Assisted Living Costs

Assisted living in Cleveland can be pricey. The median monthly price for a one-bedroom single-occupancy room in an assisted living community is $4,246 according to a 2015 Genworth study. That puts the cost of living in Cleveland well above the Ohio median of $3,890 and slightly more than the median prices in Cincinnati and Columbus.

These costs usually include not just rent but also meals, activities, transportation and at least minimal care or medication management. Ohio doesn’t tax Social Security, which can help seniors cover the hefty price of assisted living in the city.

University Circle is a neighborhood on the east side of the city that also includes many cultural and outdoors sites.
