Reviews of Assisted Living Facilities in Stark County



March 9, 2024

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

This is an affordable facility, and my mother is getting very good care from the aids in her villa. They are friendly and helpful, and provide good meals and food for the residents. The administration/management, however, is very poor about getting information to the family of residents. It is sometimes difficult to know who to contact because of turnover in the past year or two.

My Dad has been very lonely. He was hesitant about moving to an assisted living. This is the best thing he’s ever done. These people really do care and it is apparent. He considers them family which makes things a lot easier on us. He loves the food, fun and friends he’s made. This gives me peace of mind.

I visited this facility

We toured The Landing of Canton Assisted Living & Memory Care for my mother-in-law. It was really a good tour, and we liked it a lot. Stacy and Diana, the people who gave us the tour, were absolutely pleasant. The facility and the rooms are beautiful. We liked everything about it. The drawback is that they don't take Medicaid, so it is private pay. It was great; they were wonderful there. They offer a one-bedroom, a deluxe one-bedroom, and a studio, and they were all really pretty. They have arts and crafts, they have movies, they do some gardening, and they are able to bake cookies with the help of the employees. They have outings, and they have things planned for outings. They are kind of different in that they don't look like a nursing home; it looks more like a restaurant-type of setting, so that is a nice feature. They did not offer us a meal, but they did send us a container of cookies that they had baked.

I visited this facility

We went to the campus of Windsor Medical Center. We only got in the door and into the conference room and met with their admissions directors. She had some videos taken with her iPhone to show us and was able to project them on a large screen TV that was available. Although we didn't see the actual units that were available, we got to see them on a video in person, and it was a pretty decent experience. They went through all the pre-screening questions, like wear your masks, social distancing, and all the other protocols that would be expected were in place. The main reason we selected them for my mom was they have a full skilled nursing facility, so there's more continuity of care. If and when she needs to spend some time in a skilled nursing facility, she could be basically moved back and forth without having to truly move her to another facility and then bring her back when she's released. It seemed to be a very nice facility with a very comparable price. They were possibly less expensive than some of the ones that have a lot of the individual ala carte services. They have some add-on services, but it wasn't six layers. It was just a couple of things that might apply to her, certainly med pass would be one. I had also asked them to only show us the room options that they had available at that time, because they had four or five different options. We saw a large studio, a 1-bedroom, a medium 1-bedroom, and a large bedroom. Everything was updated, nice, very clean looking, and it sounds like that they've replaced all the carpeting. They still have their salon open, too, and from a standpoint of being a female going in, we could opt for how frequently, if at all, she would want to go to a beauty shop. They have activities going on, but they're just more with social distancing at this point. They normally do a social hour with snacks, as well as actual alcoholic drinks once a week. Once they get through their second round of COVID vaccine, which they expect to have done in February, then that's something they would immediately be restarting. Although the alcohol for my mom makes no difference, the social act would be nice. It's just that, everything that I saw was a video, and there was one other place where I could go on and physically pick up floor plans in additon to being able to see videos. It would probably be a 5 if it weren't for COVID, but I give them a 4 for now because they did the best of anybody that we talked to.

My mom went to Allay Senior Care. It's an Alzheimer's unit. She is actually doing fine. The staff are mostly helpful. We're not allowed to go in and see her. It is not great right now, but it is what it is. They're doing lots of social activities inside, but nobody is allowed to come in. They have an ice cream social and they do lots of artsy stuff with her. I don't really know very much other than that because we're not allowed to come in. The food is good. It's bland, but it's good for them. The cleanliness is all good. Everything is good.

Our experience here has been fantastic. It is excellent. They definitely exceeded all expectations. They have activities for the tenants all the time. It has been fantastic for my mom. It has been interactive, it has been very good, and it has lifted her spirit. The food is really great. She has dinner every night. They offer all meals, but she just eats dinner. The staff members are great. They're excellent. They are very friendly, very engaging, and very helpful. Everybody is proactive.

