In the past three years, the north side of the county has become a hot spot for facilities offering senior housing and medical care.

Spurred by an aging population and residents’ desire to stay in one place as they need increasing medical care over time, four facilities offering independent living and assisted living have been built in the Center Grove area. All of the new facilities were built and others are planned within a seven-mile area along State Road 135.

Between assisted-living apartments with progressive levels of nursing care and nursing home rooms, the facilities can house more than 400 residents and offer jobs for about 370 employees.
