Situated in New York’s scenic Capital District just off the I-90 thruway, Schenectady is a thriving, progressive city with deep historical roots. Incorporated in 1765, Schenectady is home to just over 67,000 people, and 13.8% of the city’s residents are seniors aged 65 and older. While the area once served as a manufacturing hub, it’s now known for its vibrant downtown district, well-preserved historical buildings and lively arts and cultural scene. 

Seniors who want to join an assisted living community that’s close to health care services will appreciate the fact that Schenectady is served by a number of hospital systems. Ellis Medicine operates four sites in the area, including the Ellis Hospital, which provides comprehensive cancer care services in conjunction with the Roswell Park Cancer Center. 

Genworth’s 2020 Cost of Care Survey shows that the monthly median rate for assisted living care in Schenectady is $4,800, which matches the statewide median rate for New York. Given Schenectady’s many amenities and services, as well as the city’s proximity to the state capitol, Albany, it’s easy to see why Schenectady makes for an ideal retirement destination.
