Plattsburgh, New York

Independent Living

Many seniors may be able to live without assistance, but the cost burden of home ownership and the maintenance of daily tasks and chores might be a deterrent to an independent lifestyle. Independent Living Communities provide a solid remedy to this situation. Basic tasks such as meal preparation and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and social activities is provided, allowing residents the autonomy to use their time as they choose, free from daily obligations. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and interests. Typically consisting of a private living space and a full kitchen, these communities offer residences with many of the amenities of apartment life but with none of the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and more time can be spent with them with the basic maintenance of daily chores out of the way. While policies vary between locations, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to employ the services of independent medical providers, they always have the option. There are a variety of expenses and benefits to balance when selecting an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these services are included in your service plan: field trips, cable TV, transportation, meals, housekeeping, move-in fee, internet access, and utilities. The conveniences that pertain to independent living include concierge services, community activities, security guards, beauty salon & barber shop, golf course, healthcare center, restaurant-style dining hall, and transportation.

Cost of Living

Cost of living is a major influence when determining what destination fits best. The rent burden for Plattsburgh is around 16.5% of the average monthly income. The median home value in Plattsburgh costs around $148,313 and the median rent is $1,077 a month.

Demographics and Values

In Plattsburgh, 56.7% participate in the labor force, 5.3% do not have health insurance, 5.8% consider themselves widows, and 14.8% have some form of disability.
