Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Cincinnati
- Cincinnati tends to go through cold winters with a lot of snow and mild summers with spontaneous showers. December temperatures drop as low as 22 degrees Fahrenheit, and July reaches highs of up to 87 degrees Fahrenheit. The 42 inches of rain that fall here each year can raise enough pollen to be an issue for seniors with asthma in the spring and summer.
Living costs are relatively low in Cincinnati. Groceries here cost almost exactly the national average, though seniors who pay for their own utilities can expect about a 9 percent discount over what the bill would be elsewhere in the country.
- Ohio's income tax covers a short range, from 0.495 to 4.997 percent. Local income tax adds an additional fee of up to 3 percent. SSI and most forms of retirement income are exempt for many seniors. Sales tax in Ohio adds from 6.5 to 8 percent to most purchases. On top of that, the state charges a gas tax that adds 28 cents to every gallon.
Cincinnati's crime rate is significantly higher than elsewhere in the nation. Fortunately for seniors, much of Cincinnati's crime is residential and unlikely to affect seniors who live in assisted living communities with the legally required 24-hour staffing.
- Cincinnati's seniors can get around town on the city's Metro bus system. Metro offers discounts on senior fares, as well as dial-a-ride services for special trips and riders with mobility issues.
