    Elizabethtown is a small family community located between the commercial hub of Harrisburg and the tourist-friendly Amish country of Lancaster. Just over 13,000 people live in Elizabethtown, 22.5% of whom are seniors aged 65 and over. The area in and around Elizabethtown is home to 38 assisted living facilities, where seniors can live as independently as their health allows.
