    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Homer

    Homer is a city rich in history and local landmarks, including the original railroad station and watchtower as well as Sig Sautelle's Circus House. Today, the town is home to more than 6,000 people, almost 18 percent of which fall into the aged 65 years or older category. To help provide housing for this demographic, Homer has two assisted living facilities. 

    The New York Department of Health is tasked with licensing and regulating all of the assisted living facilities in the state, which include the categories of assisted living residences, enriched housing programs and adult homes.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Homer

    • The Homer area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Guthrie Cortland Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Seniors looking at assisted living facilities in New York will want to consider the tax implications. Retirement income from Social Security is exempt, and the state offers a sizable tax deduction for other forms of retirement income. 
    • The cost of living in Homer is very affordable, which is a good thing for seniors trying to make the most of their money. The overall cost of living in Homer is around 11 percent lower than the national average but 25 percent lower when compared to the New York mean.
    • Both the violent crime and property crime rates in Homer are approximately 32 percent lower than the state averages. This can be reassuring to those looking for assisted living facilities that both they and their belongings will be safe.
    • Homer gets an average of 90 inches of snow and 42 inches of rain per year, which is much higher than the U.S. averages of 28 and 38 inches, respectively. This area also gets only 157 sunny days, compared to the U.S. average of 205, which could be an issue for seniors hoping to enjoy the sunny outdoors.
    • Homer is serviced by the Cortland Transit system which provides half-fare discounts to seniors for their fixed routes. Dial-a-ride services are also available for an additional fee.
