What to Consider About Assisted Living in Henderson

Henderson, located along the Ohio River, was the home of naturalist John James Audubon and blues musician W.C. Handy. The original town was surveyed and laid out by Daniel Boone (at the request of founder Richard Henderson) in the late 18th century. Seniors interested in living in this area have 15 assisted living facilities (ALFs) located in and around Henderson, Kentucky. They are regulated and licensed by the Kentucky Department for Aging and Independent Living to ensure residents age in place with dignity, respect and the care they need.
