What to Consider About Memory Care in Akron

The Ohio Department of Health oversees residential care facilities in Akron and throughout the state. The specific entity responsible for licensing and regulation of such facilities is the DOH’s Bureau of Regulatory Operations. Under DOH policy, each residential care facility in the state receives a minimum of one unannounced, comprehensive inspection every 15 months.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Akron

  • Akron is a good choice for seniors living on a budget. On a scale where 100 is the U.S. average, Akron’s overall cost of living is just 69.5. General health costs rate 83.1 on that same scale, with the cost of food below average at well at 93.5.
  • Seniors with significant retirement income may feel more of a yearly tax pinch here than elsewhere, as Akron’s income tax rate of 5.6% is a point above the national average of 4.6%. However, in-store total prices are a bit lower than average; the sales tax rate here is 6.75%, slightly under the national average of 7.3%.
  • Akron tends to be less sunny than most U.S. cities, averaging only 164 sunny days per year against the national average of 205. That’s offset by its pleasantly mild summers, with the hottest month of the year, July, seeing average highs of just 83.
  • As of 2022, Akron’s government works with AARP to improve quality of life for area seniors as part of the city’s application to AARP’s Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities. The program puts an emphasis on promoting civic and social participation, ensuring communities are walkable and providing seniors with access to convenient health services.
  • Crime rates are above national averages in Akron. The city’s violent crime rates 35.5 on a 1-100 scale, and its property crime rates 61.9; the associated national rates are 22.7 and 35.4, respectively. Most long-term care communities have physical and electronic security measures that make crime less of a concern for their residents.

Paying for Memory Care in Akron

No data source specifically tracks monthly costs for memory care, but such care generally costs 20%-30% more than assisted living in most cities. Following that data, we’ve estimated memory care costs by adding 25% to the assisted living costs noted by the yearly Genworth Cost of Care Survey.
