Assisted Living NY

...every adult care facility has something unique to offer

Assisted Living NY has some of the strictest requirements for facilities. There are two models of assisted living for the state according to Empire State Association of Assisted Living.

Assisted Living in New York State is called adult home or adult care facility. You will see the terms used interchangeably. Licensed Assisted living, or Adult Home, the first model, must provide room, all meals and snacks, housekeeping, laundry, long term care, 24-hour supervision, case management services, structured activities and medication and personal care assistance.

ESAAL recommends making several visits at various times of day to each residence you are considering. Be sure to ask to see their licensure papers.  We have tried to mention the unique quality that stands out for each community in each category.

Cost: The average Assisted Living Cost for New York State is $3922 for 2011 and in 2012 it is $4011. Range in State: $1905-$8350 in 2011 and in 2012 it is $2195-$8768 according to the Met Life Survey.  The National Average is $3550.  As you can see, slight increases have been occurring each year.  The high end of the range is usually for those having memory care. 

In 2016 the Genworth Survey says the average cost for assisted living facilities in New York is $4136.
