According to Genworth’s 2018 Cost of Care study, at a monthly average cost of $5,916, assisted living in New York City is the highest in the state. It’s also significantly higher than both the national ($4,000) and state ($4,185) averages. In New York State, city size isn’t commensurate with cost. For instance, smaller cities, such as Kingston ($4,100), are much closer to the state average, while others, including Ithaca, ($5,000), are more expensive. Overall, assisted living in cities across the state is more expensive than in rural areas.

The costs for senior care depend heavily upon the degree of care and the location. In New York, the cost for nursing home care is more than double the cost for assisted living and nearly three times the cost of home health care. Assisted living is moderately more expensive than homemaker services and home health aides, yet it does contain the costs associated with staying at home, such as rent and upkeep. When considering options, remember that these expenses — including food, environmental modifications and assistive technology — all need to be factored into the overall cost of home health care.
