This is the best place and we think it is amazing. We have been very happy with our experience here. I would recommend the community to others for their loved ones and already have. My loved one loves the food and it is the best. They have healthy meals with large portions. Bingo, rosary, social hour, exercises, and more are some of the activities for the residents to choose from. They even have a shuttle bus to take residents to shopping centers. The staff are very courtesy, knowledgeable and professional to work with.
The marketing team was so helpful during the tough decision making process by addressing all of our questions and concerns, and provided continued support to us and Mom during move-in and the first few weeks of settling in. The staff is a great group of kind and caring people. Mom is happy with living at Village Green!
My father in law is doing okay here at this community, he is still adjusting, but they are caring for him well. We do feel comfortable with his move to this community, it is a nice place. [Removed] is amazing. She was great to work with, she was very helpful, and understanding. The front desk receptionist isn't very pleasant, but the rest of the staff is very kind, and helpful. His room is well maintained when we visit, but the guest restroom could be better maintained. They have been very accommodating, and this is a community I would recommend.

The cost of assisted living in the New York metro varies based on location, floor plan options, amenities, and the level of care your loved one needs. In general, assisted living starting costs in NYC average $6,075 per month.  For families who moved into an in-network assisted living community within 10 miles of downtown New York City in 2022, the average monthly cost was $6,037, including care and amenities.
Paying for assisted living in New York City or any locale can require some careful planning. Most families combine a variety of private and public sources. We’ve compiled information and resources specific to the New York City area below. Or, for a broad overview of payment options, visit our complete guide to paying for long-term care.
The private pay options available to help you pay for New York City assisted living are highly dependent on your loved one’s financial situation. Private pay options include your loved one’s income — like savings, Social Security benefits, pensions, and investment returns — and potential sources of additional income from one or more of the following:
Note that in New York, you may be able to deduct the costs of long-term care on your tax return. In New Jersey, you cannot deduct room and board, but you may qualify to deduct medical expenses incurred in assisted living.
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.
Because COVID-19 continues to pose a risk to vulnerable populations like the elderly, assisted living facilities in New York City and the surrounding area have implemented strict guidelines to keep residents safe and healthy, but visitors are allowed.
These guidelines include:
Vaccinations. COVID-19 vaccines must be made available to all residents, and staff must receive at least one dose of the vaccination.
Masking. All visitors and staff must wear masks and adhere to the CDC’s guidelines on social distancing.
Staff Safety. Staff must use appropriate personal protective equipment when called for.
Facility Cleanliness. Surfaces must be frequently disinfected, and instructional signage should be hung throughout the facility to encourage frequent hand-washing and other infection prevention practices.

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.
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.
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.
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.

New York offers a wealth of health care providers for seniors wanting to be proactive about their health or for seniors seeking treatment for chronic conditions. The area has several highly rated hospitals, including:
Jersey City Medical Center, part of the RWJ Barnabas Health system, is just across the Hudson from lower Manhattan and ranks highly for its nursing excellence and leadership in LGBTQ Healthcare Equality. It is also known for its outstanding treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and congestive heart failure.
As a major metropolitan area, New York City has no shortage of options for public transportation. Many residents choose not to own a car, and the city is undoubtedly navigable without one.
Options for getting around town include buses, taxis, subways, and in many neighborhoods, walking can allow you to accomplish most daily errands. You can find subway and bus routes, fare prices and more at the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) website.
New York City is considered one of the world’s great cultural hubs for good reason. Within a short walk or subway ride, you can find countless museums, galleries, and theaters, as well as beautiful outdoor parks, and restaurants to fit every taste and budget.
For recreation, take a stroll through Central Park or the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. For fun with the whole family, consider a trip to the Prospect Park Zoo! Meanwhile, for those who appreciate the arts, no trip to New York City would be complete without a stop at the Metropolitan Museum of Art — one of the world’s great art museums — or perhaps a show at the equally world-renowned Metropolitan Opera.
The average cost of Assisted Living in New York is 6,075 per month. This cost may vary based on location, amenities, floorplan, level of care and other factors.
