    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.

      • Overall, Orchard Park's cost of living is approximately equal to the rest of the United States and is 20 percent cheaper than New York. However, the average cost of health care and groceries is lower than the state and national median, so seniors shouldn't have a problem finding affordable options. 

      • Orchard Park experiences only half the amount of violent crimes that the rest of the United States does, with a score of 18 as opposed to the nation's 31. Property crime is 22 percent lower than in other areas of the United States. Such low rates might suggest Orchard Park is an incredibly safe option for seniors.

      • With a score of 83, the air quality in Orchard Park is 25 percent better than the national average. Because there are less harmful materials in the air, Orchard Park could be ideal for seniors who have asthma or other lung conditions.
