Our goal for this list was to shorten your search to the top 15 rated communities. If you don’t see your city or town listed below, check out our senior living directory for more choices, or contact us for a senior living advisor to help you along the way.

Tip for Paying for Ohio Senior Living: Life Insurance Settlement Funding
Paying for senior living can be challenging. Many communities average over $2,000 per month, but an option does exist for anyone that has a life insurance policy. Life Settlement companies will give you cash now in exchange for naming them the as the party that receives the death benefit. It’s a popular option for aging adults with life insurance policies who don’t want to burden their children with senior living and care expenses.

Ranking The Best Senior Living Facilities in Ohio

The Buckeye state has plenty of senior living options. We read thousands of reviews on Facebook, Google and compared them with our own user ratings and feedback. Our team also researched the Ohio Dept. of Health for major complaints and violations that would disqualify a community from this list.

On average, an assisted living community in Ohio costs roughly $2,300 per month. There are several factors that affects price, cost of living based on location, level of care, and services, amenities offered by the community. Independent living will be cheaper since these communities don’t offer care. Memory care and skilled nursing facilities can be thousands of dollars more a month, but have highly skilled and trained nurses and staff that know how to care for the most vulnerable elderly residents.

seasons retirement community cincinnati oh

What residents and loved ones have to say about Seasons Retirement Community:

My family moved my mother into The Seasons a week ago. We worked with Molly and she couldn’t have been anymore helpful! We met with her several times and she answered all of our questions and concerns. If I had a question I could text her and she got right back to me. She made this transition for my mother so much easier than we had ever imagined! She even checked up on my mother a few days into her move and texted me that she was doing well! I would highly recommend her to anyone who was looking for a place for their parents. Thanks for everything Molly!!

the ohio masonic home springfield oh

What residents and loved ones have to say about The Ohio Masonic Home:

A heartfelt thank-you to the wonderful staff at WRMC Medina OH! When my parents, Jack and Helen, first moved into WRMC Independent Living apartment ten years ago, they were active, healthy eighty-year olds enjoying the many programs and outings that were offered by WRMC. They looked forward to concerts, day trips and even casino outings with other residents as arranged by the staff. They enjoyed the food, the holiday events and their ongoing friendship with another couple who had previously moved there. As my mothers health began to fail, we were thankful that she could still thrive in that environment.

My sister-in-law has been a resident for about six weeks at this fabulous facility.

What residents and loved ones have to say about Forest Hills Place:

My mother moved to Forest Hills Place a week ago. The staff has been superb from the moment they arrived at my parents house for the assessment – kind, attentive, patient, compassionate and knowledgeable. Mom loves the staff and thinks they are lovely people. The place is also lovely, with light bright apartments and extensive landscaping. It has a good energy, with lots of activities – Mom has already started going to their daily exercise class! The family is relieved to have found such a wonderful place for Mom. I can not highly enough recommend them

chesterwood village west chester oh

What residents and loved ones have to say about Chesterwood Village:

My wife was admitted to Chesterwood recovering from a hemmoraghic stroke. The staff has made us feel like family. The care and concern they have shown goes above and beyond what I would have expected from a rehab facility. I would definitely recommend them to anyone seeking rehabilitation services. I have to update my thoughts about Chestwoods advanced therapy center. The nursing staff doesnt follow requests from the therapy department. Numerous times therapy has had to get my wife up, dressed and out of bed. This took the entire time of 45 minutes allotted to provide therapy for her to recover from a hemmoraghic stroke. She also received more therapy time per day from TriHealth on Dana. Instead of progressing to the point of being able to come home, she has declined in her ability to function. I have had her transferred to Encompass at Drake who have guaranteed me that they will be able to turn her around and have her back to and beyond the ability level she was at TriHealth.

Vitalia Senior Residences of Solon OH

What residents and loved ones have to say about Vitalia Senior Residences of Solon:

What an incredible community!!! I’m SO happy that my mom chose to move to Vitalia!!! The staff, under Debbie’s amazing direction, is simply top notch! Everyone is so kind, caring and compassionate. The residents bring a wealth of life experiences, and love to share with each other (safely, of course!) during meals and small group gatherings. Everyone is welcome and even the staffs t-shirts spread words of kindness, inclusion, diversity and warmth! There are so many activities from which to choose…. the gym – as my mom calls it (exercise classes, PT & OT sessions), the pool, the outdoor courtyard, movie theater, etc. My mom loves to play the piano in the lovely main lobby. Shes not been this happy in years!!! The people here are simply amazing!!! Debbie, Tammy, Brandon, Shai, Katie, Sam, Tom, Peter, Maricelo, and the list goes on….. I apologize if I missed someone!!! I’m SO appreciative for the care my mom is receiving. A few kinks are still being worked out, but that happens with every new organization. Thank you ALL!!!

I was recently recalling my mothers final days with the anniversary of her passing. I am so appreciative for the excellent care she received from the staff at O’Neil Healthcare Bradley Bay. My hat is off to the Administrator, Candy, for always being available to help us through such a difficult time. Everyone, should receive the love and support provided not only to my mother, but her family as well.

What residents and loved ones have to say about Tapestry Senior Living Wickliffe:

We moved my father into Tapestry one year ago, and cant say enough good things about this facility. For those who review based on one visit, I urge you to not pass judgment. Despite the pandemic, Tapestry has kept all its resident safe and as engaged as possible. They have been flexible and creative, and have communicated well with families. Whenever we have had the slightest issue or question, we have gotten a quick response and a resolution of the matter. The staff has been consistent, as opposed to the constant turnover at many assisted living facilities, so my father knows and trusts his caregivers. I would highly recommend Tapestry to anyone.
