    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Port Jervis

    Port Jervis is known as the “River City” due to its location on the shore of the Delaware River. In this historic city, an estimated 75% of buildings date back to the late 1800s and early 1900s. Today, nearly 8,560 people reside in Port Jervis. 

    Over 16% of the city’s residents are 65 years of age or older, and if any of them need help with daily activities, they have many assisted living facilities to choose from. There are two of these facilities within city limits, and another four nearby. The New York Department of Health regulates these facilities as well as others throughout the state.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Port Jervis

    • With highs in the low 80s, summers in Port Jervis are comfortable. Seniors can go for walks, play golf, or just sit outside and enjoy the weather. The city’s winter weather is ideal for snowshoeing and other winter pursuits: an average of 40 inches of snow falls per year, and winter lows are in the teens.
    • Compared to the national average, Port Jervis’ cost of living is 5.4% higher. However, the city is 18.5% more affordable than the New York State average, so seniors from other parts of the state may save money by retiring here. Housing costs, at 58.3% lower than the state average, are especially affordable.
    • The Port Jervis area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Bon Secours Community Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • According to one benchmark of air pollution, ozone, the New York-Newark metropolitan area is the 10th most polluted city in the country. Seniors with respiratory conditions may choose to monitor daily pollution forecasts and stay indoors on high-ozone days. 
    • This small city has a relatively high crime rate. Its overall crime rate is higher than 94% of communities in the state. Seniors may prefer assisted living facilities with 24-hour security and other security features.
    • There are many public transit options in the Port Jervis area. A commuter rail service connects Port Jervis to Hoboken, and commuter buses will take seniors all the way to New York City. For local trips, seniors can book curb-to-curb rides on the Dial-A-Bus service.
