    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Bucyrus

    Bucyrus is a small city of about 11,800 people in northern Ohio, and at 21.4% of the population, seniors are well represented. The city calls itself the “Bratwurst Capital of America,” and seniors may enjoy the annual Bucyrus Bratwurst Festival, which features three days of food and music. 

    To support the city’s seniors as they age, there are three assisted living facilities in Bucyrus. In Ohio, assisted living facilities are licensed by the Ohio Department of Health to provide supervision and personal care for at least three seniors.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Bucyrus

    • The Bucyrus area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Bucyrus Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Safety-conscious seniors may be drawn to Bucyrus for its low rate of violent crime. In this city, an individual’s chance of becoming a victim of this type of crime is only one in 455. However, the city’s property crime rate is high compared to the state and national average.
    • With an overall cost of living that’s 24.4% lower than the national average, Bucyrus is an affordable place to retire. Seniors may choose to relocate here to make their retirement savings go further. Housing, healthcare, utilities, transportation and other necessities are all more affordable than the national average.
    • Bucyrus has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Crawford County Council on Aging, an organization that connects seniors with local services and programs, such as affordable transportation. It also operates one senior center.
    • Bucyrus only has 172 sunny days per year, on average, which is over a month less than the national average of 205 sunny days. Seniors who like to spend time outdoors may prefer to live somewhere with fewer cloudy days.
    • Arts and culture opportunities are limited, but seniors who enjoy hiking, biking or wildlife watching may want to visit the 137-acre Sears Woods State Nature Preserve. Assisted living communities may organize day trips to senior-friendly attractions in nearby Mansfield, such as museums, gardens and performing arts centers.
