To the left you will find a directory of over 50 categories of services for boomers and senior citizens in greater Cincinnati, Ohio. The metro area is home to approximately 2.1 million people, with a senior citizen population of just under 11%, and is located in a unique geographical territory because it shares three states in Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky. Many aging adults living outside Hamilton County (the primary county) travel into Cincinnati proper in order to receive care at nationally recognized medical centers such as Christ Hospital, Good Samaritan Hospitals, and University of Cincinnati Medical Center. You can also find wonderful senior services both in the city limits and surrounding counties, such as senior living communities, home health agencies, elder law attorneys, etc. Senior Directory has FREE Care Advisors who can help you navigate the complexities of the senior healthcare industry. If you need help finding services for you or a loved one please contact us at 1-800-955-8510.
As a top 30 biggest city in the nation, Cincinnati is a great place for retirees to call home during their golden years. Home to two major sports teams, the Reds (baseball) and Bengals (football), and two division-one Collegiate teams in Xavier University and University of Cincinnati, The Queen City offers its residents year-round live sporting events to attend. For a cultural experience, you can’t beat walking along the River Walk, biking over Roebling Suspension Bridge, or simply hanging out at Smale Riverfront Park. You can also spend a wonderful afternoon taking the grandkids to the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanic Gardens or Cincinnati Art Museum. Downtown is not the only area known for great nightlife, as it would take you months to try all of the up and coming local restaurants and bars in neighborhoods such as Over the Rhine and Mt Adams. Mt Lookout, Hyde Park, Sharonville, and Northgate are also great places to live for retirees.
As you age, it is important to stay as physically active as possible. Over a third of seniors will incur an injury from slipping and falling. One way for senior citizens to stay in the best possible health is to engage in one of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky’s many outdoor activities. Kyak down the Ohio River or bike along the old, historic streets of downtown. Enjoy acres of beautiful wildlife, wildflowers, and hiking trails in Bone Cliffs Forest, Middle Creek Park, and East Fork State Park. We also recommend you travel south to Kentucky for a daytrip and walk along the beatiful campuses of University of Louisville and University of Kentucky. Put simply, Cincinnati is a great place for boomers and seniors… perhaps it may even be Ohio’s hidden gem.
