The small city of Circleville features rows of neatly symmetrical streets surrounded by fields. It sits beside the gently flowing Scioto River, once home to sailing ships but now occupied by recreational users. The city is the seat of Pickaway County and is possibly best known for its popular annual pumpkin festival. There are restaurants serving local and international cuisine and several parks where seniors can relax in peaceful surroundings.
The city’s slow pace may be one reason why seniors comprise 19.2% of its 14,000 residents (the country’s average is 16.8%). Others may include an average cost of living below the norm for Ohio (which itself is significantly below the U.S. average) and the long and warm summers. Berger Hospital is the city’s only major medical facility, but it has a good reputation and seniors looking for alternatives are only 35 minutes from downtown Columbus.
According to the 2021 Genworth Cost of Care Survey, the median fee for assisted living in Circleville is $4,085 per month. This is more affordable than Ohio’s average of $4,635 and the country’s $4,500.
