    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Binghamton

    Binghamton is a small city in the Southern Tier of NY. It is centrally located near larger cities like New York, Albany and Philadelphia, Pennslyvania. This location makes it easy for seniors to visit popular places while living in a smaller area. There are four assisted living facilities within city limits and four more in close by Vestal or Johnson City. The New York State Department of Health licenses and regulates all Adult Homes in the Binghamton area. Types of facilities include independent housing, assisted living and special needs.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Binghamton

    • Binghamton has a temperate climate with warm summers and cold winters. Temperatures reach into the 80s regularly during the warm season and drop into single digits throughout winter. With a location so far north, it makes sense that the area sees a lot of snow, with an average of 73 inches per year. This may hinder travel for seniors or make life difficult for those susceptible to cold. Binghamton is also one of the cloudiest cities in the country with an average of 212 days a year with at least 3/4 cloud cover.

    • Unfortunately, Binghamton sees a lot of crime. On a scale of one to 100, with 100 being the safest, Binghamton is at four. There are an average of 2512 crimes per year in the city. That’s 55 crimes for every 1000 people. The most common crimes are property related. 

    • One of the benefits of living in a smaller city near larger ones is the lower cost of living. Binghamton has a much lower cost of living than the rest of the state. The biggest factor is the price of housing. Housing costs are 39 percent lower than the national average and 58 percent lower than the state average. This helps seniors pay less for assisted living costs.

    • The Binghamton area is home world-class medical facilities, including Lourdes and Wilson, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    • New York State does not tax social security checks. This means seniors get to keep more money to spend or save.

    • The Binghamton Office for Aging conducts events, programs and services for residents in the area. Services and fun include Meals on Wheels, transportation, including rides for disabled seniors, and Senior Games.
