10 Best Assisted Living Facilities in Toledo, OH

Answer a few questions to get personalized results

Who are you searching for?

Toledo, Ohio, is in the northwestern part of the state, near scenic Lake Eerie. It has a reputation for being senior friendly and an affordable city for retirement. Although it’s great for seniors on a budget, this city in the Buckeye State is far from boring. Seniors can take advantage of both the beautiful parks and all the amenities you’d expect to find in a large city.

A Place for Mom partners with several assisted living communities in Toledo. Assisted living offers seniors the opportunity to live as independently as possible while they receive assistance with their activities of daily living (ADLs), meals, and transportation.

This guide highlights important information on the assisted living market in Toledo. You’ll find proprietary information on our partner communities in the area, what they offer, and common ways families pay for assisted living. We also share facility reviews from real families as well as several local resources for seniors, including health care benefit programs, hospitals, and activities.

How people pay for assisted living in Toledo

It’s typical for seniors and their families to use several types of payment methods to cover the cost of assisted living expenses in Toledo. Common payment options for senior care include retirement income, savings accounts, and private or public health care insurance. Here you’ll find information on various ways to use private pay sources to fund assisted living, plus information on how public health insurance programs can help offset care costs. We provide senior resources in Toledo for veterans benefits, Medicare, and Medicaid programs that help Toledo seniors cover some assisted living expenses.

Private pay for assisted living in Toledo

Private pay is where most families and their senior loved ones begin when deciding how to pay for long-term care. Many assets could be put toward long-term assisted living. In addition to retirement savings in a 401(k) or IRA, seniors also use retirement income, such as pensions or Social Security benefits, to pay for long-term assisted living costs.

Additionally, if your loved one has an existing long-term care insurance policy, they may be able to use it to pay for some of the care costs in assisted living. Each policy may differ slightly on what’s covered and how long a senior may need to wait before they can start claiming benefits. So it’s important to review your loved one’s policy carefully. Life insurance policies might also be surrendered or sold to free up cash, depending on the policy.

Depending on your loved one’s circumstances, they may have several of the following options available to help them free up private funds for assisted living:

VA benefits for assisted living in Toledo

Number of veterans who currently live in Toledo.

Current percentage of Toledo veterans who are 65 or older.

If your loved one is a veteran or the surviving spouse of a veteran, they may be eligible for benefits that can help offset the cost of assisted living in Toledo. One of the most generous benefits is the Aid and Attendance benefit, which can be added to an existing VA Pension. Senior veterans or their spouses can put these funds toward anything that will improve their quality of life, including assisted living.

When considering veterans benefits, it’s important to work with a benefits counselor, usually found through a local veterans service organization (VSO). VSOs are trustworthy nonprofit organizations that have been vetted by the VA. Benefits counselors can help your loved one navigate the application process. They’ll consider your loved one’s eligibility based on disability and service history to help them receive all of their eligible benefits. Some VSO offices may be able to help your loved one appeal a previously denied claim.

Toledo has several VSOs that you may reach out to on behalf of your loved one, which are included in the resources section below. Use the contact information provided to connect to organizations like the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), American Legion, Disabled American Veterans (DAV), and Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA).

Toledo Medicaid for assisted living

Medicaid is insurance for low-income individuals. It’s jointly funded by federal and state governments. Ohio Medicaid can’t be used to cover the cost of room and board in an assisted living community, but it will cover the cost of care services, which can help offset the costs of assisted living.

The types of health care services Medicaid might cover include:[03]

  • Inpatient and outpatient hospital care
  • Medical equipment
  • Prescriptions
  • Preventive health care (annual examinations, immunizations, chest X-rays)
  • Dental and vision care
  • Nursing care services
  • Rehabilitative therapies
  • Hospice or palliative care

Additionally, Toledo residents can take advantage of several Medicaid waivers that enable them to receive care services exclusively in their private home or assisted living community. These waivers enable Medicaid to cover many assisted living care services on-site in a home or community.

Some of those waiver programs are outlined here.

Ohio’s PASSPORT Medicaid waiver program

One of the most notable waiver programs is known as PASSPORT. This waiver program allows eligible seniors to receive long-term services and supports in a private assisted living community rather than in a nursing home. After an eligibility screening, a case manager can work with your senior loved one to coordinate the following types of services in the senior’s home:[04]

  •  Personal care
  •  Chore and homemaking services
  •  Medical supplies and equipment
  •  Health or nursing care services
  •  Social work counseling

To be eligible for PASSPORT, seniors must be at least 60 years old and require a nursing home level of care. They also need to meet the following financial requirements:[05]

  •  Earn no more than $2,523 per month for an individual.
  •  Have no more than $2,000 in assets.

Seniors can find more information and apply at their local Area Office on Aging.

