What to Consider About Assisted Living in Chillicothe

Nestled along the banks of the Scioto River, Chillicothe is a city with a sizable senior population. However, even though seniors over the age of 55 comprise 34.9 percent of the city's population, Chillicothe only has three assisted living facilities available. Two of these are in Chillicothe proper, and one is located in a community nearby. All of these facilities are regulated by the Ohio Department of Health and are commonly referred to as residential care facilities.
