    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Akron

    Akron, nestled in northeastern Ohio, has been the home of the Soap Box Derby since 1934. Some of the 25,166 Akron seniors may enjoy watching this event and reminiscing about their own racing days. For area seniors in need of some help with daily tasks like housekeeping, bathing and dressing, there are nine assisted living facilities located in Akron, with another 25 in neighboring areas.

    In Akron, and throughout Ohio, assisted living facilities are known as Residential Care Facilities (RCFs) and are regulated by the Ohio Department of Health. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Akron

    • The Akron METRO Regional Transit Authority operates the city's public bus system. Seniors age 62 and older qualify for discounted ride fares, making it easier for low-income seniors to traverse the city. To take advantage of the discounted fare, seniors only need to present the driver with their ID or Medicare card to prove their age.
    • On average, the cost of living in Akron is 73.4, considerably lower than the national average of 100. Seniors in Akron may be able to find goods and services, healthcare, and utilities at affordable prices.
    • Ohio does not tax social security benefits. This may leave more money available for Akron seniors' facility budgets.
    • Akron's air quality is poor, ranking 53 on a scale where 100 represents the areas with the best air quality, slightly lower than the national average of 58. This may be a concern for seniors with respiratory illness.
    • Akron has warm summers with temperatures reaching 83 degrees and cooler winters with temperatures dropping down to 22. Annual rainfalls total 39 inches, on par with the national average, and yearly snowfalls total 47 inches, 31 inches more than the national average of 26. With all of the precipitation, the area only sees 164 sunny days each year, almost a full third less than the national average of 205, which could make it difficult for seniors who enjoy spending a lot of time outdoors. 
    • The Akron area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Summa Health System - Akron Campus and Select Specialty Hospital - Akron, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    It’s important to note that assisted living rates in Akron and the surrounding suburbs can vary widely based on factors such as location, the level of care needed, apartment size and the types of amenities offered at each community.

    Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Akron

    Akron seniors who need help paying the monthly costs of assisted living can apply for one or both of Ohio's financial assistance programs: a Medicaid waiver program and the supplemental SSI payment program.

    The Assisted Living Waiver, which is part of the state's Medicaid program, helps seniors residing in assisted living facilities pay for personal care services. Supplemental SSI payments are also available to seniors who qualify for regular SSI payments. Both programs can be applied for through the Summit County Department of Job and Family Services.

    Learn more about these programs, plus who’s eligible, on our Assisted Living in Ohio page.

    More Ways to Pay for Assisted Living

    • Veterans Benefits
    • Life Insurance Policy
    • Long-Term Care Insurance
    • Reverse Mortgage

    For more information about different ways to finance assisted living, visit our Assisted Living in Ohio page.
