Independent Living in New York

Overview of Independent Living in New York

New York State’s variety of lifestyle options makes it an ideal retirement destination. While the hustle and bustle of New York City may be the first thing that comes to mind, the Empire State has much more to offer. From the beaches of Long Island, to Niagara Falls and the Finger Lakes out west, to the Catskill and Adirondack Mountains in the north, New York is filled with natural wonders and smaller, quieter towns.

Currently, A Place for Mom partners with more than 350 independent living communities in New York.

The median monthly cost of independent living in New York is about $3,000.
