What to Consider About Assisted Living in Middletown
Middletown is located in southwestern Ohio, about halfway between Cincinnati and Dayton. When the city was founded in 1802, its location may have been the inspiration for its name. Today, the city is home to about 48,860 people. Just over 15% of these residents are seniors, and some of them may need help with activities of daily living. These seniors can turn to any of the eight assisted living facilities in the Middletown area.
Middletown’s assisted living facilities, like those throughout the state, are regulated by the Ohio Department of Health. They provide care and supervision to three or more seniors.
Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Middletown
- The American Lung Association (ALA) ranks the Cincinnati-Wilmington-Maysville metropolitan area as the country’s 13th most polluted city by year-round particle pollution. The ALA warns that this type of pollution can make asthma, COPD and other respiratory conditions worse, so seniors with these health issues may prefer to retire elsewhere.
- Seniors may notice their retirement funds stretch further in Middletown. Thanks in large part to low housing costs, the city’s overall cost of living is 19.3% lower than the nationwide average. In Middletown, healthcare costs are 14.3% lower than the U.S. norm, which may also appeal to seniors.
Ohio’s tax policies may also appeal to seniors. The state doesn’t tax Social Security benefits, and it offers four tax credits that eligible retirees can use to lower their tax burdens. In addition, Middletown exempts pension and retirement income from its city income tax.
Middletown Transit Service is a full-service transit system that connects seniors to destinations throughout the city. There are four fixed-route bus lines, and discounted fares are available for seniors. The city also operates a curb-to-curb, wheelchair-accessible bus for eligible residents.
- The Middletown area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Atrium Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
- Middletown has one of the highest crime rates in the country. The city’s residents have a one in 15 chance of becoming a victim of a property or violent crime. Seniors who retire here may choose to live in an assisted living facility with 24-hour security.
