    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Gahanna

    Gahanna, Ohio, is home to several parks, nature reserves, herb gardens, art galleries and museums to entertain the city's 35,297 residents, 14.7 percent of whom are seniors aged 65 or older. Seniors who require facility assistance will find two assisted living facilities located in the city with over 50 others nearby.

    In Gahanna and Ohio as a whole, assisted living facilities are called Residential Care Facilities (RCFs) and are overseen by the Ohio Department of Health.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Gahanna

    • Gahanna has poor air quality which may make it difficult for seniors with respiratory conditions. On a scale where 100 represents the areas with the best air quality, Gahanna has a score of 50, eight points lower than the national average of 58.
    • Gahanna has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Columbus.
    • Gahanna’s cost of living is 103.2, over three points higher than the national average of 100, with housing costs being the biggest factor. Although the higher cost of living in the city may not directly affect seniors, it could result in higher facility costs.
    • Gahanna’s low crime rates might reassure seniors and their families that Gahanna is one of the safest cities in Ohio. The city has a violent crime rate of 10.3 and a property crime rate of 31.9, both lower than the national averages of 22.7 and 35.4, respectively.
    • Gahanna has a comfortable climate with summer highs of 85 and winter lows of 23. The city receives one more inch of rain and snow each year than the national averages of 39 inches and 26 inches, respectively. Seniors who enjoy watching the seasons change might like living in Gahanna.
    • In Gahanna and throughout Ohio, seniors are not taxed on Social Security benefits. However, they are partially taxed on pensions and fully taxed on retirement savings account withdrawals. Seniors may wish to keep Ohio’s tax laws in mind when preparing their monthly budgets.


    Paying for Assisted Living in Gahanna

    Average Monthly Costs

    Cities in Ohio

    $4,028.00 Dublin
    $4,000.00 US
    $3,711.00 Columbus
    $3,590.00 Gahanna
    $3,565.00 Westerville
    $3,438.00 Worthington

    Assisted Living costs in Gahanna start around $3,590 per month on average, while the nationwide average cost of assisted living is $4,000 per month, according to the latest figures from Genworth’s Cost of Care Survey.

    It’s important to note that assisted living rates in Gahanna and the surrounding suburbs can vary widely based on factors such as location, the level of care needed, apartment size and the types of amenities offered at each community.

    Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Gahanna

    Ohio has a Medicaid program that can benefit Gahanna's low-income seniors. Seniors may also qualify for the Assisted Living Waiver Program which pays for the cost of care. This program does not cover room and board and expects recipients to pay for that with their own resources. Applicants must be Medicaid eligible and may wind up on a waiting list due to the limited number of spots available each year.

    Learn more about these programs, plus who’s eligible, on our Assisted Living in Ohio page.

    More Ways to Pay for Assisted Living

    • Veterans Benefits
    • Life Insurance Policy
    • Long-Term Care Insurance
    • Reverse Mortgage
