    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Olean

    Built along the shore of the Allegheny river, Olean, New York, is the most populous city in Cattaraugus County. About one-fifth of Olean's residents are 60 years of age or older. For seniors and their families who are considering assisted living, there are two assisted living communities available in the Olean area. 

    In Olean and throughout New York, the New York State Department of Health licenses different kinds of Adult Care Facilities (ACFs) based on the level of assistance they provide. Assisted Living Residences (ALRs) are for seniors who require a minimum level of care, while Enhanced Assisted Living Residences (EALRs) and Special Needs Assisted Living Residences (SNALRs) are for residents who require progressively higher levels of care.

    • With a cost of living that is 26.3 percent below the national average, Olean is more affordable for seniors than most U.S. cities.
