What to Consider About Assisted Living in Poland
Located a few miles southwest of Youngstown, Ohio, Poland is a small town with a population under 3,000, yet 17 percent of residents are over the age of 65. There are 37 assisted living communities in the Poland area, and five of the communities reside within the city limits to support seniors in need of help with daily tasks such as housekeeping and grooming.
In Poland and the rest of Ohio, the Department of Health provides licenses and oversight to assisted living communities and refers to them as Residential Care Facilities (RCFs).
Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Poland
- Poland is a safe community compared to both the Ohio and national crime rate averages. The violent crime rate here is 93 percent lower than the national average, and property crime rates are 77 percent lower, so seniors will likely feel safe walking in town.
- The WRTA, a public bus service, runs Monday through Saturday with 21 fixed routes in Poland, providing seniors safe transportation around the area.
- For seniors, money stretches a little further due to Ohio state tax laws. The state doesn't tax Social Security retirement benefits, and it gives senior tax credits on pensions and retirement savings accounts, including IRAs and 401(k)s.
- Poland does have cold winters with temperatures in the high teens to mid-thirties but doesn't see a lot of snow. However, moderate temperatures in the spring, summer and fall make it a great location for seniors who enjoy spending time outside.
- The cost of living in Poland is two percent lower than the rest of Ohio and 16 percent lower than the national average, making it an affordable option for seniors.
- Poland has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Youngstown, Mercy Health — St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital.
