What to Consider About Assisted Living in Amsterdam

Located just outside the Albany-Troy-Schenectady metro area, Amsterdam, New York, straddles the Mohawk River. Named after the city in the Netherlands, Amsterdam was once the location of the Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame. The city has nearly 18,000 people, 17 percent of whom are 60 years or older. To accommodate this sizable senior population, there are six assisted living facilities in the Amsterdam area, all of which are licensed, certified and regulated by the New York Department of Health.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Amsterdam

  • Like much of the northeastern United States, Amsterdam has four defined seasons. Winters are cold and have large amounts of snowfall, with lows in the teens for at least a couple of months per year. Summers typically are in the 80s, but 90s aren't unusual.

  • Amsterdam is a small city, but there's a lot of art and culture to check out. There's Old Fort Johnson, which is a national historic landmark. There are concerts, festivals and other events along the stretch of the Mohawk River that runs through Amsterdam.

  • Amsterdam has a relatively modest cost of living overall, well below the state and national averages. Housing is less than half of the national average. Other necessities, such as groceries, utilities and healthcare, are about even with the national average.

  • Amsterdam’s crime rate is low: 32 percent lower than the national average for a city of its size and 67 percent lower when it comes to violent crime.

  • The Office for the Aging in Montgomery County will assist seniors with transportation as long as they can prove their age and residency. Seniors must call the office during daytime business hours to arrange a ride within the Amsterdam area.

  • The Amsterdam area has no/few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in the nearby capital city of Albany.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Amsterdam

For those seniors in Amsterdam that need financial assistance paying for their assisted living facility, the state of New York offers an Assisted Living Program. For those who qualify, the program will pay for a senior’s assisted living facilities as long as a high level of care is required for participants, equivalent to what one would receive in a nursing home. Most people in this program are on Medicaid, though a small percentage of people who aren’t still may receive financial assistance.

Learn more about these programs, plus who’s eligible, on our Assisted Living in New York page.
