He0712: "My son is at Symphony Manor and some things are happening that are objectionable, and they have a large turnover of staff. They don't have any medical people there at all. It's a very old building, but the interior is very clean and well taken care of. They have one maintenance staff member, and they haven't fixed my son's dresser yet. The staff is very friendly. My son seems to like the dining room and he says the food is good."

Sherrey: "Orchard Heights has been fine. They have games, music, and rides outside of the area. She's had physical therapy and gets her hair done there. The place is very clean and laid out well. The rooms were nice and laid out well. It would be nice though if they had an area where the elderly can walk to, like a courtyard, without being escorted. They take them to doctors' appointments. She likes the food."

What to Consider About Assisted Living in West Seneca

West Seneca is a town in Erie County, New York just nine miles southeast of Buffalo. This historic town lies on the former Buffalo Creek Reservation and is home to a large number of seniors who comprise 20.5 percent of its population. These seniors are served by 17 assisted living facilities (ALFs) in and around West Seneca. ALFs in the State of New York are regulated by the Department of Health who defines them as adult care facilities (ACFs) that provide non-medical, long-term residences for seniors. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in West Seneca

  • West Seneca has seasonal weather with cold winters and warm summers. Snowfall here is well above the U.S. average of 26 inches at 103 inches per year. Because of this, seniors who enjoy outdoor activities may have difficulty getting around in the winter months. Rainfall averages 40 inches per year, only slightly above the national median of 39 inches.  
  • Crime in West Seneca is relatively low, so seniors can feel safe traveling around town. The city received a score of 38 out of 100 (high crime) for violent crime and a 39.9 for property crime. These numbers are only slightly above U.S. averages. 
     
  • The cost of living in West Seneca is 6.9 percent lower than the national average, which may benefit seniors living on a budget. Housing, grocery and health care costs are all below U.S. averages with transportation only slightly above national medians. 
     
  • Social security benefits are exempt from taxation in the state of New York and income from retirement accounts and private pensions are deductible. This could leave extra income for seniors to put towards assisted living costs. 
     
  • For seniors in need of transportation, NFTA Metro provides public buses with routes throughout West Seneca. Adults over 65 may purchase a reduced fare pass. The town, along with the Erie County Department of Senior Services, offers van service for seniors who need transportation to shopping and other activities.
