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.
