    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Zanesville

    Zanesville, OH, was briefly the capital of Ohio, from 1810 to 1812, when the national Democratic-Republican Party was trying to monopolize power in the new state. The capital shifted to Columbus in 1812 as a compromise. Afterwards, Zanesville remained a well-known city - but for a different reason: it's prolific pottery industry. 

    Today the city of Zanesville is home to eight assisted living communities licensed through the Ohio Department of Health’s Office of Health Assurance and Licensing. The department encourages staff at Ohio's assisted living communities to help seniors live active, independent lifestyles by helping them with normal activities of daily living (ADLs), such as grooming and taking medication.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Zanesville

    • Weather in Zanesville is typical for southeastern Ohio. Summer highs here get up to 84 degrees Fahrenheit, while January lows dip to 20 degrees Fahrenheit. Cold, snowy winters can make outdoor activity difficult for seniors with respiratory conditions, such as COPD.

    • The cost of living in Zanesville is just a little lower than typical for the United States. Seniors who buy their own groceries may pay up to 4 percent less here than elsewhere in the nation, while the cost of health care is around 1 percent lower, which helps seniors on fixed incomes whose insurance is limited.

    • Ohio's state income tax takes from 0.495 to 4.997 percent out of the paychecks of most wage earners, and local taxes can rise as high as 3 percent of wages earned. These taxes don't affect seniors' SSI, and many forms of retirement income are likewise exempt. Seniors who do their own shopping or pay for their own gas may notice a 6.5 to 8 percent sales tax.
    • Crime in Zanesville is about one-third higher than the national average in most categories. The property crime is relatively high, but down significantly from the city's 2011 highs.

    • South East Area Transit (SEAT) operates a multi-city transit network in Zanesville that reaches almost to the border of West Virginia. Buses of this service are ADA-compliant, and seniors with valid transit ID qualify for a discount at the time of boarding.

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