    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Paducah

    Paducah, Kentucky, was chartered as a city in 1856 and was an important area due to its close proximity to coal fields and dry dock facilities for steamboats and towboats. Paducah celebrates its history with local attractions such as the Paducah Railroad Museum and offers seniors the choice of five Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs) in town and another eight located close by.

    In Kentucky, there are two types of ALFs: assisted living communities are private, for-profit businesses which require certification, while personal care homes may be publicly funded and must be licensed. Both facility types are governed by the Kentucky Department for Aging and Independent Living

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Paducah

    • Paducah's mild climate allows seniors to enjoy outdoor activities in four distinct seasons. The summers are warm with an average high temperature of 89 degrees Fahrenheit, and the winters are mild with an average low temperature of 26 degrees and only six inches of snowfall. Even seniors with limited mobility can be active throughout the year.

    • Although violent crime is rated at 23.7 out of 100 (1 being the safest), which is lower than the national average of 31.1, property crime is rated at 60.4, which is much higher than the national average of 38.1. Due to these statistics, seniors living on their own may feel unsafe in Paducah.  

    • The Paducah Area Transit System (PATS) offers a fixed route schedule, curb-to-curb services and non-emergency medical transportation for residents. Seniors do not receive a reduced fare, but they are welcome to schedule pickups and drop-offs for their convenience.

    • Seniors living in Kentucky's McCracken County can breathe easy thanks to good air quality. The American Lung Association gave this area an Ozone score of B and a Particle Pollution 24-hour score of A. 

    • The Paducah area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Baptist Health Paducah, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    • Seniors can take part in Paducah’s vibrant art community by exploring the unique exhibits at the Maiden Alley Cinema & Gallery and the Yeiser Art Center. Seniors may also enjoy classical performances and support local musicians at the Paducah Symphony Orchestra
