While our community is priced competitively, we understand that senior care can be a costly investment. Seniors often struggle to afford the quality of assistance they need and deserve. We offer New York’s Affordable Assisted-Living Program, which is certified to provide Medicaid-funded home-care services and ensure seniors have the right support, delaying or preventing the need for admission to a nursing home. Whether just moving in or a longtime resident, we help our residents afford quality assistance upon meeting state requirements.

The Eliot at New Rochelle team can’t be beat. I had to make the hard choice to send my mother to a care home, and I could not have picked a better place. She was well taken care of, and I cannot recommend the Eliot enough.

I love living here. The Eliot makes sure I always get my medication on time and plenty of fresh air and delicious food. All of the staff members are lovely. I am very impressed with the quality of life here, what with it being so affordable, as they make sure to work within your budget. I’ve made many friends here. Thank you, Eliot of New Rochelle.

From the second I walked into the home, I knew Mom would be in good hands. Between all of their amenities and helpful staff, we knew this would be the place we’d call home for Mom. With COVID-19, it’s been difficult for everyone, but The Eliot staff makes sure that all residents are well taken care of and stimulated.  Whenever I speak to my mother, she tells me all about her day and how much she loves the Eliot at New Rochelle and all of her new friends.
