What to Consider About Assisted Living in Yonkers

Assisted living facilities in Yonkers comply with guidelines created and enforced by the New York Department of Health. This department licenses assisted living facilities in the entire state and ensures a high standard of care through scheduled and unannounced inspections and by fielding and investigating reports of substandard care and conditions.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Yonkers

  • The Yonkers region has subpar air quality, which may be a consideration for those researching assisted living in this city. The American Lung Association gives Westchester County, where the city is located, a D for ozone pollution levels. Seniors sensitive to pollution may want to participate in indoor activities on high-ozone days.
  • Yonkers is a relatively expensive place to live with an overall cost of living that exceeds national norms by nearly 50%. Housing prices, utilities, transportation and groceries are all considerably more costly here than in a typical U.S. city, but seniors may be able to avoid high living costs by opting for residential care.
  • Yonkers is one of the safest places to live in New York, with the city scoring 20.9 for violent crime and 18.6 for property-related offenses on a 100-point crime index. This is several points lower than the respective state norms of 21.1 and 24.5 and national scores of 22.7 and 35.4. Assisted living residents enjoy around-the-clock peace of mind with security features such as alarm systems and security gates.
  • Yonkers has generally comfortable weather with daytime temperatures ranging from 83 in the warmest part of summer to 36 degrees in the winter. The city gets 50 inches of rainfall compared to 38 inches nationally, and it gets 28 inches of snow. Seniors in assisted living facilities have access to indoor and outdoor common areas and recreational activities, giving them plenty of opportunities to enjoy pleasant weather.
  • Health care costs in Yonkers are consistent with national norms, and there are 490 doctors per capita, more than double the U.S. average of 210. Three hospitals serve the region, including St. Joseph’s Medical Center, St. John’s Riverside Hospital ParkCare Pavilion and St. John’s Riverside Hospital, providing high access to care for older adults.
  • Seniors in Yonkers don’t pay state income taxes on their Social Security benefits, and there’s a $20,000 deduction on private pensions and income from retirement accounts to reduce retirees’ tax liability. This may help some older adults afford local assisted living expenses.
