What to Consider About Assisted Living in Syracuse

Syracuse, New York, in the central part of the state is home to Syracuse University and is known for its championship basketball program and incredible amounts of snow every winter. About 12 percent of Syracuse's approximately 143,000 residents are 65 and older, and seniors looking to move into assisted living facilities in Syracuse may be pleased to know that the state has a very strict set of rules and regulations that all licensed assisted living facilities must follow. There are 15 assisted living facilities in the Syracuse area from which seniors can choose. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Syracuse

  • Syracuse is known for its cold, snowy winters. November through March temperatures usually below freezing, as low as 17 degrees on average, with an average annual snowfall of 123 inches. This type of weather may be tough on seniors and affect their overall health.

  • The air quality in Syracuse is considered good on a regular basis, due in part to its proximity to Lake Ontario, which dispels a lot of the urban pollution. This will help seniors with respiratory issues to breathe easier on a regular basis.

  • The cost of living in Syracuse is below both the state and national averages, primarily because of the low cost of housing in the area. However, all the other necessities, such as groceries, utilities and transportation, are in line with the national average in terms of cost.

  • As the fifth-largest city in the state of New York, Syracuse has crime issues often seen in an urban area, with the crime rate almost double the national average. It is only 9 percent safer than other cities across America.

  • The Syracuse Metropolitan Transportation Council, or SMTC, has set up a program called United We Ride, which provides transportation for seniors around the community. It provides free rides to seniors across the region.  

  • Syracuse is home to world-class medical facilities, like Upstate University Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
