    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."

    • 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.
