What to Consider About Assisted Living in Rome

Located in the center of the state of New York, Rome sits at the base of the Adirondacks. It was once called Copper City, as 10 percent of all of America's copper was manufactured here. It is now an ideal suburb to retire in, as nearly 18 percent of its population consists of locals over the age of 65. There are five assisted living facilities in the Rome area for seniors to choose from, all of which are licensed, certified and regulated by the New York Department of Health.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Rome

  • Weather in Rome, New York has four defined seasons. Winters are cold with lows that dip into single digits in January, accompanied by snow averaging 114 inches per year. Summers don't get very hot, rarely rising above the low 80s in July. Spring and fall will usually require light jackets for seniors.

  • Rome has excellent air quality almost year-round, which is great for seniors to breathe easy.

  • The cost of living in Rome is well below the national average, due primarily to inexpensive housing. Beyond low home prices, however, monthly essentials for seniors such as groceries, utilities and transportation are in line with national averages.

  • When it comes to crime in Rome, the city is safer than 28 percent of other cities in the nation. Most of the crime is property-related, with an average higher than the rest of the state. Violent crime is significantly below the state average, making it safe for seniors.

  • The Office for Aging and Continuing Care in Oneida County provides volunteer transportation services for residents who are 60 years and older and not receiving Medicaid benefits. A number of other private transportation services or drivers for seniors also exist in the Oneida County area, serving towns like Rome.

  • Rome has no/few facilities from which to choose from in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Utica.
