Assisted Living in Long Island, NY

Long Island is a large island in northeast New York State that contains both the Brooklynn and Queens boroughs as well as Nassau and Suffolk counties. Better known simply as “The Island”, native New Yorkers only consider Nassau and Suffolk county to be a part of Long Island while Brooklyn and Queens makeup parts of New York City. In terms of population density, Long Island has an impressive population of nearly eight million (i.e. 39% of New York State’s total population). The island offers a unique combination of coastal beaches, natural prairies, and small hamlets as well as large areas of preserved pine forest. In general, the island has hot, humid summers and mild, snowy winters with some risk for hurricanes. The sea breezes provide relief from moderate summer temperatures yet contributes to mild rainstorms and snowfall throughout the year.

Nassau and Suffolk county are recognized as having some of the most affluent communities in the state. Found predominantly along the coast, expensive island communities attract large numbers of tourists while the countryside features vineyards that are reachable by train. Suffolk county is three times the size of Nassau county, offering rural regions in addition to beaches, parks, museums, and theaters. Common entertainment destinations on the island include the Hamptons, historic Hollywood estates, and various lighthouses. Convenient transportation is a major feature of Long Island with trains and taxis that can take you nearly anywhere you need to go. The area itself contains two major airports, JFK International and LaGuardia Airport, making it easy for visitors to come from around the world. These airports also tend to offer the most affordable deals and prices as well as direct-flight vacation packages.

Forbes named Nassau county #2 in the Top Places to Grow Old in the United States. Not only do seniors over the age of 65 represent 15% of the county’s population, the median income for seniors is a reasonable $48,000 a year. The average cost of assisted living in New York is $5,000 a month, though the state offers several programs to defer costs (ex. the Managed Long Term Care Waiver and the Assisted Living Program). The western region has become known as the most ethnically and culturally diverse areas in the United States. Diversity allows socialization regardless of cultural preferences, which is reflected in the vast number of senior communities, teams, events, groups, and clubs found throughout the area. Also, unlike other states, New York does not tax the first $20,000 of yearly IRA withdrawals, making it financially favorable in terms of retirement budgeting. Despite high costs and dense populations, Long Island is a highly sought out by retirees looking for access to natural beauty, cultural diversity, gorgeous beaches, and ease of transportation.
