When A Senior Needs Assisted Living in New York

Time for assisted livingAssisted living in New York is the best option when a senior you love is living in another city or cannot live with you and you must keep living and working in New York.  I know that we all wish that we could be there full time for our seniors when they have a need, but the truth of the matter is that in most situations the adult children must continue to work and manage their own lives in addition to caring for a senior aged loved one.  For this reason assisted living is an amazing option for those adults with parents who are not able to stay at home safely while people are out of the house.  It is a difficult decision to determine when Mom or Dad should begin living in an assisted living facility.

New York City Assisted Living

Most New York City assisted living communities charge an application or community fee to new residents. This is a relatively new concept, but it’s become the norm. The community fee is usually a onetime payment that covers the administrative cost of moving into the community, the cost of refurbishing the room, and maintenance for the common areas. How exactly the money is used depends on the community — you should ask for specifics before signing an agreement.
