    What to Consider About Assisted Living in London

    London, located in Madison County, Ohio, is home to about 10,000 residents and has a large senior community that makes up more than 16% of the population. While the city's property crime rate is a little higher than the national average, its rate of violent crime is notably below regional, state and national medians. This may make it an appealing option for seniors seeking out a safe community for their retirement years. 

    In London, as in the rest of Ohio, assisted living facilities may also be referred to as residential care facilities. There are three assisted living facilities in London proper and one more in the nearby community of West Jefferson. Like all facilities in the state, these facilities are governed by the Ohio Department of Health

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in London

    • Social Security benefits are not taxed in London, and taxpayers age 65 and over can claim a deduction to offset the state tax imposed on other types of retirement income. This may allow seniors to put more money toward the cost of their assisted living expenses.  
    • The London area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Madison Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 
    • Seniors age 60 and over are eligible to receive public transportation services through Madison County Ride, which provides curb-to-curb service throughout the London region. To use this service, seniors must submit an online request for transportation at least 48 hours in advance.
    • London ranks as one of the warmer cities in Ohio, which may appeal to seniors who prefer milder weather. Year-round highs range between 36 degrees and 85 degrees, and the city receives 40 inches of rain and 20 inches of snow annually.   
    • On a scale of 1 to 100, the air quality in London is rated 62, which is slightly higher than the national average of 58. This may make the city a good option for seniors with cardiovascular or respiratory conditions. 
    • London's cost of living is on par with the statewide average and about 10% lower than the national median. This may result in lower assisted living expenses, benefiting seniors with fixed incomes.