I visited this facility

It was very clean and decorated nicely. I liked the dining room and the setting. We were shown where the laundry facilities were. They told us about the exercise room, the entertainment, the games, and activities. They had a bus that goes to different places and out to dinner. Dinner was included with the rent; breakfast or lunch was extra. You had a kitchenette in your room where you could prepare your own meals. I was there for a short time, and I was very impressed with it.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Stark County

Medicaid in Ohio

The federal- and state-funded Medicaid program was established in 1965 to guarantee essential health care services to low-income Americans of all ages. In Ohio, the Department of Medicaid administers the program in accordance with federal laws and regulations. Seniors over age 64 are eligible for an Ohio Medicaid managed care plan that offers a range of benefits, including inpatient/outpatient hospital services, doctors visits, preventive care, prescriptions and transportation. To qualify for regular Medicaid coverage, Stark County seniors must be U.S. citizens or legal residents with a monthly income below $771 ($1,157 for couples) and less than $2,000 in assets ($3,000 per couple). Medicaid-eligible residents with monthly incomes below $2,313 qualify for long-term care in a nursing home as an entitlement. For more information about Ohio Medicaid or to apply, contact the Medicaid Consumer Hotline at (800) 324-8680 or visit Ohio Benefits. Ohio Medicaid Assisted Living Waiver Ohio Medicaid offers an assisted living waiver program to preserve the independence of elderly residents and delay or prevent nursing home placement. The waiver covers the cost of services such as personal care, housekeeping, laundry, social and recreational programs, on-site response, nursing care and meals in certified, licensed residential care facilities for seniors who:

  • Need assistance with bathing, toileting, grooming, dressing, eating or mobility
  • Have $2,000 or less in countable assets and income below 300% of the current Supplemental Security Income benefit
  • Have the resources to pay the facility’s state-established room-and-board charges
Exempt assets include a principal home valued at less than $585,000, furnishings, personal effects, a burial trust and one vehicle. Income from all sources counts toward the limit. Exceptions are made for married couples if only one spouse applies for the waiver. The non-applicant spouse is entitled to a minimum maintenance needs allowance of $2,057.50 per month and a resource exemption of $126,420 in jointly owned assets. Enrollment in the ALW program requires submitting an application and completing telephone screening and an in-person assessment, after which financial eligibility is determined. Over-income applicants may have to pay a monthly amount toward the cost of services. The program is not an entitlement, and enrollment is limited, so seniors may have to wait for an available slot. To learn more about the Assisted Living waiver, visit Ohio Medicaid. To apply, contact the Akron/Canton Area Agency on Aging at (800) 421-7277.

Other Financial Assistance Programs for Assisted Living

Residential State Supplementation Stark County residents who qualify for or receive SSI benefits may be entitled to supplemental payments from the state of Ohio to reduce their rent or room-and-board costs in an assisted living facility. To receive these additional monthly benefits, applicants must be age 60 or older and:

  • Have a need for care that can’t be met at home
  • Meet the state’s income guideline of approximately $1,300 per month
  • Have $2,000 or less in countable assets
  • Be eligible for regular Medicaid and not a waiver program
To learn more about the RSS application process call (855) 777-6364 or visit OhioMHAS. Veterans Aid and Attendance Pension Top-Up Senior veterans and their surviving spouses currently receiving a regular VA pension may be eligible for supplemental Aid and Attendance benefits that can go toward assisted living room and board. To qualify, applicants must be 65 or older or disabled and an honorably discharged wartime veteran. Additionally, they must meet one of these criteria:
  • Have a significant, qualifying visual impairment
  • Need assistance with daily living activities
  • Be bedridden due to chronic illness or a disability
  • Currently reside in a nursing home due to physical or mental impairment
Qualifying assistance needs and disabilities don’t have to be related to military service. However, those currently receiving a VA disability pension aren’t eligible for A&A benefits. The application and determination process is often complicated and quite lengthy, but approved benefits may be paid retroactively.
