10 Best Assisted Living Facilities in Bronx, NY

Answer a few questions to get personalized results

Who are you searching for?

Nestled along the border of Upstate New York and across the Harlem and East rivers from Queens and Manhattan, the Bronx — also referred to as Bronx County — ranks as the third most densely populated county in the United States. As of 2021, 14% of the more than 1.4 million population in the Bronx was 65 or older. As such, the Bronx offers a multitude of senior care community options for the older adults. A Place for Mom’s network assisted living communities are generally clustered in the northern, more suburban portion of the Bronx.

In 2022-2023, the average monthly cost of assisted living in the Bronx among A Place for Mom’s partner communities is around $7,000, according to proprietary data. This pricing is similar to the pricing of assisted living at A Place for Mom’s partner communities in Queens and Staten Island. Assisted living in the Bronx allows for older adults to receive long-term housing and support with activities of daily living.

Can Medicare pay for assisted living in the Bronx?

As a federal health insurance program for people 65+, Medicare can cover some medical costs associated with assisted living care services for eligible Medicare participants. However, it cannot cover room and board expenses for Bronx seniors.

New York seniors should consult the New York State consumer guide to community-based long-term care to learn more about what Medicare may cover.

If an older adult in the Bronx needs further assistance or individualized help with Medicare, they can also contact a local Social Security Administration (SSA) office in the borough.

Then, select “I Need Other Services” to view a list of locations in the area.

While it sounds similar to Medicare, Medicaid is a separate program. It’s a health insurance program for low-income people and is jointly funded by the state and federal governments. In the Bronx, this program is referred to as New York State Medicaid.

Like Medicare, Medicaid can’t cover the cost of room and board in assisted living communities in the Bronx.

However, eligible seniors may be able to cover some costs associated with assisted living through the Assisted Living Program (ALP). Note that older adults don’t necessarily have to qualify for Medicaid to utilize ALP. Program restrictions may limit how many elder New Yorkers can participate in the ALP.

Can VA benefits pay for assisted living in the Bronx?

More than 37,000 veterans — almost 18% of NYC’s veteran population — call the Bronx home.[04] While the VA doesn’t typically pay for room and board directly, veterans, veteran spouses, and surviving spouses may be able to utilize other programs to pay for expenses related to assisted living.

Eligible military-connected seniors in the Bronx may able to utilize the following VA programs to pay for assisted living related expenses:

  • VA Aid and Attendance benefit
  • VA Pension
  • Survivors Pension
  • VA disability compensation
  • VA health benefits



For older adults who need assistance or would like individualized help with VA benefits, they can contact the NYC Department of Veterans’ Services — Bronx location for local support.

Seniors can also reach out to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs through their phone line, chatbot, or AskVA portal.

Veteran service organizations (VSO) located in the Bronx, such as the American Legion Leonard H. Hawkins Post 156, may also offer support to veterans seeking to understand and apply to VA benefits. In some cases, the closest VSO may be in another borough. Manhattan has a large number of VSOs.

If you don’t qualify for VA programs and benefits or chose not to pursue VA assistance, you may still be able to pay less than your civilian peers. Some communities may honor veterans and their families by offering a one-time or recurring veteran or military discount. It’s a good idea to inquire about this during a tour of a prospective community.

What to expect from assisted living in the Bronx

Each New York City borough has a unique flavor of life, and the Bronx is no exception. This borough attracts newcomers to America but also remains a lifelong home for many native New Yorkers. As of 2021, more than a third of Bronx residents were foreign-born, while more than half of Bronx residents were born in New York State.[02]

The Bronx features a diverse population, which includes more than half of its population identifying as Hispanic in 2020.

While the exact boundaries between the south Bronx and the north Bronx depend upon who you ask, the north Bronx is largely considered to be the area bordering Westchester County and Yonkers down to Fordham Road or Pelham Parkway.

Historically, the north Bronx has been an affluent area and was even a childhood home to U.S. President John F. Kennedy.[06] Today, it remains more affluent than the south Bronx. With a strong suburban vibe, neighborhoods in the north Bronx may be a mixture of historic architecture, modern buildings, individual family homes with yards, and public green spaces. Some portions of the north Bronx have a similar feel to Staten Island.
