What to Consider About Assisted Living in Marietta

Marietta is located right along the Ohio River and is the county seat of Washington County, Ohio. The area has plenty of options for seniors interested in assisted living facilities (ALFs). In fact, there are two in Marietta and another seven in the surrounding area. In Marietta, and the rest of Ohio, ALFs — also known as residential care facilities (RCFs) — are regulated by the Ohio Department of Health (ODH). They are defined as "accommodations for seventeen or more unrelated individuals" who are "dependent on the services of others by reason of age or physical or mental impairment."

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Marietta

  • The cost of living in Marietta is 13 percent lower than the national average, and 4 percent lower than the state of Ohio as a whole. This means seniors can get more on a fixed income, particularly with the low costs of utilities and health care.

  • The Marietta area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Marietta Memorial Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Senior residents of Marietta can enjoy getting to experience all four seasons, with summer highs in the 80s and winter temperatures averaging in the 40s. 

  • Crime rates in Marietta are approximately 15 percent higher than the state average, which could be a concern for senior residents. However, much of this is due to property crime which isn't a big problem for those living in an assisted living community.

  • The American Lung Association gives Marietta a C rating, which could be problematic for seniors with respiratory issues in the warmer, humid months.

  • Marietta is home to Marietta College, a private liberal arts school, which offers many arts and culture opportunities for seniors. On-campus arts shows and events are often free or offered at a reduced cost for seniors.
