What to Consider About Assisted Living in Delaware

Assisted living communities in Delaware, as well as in the rest of Ohio, follow the Ohio Department of Health’s licensing rules for care planning, staffing and building features. The department officially licenses these communities as residential care facilities, and it ensures compliance with regulations through annual licensing procedures and routine inspections.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Delaware

 

  • In Ohio, assisted living residents don’t pay state income taxes on their Social Security benefits, which may help them afford monthly care expenses. Although income from pensions and retirement savings accounts is taxable, qualified seniors may claim credits to reduce what they owe to the state.

 

  • Delaware seniors can obtain transportation services through the Delaware County Transit’s Mobility Management program. This program maintains a directory of all transportation providers in the county and can direct seniors toward services that can take them to medical appointments, local grocery stores and entertainment venues, complementing the transportation services they may have access to through their assisted living community.

 

  • Delaware’s cost of living comes in about 9% below the national average. Local housing costs, utility expenses and groceries typically run low here compared to the nation as a whole, which may promote competitive assisted living expenses.

 

  • Crime, especially violent crime, occurs at a low rate in Delaware compared to the nation as a whole. On a 100-point scale that gives high scores to cities with higher crime rates, Delaware rates 10 for violent crime, which is less than half the national score of 22.7. The property crime rate is 34.1, slightly lower than the national score of 35.4.

 

  • Year-round daytime temperatures in Delaware range from 36 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit during the winter months and 82 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer, appealing to prospective assisted living residents who enjoy seasonal weather. The city gets 22 inches of snow compared to the national norm of 28 inches, and its annual rainfall aligns with the national average of 38 inches.

 

  • OhioHealth Grady Memorial Hospital sits within Delaware and has over two dozen areas of specialization. It has a senior health department with geriatricians who help older adults address age-related concerns and conditions, and it operates as the first hospital in Central Ohio and one of only a few in the nation with an Acute Care for the Elderly Unit.

The Cost of Other Types of Senior Care

Assisted living rates in Delaware come in at $4,085 per month, making it a budget-friendly option compared to other senior care solutions in the city. Although seniors who attend adult day health care spend 58% less on their monthly care expenses, this option only includes daytime services in a community setting, unlike assisted living, which also provides housing. Seniors who obtain nonmedical services through in-home care and those who arrange skilled nursing services at home through home health care pay 38% more per month than assisted living residents, and those who need intensive skilled nursing services and 24-hour monitoring pay $7,490 for nursing home care.
