What To Consider About Assisted Living in Austintown

Assisted living facilities in Ohio are overseen by the Bureau of Regulatory Operations at the Ohio Department of Health. In addition to its licensing responsibilities, the bureau performs at least one surprise inspection of each residential care facility in the state every 15 months.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Austintown

  • Living in Austintown can help seniors’ retirement dollars go further. The overall cost of living in Austintown is 27% below the U.S. average, with the cost of health care in particular 17% below. The area’s sales tax rate, 7.3%, is identical to the national average, but the income tax rate of 3.5% is appreciably lower than the national average of 4.6%.
  • Austintown’s weather is ideal for seniors who enjoy warm summers within a four-season climate. June-to-September highs hover in the mid-70s and mid-80s, and Austintown sees slightly more winter snowfall than most U.S. cities, averaging 43 inches a year to the nation’s average of 28. One downside is that the sun is out less often than elsewhere: Austintown gets just 161 sunny days a year, notably fewer than the U.S. average of 205.
  • Getting around the town and to nearby Youngstown is easy and exceptionally inexpensive.  Youngstown’s public transit service, the WRTA, operates a completely free bus system with a line that goes through much of Austintown and includes a stop at the Austintown Senior Center. The bus runs 12 hours a day, 6 days a week.
  • Austintown residents are within a 15-minute drive of Mercy Health-St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital. U.S. News & World Report ranks this hospital in Ohio’s top 20 and rates it as high-performing in six categories: stroke, heart attack, heart failure, kidney failure, COPD and diabetes.
  • Violent crime is notably lower in Austintown than elsewhere in the nation: The U.S. average is 22.7 on a 100-point scale, but Austintown’s violent crime rate is 14.6. The city’s property crime rate is mostly on par with national trends but is likely to be less of an issue for people residing in assisted living facilities.
