Who Needs Independent Living

Seniors choose New York City for independent living because they know that this is the one place in the country where they will always be able to find shopping, dining, recreation, and critical services whenever they need it. Thousands of retirement communities in the city mean that seniors can pick and choose only the best. With plenty of choices for seniors, independent retirement communities compete to provide the best services. And anything that a retirement community can't offer is always available to seniors, usually within walking distance, somewhere nearby in the city. It is comforting for seniors to know that New York City offers top quality security for the health and needs of seniors living in the city.

What to Expect

Most independent living communities in the city of New York offer some or all of the following benefits and amenities:

  • Senior friendly exercise programs and equipment
  • Convenient access to public transportation
  • Customized meal plans that accommodate special dietary needs
  • Planned outings to nearby attractions
  • Pet friendly housing and services
  • 24 hour security
  • Housekeeping and laundry services

In New York independent living communities are also referred to as retirement communities. Call us to help you find the community that meets all your needs, physical, mental, social, and budgetary.

Activities for Seniors in New York City

New York City is a center for some of the best culture and attractions in the world. Here are some of the activities you will enjoy every day.

Broadway – Broadway is a street in the heart of Manhattan where you will find the best plays and musicals in the world. From classic opera like the Phantom of the Opera to hit musicals like Wicked, there is no better place to watch great theater.

Carts and Delis – If you are looking for a quick meal, New York City is absolutely famous for its food carts and delis. Over 4000 vendors sell world famous thick baked pretzels and foot long hot dogs on almost every street of the city. And if you are looking for a sandwich, New York City delis are truly the best in the world.

Museums – The Metropolitan Museum of Art is one of the premier art exhibits in the world. Though it is far from the only amazing museum in the city. Every borough has a major museum with multiple world class collections.
