New York's Affordable Assisted Living Program

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, to provide seniors with 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.
