    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Wappingers Falls

    The Village of Wappingers Falls has a rich history, which visitors and residents can learn about at the Mesier Homestead and Museum, which is open on the second Sunday of every month. This small community is located in Dutchess County at the mouth of the Hudson River and has about 5,600 residents, almost 16% of whom are age 65 and over. 

    Seniors who need assistance with some activities of daily living have two facilities to choose from within Wappingers Falls proper, and there are over a dozen more in nearby cities. These facilities may also be called adult care facilities, and they are licensed by the Department of Health. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Wappingers Falls

    • Social Security benefits are tax-exempt in Wappingers Falls, as in all of the state, and seniors may claim a large deduction to reduce what they pay in state income tax on other types of retirement income. This may leave more money in the budget for assisted living. 
    • Dutchess County Public Transit operates two routes in Wappingers Falls, both of which are available seven days a week. Every bus is equipped with wheelchair lifts and at least two wheelchair positions, making them accessible to those who use mobility aids. 
    • Seniors who have existing respiratory diseases or cardiovascular disease, particularly those who enjoy outdoor activities, may be affected by Wappingers Falls' high ozone pollution levels. The American Lung Association gives Dutchess County a D for this type of pollution and ranks the county 10 out of 228 metropolitan areas for high ozone days. 
    • While the overall cost of living in Wappingers Falls is about 15% higher than the national average, it is about 15% below the state average, which may make it a contender for seniors looking for affordable assisted living in New York.  
    • The Wappingers Falls area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Poughkeepsie.
    • Over the course of a year, temperatures in Wappingers Falls range from 18 to 84 degrees, making it a good option for seniors who enjoy experiencing four distinct seasons. The region receives about 36 inches of snow and 47 inches of rain annually, compared to the respective national averages of 28 inches and 38 inches.
