    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Catskill

    Catskill, New York, is a town of 11,000 in the northeast foothills of the iconic Catskill Mountains.  Author Washington Irving visited the mountains in his youth, and his 1819 book, "Rip Van Winkle," was set in the town. Now, the Catskill region is known for various outdoor activities, including skiing, fishing and hiking. Catskill's rich landscape and outdoor lifestyle could be a perfect match for seniors who enjoy spending time outside. With two assisted living facilities within the town limits and seven nearby, Catskill has nine options for seniors. The New York State Department of Health regulates and licenses three separate types of assisted care facilities throughout the state.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Catskill

    • With 19.2 percent of the town residents 65 and older, Catskill has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Robert C. Antonelli Senior Center, which offers various activities, social programs and entertainment.

    • The Catskill area has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located across the Hudson River in the Hudson, New York.

    • Living in Catskill is significantly cheaper than the average cost of living in the state of New York. While the U.S. averages a cost-of-living score of 100, New York's score is 122 and Catskill's score is 94. Seniors wishing to live in New York but in a more affordable area might consider Catskill as a viable option.

    • Catskill's crime rate is safer than only about 25 percent of U.S. cities. Such a statistic could suggest that Catskill is an unsafe choice for seniors.

    • The weather in Catskill can be quite chilly, with average highs in July around 78 degrees and average lows in January frequently below freezing. If warm weather and sunshine are the most important factors in selecting a location for assisted living, seniors could look elsewhere.

    • With a score of 77, the air quality within Catskill is approximately 19 percent higher than the national average. Because the air in Catskill contains significantly less harmful pollutants than the country's average rating, seniors with chronic lung conditions could choose Catskill for its better air quality.
