly 3% lower than the national average. This may benefit seniors with limited incomes.  
    • Georgetown seniors do not pay state income tax on Social Security benefits, and while other types of retirement income are taxed, seniors can claim a deduction to offset or eliminate this expense.  
    • The Georgetown area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Georgetown Community Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
      • Public transportation in Georgetown is provided courtesy of G Tran, which operates 11 routes Monday through Saturday. The buses are equipped with lifts to accommodate seniors who use mobility aids like wheelchairs.
