New York, New York

Assisted Living

Assisted living facilities provide social interaction, oversight, and care to persons who are about 65 years of age or older. Assisted living facilities frequently offer care supervision, aid with daily activities, and opportunities for leisurely activity. In certain cases, facilities may provide dementia care, hospice, or skilled nursing. New York maintains a number of provisions associated with this kind of facility. New York’s Department of Health governs this facility type.

Local Hospitals and Health Care Providers

For many seniors, primarily those who have chronic disease or those requiring long-term treatment, proximity to medical facilities can be a motivating consideration in determining which community is right. In total, there are 16 hospitals located in New York which offer emergency services and other healthcare. The top hospitals in New York include Hospital For Special Surgery, Nyu Langone Hospitals, and Mount Sinai Hospital.

Cost of Living

The total cost of care for a community is determined by the neighborhood in which it is located. The rent burden for New York is around 22.7% of the average monthly income. Per month, the median rent in New York is $1,755 and the median price of a home in New York costs around $538,529. When it comes to resources, New York has a grocery-price index of around 114.7 and a cost of living index of around 209.3. Index scores are founded on a scale where 100 is considered the national average and anything higher than 100 is more costly than said average.

Regional Climate and Weather Information
