What to Consider About Assisted Living in Fairborn

Located northeast of Dayton, Fairborn is a quiet residential suburb with a population of 33,541 — 14.4 percent of whom consists of seniors aged 65 and older. To serve the city's aging population, Fairborn has two assisted living facilities with another 35 located in nearby communities.

All of these facilities are overseen by the Ohio Department of Health. The state inspects assisted living facilities annually to ensure they are up to code and remain a safe, healthy environment for the residents.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Fairborn

  • The weather in Fairborn is similar to that in the rest of southwest Ohio. For the most part, it's mild with summer temperatures averaging 75 degrees in July. The winter weather can be a bit harsh though. Average temperatures in January are 29 degrees, and snow and sleet aren't uncommon. This could make it difficult for seniors to take part in outdoor activities during winter.
  • While the city's air quality is 3 percent better than the national average, Fairborn's pollution index is 128 percent higher than the U.S. median. This could make it difficult for seniors with respiratory illnesses and other breathing problems to spend time outside on a regular basis.
  • Fairborn seniors shouldn't have to worry about their personal safety during outings in the city. The city's crime rate is 13 percent lower than the Ohio average and 14 percent lower than that of the United States. Also, the majority of the area's crime is property related. The city's violent crime rate is 37 percent lower than the U.S. average.
  • The cost of living in Fairborn is 10 percent lower than the national average and 1 percent lower than the state average. Some of this is due to the lower cost of groceries, which averages 4 percent less the national average, and the cost of healthcare services, around 13 percent lower than the national average. This should make it easier for Fairborn seniors to find affordable health services on a regular basis.
  • The Fairborn area has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Beavercreek.
  • Ohio seniors don't need to worry about paying income tax on their Social Security income. However, withdrawals from retirement accounts are fully taxed at the rate of 2.97 percent and pension payments are partially taxed.
