    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Barberton

    Barberton, Ohio, got its start as a whistlestop on the great rail link between New York and Chicago in 1890. By 1892, the town had grown so fast (the population having doubled three times in as many years) it got the nickname "the Magic City." The Ohio Department of Health’s Office of Health Assurance and Licensing regulates Barberton's 12 assisted living communities with an eye toward maximizing seniors' independence and privacy. Staff at these facilities provide 24-hour emergency response, help to take medications and general assistance with the activities of daily living (ADLs) that have become difficult for their residents to handle alone such as dressing and meal prep. Facilities throughout Ohio are regularly inspected by the department for health, safety and quality of care.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Barberton

    • In Barberton, winter lows can drop to 20 degrees Fahrenheit in January. This can be uncomfortable for seniors with COPD or asthma, but the area's mild, 84-degree-Fahrenheit summers make up for the discomfort. Barberton gets about 36 inches of rain a year.

    • Cost of living in Barberton is not too high by national standards. Health care here costs an average of 92 percent what seniors pay elsewhere in America, though transportation costs can be as high as 7 percent above the national rate.

    • Ohio charges a 6.5 to 8 percent sales tax on goods. This can be problematic for seniors who shop for themselves, though the state income tax of 0.495 to 0.497 percent (plus up to 3 percent locally) don't apply to SSI and other types of retirement income. 

    • Barberton's crime rate is close to the national numbers in most categories. Seniors are generally safe here, especially inside their staffed assisted living communities.

    • Public transportation in Barberton is handled on a regional level, by the METRO Regional Transit Authority. This service operates bus and rail connections throughout the Akron area, and discounts are available for adults over 60 and those with disabilities.

    • The Barberton area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Summa Health System – Barberton Campus, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
