    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lexington

    The city of Lexington is in the heart of Kentucky’s Bluegrass region and is hailed as the Horse Capital of the World. Its attractive countryside features and convenient urban amenities offer seniors a desirable place to live. There are 20 assisted living communities in the Lexington-Fayette area including seven in surrounding towns. These senior facilities are certified yearly by the Department for Aging and Independent Living (DAIL) under the state of Kentucky’s Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS).

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lexington

    • Winters are mild in Lexington with an average low of 25 degrees in January, making horse farm visits and other outdoor activities more enjoyable for seniors.
    • The cost of living in Lexington is 8.1 percent lower than the national average, with health expenses closest to the nation’s average cost. Seniors may enjoy some tax savings as social security income is not taxed in Kentucky, while pensions and retirement benefits are partially taxable.
    • Traveling in and out of Lexington is convenient for seniors. There are many local flights from Blue Grass Airport, and Lextran offers half-price bus fares for adults 62+ as well as paratransit services. Seniors 60+ may avail themselves of ITNBluegrass membership for door-to-door private transportation available 24/7.
    • Lexington has an array of community resources for seniors including the Aging with Grace, Aging in Place - The Health Club for Seniors, an organization that offers wellness services, meals, transportation and various activities for members, as well as four senior centers.

    Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Lexington

    Assisted living communities in Lexington are recognized by the state of Kentucky as social models rather than health care agencies, thus no financing programs are offered for such facilities. However, seniors with disabilities may be eligible for Kentucky’s Hart-Supported Living Program or the Support for Community Living Waiver to fund for services provided by outside health care agencies while residing in assisted living communities.
