Perrysburg is a suburban city on the south shores of the Maumee River, about 15 minutes from downtown Toledo. The 2020 census revealed that 14.5% of its 25,000 residents are aged 65 and older and that the population grew by almost 22% in the previous 10 years, suggesting Perrysburg is becoming increasingly popular. For seniors, the city’s appeal will almost certainly include the free curb-to-curb transportation provided by the local transit authority, the below-average cost of living and exceptionally low levels of crime. The city’s downtown area may also be a draw due to its plethora of boutique stores and diverse dining options.

Assisted living facilities offer a semi-independent lifestyle for seniors no longer able to handle some everyday tasks at home, such as cooking meals. They’re staffed by caregivers who ensure seniors live in clean and comfortable accommodation, get healthy meals three times daily and get plenty of opportunities to socialize with other residents. The average monthly fee in Perrysburg is $4,779, which is above the state average of $4,350.

This guide considers the pros and cons of living in Perrysburg, lists some useful resources and compares different senior living costs in the region.

What to Consider About Assisted Living in Perrysburg

The Ohio Department of Health is responsible for monitoring, inspecting and licensing residential care facilities in the state. It ensures licensed care facilities fulfill the conditions of their licenses and revokes them from those who consistently fail to comply.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Perrysburg

  • According to Sperling’s Best Places, Perrysburg has an average cost of living index of 90.8, which, although above the state average of 82.6, is below the national mean of 100. The data also shows health and transportation costs in Perrysburg are typically lower than the averages for Ohio and the U.S.
  • Perrysburg’s seniors enjoy four distinct seasons, with winter bringing temperatures of around 20 degrees and about 29 inches of snowfall, and summer seeing the dial regularly at a pleasantly warm 85 degrees. Rainfall is usually about 3 inches less than the national average of 38, with about 129 days with some type of precipitation.
  • Although the city’s water quality level is measured at 20/100, it’s perfectly safe and drinkable. Air quality is better than average, at 66/100, and may improve as the city’s contributions to the EPA’s superfund program — which focuses on cleaning up contaminated land — are among the most effective in the country.
  • Crime statistics for Perrysburg are fairly good. Data collected by Neighborhood Scout reveals the likelihood of becoming a victim of property crime in the city is 1 in 176 — a significant drop when compared to the state average of 1 in 49. Figures for violent crime are even more favorable, with the chance being 1 in 7,209 compared to 1 in 341. To add more perspective, Ohio’s mean figures are themselves below the national averages.
  • Mercy Health-Perrysburg Hospital is the primary medical facility within city limits, while on the opposite shore of the Maumee River there’s McLaren St. Luke’s Hospital. Perrysburg’s seniors are also within 20 minutes of the many hospitals throughout Toledo, while closer to home there are a significant number of medical professionals registered to treat Medicare beneficiaries.
  • Call-A-Ride is a curb-to-curb shared-ride service operated by TARTA, the transit authority for the Greater Toledo area. The service operates every day, except Sunday, and as of 2021, it is free of charge.
