Ohio Assisted Living Communities
WHAT IS ASSISTED LIVING? Assisted living is often viewed as the best of both worlds. Residents have as much independence as they want with the knowledge that personal care and support services are available if they need them. Assisted living communities are designed to provide residents with assistance with basic ADLs (activities of daily living) such as bathing, grooming, dressing, and more. Some states also allow assisted living to offer medication assistance and/or reminders. Assisted living communities are different from nursing homes in various ways. For one, assisted living facilities do not offer complex medical services. Assisted living communities range from a stand alone residence to being one level of care in a CCRC (continuing care retirement community). Assisted Living facilities and communities offer a more home-like atmosphere with apartment styles that typically include studio and one bedroom models. Kitchenettes usually feature a small refrigerator and other small appliances.

Ohio is a Midwestern state of the US and part of the Great Lakes region. It has long been a cultural and geographical crossroads. Ohio is better known for its cold winters and less than desirable industrial areas than it is for its retirement hot spots. However, the state's low cost of living, friendly Midwestern residents, and Great Lakes recreation areas deserve a second look.
The Ohio River, which runs along the south side of the state, is a favorite for canoeing and kayaking. Miles of bike trails and paved streets roll through beautiful plains and rolling hills. The state is bordered by Lake Erie, one of the Midwest's top tourist attractions and a popular spot for boating and fishing.
