Types of Assisted Living in New York

New York assisted living communities offer a wide spectrum of services, whether more personal with assistance in daily activities or functions, or more just a setting where retirees can live in an apartment-style complex with each other, while not having to worry about making meals on a daily basis or things of that nature.

The personal care services may help with 24-hour supervision, assistance with bathing and grooming, as well as offering regularly scheduled programs. It is a far safer setting for a loved one compared to in-home care, plus it takes some of the household chores and workload off the family.

New York assisted living types include small and large buildings, with potentially capped number of residents depending on if you prefer a smaller, more intimate setting or a large senior living complex where you can make as many friends as possible.
