    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Clarence

    With a population of more than 32,000, 16.9% of which is age 65 and over, the modern city of Clarence was once an area the local Native American tribes called Place of Hickory Bark. The seniors who live here now have access to a pair of assisted living facilities in the city and 13 additional facilities located nearby. New York’s Department of Health licenses adult care facilities into three distinct tiers, including Adult Homes, Enriched Housing Programs, and Assisted Living Residences. The highest level of care is provided by Assisted Living Residences.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Clarence

    • Clarence gets an F for ozone pollution from the American Lung Association due to its location in Erie County. Since ozone is harmful to respiratory and circulatory health, seniors should check the daily air quality before going outdoors.
    • While the summers in Clarence are very pleasant, the area is notorious for very harsh winters. Average low temperatures in January reach 18 degrees, and an average of 84 inches of snow falls annually. Seniors are especially susceptible to the cold, so having warm clothing is a necessity in this community.
    • Clarence is considered a relatively safe place for seniors to live. The violent crime rate is 10.9 points below the national average of 22.7. The property crime rate is 12.4 points below that national average of 35.4.
    • The city of Clarence has several noteworthy arts and culture locations for seniors to enjoy. The Museum of European Art contains pieces by classic artists like Pablo Picasso, and the Clarence Historical Society Museum features historical exhibits, programs, events and a genealogy library.
    • Clarence has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Williamsville.
