What to Consider About Assisted Living in Richfield

Richfield, Ohio, was founded in 1809 and named after the rich soil in the area. Today, this small farming village has a winery, a bowling alley, a national park and a beautiful waterfall to keep the area’s 3,648 residents busy. The city has a senior population of 651, and some of those seniors may need to transition into assisted living in the coming years. To support this growing demographic, there are two assisted living facilities in the city proper, with an additional 25 located in nearby communities, such as Cuyahoga Falls, Akron and Cleveland. The Ohio Department of Health licenses these facilities as residential care facilities in Richfield and in all of Ohio.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Richfield

  • Richfield’s cost of living is 108.8, notably higher than the U.S. average of 100, driven primarily by high housing costs in the area at 146.4. Seniors and their families may want to take the high cost of living in the village into consideration before relocating.
  • Ohio fully taxes retirement savings account income, partially taxes both public and private pensions, and does not levy any taxes on Social Security benefits. This could impact how much money Richfield seniors have to put toward their care expenses.
  • Seniors with respiratory issues may find that the air quality in Richfield helps alleviate some of their symptoms. The village has an air quality rating of 67, almost 10 points higher than the U.S. average of 58.
  • The Richfield area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Broadview Heights.
  • The violent crime rate in Richfield is 6.5, less than one-third of the national average of 22.7, and a property crime rate of 19.6, almost half the national average of 35.4. Although these crime rates are exceptionally low, it’s always a good idea to ask about security protocols when visiting prospective facilities.
  • Temperatures in Richfield range between 20 and 83 degrees, which might make the area more appealing to seniors who dislike extreme seasonal temperatures. The village gets 38 inches of rain each year, on par with the national average, and 50 inches of annual snowfall, almost twice the national average of 28 inches. This could make getting around in Richmond difficult for seniors who rely on walkers, canes or other mobility devices.