Ohio Assisted Living Medicaid waiver program

The Assisted Living Waiver Program is another option for eligible seniors to remain in a private assisted living community. The program pays for the cost of care services for Medicaid beneficiaries in an assisted living community, meaning that seniors will only pay for the cost of room and board.[06]

Covered assisted living services include:

  •  24-hour on-site response
  •  Housekeeping, laundry, and maintenance
  •  Three meals per day
  •  Personal care
  •  Transportation
  •  Nursing care
  •  Community activities

To be eligible, seniors need to meet the following requirements:[06]

  •  Need help with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, eating, etc.
  •  Be able to pay for the monthly room and board payment established by the state of Ohio.
  •  Live in a licensed residential care facility.

Seniors can apply through their local Area Office on Aging.

Aged, Blind, or Disabled (ABD) Medicaid

If your loved one is blind or disabled, they may qualify for Aged, Blind, or Disabled (ABD) Medicaid program, which covers similar care services in a private home or community environment. To be eligible, seniors must meet at least one of the following requirements:[07]

  •  Be 65 or older.
  •  Be considered legally blind.
  •  Have a disability that’s classified as such by the Social Security Administration.

Below you’ll find information for several local resources that can help you understand and access the Medicaid programs in Toledo.

Medicare assisted living coverage in Toledo

Medicare is federal health insurance, and it’s the most common insurer for anyone 65 or older. While many seniors and their families may expect Medicare to cover the cost of assisted living, unfortunately it doesn’t. Medicare only covers medically necessary costs, which are determined by you loved one’s doctor and Medicare. That may include medically necessary care on-site at an assisted living community, but it won’t cover the cost of room and board for Toledo assisted living communities. If you’re unsure whether a care expense is covered, you can look it up using the Medicare coverage tool.

Ohio does offer a Medicare savings plan, known as the Medicare Premium Assistance Program (MPAP). Within MPAP, there are four types of assistance that can help Toledo seniors pay for their Medicare Parts A and B expenses. It depends on your loved one’s income, but MPAP may help seniors pay for the following:[08]

  •  Premiums
  •  Coinsurance
  •  Copayments
  •  Deductibles

If your loved one would benefit from information counseling, you may want to reach out to The Ohio Senior Health Insurance Information Program (SHIP). This free resource connects you to counselors who can help you understand your loved one’s coverage. Additional assistance to help understand Medicare benefits can be found on the Medicare website. And, specifically, your local long-term care ombudsman can help you access care services as a Medicare beneficiary in an assisted living facility.

Understand Ohio laws and regulations for assisted living facilities

In Ohio, assisted living facilities are licensed by the Ohio Department of Health as residential care facilities.

Assisted living communities are required to renew their license annually. The Ohio Department of Health performs at least one inspection of each facility every nine to 15 months. At that time, inspectors check to make sure the community is operating in accordance with staffing and service regulations.[09] We’ve highlighted some of those regulation requirements in this section.

Assisted living communities licensed as residential care facilities in Toledo should meet the following requirements:[09]

  •  Provide residents with activities of daily living assistance.
  •  Offer social and recreational activities for residents.
  •  Have one direct care staff member (who is trained in first aid) working at all times.
  •  Have evacuation plans and disaster preparedness plans.
  •  Maintain working fire and carbon monoxide detectors.
  •  Have infection control procedures in place.
  •  Offer adequate food and dietary services.

For a full list of rules and regulations, look to Ohio’s Legislative Service Commission’s administrative code for residential care facilities.

Seniors and families in Toledo can also look up an assisted living community’s licensing status using the Ohio Health Care Provider Search Tool. Simply choose “Residential Care or Assisted Living” from the provider type menu and search for the community by name.

Read on and find more information on what our partner assisted living communities in Toledo offer, including their types of on-site care services, activities, and amenities.

Multiple levels of care make it easy to age in place

The majority of our partner assisted living communities in Toledo offer more than one type of care. This means if your loved one’s care needs change, there’s a good chance they can continue to live in their current community. Facilities with multiple levels of care on campus make aging in place a reality for many people — those trying to avoid the hassle and stress that moving can bring. The most common care combination found in our partner Toledo communities is assisted living and memory care.

Assisted living communities that offer on-site memory care have a secure area or wing of the community just for residents living with more advanced dementia. Typically, this makes it easier won’t have to move to an entirely new community. They can still visit their friends from assisted living at large community gatherings.

A small number of our partner assisted living communities offer an even wider range of care types on one campus, like independent living on top of assisted living and memory care.

Independent living is a good option for seniors ready to say goodbye to home maintenance and live in a community of their peers. Independent living communities typically offer convenient services and amenities to make daily life easier and more fun for residents. Once seniors need some assistance with activities of daily living, they may transition to the assisted living wing. And, with a secure memory care area on-site, residents will have another smooth, comfortable transition should they ever experience memory loss.

On-site health care services in Toledo assisted living facilities

The majority of our partner assisted living communities in Toledo offer on-site nursing care services. This makes it easy for residents to receive a wide range of home health care services within the community, like the following:
