    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Mount Vernon

    Mount Vernon, New York, is a suburban city located immediately north of the Bronx borough. The city's population is comprised of approximately 9,825 senior citizens. As one would expect, seniors living in this area will have easy access to all the conveniences and cultural attractions available in neighboring New York City.

    Seniors seeking assisted living in the Mount Vernon area can choose from 59 assisted living facilities, with three located in Mount Vernon itself and 56 others located in nearby suburbs. In New York State, these communities are referred to as adult care facilities (ACF) and are defined as centers that provide residential services to adults who cannot live independently for an extended period of time. ACFs in Mount Vernon are regulated by the New York State Department of Health.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Mount Vernon

    • The Mount Vernon area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Montefiore Mount Vernon Hospital and St. John’s Riverside Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

      • Temperatures in Mount Vernon range between the 80s in the summer and 30 degrees in the winter. Because Mount Vernon experiences nearly nine more inches of rain annually than the national average rainfall, seniors who dislike rainy climates or intend to travel often should be aware of Mount Vernon's precipitation rates.

      • Seniors can use the Westchester County Bee-Line Bus System or the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's Metro-North Railroad rail service when living in Mount Vernon. Both services offer discounted fares for citizens aged 65 and up. 

      • Mount Vernon is considered more dangerous than 75 percent of all other towns and cities across the nation. Relative to the rest of the state, Mount Vernon's crime rates are nearly 90 percent higher than other municipalities in New York. Because crime rates are so high, living in Mount Vernon could pose safety concerns for seniors who are searching for an ACF in the area. 

      • Mount Vernon has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Westchester Jewish Community Services senior program, an organization that offers a myriad of social, fitness and educational opportunities for seniors of all backgrounds.

      • Air quality in Mount Vernon is significantly worse than the national average. The EPA ranks air quality based on pollution, and Mount Vernon receives a score of 33 compared to the country's average score of 58, with 100 being the best. More pollution in the air could result in aggravated respiratory conditions for seniors choosing to live in the area.
