To meet the needs of older residents, the city is home to a thriving senior center and outstanding medical facilities such as White Plains Hospital, which was named one of the best hospitals in the country.
White Plains has a comparatively low crime rate, making it a great option for seniors seeking a safe community in southeastern New York. Its weather is fairly mild throughout the year, and humidity levels are generally low, and while the cost of living is high, seniors can claim large deductions on their retirement income to reduce what they owe in taxes, which can help them afford local long-term care costs.
The 2021 Genworth Cost of Care Survey estimates assisted living costs in White Plains at $5,750 per month, making this city among the costlier options in New York and the nation as a whole. While local assisted living fees exceed state and national norms, as well as rates in nearby cities, they’re affordable compared to rates in Ithaca and Watertown, as well as to care costs in cities across state lines such as Bridgeport, Connecticut.
