I like how they prepare the food in Canton Regency Assisted Living. The residents can go down to the cafeteria to eat.

Assisted Living Costs in Stark County

According to Genworth’s 2018 Cost of Care study, assisted living costs in Stark County ($3,798) are about $200 lower than the national average ($4,000) and $500 below the Ohio state average of $4,278. Costs here are slightly higher than in some nearby cities, such as Cleveland ($3,400) and Youngstown ($3,600), but considerably less than others, in particular, Akron ($4,560) and Mansfield ($4,530). Assisted living costs moderately more in the state capital of Columbus ($4,170) and Toledo ($4,300).

Note: Data for senior care costs in Stark County wasn’t available, so data for the city of Canton was used.

The Cost of Assisted Living in Surrounding Areas

Care Cost Comparison

Senior care costs are influenced by location, the type of care needed and specific services provided. Nursing homes provide 24-hour skilled nursing care and other specialized services, which is largely why costs in these facilities are over $3,000 more per month than assisted living. Homemaker services cost about the same as assisted living, while home health aide costs are somewhat higher. When comparing options, it’s important to note that seniors are responsible for household operating expenses on top of in-home care costs. This isn’t the case with assisted living, since facility fees usually include room and board.

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.

For more information and assistance with filing an application, contact the Stark County Veterans Service Commission at (330) 451-7457.
