What to Consider About Assisted Living in Canton
Canton, OH, is the place where modern football began, and today it's home to the National Football Hall of Fame. It's also home to 15 assisted living communities, where seniors get the help they need with various activities of daily living (ADLs), such as bathing, personal care, dressing and meal preparation. Many communities also organize special events and group day trips for their residents, though this varies by the property. All residential care homes in Ohio come under the umbrella of the Ohio Department of Health’s Office of Health Assurance and Licensing, which inspects sites for quality of care and health and safety issues.
Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Canton
- Canton is close enough to Akron, OH, to share much of its weather. Summer highs in this part of Ohio rise to 84 degrees Fahrenheit, while winter lows dip to 20 degrees Fahrenheit in December. The cold and dry air of winter can sometimes create difficulty for seniors with temperature-sensitive breathing issues, such as COPD.
Canton's cost of living is somewhat lower than it is nationally. Groceries here typically cost only 96 percent what they do elsewhere, while seniors who pay for their own health care are likely to have bills up to 2 percent lower than elsewhere in America.
- Ohio has a statewide income tax that runs from 0.495 to 4.997 percent for most forms of income from work. Local income taxes add between 0 and 3 percent for most of the state's employed residents. Social Security income and other types of retirement income are tax-exempt.
- Canton's crime rates are unfortunately high, with some categories at about double the national average. Crimes that most affect seniors, such as assault, are less common though, and most of the property crime is unlikely to be an issue for seniors in fully staffed assisted living communities.
- The Stark Area Regional Transit Authority operates 40 bus routes around the city. Senior discounts are available for adults over 60 with valid ID. These IDs can be had from any of the Authority's public offices.
- The Canton area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Aultman Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
