Information About Retirement Communities in Cincinnati
Cincinnati is the third largest city in the state of Ohio, a former boomtown and the gateway to the American West in the years following the Civil War. It has been an industrial giant and an ecological haven for wildlife and visitors at its many riverbanks and beautiful parks, and it’s home to one of the oldest baseball franchises in American history – the Cincinnati Reds. Retirement living in Cincinnati allows for more than just care and comfort. It provides adventure, education, and some of the best healthcare in North America.
Organizations Serving Seniors in Cincinnati
Seniors and their caregivers will find that Cincinnati is a city of many choices. There is no end to where to go and what to do. For the senior citizen, there are numerous senior centers, where one can take a computer class, learn a new art or craft, discuss current events, or attend a weekly dance under the summer stars. Caregivers will find respite as well as they leave their loved one in the care of experienced healthcare aides during a senior center excursion or when they tag along and enjoy the sights as well.
With over 25 senior centers within the city limits, it is best to visit the Cincinnati Recreation Commission, Creative Aging Cincinnati, and the Council on Aging of Southwest Ohio to find the senior centers nearest you and access information on the many additional organizations serving seniors in Cincinnati. Those who experience great satisfaction during their senior years often include “feeling needed” as one of their main reasons for choosing to live where they do. Through one of these many organizations, seniors will also find many volunteer opportunities to keep them busy and challenged, a key to any successful life no matter the stage.
Cincinnati Senior-Friendly Activities
Southeastern Ohio and northern Kentucky are full of historical, artistic, ecological, and shopping opportunities. Many Cincinnati retirement living homes provide transportation to and from these events and, often, create adventures tailored exclusively for the retirees and their caregivers. If railroad history interests you, visit the LM&M (Lebanon, Mason, and Monroe County) Railroad and take a ride on a 1930’s historical engine and explore the gift shop and nearby museum. Or, if you prefer water recreation, consider a steamboat down the mighty Mississippi on the American Queen, a Cincinnati to St. Louis rendezvous. There is always the option of a quiet picnic on the river’s edge, or an afternoon at one of the city’s many world renowned museums and art organizations.
Cincinnati Medical Facilities
Along with being one of the epicenters of American history, having more art venues than most cities twice its size, and offering endless opportunities for recreation and relaxation, Cincinnati offers several state-of-the-art medical and health institutions. Veterans can find all the health services they need at the Cincinnati VA Medical Center, and others can find the highest quality care at area hospitals like Good Samaritan, The Christ, Mercy Health-Western Hills, and Anderson hospitals. Those needing it can find a plethora of advanced healthcare and specialty services within the city as well. Additionally, most Cincinnati retirement living homes have arrangements with area hospitals and rehabilitation centers and will organize stays and transportation as guests require it.
