What to Consider About Assisted Living in Kenmore

Kenmore is a cozy village near the Buffalo-Niagara Falls metropolitan area that was once named the “One of the Top 10 Great Neighborhoods” in the United States by the American Planning Association. Kenmore has a population of 15,217, approximately 18.1 percent of which is aged 65 years or older. Those seniors have access to 27 assisted living facilities in and around Kenmore, all of which qualify as adult care facilities (ACF) under state guidelines and are therefore regulated and monitored by the New York State Department of Health.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Kenmore

  • Kenmore boasts pleasant summers with highs around 81 degrees Fahrenheit, but the winter climate is less welcoming, with an average of 85 inches of snow per year. Seniors with medical issues exacerbated by cold temperatures may find winters in Kenmore difficult.
  • Thanks to an overall cost of living well below the national average, Kenmore is an affordable place to live for seniors on a budget.
