Assisted Living in Buffalo, New York

Buffalo is located in the northwestern part of New York State, only 28 miles from the Canadian border and spectacular Niagara Falls. Seniors aged 65 and older make up over 12% of the population in Buffalo and have an array of interesting sights to keep them busy. Over $1 billion has been invested in the city, which is home to seven structures designed by pioneering American architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, the Buffalo Waterfront, where seniors can enjoy freshwater fishing and other water adventures, and the Niagara River Strait, designated an Important Bird and Biodiversity Area (IBA).

While taxes on property and private retirement accounts are high in NYS, seniors won’t be taxed on Social Security, federal, NYS state, military and railroad retirement benefits. The cost of living in Buffalo is about 20% less expensive than the rest of the nation, although crime rates are significantly higher than the U.S. average. However, assisted living communities often provide residents with top-notch security measures. The average cost of assisted living in Buffalo is $4,443 per month, but prices vary according to location and amenities.

Buffalo Assisted Living Financial Assistance

New York State’s Assisted Living Program (ALP) helps seniors who qualify for nursing home care, but would rather reside in assisted living at a lower cost while still receiving the medical care and socialization they need. The program is open to seniors who are on Medicaid and those who are not, although the majority are Medicaid recipients. The program is limited to 4,200 residents, so there may be a waiting list.

Learn more about the ALP program on our Assisted Living in New York page.
