10 Best Nursing Homes in Brooklyn, NY

Answer a few questions to get personalized results

Who are you searching for?

Brooklyn is New York City’s most populous borough and the second most popular among seniors 65 and above, just behind Queens. It’s known for its alluring art, tremendous cultural influence, and waterfront activities by Sheepshead Bay. As the geographical center of NYC, Brooklyn enables seniors to explore other boroughs with ease.

Brooklyn offers a robust selection of long-term care options, including nursing homes and senior care facilities. It’s important to note that nursing home is often used as a blanket term to describe a variety of senior living facilities. However, a nursing home is where individuals with serious medical conditions receive 24-hour supervision and skilled nursing care.

A Place for Mom doesn’t partner with nursing homes, but it does partner with assisted living and memory care facilities. These senior care facilities offer a safe place for seniors with daily care needs to receive assistance with daily activities, personal care services, chores, and meals. They also provide an engaging environment for seniors to pursue friendships and hobbies. In Brooklyn, the monthly cost for skilled nursing is $12,471. However, the monthly costs for assisted living and memory care are around $4,364 and $4,447.

Read our full methodology

Cost of nursing homes in Brooklyn

The median cost of a nursing home in the NYC metro is about $12,471 per month.[01] Since Brooklyn is a borough of New York City, this nursing home cost reflects the entire metropolitan area. Fortunately, we highlight hyperlocal costs on Brooklyn-specific senior care options within our network below.

If your loved one doesn’t require 24-hour medical supervision, they may benefit from senior care facilities like assisted living or memory care. Below are the average costs of both senior care options in Brooklyn, according to A Place for Mom’s 2022-2023 proprietary data on what actual families paid:[02]

  • About $4,364 per month for assisted living
  • About $4,447 per month for memory care



These senior care facilities include several services in their monthly cost. For instance, seniors can expect to receive assistance with the following:

  • Activities of daily living (ADLs)
  • Meals and snacks
  • Housekeeping

For a detailed exploration of these payment options, you can check out the payment section on our NYC page or view our guide to paying for long-term care.

VA benefits

Around 31,000 veterans live in Brooklyn and more than half are age 65 or older.[03] To accommodate this substantial veteran population, Brooklyn and New York City offer resources to help veterans and their spouses cover living and senior care costs. Veteran seniors should reach out to local veterans service organizations (VSOs) in Brooklyn to receive benefits counseling and learn about their available benefits.

The NYC Department of Veterans’ Services recommends the following offices to seniors searching for veterans service organizations (VSOs) in Brooklyn:

New York State Department of Veterans’ Services (DVS)

These organizations can connect you with VSOs like the American Legion, Disabled American Veterans (DAV), and Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW). They help Brooklyn veterans receive and maximize their entitled benefits by putting them in contact with applicable VSOs.

Medicare and Medicaid for nursing homes in Brooklyn

Medicare in Brooklyn

Medicare provides health care insurance to seniors 65+ and is federally funded. It can cover a limited stay at a skilled nursing facility or nursing home. All expenses are fully covered by Medicare for 20 days and a limited amount is covered for up to 100 days. After the 100-day limit, Medicare is no longer responsible for payments.[04]

Medicare doesn’t cover room and board costs for assisted living in Brooklyn. However, it can cover medical costs — like doctors’ visits, prescriptions, and more — associated with long-term care. Seniors can visit New York State’s consumer guide to community-based long term care to learn more about Medicare Savings Programs< and the Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Program.
