    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Oneonta

    Oneonta, Alabama, is home to the historic Horton Mill covered bridge. Seniors can observe this piece of history that stands 70 feet above the Black Warrior River, making it one of the highest covered bridges in the nation. This small city has a little under 6,600 residents, but it has a large senior community that makes up over 18% of the population — some of whom may be in need of help with daily tasks. 

    There are three assisted living facilities in the Oneonta region, including two in the city proper and one in the nearby city of Cleveland. The Alabama Department of Public Health licenses three categories of assisted living facilities, depending on the number of residents they accommodate. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Oneonta

    • In Oneonta, seniors pay state income tax on income they draw from retirement savings accounts, but pension income and Social Security benefits are not taxed at the state level. 
    • The Oneonta area is home to world-class medical facilities, including St. Vincent's Blount, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 
      • Blount County Transportation provides public transportation in Oneonta. Among the services are demand response and routes to local senior centers and the Retired Senior Volunteer Program. One aide or attendant may accompany a senior passenger at no charge.
      • The cost of living in Oneonta is about 3% higher than the overall cost in Alabama but about 8% below the nation as a whole, which may make it an affordable choice for seniors on fixed incomes. 
      • While the overall crime rate in Oneonta is higher than the U.S. average, most of the crime that takes place is property-related. On a 100-point scale, with a higher score representing more reported crime, the violent crime rate is 15.1 compared to the U.S. average of 22.7, and the property crime rate is 46.7 compared to the U.S. average of 35.4. Seniors may want to ensure that their vehicle is locked and belongings secured when they're out alone in the community. 
      • Summers in Oneonta are very warm with highs around 90 degrees, which may be a consideration for seniors who are sensitive to heat. Winters are chilly with lows around 30 degrees, but the area receives just 1 inch of annual snowfall.
