New York Assisted Living Records & Reports

When choosing assisted living care, consumers are reliant on their state’s regulatory agencies to provide information about communities and their backgrounds. Public access to assisted living records varies greatly state by state. Here is a snapshot of the level of transparency in New York State:

KEY FINDINGS

  • New York has generally accessible assisted living records but was marked down on some criteria, including for inspections that occur on a less than annual basis (every 2 years).
  • New York does not have a searchable database of licensed assisted living communities.

HOW TO ACCESS RECORDS

  • View the state’s “Do Not Refer” list for communities to definitely avoid.
  • Visit New York’s Quarterly Survey Reports page for a list of communities that have been inspected over the quarter and the results of those reports. Quarterly reports are available going back to 2002.
  • View the state’s Adult Care page for a directory of communities.
  • For more in-depth information about a New York assisted living community, contact the local long-term Care ombudsman who covers the area, who can be found by entering a five digit zip code at www.eldercare.gov.
