    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lancaster

    Lancaster is a suburb in Erie County, New York, 14 miles east of Buffalo. The town is full of historic buildings such as the Warren Hull House and the Lancaster Opera House, and is home to a thriving population, 15.8 percent of which are over the age of 65. Seniors looking for assisted living facilities (ALFs) can choose from three in town and more than a dozen in the surrounding areas. The New York Department of Health regulates ALFs and defines them as adult care facilities (ACFs) which provide nonmedical care and room and board for seniors. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lancaster

    • Lancaster is a great choice for seniors on a budget as the cost of living here is relatively low, only 0.9 percent higher than the U.S. average. Housing is the biggest factor for this difference with grocery, travel and health care costs coming in below national medians. 
        
    • The climate in Lancaster is variable. The summers are warm and pleasant with highs of 80 degrees in July, but winters can get quite cold with temperatures sometimes dropping to 18 degrees in January. Snowfall averages 98 inches per year which could be an issue for seniors who need to get outdoors during the winter months.  
    • Crime is low in Lancaster, so seniors can feel safe traveling around town.  The town is safer than 56 percent of U.S. cities. Violent crime scored a 21.5 on a scale of 0 to 100 with 100 representing high crime. Property crime is even lower at 19.7. 
       
    • For seniors who don’t drive, Lancaster has a couple of public transportation options. NFTA Metro has several buses that stop downtown with reduced fares for seniors over 65. The Lancaster Senior Center provides van transportation Monday through Friday. 
       
    • Social security benefits are not taxed in the state of New York and income from private pensions and retirement accounts have tax deductions which could be beneficial for seniors living on a budget.  
    • Seniors with respiratory difficulties can benefit from the good air quality in Lancaster. The town scored a 75 out of 100 with 100 being the best on Sperling’s index. Buffalo and the surrounding areas made the American Lung Associations Cleanest Cities list for short-term particle pollution.
