What to Consider About Assisted Living in Macedonia

Assisted living facilities in Macedonia are licensed and overseen by the Bureau of Regulatory Operations, a division of the Ohio Department of Health. The Bureau conducts unannounced inspections every 9-15 months to ensure facilities are complying with the state’s assisted living rules and regulations.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Macedonia

  • Seniors in Macedonia don’t need to pay state income tax on any Social Security retirement benefits. Although income from pensions and retirement accounts is taxed, there are credits available to taxpayers over 65, which can help seniors balance their budgets. Sales taxes are high in the state, but exemptions for most groceries, prescription drugs and newspapers help limit their impact on seniors.
  • While the overall cost of living in Macedonia is high when compared to the state average, it’s still almost 8% lower than the national average. Costs for healthcare and transportation are significantly lower than the U.S. averages, which can help seniors save money for other retirement expenses. 
  • Summit County is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities. This means the county, including Macedonia, is actively working towards becoming a great place to live for people of all ages. 
  • The overall crime rate in Macedonia is 22 crimes per 1,000 residents. Although the property crime rate is slightly higher than the Ohio average, violent crimes in the city are significantly lower, at only 0.25 crimes per 1,000 residents. 
  • Summit County received passing grades for both ozone and particle pollution from the State of the Air report. This may help the health of seniors in Macedonia who live with lung conditions.
  • Summers are considered very comfortable in Macedonia, with highs in July of around 82 degrees. In January the low temperature averages 20, and the city experiences around 71 inches of snow each year, which may appeal to seniors who enjoy white winters.
