What to Consider About Assisted Living in Salem

Founded by Quakers searching for freedom in 1806, Salem, OH, is known for championing freedoms for women during suffrage movement and acting as a major hub of the Underground Railroad. Today, this industrial city has a population of about 112,000, out of which 12 percent are seniors aged 65 and over.

Salem offers seniors the chance to maintain their own freedom via three assisted living facilities located within city limits. Additionally, there are 33 assisted living facilities spread over nearby Perry Township, Green Township, and Salem Township. These assisted living facilities offer seniors assistance with the activities of daily life, general supervision, and safe accommodations. Referred to as Residential Care Facilities by the state, they are regulated and licensed by the Ohio Department of Health.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Salem

  • The city of Salem offers historically rich arts and culture options as two separate parts of the city are designated National Register historic districts. Assisted living facilities may plan monthly outings to attractions such as the Butler Institute of Art, Salem Historical Society Museum, Burchfield Homestead, and Daniel Howell Hise House. 
  • The cost of living in Salem, OH is 77.6, which is well below the national average of 100 and the state average of 87.7, making it a great choice for seniors on a budget.
  • Salem has a seasonal climate with hot summers that average temperatures in the 80s and cold winters that average temperatures in the 20s. Some seniors may find the extreme temperatures uncomfortable for enjoying the outdoors.
  • Ohio does not tax social security checks, which can help seniors afford assisted living, but sales tax is slightly higher than the national average.
  • While you can walk around downtown Salem, there are no mass transit options, so seniors who do not own a motor vehicle have to depend on others or scheduled transportation at an assisted living facility.
  • The Salem area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Salem Regional Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies of illness.
