What to Consider About Assisted Living in Fairlawn

Fairlawn is a suburb of Cleveland in Northeast Ohio and is home to around 7,500 people, more than 24 percent seniors aged 65 or older. The city of Fairlawn has two assisted living facilities within the city limits to help provide care for this part of the population, and there are another 29 in nearby areas such as Akron, Cuyahoga Falls and Copley.

In Ohio, assisted living facilities are classified as residential care facilities or adult foster care homes, depending on the number of residents and the level of care required. The Ohio Department of Health and the Department on Aging are responsible for monitoring and licensing these facilities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Fairlawn

  • Ohio is considered a moderately tax-friendly state because while it does not tax Social Security retirement, it does tax other forms of retirement income such as 401(k)s and IRAs. However, there are also several credits available to qualifying seniors which may put more money back into the budget.
  • The Fairlawn area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Akron General Hospital and UH Fairlawn Health Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Summit County, Ohio, where Fairlawn is located, gets a B rating from the American Lung Association when it comes to ozone and particle polution levels. This means that seniors with cardiovascular or pulmonary issues may find it easier to manage their conditions here compared to other areas.
  • The Akron METRO system services the Fairlawn area and helps connect seniors to adjoining cities such as Akron and Cuyahoga Falls. Seniors and those with disabilities get a 60 percent discount on fares.
  • Ohio is known for its low cost of living, and while Fairlawn residents will pay about 4 percent more overall than the state average, there are still significant savings to be had. Healthcare and goods and services are 16 percent cheaper than the national average.
  • The weather in Fairlawn can be difficult for seniors who like to be outdoors. Summers are moderately warm, usually reaching the low 80s, and winter temps often drop down below freezing. This area also gets 11 more inches of snow than the U.S. average and 40 fewer sunny days.
