What to Consider About Assisted Living in Eaton

Eaton is a small suburb of Dayton, Ohio, and is home to the annual Preble County Fair. The population of Eaton is just 8,200, but 21% are seniors aged 65 and older. This is a demographic that will likely need housing in an assisted living facility as they age, where the staff is on hand around the clock to help with mobility, daily living tasks and light health care. To accommodate these seniors, Eaton is home to 3 assisted living homes. 

In the state of Ohio, assisted living facilities are referred to as residential care facilities. They are licensed and regulated by the Ohio Department of Health. Each facility is subject to an unannounced inspection at least once per year, and staff working there are required to have certain certifications and training.
