What to Consider About Assisted Living in Oneonta

Known as City of the Hills, Oneonta, New York, is a city situated in the northern foothills of the Catskill Mountains. Oneonta offers seniors a small-town community with mountain views and a population of 21 percent of citizens over the age of 65. Seniors in Oneonta can choose from three different assisted living facilities. These communities – or adult care facilities (ACF), as they are referred to in the Oneonta – are defined as centers providing long-term, non-medical residential services to adults who are unable to live independently. There are three separate types of ACFs in the state of New York which are regulated by the State Department of Health

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Oneonta

  • The Oneonta area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Bassett Healthcare Network A.O. Fox Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

  • Oneonta experiences snowy winters, averaging more than triple the national mean snowfall during its winter months. Because the temperatures range between 18 and 25 degrees during this time, seniors who have medical conditions that are aggravated by the cold might look elsewhere for assisted living options. Summers in Oneonta are typically in the 70s.

  • Crime rates in Oneonta are high, with the chances of being a victim of some sort of violent or property crime around one in 33. Because Oneonta is more dangerous than 80 percent of all cities across the country, seniors looking to move to a city with less than 20,000 residents could choose another area for lower crime rates.

  • On a scale of one to 100, Oneonta's air quality receives a score of 72 compared to the national average score of 58. This score highlights that the air quality contains significantly less harmful air pollutants than other areas of the nation and could make a difference for seniors who spend a lot of time outside. 

  • The Oneonta Public Transit system provides public transportation for seniors in the area at a reduced fare.  If seniors are looking to travel to New York City, the Trailways Bus Service offers a discount.

  • The cost of living in Oneonta is 25 percent cheaper than the average cost of living across the state of New York. For seniors who prioritize affordability as well as living in New York, Oneonta could be considered for assisted living.
