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.
