    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Rochester

    Located in upstate New York, Rochester is a small city known for being a beautiful place with plenty of activities for seniors, who comprise more than ten percent of the city's total population. To accommodate this, there are 33 assisted living facilities in the Rochester area. It's also important to note the state of New York has a very strict set of rules and regulations that all licensed assisted living facilities must abide by or risk being fined or shut down.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Rochester

    • Weather in Rochester ranges between winters that have lows below freezing from November through March and more mild summers that top out with highs in the 80s. However, the average snowfall per winter averages a whopping 99 inches annually.

    • Overall, Rochester’s air quality is considered pretty good on an annual basis, as the breeze from Lake Ontario allows the urban pollution to escape the city limits.

    • The cost of living in Rochester is significantly lower than both the state of New York and national averages. Housing is incredibly inexpensive, at less than a third of the national average, while necessities like groceries, transportation and health care are actually slightly above national averages.

    • The crime rate in Rochester is incredibly high for a city of its size — it's more than double the state and national averages. It is only 7 percent safer than most cities in the United States.

    • Monroe County and the city of Rochester provide transportation through ElderSource. As long as residents are 60 years or older, rides will be provided for discounted rates.

    • The Rochester area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Strong Memorial Hospital of the University of Rochester, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Rochester

    Beyond state Medicaid, the state of New York provides a couple waiver programs that help seniors afford their chosen assisted living facility. The Managed Long Term Care Waiver helps residents with payment in assisted living facilities and the Assisted Living Program helps those who qualify for nursing home care but want to live in an assisted living facility afford it.

    • What is enhanced assisted living?

      Enhanced Assisted Living Residences (EALR) offer a higher level of care than standard ALFs. These facilities typically also offer standard assisted living, with some or all of the facility reserved for enhanced care, which allows residents to “age in place” in the facility even as their needs increase. EALRs offer advanced services such as helping residents walk, assisting in the management of chronic urinary or bowel conditions, and handling of medical equipment. EALRs are not, however, nursing facilities. If a resident ultimately needs around-the-clock medical care, they will need to relocate to a skilled nursing facility.

    • What is the average cost of assisted living in NY?

      According to Genworth’s 2019 Cost of Care Survey, the monthly median cost of assisted living in New York is $6,950. This is more expensive than the national average of $4,051 per month. Assisted living in Rochester, however, is less expensive than the state average; the median monthly cost in the city is $4,748.

    • What qualifies you for assisted living?

      In New York, qualified residents must require assistance with their activities of daily living (such as eating and using the restroom) 60% of the time. However, there are limitations on how much care the facilities can provide, so residents must not require skilled nursing care, and those with mental health conditions requiring care cannot make up more than 25% of a facility’s population. Additionally, residents cannot pose a threat to the existing residence population.

    • How do I choose assisted living?

      Facilities significantly differ from one another and also come at a range of price points. It’s wise to first narrow your search by price, making sure you are within your monthly budget. Then, if possible, it’s a good idea to visit some facilities in person and, better yet, speak to current residents about their likes and dislikes. If you’re unable to visit a facility in person, be sure to read online reviews and speak to facility staff on the phone to make sure your or your loved one’s care needs will be met.
