Care Homes in Indianapolis, IN

Residential care homes — sometimes called care homes, board and care homes, group homes, or personal care homes — are often houses in residential neighborhoods that are adapted, equipped, and staffed to care for a small number of residents, usually 10 or less. Similar to assisted living but in a smaller, more residential setting, these homes provide supervision, organized events, and assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). This means care homes can help with everyday routines but typically do not provide 24-hour skilled nursing assistance.

Cost of Care Homes in Indianapolis, IN

The cost of living in a care home depends largely on location. Since the homes are private residences, costs are tied to real estate value and therefore may vary greatly.

A Place for Mom’s local Senior Living Advisors can help find the right residential care home in Indianapolis for you or your loved one.

Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation

Known as “The Crossroads of America,” Indianapolis is the state capital and largest city of Indiana, and as such, offers many of the cultural and entertainment options one would expect from a large metropolitan area. To many, Indianapolis is perhaps best known for auto racing — the city is the home of the Indianapolis or Indy 500, the world’s oldest continuing auto race, which has been in operation since 1911. Outside racing season, auto aficionados can check out the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum which features a premier collection of automotive and racing memorabilia.

If racing isn’t your thing, there’s still plenty of reasons for living in Indianapolis. Fans of literature should be sure to check out both the Kurt Vonnegut Museum and Library, displaying artifacts of the author as well as hosting events, and the Center for Ray Bradbury Studies, an historic shrine dedicated to the famous science fiction author’s life and works.

For those who would rather spend time outdoors and relax in the beauty of nature, the Garfield Park Conservatory is a must-see destination. Originally built in 1916, the conservatory features 10,000 square feet of plants and flowers from all around the world. White River Gardens, an offshoot of the Indianapolis Zoo, is a 3.3-acre space consisting of a 5,000-square foot conservatory and the DeHaan Tiergarten, an expansive and ever-changing gardening and floral installation.
