Assisted Living-Long Island

Assisted Living-Long Island has two counties--Suffolk and Nassau. Nassau County is the one closer to New York City.  Suffolk County is less populated and closer to the East End of Long Island.

There are more assisted living facilities on Long Island than other counties in NY.

In New York there are two types of assisted living facilities. We urge you to ask the community you are interested in what type it is. You also should always ask to see their license papers and visit frequently before making decisions.

Long Island is a delightful place to spend your retirement years. There is a huge variety of facilities to choose from in both Suffolk and Nassau County. You are sure to find one that is right for you or a loved one.

The average cost of assisted living in New York state is $4011/mo. according to the Met Life Survey, which is above the national average.
