    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Poughkeepsie

    Poughkeepsie is located in the Hudson River Valley and is the city where the US Constitution was ratified in 1788.  In the state of New York, assisted living facilities are referred to as adult care facilities (ACF) and are regulated by the New York State Department of Health which licenses three separate types of facilities: adult homes, enriched housing programs and residencies for adults. Thirteen percent of Poughkeepsie's population are seniors, and with four ACFs directly in Poughkeepsie and 12 nearby, they have plenty of housing options.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Poughkeepsie

    • Poughkeepsie is a cold city, with average temperatures around 49 degrees and highs of 85 in the summer months. Weather is an important detail for seniors to consider when contemplating assisted living. 

    • Poughkeepsie's violent crime rate is nearly triple that of the national average. This could mean the city isn't a very safe place for seniors to settle.

    • Free Dutchess County Public Transit passes are available for Poughkeepsie seniors presenting proof of age 60 years and older. Free transit means easier access to nearby restaurants, shopping centers and attractions.

    • The cost of living in Poughkeepsie is 13 percent higher than the national average. However, it's nine percent lower than the rest of New York, making it a cost-effective home for seniors.

    • The city of Poughkeepsie has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Senior Center Program, an organization that allows residents to participate in exercise activities or take computer classes, as well as one other senior center.

    • Air quality within Poughkeepsie is 11 percent below the national average and is based on the number of harmful pollutants in the atmosphere. This could pose a problem for seniors with lung conditions.
