10 Best Nursing Homes in Bronx, NY

Answer a few questions to get personalized results

Who are you searching for?

Situated in the northern most part of New York City (NYC), the Bronx offers nursing services in a mixture of urban-core living and affluent suburban neighborhoods. While nursing home has become a catchall senior care term for many people, it actually describes a specific type of medical setting that provides skilled nursing care. A skilled nursing facility typically provides specialized nursing care and rehabilitative medical support on a short-term basis, whereas a nursing home usually provides long-term care. These facilities can offer 24/7 care, facilitate recoveries from surgeries or injuries, and offer compassionate hospice care at the end of life.

Skilled nursing care can be ideal for people who need round-the-clock medical care and supervision. However, if your loved one only needs personal care, assistance with meal preparation, or help with memory challenges, assisted living or memory care communities may accommodate their unique needs better.

A Place for Mom partners with assisted living and memory care communities located in the Bronx. The average monthly cost of these communities is around $7,000 a month, which is similar to Queens and Staten Island. These communities can assist elder Bronxites with activities of daily living in a long-term housing setting.

5 / 5.0

My mom has been here for 3 weeks. The first few days she called me constantly. Now, she never calls me because she's happy! She's getting great attention and is making friends. I'm so comfortable with my choice.

3.6 / 5.0

Country/suburban setting. Residents have a unique opportunity to focus on the writings and teaching of Rudolph Steiner which underlie the work here as well as that much of the surrounding community.

Read on to learn what Medicare, Medicaid, and VA benefits may cover when it comes to nursing home care in the Bronx.

Can Medicare pay for nursing homes in the Bronx?

As a federal health insurance program, Medicare offers coverage to eligible people who are at least 65 years old in the Bronx. Medicare typically covers short-term stays at a skilled nursing facility, but specific conditions must be met for coverage to apply. It’s important to understand that Medicare is not a long-term payment solution for skilled nursing care.[03]

If your loved one needs assisted living or memory care, Medicare may cover some costs for health care services received in those communities. These may include the following for eligible participants:[04]

  • Prescription medications
  • Medical supplies
  • Preventative care services
  • Hospice care
  • Rehabilitative services



For additional information on these benefits, contact a local Social Security Administration (SSA) office in the borough.

Locations can be found on the Social Security Office Locator. Follow these steps to search:

  1. Enter your ZIP code.
  2. Select “I Need Other Services” to see locations in the area.

Can Medicaid pay for nursing homes in the Bronx?

For Bronx residents, Medicaid is commonly referred to as New York State Medicaid. Medicaid a joint federal and state program that offers health insurance to qualified, low-income New Yorkers. It can also help eligible Bronxites pay for senior care, including the following:[05]

  • Long-term care at a skilled nursing facility
  • Rehabilitation services related to a disability, injury, or illness
  • Skilled nursing and other related medical care



For those who prefer to reside in an assisted living community, New York offers an Assisted Living Program (ALP). ALP can help Medicaid recipients cover the cost of assisted living services. However, the program is limited and certain conditions must be met for eligibility.

Seniors can connect with any of the following Medicaid offices located in the Bronx for help with Medicaid:

Fordham
241-2529 Bainbridge Ave.
Bronx, NY 10458
Phone: 929-252-3230
Hours: Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. ET

Rider Community
305 Rider Ave., Fourth Floor
Bronx, NY 10451
Phone: 718-585-7872
Hours: Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. ET

Can VA benefits pay for nursing homes in the Bronx?

With approximately 18% of NYC’s veterans calling the Bronx their home, there are many resources for veterans in the borough.[06]

Public nursing options are available and may be covered by VA benefits. For veterans interested in living with their fellow brothers-and-sisters-in-arms, the Community Living Center (VA nursing homes) located at James J. Peters VA Medical Center in the Bronx may be a good fit. There are also state veterans homes located nearby in Queens and Long Island. These options are usually less expensive than private nursing home options.

For people who prefer to reside in a private nursing home, assisted living community, or memory care community, the VA offers programs to help cover the costs, including the following:

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



It can be challenging to navigate VA benefits. The New York City Department of Veterans’ Services Bronx location or a local veterans service organization (VSO), such as the American Legion Leonard H. Hawkins Post 156, can typically offer support with VA benefit questions and applications. Additional VSOs are also located near Manhattan.

If your loved one doesn’t qualify for VA benefits or decides they’re not interested in going through the VA application process, they may still qualify for a veteran or military discount at a senior care community. It’s a good idea to inquire about such discounts during a community tour.

The Bronx is known for its diverse population, cultural richness, and distinct neighborhood vibes. Compared to other boroughs, the Bronx has a significant Hispanic population with more than half of its population identifying as such in the latest U.S. Census.[07] There’s also a rapidly growing Asian population in this borough.
