For seniors who prefer fine arts, the center has an art gallery and there are workshops to help people harness their creativity.
    • The cost of living in Madisonville is 79 on the Sperling index, 21 points lower than the national average of 100. This is largely due to the low cost of housing in the city. Healthcare in Madisonville is more expensive than the national average, with a rating of 103. This may mean that seniors with chronic health conditions have less money available for assisted living.
