    What to Consider About Memory Care in Vestal

    Vestal is located on the southern tier of upstate New York near the Pennsylvania border, along the Susquehanna River. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, it has an average percentage of seniors 65 and older and an estimated population of 28,199, which is served by two memory care facilities for those with Alzheimer's and dementia-related conditions. New York State currently has 400,000 residents with these diseases. 

    Because of the size of New York State, there are 59 Area Agencies on Aging serving seniors throughout the state. Vestal is served by the Broome County Office for Aging which provides access to senior services and helps with accessing benefits and planning for senior care including Alzheimer's and dementia-related care.

    • The Vestal area has average rainfall but three times the average snowfall at 75 inches per year. A memory care facility with plenty of indoor activities could be helpful in the winter months. There are only 154 days of sunshine annually, compared to an average of 205 nationally. In January the low reaches 14 degrees and in July a high of 80 degrees F can be expected.
    • The cost of living in Vestal, scoring at 88.7 relative to a 100 average, is low in every category. Seniors can meet their budget more easily on items such as utilities and groceries with housing especially affordable at a score of 73.
    • While memory care residents generally are protected from unescorted trips outside by access and exit controls on their units, it may be reassuring that Vestal has both violent crime and property crime scores right at the national average.
    • Vestal has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital specializing in brain health and dementia care located in Rochester, NY.
