Senior Housing and Assisted Living on the North Shore

The North Shore of Long Island includes parts of both Nassau and Suffolk Counties. It has great variances in wealth and income, and the Independent Living communities reflect that range. The cost of Independent Living on Long Island varies from less than $4,000 to over $10,000 per month. This is higher than the national median of $2,500. Assisted Living communities, too, have a wide range of monthly costs - from $3,500 to $12,000 or more per month, depending on the specific facility and the level of care required. Memory Care, which is Assisted Living specifically tailored for people with Alzheimers and other types of dementia, starts at around $6,500 per month and can cost $10,000 per month, again depending on the specific community and the range of care required. While there are not great differences in price between that North Shore and the South Shore, generally slightly lower prices are to be found in Suffolk County, vs Nassau County.

The Residences at Plainview are true Independent Living, ideal for seniors who either need no assistance with the Activities of Daily Living or who want to organize their own care and assistance. This is one of only about 12 Independent Living communities on all of Long Island. The apartments come with a full kitchen, and the community was completely renovated just two years ago.

Located in the vibrant Long Island community of Plainview, this community offers lifestyle choices for independent seniors more closely associated with resort-style living. With indoor and outdoor pools, a fully equipped exercise facility, on-site restaurant with all three meals included, and concierge services, independent living never looked or felt so good. Residents like the concierge services, available for simple activities like errands and complex tasks like recovery from a medical procedure.

Orchard Estate is a lovely, smaller Community with both Assisted Living and Memory Care services available. One highlight of the community is All Day Dining - Once the kitchen opens, it doesn’t close until after the dinner hour. Residents are free to eat meals when they want and don’t have to restrict themselves to specific meal times. This community is just two years old, and is owned by the prestigious Benchmark company. Care here is considered top notch, and activities include music, crafts, art, excursions, exercise classes, and theme parties.

Like most Assisted Living communities, one of the greatest benefits of living at Orchard Estate is never having to do laundry, cook, schedule or drive to a doctor’s appointment again. We also provide the space and amenities so our residents can focus on what matters most—enjoying a social hour with friends in the bistro or a good book in front of our opulent fireplace.
