Syracuse Senior Demographics

As the fourth most populous city in the state of New York, Syracuse is home to about 145,000 and the center of a metropolitan area which includes over 700,000. It is most known for its university, which helps make it one of the most influential educational and economic hubs in the state. In addition to being a renowned educational facility, Syracuse University has an expansive research department. Its strong economy and access to quality education for all age ranges also makes it the fourth best place to raise a family, according to Forbes.

When considering its demographics, many people forget that over 10% of its population is comprised of senior citizens and this percentage is likely to increase as more residents approach the age of retirement. Seniors that are looking to maintain active and healthy lifestyles or to connect with others in their age group can do so by taking advantage of the numerous programs offered by Syracuse’s senior centers. Services include day trips, exercise classes, health screenings, parties, lunch programs and Bingo. For more information, you can visit http://www.syrgov.net/parks/seniorRecreation.html for center addresses and event calendars.

Information on New York Nursing Home Abuse & Negligence Lawuits

Our attorneys have compiled date from settlements and jury verdicts across New York to give you an idea as to how cases are valued. Learn more about the cases below:

James Square Nursing and Rehab Centre
918 James Street
Syracuse, NY 13203
(315) 474-1561

Ownership— For profit individual

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Overall Rating— 1 star out of 5

1 star rating

Primary concerns: Understaffing is one of the roots of many nursing home concerns. A lack of qualified and well trained staff members makes it difficult to pay attention to the needs of every individual and staff members are required to decide which patients receive immediate priority. This facility is a textbook example of what happens when the staff is kept at barebones levels. It has the lowest possible score in quality measures and health inspection that Medicare can provide.

Central Park Rehabilitation and Nursing Center
116 East Castle Street
Syracuse, NY 13205
(315) 475-1641

Ownership— For profit corporation

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Overall Rating— 2 stars out of 5

2 star rating

Primary concerns: Despite having a nearly perfect quality measures score, this nursing center only received an overall score of two stars. This is due to serious understaffing and health inspection deficiencies. While having the right protocols in place to provide quality care in theory, understaffing has hindered the existing staff’s ability to provide a high level of care to everyone.

Van Duyn Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing
5075 West Seneca Turnpike
Syracuse, NY 13215
(315) 449-6000

Ownership— For profit corporation

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Overall Rating— 1 star out of 5

1 star rating

Primary concerns: There is not a single area of assessment in which this facility earned a score higher than a single star. It has a horrid health inspection history, serious understaffing concerns and lacks any sufficient quality measures to guarantee proper care.

Saint Camillus Residential Health Care Facility
813 Fay Road
Syracuse, NY 13219
(315) 488-2951

Ownership— Church owned

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Overall Rating— 1 star out of 5

1 star rating

Primary concerns: This facility has an average rated staff and quality measures, but is plagued by numerous health inspection deficiencies that place residents at increased risk of suffering injuries due to the spread of infection or environmental hazards.

Sunnyside Care Center
7000 Collamer Road
East Syracuse, NY 13057
(315) 656-7218

Ownership— For profit corporation

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Overall Rating— 1 star out of 5

1 star rating

Primary concerns: One star ratings in all areas of assessment make this a nursing center to avoid. Once again, it is reasonable to suspect that the root of most of this facility’s problems is in its poorly equipped staff. For profit nursing companies must begin to place a priority on the wellbeing of their patients or suffer consequences for failing to do so.
