What to Consider About Assisted Living in Plattsburgh

Nestled on Lake Champlain about 20 miles south of the Canadian border and near the Adirondack Mountains is Plattsburgh, New York. It's home to nearly 20,000 people, nearly 20 percent of whom are aged 60 and over. To support the older adult population, the Plattsburgh area offers four assisted living communities, with three located within the city limits and one located nearby. In Plattsburgh, assisted living facilities are licensed by New York's Department of Health, and they are categorized as Adult Homes, Enriched Housing Programs and Assisted Living Residences, depending on the level of care they offer. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Plattsburgh

  • Plattsburgh’s winters can be harsh, with lows near the single digits and 57 inches of annual snowfall, which may be a consideration for seniors who enjoy being outdoors. Summers are pleasant, however, with highs around 80 degrees.

  • While the overall cost of living in Plattsburgh is about 10 percent less than the nation’s average, this is primarily due to the low cost of housing; seniors may find that their expenses are slightly higher here than elsewhere. Seniors can expect to pay slightly more on groceries and transportation and about 15 percent more for health care than they would in other U.S. cities.

  • Plattsburgh is safer than 20 percent of U.S. cities, and residents have a 1 in 37 chance of being the victim of a crime. However, a majority of the crimes committed are non-violent property crimes, and the number of year over year crimes in this city has decreased by 4 percent.

  • While sales and property tax are relatively high in New York, all Social Security retirement benefits are exempt from taxes, as is any income from retirement accounts or private pensions up to $20,000. This may leave more money in the budget for assisted living.

  • The Plattsburgh area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 

  • Plattsburgh has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Senior Citizens Council of Clinton County, an organization that provides seniors with social, recreational and educational programming, as well as one senior center.
