    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Utica

    Located in the center of the state in the heart of Mohawk Valley, Utica, New York is a scenic city with a population of around 61,100 people. Although the number of younger residents is growing, the area still is home to eight assisted living facilities (ALFs), six of which are located in the nearby communities of New Hartford, Clinton, Mohawk, Middleville and Herkimer. Licensing and regulation for ALFs in Utica and the rest of the state are the responsibility of the New York Department of Health.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Utica

    • Seniors who like snow will love Utica, as the city gets a whopping average of 90 inches per year (the national average is just 26 inches). Rainfall is also a little higher than average (42 inches on average versus an average of 39 inches). Annual temperatures range from 13 degrees Fahrenheit to 82 degrees Fahrenheit. Overall, Utica’s climate yields a Sperling Comfort Index of 43 out of 100, lower than the average of 54.

    • Air quality in Utica, New York stands at 60 out of 100 based on the EPA’s National Air Toxics Assessment. That’s just slightly better than the national average of 58. While the risk of developing health conditions like a respiratory disease is higher in Utica than it is in the rest of the metro area, it’s lower than the risk for the state.

    • Utilities are expensive in Utica, New York (about 12 percent higher than the national average). But because housing in Utica costs less than half than the national average, the city boasts an overall cost of living of just 84.7.

    • In Utica, both property crime (which is rated 55.8 out of 100) and violent crime (which is rated 56 out of 100) are higher than the national averages of 38.1 and 31.1, respectively, state averages of 19.2 and 30.9, respectively, and metro averages of 38.9 and 36.9, respectively. These crime rates make Utica a less desirable choice for seniors choosing an ALF when it comes to safety.

    • Culture and entertainment venues for seniors and their families include options such as the Utica and Oneida County Farmer’s Markets, Stanley Theater, Adirondack Scenic Railroad and Munson-Williams-Protor Art Institute. There are also festivals (e.g., The Great American Irish Festival), a zoo and a venue that hosts hockey games.
