Laws and regulations

Understand New York and New Jersey laws and regulations for assisted living facilities

When families search for assisted living, a primary concern is safety. Families want to feel confident that their loved ones are properly taken care of and live in safe, secure conditions. This is why it’s important to have some understanding of NYC assisted living laws and regulations as you conduct your search.

The New York State Department of Health is the overarching agency that evaluates and regulates assisted living facilities in NYC. Its Adult Care Facilities/Assisted Living division oversees assisted living and other adult care facilities in New York City and performs regular inspections to ensure quality and safety.

New Jersey has an extensive list of assisted living regulations, which cover everything from licensing to resident rights and staff requirements. The New Jersey Department of Health performs random facility inspections to assess all procedures and resident care.

Types of assisted living in the NYC metro

Because the NYC metro is a sprawling area with a high population, there are a number of assisted living options available, ranging from high-end options in the heart of Manhattan to more affordable traditional assisted living residences in the surrounding metro areas.

Luxury assisted living

New York City is home to a number of luxury assisted living communities that are largely based in high-rise buildings, feature elegant décor, and include amenities like movie theaters, coffee shops, heated pools, wine bars, and more. These communities, most of which can be found in Brooklyn and Manhattan, can run as high as $20,000 per month, especially if the senior requires a higher level of care in the form of ongoing assistance or memory care.

The New Jersey side of the NYC metro offers some luxury assisted living options at comparable prices, but they are usually not based out of high-rises like their New York counterparts. Instead, they’re large complexes that may include putting greens, swimming pools, and even five-star chefs.

Residential assisted living

Assisted living residences provide housing for five or more adult seniors who need help with activities of daily living and personal care. These residences can be found on both the New York and New Jersey sides of the NYC metro, and they offer daily food service, an individualized service plan for each resident, and a 24-hour staff on site, in addition to other amenities and activities specific to each facility. This type of senior housing is a spectrum of privately owned facilities, nonprofit and religious-affiliated communities, and even some government-funded housing.

Subsidized assisted living

For seniors who don’t have the means to afford these high-end facilities, the New York Foundation for Senior Citizens works to provide subsidized housing for seniors. These options are often incorporated into existing buildings, with units set aside specifically for independent living or assisted living through the Enriched Housing Program.  New Jersey also offers some subsidized housing for senior citizens through its Area Agency on Aging/Aging & Disability Resource Connection.
