Assisted Living in Indiana DefinedBack to top
There is no exact definition of what constitutes assisted living in Indiana. Facilities offering services that are traditionally associated with “assisted living” are lumped into the category of residential care facilities, comprehensive care facilities or health facilities. According to Indiana state law, it does not appear that there is any clear distinction between these titles, although comprehensive care facilities may have an on-site physician and offer more medical services. If a community offering assisted living in Indiana does not administer medications to their residents, no license is required to operate the facility.

- Minimum size and required features
