What to Consider About Assisted Living in Granville

In Granville, assisted living facilities are officially called residential care facilities, and they’re licensed through the Ohio Department of Health. This department defines the scope of services these facilities must provide, and it sets minimum requirements for housing, care planning and meal services. It monitors compliance with these rules through an annual licensing process and regular site inspections. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Granville

 

  • Ohio taxes retirement income at rates of up to 3.99%, although seniors whose annual income is below $25,000 don’t pay taxes at the state level. Fortunately, Social Security benefits are entirely exempt from taxation, and credits are available to seniors who draw income from public or private pensions, which may help some individuals pay for assisted living in Granville.
  • Granville doesn’t have a local hospital, but several local assisted living facilities have on-call physicians who provide telemedicine services or on-site check-ups to ensure access to routine care. Additionally, several high-quality hospitals are within easy driving distance, including Licking Memorial Hospital in Newark and Mount Carmel New Albany Surgical Hospital in New Albany.
  • Granville residents experience long, warm summers and very cold winters, and skies are partly cloudy throughout the year. Average winter lows are around 20 degrees Fahrenheit, and summer highs are typically around 83 degrees Fahrenheit, although extreme temperatures may range from 3 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Assisted living facilities generally host indoor and outdoor activities throughout the year, helping residents stay active regardless of the season.
  • Crime is very uncommon in Granville, making the city an attractive retirement destination for active seniors. On a 100-point index that gives lower ratings to cities with less illegal activity, Granville scores 5.5 for violent crime and 16.7 for property crime. These scores are considerably lower than the respective national norms of 22.7 and 35.4.
  • Granville’s overall cost of living is high compared to what’s typical for the state, but it’s considerably lower than the national average. On a 100-point scale based on national living costs, the city scores 90.4, a few points higher than Ohio’s rating of 82.7. While this may be a consideration for seniors relocating to Granville from elsewhere in the state, the city is still among the more budget-friendly places in the nation for retirement.
