In order to find the top assisted living communities in the Syracuse area, our team of researchers sorted through 35 communities using our unique methodology. Our team:

  • Spent over 30 hours researching assisted living communities in Syracuse
  • Interviewed 16 facility staff members
  • Read more than 160 reviews left by residents and their family members

After filtering out facilities that didn’t meet our high standards, we were left with 20 assisted living communities that earned our seal of approval. Through this process we discovered that the average cost of assisted living in the city of Syracuse is $4,033, which is considerably higher than the state average of $6,950 and about the same as the national average of $4,051.

Brookdale Bellevue is a community dedicated to providing care for seniors who need assistance, including those who require memory care. Tucked away in a wooded area down the street from Wegmans, St. Ann Parish and Western Lights Shopping Center, it's a short drive from restaurants, shopping stores, and grocery stores as well as area doctors and hospitals. This secluded community provides opportunities for residents to enjoy the outdoors by watching wildlife and walking the paths of the beautifully landscaped grounds. With everything on one level, residents can easily navigate the building and grounds, with 24-hour security, daily check-ins and emergency alert systems keeping residents safe. Staff members enjoy pampering them, recognizing each individual's preferences before responding accordingly. Associates are carefully selected and trained to do more than assist with daily living, customizing care plans to meet each resident's needs.
