What to Consider About Assisted Living in Mason

The Ohio Department of Health regulates assisted living communities. This department provides regulations and licensing for assisted living facilities as well as resources for facilities and residents. It also handles complaint services and maintains a list of licensed communities. The goal is to keep seniors safe and ensure they receive quality care.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Mason

 

  • Mason is a relatively safe city with low crime rates. Both violent and property crime fall below the national average. On a 100-point scale, Mason's violent crime rate stands at 8.5, compared to the U.S. average of 22.7. The city's property crime rate is 20.1, which is also lower than the national average of 35.4.
  • Mason's cost of living is a little on the high side. Compared to the national average of 100 on a 100-point index, Mason's rating is 105.3. However, some expense categories fall below the U.S. average, including utilities and transportation. Seniors can help balance their budgets by applying for assistance programs and taking advantage of meal services designed for older adults.
  • Health care is one of Mason's least expensive categories. In fact, the health cost index places Mason at 89.4 on a 100-point scale. This means that Mason's residents pay about 10.6% less for health care than the average U.S. resident.
  • Health care is easy to access in Mason. While the city lacks a hospital, it has the Christ Hospital Physicians Outpatient Center for primary care, oncology appointments, sleep medicine and gynecology. West Chester Hospital is less than four miles away for more specialized care, including a Level III trauma center and a primary stroke center. Several of Cincinnati's hospitals are also within easy driving distance from Mason.
  • Mason's climate is something of a mixed bag. Summers are warm, with July highs averaging 85 degrees, yet the summer comfort index rates 8.6 on a 10-point scale. Winters rate lower at 5.3 due to cold temperatures and snow. The city's overall comfort index is 7.2, which is just above the national average of 7.
  • Ohio offers tax breaks for seniors. The state does not tax Social Security, for example, and seniors may have the opportunity to deduct some health care expenses. Tax credits may also be available. Seniors should talk to their tax preparers or accountants for more information.
