What to Consider About Assisted Living in Alliance
Alliance, OH, was formed in the 19th century from the merger of several smaller towns, two of which were called Freedom and Liberty. Today, the Ohio Department of Health’s Office of Health Assurance and Licensing regulates Alliance's eight assisted living communities with an eye toward protecting the freedom and independence of the hundreds of seniors who live in them. Residents of Ohio's assisted living facilities get room and board, help taking some medications and regular assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), such as dressing and grooming.
Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Alliance
- Alliance is only a few miles southeast of Akron, close enough to share its weather. Mild summer highs of 84 degrees Fahrenheit drop to winter lows of 20 degrees Fahrenheit in January here, which sometimes makes outdoor activities difficult for seniors with COPD and other breathing issues.
- Alliance's cost of living is slightly lower than the cost in most other communities in America. Seniors who shop for groceries here can expect to pay about 96 percent the national average, while health care costs are just about 98 percent of the national median.
- State income tax in Ohio runs from 0.495 to 4.997 percent, though individual communities may impose a local income tax of up to 3 percent. Aging citizens who depend on SSI and many kinds of retirement income may be exempt. Seniors may notice sales tax adding 6.5 to 8 percent to their purchases.
Crime rates in Alliance are generally 20 to 30 percent higher than national averages, though most of this is property crime and theft. Violent crimes, which are of special concern to seniors, are lower in Alliance than elsewhere in Ohio.
- Alliance is part of a regional transit network run by the Stark Area Regional Transit Authority (SARTA). This service runs buses through five medium-sized local cities, offers discounts for seniors and riders with disabilities and operates ADA-compliant vehicles that make travel easy and comfortable for riders with limited mobility.
