What to Consider About Assisted Living in Vermilion

Vermilion, Ohio is located on the southern shore of Lake Erie, and was once known as the “Village of Lake Captains," due to the many beautifully maintained captain's homes in the historic district. An estimated 23 percent of the city's population of 10,500 is aged over 65, and there are two assisted living facilities for them in Vermilion, with another seven in communities nearby, including Oberlin, Amherst and Lorain.

Assisted living facilities in Vermilion are monitored by the Ohio Department of Health, which offers different licenses based on the care offered to residents and the number of people who can be accommodated in a facility.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Vermilion

  • The Vermilion area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Southwest General Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

  • Seniors looking for arts and culture will find plenty on offer at the Arts Guild, which has rotating exhibits and offers workshops to residents. Vermilion also has a number of cultural events, including Concerts in the Park, offering outdoor performances during the summer.

  • Public transit in Vermilion is provided by the Sandusky Transit System. Seniors can access a dial-a-ride shared transport system and paratransit is also available for eligible riders.

  • The cost of living in Vermilion is almost 8 percent less than the national average. However, this is mostly due to the low cost of housing. Seniors will find that many expenses, including groceries and health care, are around 9 percent more expensive than the U.S. average.
