    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Niskayuna

    Niskayuna, New York, is nestled alongside the Mohawk River, approximately 18 miles from Albany. Because nearly one-fifth of the population is over 65 years of age, Niskayuna offers its citizens 25 assisted living facilities within close proximity. Rather than being known as assisted living facilities in Niskayuna, the New York State Department of Health refers to these communities as adult care facilities and defines these centers as long-term establishments that offer residential services to adults who can't live independently.  There are three separate types of ACFs available in New York and Niskayuna.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Niskayuna

    • Niskayuna has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Niskayuna Senior Center, an organization that offers monthly outings to various places, exercise classes and transportation to and from medical appointments or shopping.
    • The Niskayuna area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital, Ellis Hospital, located in Schenectady.
    • Seniors who choose to live in Niskayuna will find the overall cost of living 15 percent cheaper than the average cost of living in the state of New York. All average costs in Niskayuna, including grocery, health and transportation costs, are cheaper in Niskayuna than New York at large, with housing costs being significantly cheaper.
    • The crime rate in Niskayuna is 56 percent lower than the United States' average, and the number of annual crimes each year has decreased by 23 percent. Such promising statistics suggest Niskayuna is a safe place for assisted living for seniors.
    • Air quality throughout the nation is measured by the EPA based on the number of harmful air pollutants. The air quality in Niskayuna is considered 7 percent better than the national average air quality. Seniors who enjoy exercising or recreation outdoors might benefit from the above-average air quality in Niskayuna.
    • Average temperatures in Niskayuna range from 75 degrees in the summer to 25 degrees in the cooler months. Winters in Niskayuna are harsh, with nearly double the amount of snow received each year than the national average snowfall. This may be a consideration for seniors who dislike snow.
