What to Consider About Assisted Living in Worthington

All assisted living facilities in Worthington follow the Ohio Department of Health’s rules for the scope of care they must provide, housing and move-in and move-out procedures. The department enforces rules through a strict initial and annual licensing process and by investigating complaints. To submit a complaint, individuals may call (800) 342-0553 or submit an online complaint form.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Worthington

 

  • Ohio’s retiree-friendly income tax policies may be beneficial to assisted living residents in Worthington, letting them keep more money in the bank to cover expenses. In Ohio, seniors don’t pay state income taxes on their Social Security benefits, and they may claim small credits to reduce what they owe on other forms of retirement income.
  • Worthington doesn’t have a hospital. However, its proximity to Columbus gives seniors access to facilities such as Riverside Methodist Hospital, a 1,059-bed teaching hospital that offers state-of-the-art cancer care and cardiovascular services, and Ohio State University Hospital, a 900-bed hospital that has a Level I Trauma Center.
  • Worthington is a member of the AARP Age-Friendly Network, a designation that indicates its leaders have purposefully taken steps to create a safe and welcoming environment for seniors. The city ranks in the top half of communities nationwide for livability based on factors such as the low preventable hospitalization rate and proximity to grocery stores, parks and libraries.
  • Worthington’s air quality is decent, which may be beneficial to seniors managing heart or lung conditions. The American Lung Association records an average of two high ozone days and one high particle day annually, earning the region a B in both pollution categories.
  • Worthington has long, warm summers, with average daytime temperatures falling between 74 and 84 degrees Fahrenheit, making the city a favorable destination for retirees who enjoy spending time outdoors. While winters are chilly, with high temperatures between 35 and 45 degrees Fahrenheit, assisted living facilities host indoor activities and programs to help residents stay active year-round.
  • Crime, particularly violent crime, is uncommon in Worthington, which may appeal to those considering local long-term care options. On a 100-point index, the city scores 9.2 for violent crime and 30.7 for property-related offenses, compared to the national respective norms of 22.7 and 35.4.
  • On a 100-point index based on national living costs, Worthington scores 91.4. Although this is a little higher than the state score of 82.7, it indicates a high overall degree of affordability, which may benefit those seeking long-term care on a budget.
