What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lorain

Lorain was named after Lorraine, France, and was settled in 1807. The city’s most famous resident is Toni Morrison, a Nobel Prize-winning author. Its current population is about 64,000. Of these residents, 15.7% are seniors. If these seniors find themselves in need of help with daily tasks, there are eight assisted living facilities in the area. 

Lorain’s assisted living facilities, like those throughout the state, are licensed to provide supervision and personal care to three or more people. They are regulated by the Ohio Department of Health’s Bureau of Regulatory Operations.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lorain

  • At 25.6% lower than the national average, the cost of living in Lorain is low. In this city, housing costs are 64.9% below the U.S. norm, but seniors will also notice savings in other areas. Compared to national average prices, healthcare, transportation, utilities and groceries are more affordable. These savings can help seniors afford assisted living fees.
  • The city has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Cleveland.
  • Lorain County Transit connects Lorain with the nearby communities of Sheffield and Elyria. Four bus routes are available Monday through Friday. Seniors pay half-price fares, which makes getting around the city affordable.
  • Seniors who enjoy outdoor activities will find plenty to do in Lorain. To explore over five miles of paved trails, seniors can visit the Black River Reservation. Tram tours are available for seniors who can’t walk the trails. For a fun day at the beach, seniors can visit Century Park. At the Lorain Public Fishing Pier, seniors can fish in Lake Erie and the Black River. 
  • Seniors who retire in Lorain don’t need to pay tax on their Social Security benefits, and these tax savings may help seniors budget for assisted living services. However, other types of retirement income, including pensions, IRAs and 401(k)s, are subject to state taxes. 
  • For seniors who enjoy cross country skiing, skating and other winter sports, Lorain’s climate may be ideal. Winter lows are in the teens, and on average, 51 inches of snow falls per year. This is significantly more than the U.S. average of 28 inches.
