What to Consider About Assisted Living in Orchard Park

Orchard Park is located 14 miles southeast of Buffalo, New York, not far from the iconic Niagra Falls. Though 19.4 percent of Orchard Park's population is older than 65, there are only three assisted living facilities in the city and nearby areas. Assisted living facilities are known as adult care facilities (ACFs) in New York, and they are regulated by the New York State Department of Health. There are three types of ACFs that are licensed by the state, including adult homes and enriched housing programs.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Orchard Park

  • The Orchard Park area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Buffalo.

  • Orchard Park has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Senior Center, an organization that provides physical activities like tai chi and art classes.

  • Winters are harsh in Orchard Park, as they are in the rest of Upstate New York, with temperatures dropping below 10 degrees Fahrenheit in the coldest months. Orchard Park also experiences more than quadruple the amount of snow than the rest of the United States. Seniors who enjoy the sunshine or travel often should take this into consideration.

    Paying for Assisted Living in Orchard Park

    Assisted Living costs in Orchard Park start around $0 per month on average, while the nationwide average cost of assisted living is $4,000 per month, according to the latest figures from Genworth’s Cost of Care Survey.
