What to Consider About Assisted Living in Columbus

Columbus, located along the Scioto River in Ohio, hosts the largest single breed horse show in the world every year in October, an event that's looked forward to by the 787,033 residents who call the city home. Of those residents, more than 67,000 are seniors, some of whom may need assistance with daily living activities. There are 27 assisted living facilities in Columbus to support and assist those seniors.

In Ohio, including Columbus, assisted living facilities are called Residential Care Facilities (RCFs) and are governed by the Ohio Department of Health

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Columbus

  • The Columbus area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Riverside Methodist Hospital and The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • The Central Ohio Transit Authority (COTA) operates the city's public bus system. Seniors who are 65 years or older can apply for a Reduced Fare Senior ID card.
  • Columbus is a member of AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning that its elected leadership “has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages,” according to AARP. 
  • Ohio, including Columbus, does not tax seniors on social security benefits, however, pensions are partially taxed and retirement savings account withdrawals are fully taxed. Seniors on fixed incomes might want to keep these tax laws in mind when relocating to Columbus.
  • The cost of living in Columbus is 90.4, almost 10 points less than the national average of 100. Healthcare is also lower than the average at 89. Area seniors may find that the lower cost of living results in more money to put toward their facility expenses.
  • Columbus residents enjoy all four seasons with summer highs of 85 degrees and winter lows dipping down to 20. The city also gets 40 inches of rain and 22 inches of snow each year. Seniors who enjoy watching the seasons change might like living in Columbus.
