What to Consider About Assisted Living in Willoughby

In Willoughby, assisted living facilities are officially called residential care facilities, and they comply with minimum standards set by the Ohio Department of Health. This department promotes a high standard of care through rigorous licensing processes and conducts regular inspections to ensure compliance with state rules related to staffing, maintenance and care planning.  

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Willoughby

 

  • Willoughby’s overall cost of living is in line with the state average but about 16% lower than the national norm, which may appeal to seniors with limited financial resources. While miscellaneous costs such as restaurant meals and entertainment trend about 10% higher here than in a typical U.S. city, low utility and real estate costs may promote competitive assisted living costs.
  • Crime, especially violent offenses, is relatively rare in Willoughby and may support an environment many retirees are seeking. On a 100-point index that assigns lower scores to communities with less crime, Willoughby scores 9.6 for violent criminal activity and 31.4 for property-related incidents. This is low compared to the respective national norms of 22.7 and 35.4.
  • Willoughby’s weather is relatively cool throughout the year, ranging from summer daytime temperatures of 80 degrees to winter nighttime lows of 21 degrees. While July is often muggy, humidity levels are low throughout the rest of the year, and the city gets about 39 inches of rain and 68 inches of snow. Assisted living facilities provide indoor and outdoor activities throughout the year, letting residents enjoy favorable weather in the summer and avoid boredom in the winter.
  • Willoughby is home to UH Lake West Medical Center, an award-winning hospital nationally recognized for its excellence in pulmonary care, and there are 19 more major medical facilities within 20 miles of the city center. Health care costs trend about 15% lower than national norms, which may make care accessible to those managing chronic conditions.
  • The air quality in Lake County, where Willoughby is located, is moderate, which may be a consideration for those with respiratory or cardiovascular conditions. The American Lung Association gives the city an F for ozone pollution levels but high marks for 24-hour and annual particle pollution.
  • Seniors in Ohio don’t pay state income taxes on their Social Security benefits, and many are eligible to claim credits to minimize what they pay on income from pensions and retirement accounts. This can leave more money in the bank to cover assisted living expenses in Willoughby.
