Why look for assisted living in Ohio?

Ohio has over 11 million people, which is a couple million more than rival Michigan to the north and a million less than comparable Pennsylvania. Ohio is sometimes forgotten as being approximately halfway between Chicago and New York. Fittingly, it makes a prime destination for seniors that may not want to live in one of those two metropolitan areas, yet have family that does, and can therefore come to visit in a reasonable amount of time.

The state of Ohio is also within proximity to Philadelphia, Boston, Washington, D.C., Toronto and Nashville so it would be hard to find a more centralized location in U.S. for senior living. The four distinct seasons of the land make it welcoming to retirees who don’t want the same weather year-round.

Ohio is also within reason for most families that can’t afford the expensive assisted living rates in New York or other parts of the northeast. Even Chicago is generally pricier for assisted living based on monthly rates (more information, below).

Types of Assisted Living Available in Ohio

Ohio offers several different varieties of assisted living and residential care communities. Some of the residential care units are known to be smaller in size, with a capped enrollment to keep numbers down.

Meanwhile, assisted living centers in Ohio have more open enrollment because they intend for the facilities to have more seniors. The number of activities and programs offered through a single assisted living complex can keep residents busy and entertained on a daily basis.

Paying for Assisted Living in Ohio

The Assisted Living Waiver Program is offered through Medicaid and is the state’s most direct way to pay for assisted living. The program can help cover services provided by a residential care community, yet will not cover room and board.

The Assisted Living Waiver Program also caps the number of members, and you must select from a list of approved providers for senior housing. It should also be noted that in select counties, the Assisted Living Waiver Program is referred to as MyCare Ohio.
