What to Consider About Assisted Living in Portsmouth

Portsmouth, which sits between the Ohio River and Scioto River, is a historic city with over 35 of its buildings listed in the National Register of Historic Places. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the city has a population of 20,340, 16.5% of which are people age 65 and older. To accommodate seniors who need assistance with activities of daily living, like bathing, transferring and incontinence care, they have two assisted living facilities. These facilities are licensed and regulated by the Bureau of Regulatory Operations, a division of the Ohio Department of Health.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Portsmouth

  • The Portsmouth area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Southern Ohio Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Portsmouth is full of art and cultural exhibits for seniors to enjoy. Seniors can spend their day admiring the Portsmouth Floodwall Mural, learn interesting historical facts at the Southern Ohio Museum or catch a play at the Vern Riffe Center for the Arts.
  • Social security income is exempt from all state taxes in the state of Ohio. On the other hand, pensions and other retirement accounts are taxed as regular income, but seniors may be eligible for credits to help lower the amount they might have to pay. 
  • The cost of living in Portsmouth is 29.3% lower than the national average, which may give seniors and their families more room to budget for assisted living expenses. 
  • Portsmouth has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Area Agency on Aging District 7, an organization that offers numerous helpful programs and resources for seniors in hopes of bettering health and overall well-being, as well as one senior center.
  • Seniors who don't mind cold weather will enjoy Portsmouth, as it can get really chilly, with temperatures averaging as low as 22 degrees in winter months and snowfall averaging around 12 inches yearly. On the other hand, it can get decently warm during the summer when temperatures average around 85 degrees.
