What to Consider About Assisted Living in Schenectady

The New York State Department of Health regulates assisted living communities in Schenectady. The department provides information about assisted living on its website that seniors may find useful. Seniors can also view the results of compliance inspections to ensure the residence they're considering maintains good health and safety standards.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Schenectady

 

  • Schenectady's overall cost of living ranks 8.5% below the national average, improving seniors' purchasing power. The city has a high sales tax rate of 8%, but New York offers several income tax benefits for seniors to offset this. The state doesn't tax Social Security income, and seniors can claim a deduction of up to $20,000 on other forms of retirement income.

 

  • Crime occurs more often than usual in Schenectady. Residents of the city have a 1 in 185 chance of experiencing a violent crime each year vs. a 1 in 319 chance statewide. About 1 in 39 people experience property crime compared to 1 in 74 across New York. However, moving into an assisted living community may help mitigate these higher crime rates through the extra security it provides.

 

 

  • Schenectady is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities. Membership entails a commitment to improving public infrastructure, health care and amenities for people of all ages. With a livability score of 56, Schenectady sits within the average range of most member cities regarding its suitability for seniors.

 

  • The area's air quality measures high on most days, and the American Lung Association awards the region with an A rating for ozone pollution and a passing grade for annual particulate levels.

 

  • When it comes to transportation in the city, Trailways operates a public bus service in Schenectady, and seniors can travel to other locations in New York via Amtrak.
