What to Consider About Assisted Living in Auburn

Auburn, New York, is located near the heart of the Empire State. Harriet Tubman, the abolitionist and underground railroad worker, owned a plot of land in Auburn where she created a fugitive slave house for friends and family escaping to the North. Her house is now on the National Register of Historic Places and is just one of the pieces of history seniors can discover in Auburn.

The senior population of Auburn is approximately 17 percent and is served with four assisted living facilities in the city limits of Auburn and three in the surrounding areas. Assisted living facilities - or adult care facilities (ACF), as they are referred to in the state of New York - are defined as centers providing long-term, non-medical residential services to adults who are unable to live independently. There are three separate types of ACFs in New York which are regulated by the State Department of Health.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Auburn

  • The Auburn area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Auburn Community Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

  • Auburn has an array of community resources for seniors, including The Senior Citizens Club, an organization that offers art classes, wellness programs and blood tests or hearing consultations.

  • Though New York is considered an expensive state, Auburn's cost of living is 16 percent cheaper than the national average and 38 percent cheaper than New York's average. Seniors who wish to live in New York but experience more affordability within the state could select Auburn.

  • Auburn gets 106 inches of snow per year on average, much higher than the national average of 26 inches per year. Such wet winters could be difficult for seniors who enjoy spending time outside.

  • Centro is the main public transit system in Auburn and offers reduced fare for seniors who show either a Centro ID or a combination of a Medicare card and photo ID.  If seniors are looking to visit New York City, Trailways bus service supplies 10 percent off regular adult fares and half-off off-peak hour rates.

  • In Auburn, chances of being a victim of property crime are 1 in 30 as opposed to the New York average of 1 in 65. Because of this, seniors should inquire how prospective assisted living facilities keep residents and their property secure, and seniors should take extra precautions when out and about in the city.

Paying for Assisted Living in Auburn

Assisted Living costs in Auburn start around $0 per month on average, while the nationwide average cost of assisted living is $4,000 per month, according to the latest figures from Genworth’s Cost of Care Survey.
