What to Consider About Assisted Living in Fairfield

Fairfield, OH, is a mostly residential suburb north of Cincinnati that's home to 45,000 people. Thirty-two assisted living communities operate here, where seniors who need help with activities of daily living (ADLs) live with as much independence and privacy as their health allows. Many local properties in Fairfield offer help with offsite transport for medical visits and other appointments, and many more organize regular community activities for their residents. All of Ohio's residential care homes are regulated by the Ohio Department of Health’s Office of Health Assurance and Licensing, which publishes guidelines for residence health and safety standards, as well as conducts inspections to ensure a high quality of care.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Fairfield

  • Fairfield is close enough to Cincinnati to share its weather, which can be cold in winter and mild to warm in summer. December lows in Fairfield range as low as 22 degrees Fahrenheit, which can be challenging for seniors with COPD and other respiratory issues. Summer highs rise to 87 degrees Fahrenheit. This area gets about 42 inches of rain in a typical year.

  • Fairfield's cost of living is quite a bit lower than the national average. Seniors who buy their own groceries pay only 90 percent of the national median, while health care here costs just 95 percent of the average rates nationwide.

  • Ohio charges income taxes that run from 0.495 to 4.997 percent, to which local income tax can add between 0 and 3 percent. SSI and most forms of retirement income are exempt, though sales tax in Ohio runs from 6.5 to 8 percent. 
  • Crime in Fairfield has recently fallen to less than two-thirds the national rate in most categories. Crimes of special concern to seniors, such as assault and robbery, are especially low.

  • Butler County Regional Transit Authority (BCRTA) runs six routes around the city center. Seniors qualify for discount fares on regular routes, and connections are available to Metro routes in neighboring Cincinnati.
  • The Fairfield area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Mercy Health - Fairfield Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Fairfield

Seniors in Ohio who qualify for Medicaid with no co-pay may qualify for the state's Assisted Living Waiver.
