    Home Care for Seniors in Astoria

    Astoria is a residential riverfront community on the East River in one of the oldest neighborhoods in Queens. Home to New York's largest public park and swimming pool, Astoria is a place where seniors can stroll under the canopies of tree-lined streets that have hardly changed since the 1920s.

    It's not surprising that around 21% of Astoria's 79,000 people are seniors aged 65 and over. This part of Queens has vintage houses some families have continuously occupied for nearly a century, as well as multiple senior centers and community events for seniors who've made Astoria the unique place it has been since Prohibition.

    At Caring.com, we've compiled a comprehensive directory of every home care provider in the Astoria area - complete with community descriptions, amenities, health services provided, and reviews from families who've actually used the service. In addition to our in-depth provider listings, we've compiled a list of resources to help seniors and their families access all the tools they need to age in place safely and gracefully.

    Seniors in Astoria pay $4,576 a month for homemaker services and $4,767 for home health aides, on average, according to the 2018 Genworth Cost of Care Survey. This is the general rate for New York City, which is somewhat higher than the national average for similar types of care. Seniors across the rest of the country pay an average monthly cost of $4,004 for homemaker assistance and $4,195 a month for home health workers.

    These rates work out to $21 an hour for homemakers and $22 an hour for home health aides nationally, while seniors in Astoria pay $24 an hour for the former and $25 an hour for the latter level of care.

    Astoria Home Care Resources

    Seniors in Astoria have access to a host of programs and services that enable independence and aging in place, while maintaining the highest possible quality of life. Below, we've compiled a few of the most helpful resources:

    Emergency Assistance for Adults (EAA)

    150 Greenwich Street

    Commissioner - 42nd floor

    New York, NY 10007

    (718) 557-1399

    Seniors in Astoria can get emergency help with rent, utility bills and nutritional support through the New York City Human Resources Administration (HRA), which administers the Emergency Assistance for Adults program. The program is open to seniors aged 62 and over, as well as all adults with disabilities and a financial need for help.

    Elderly Pharmaceutical Insurance Coverage Program (EPIC)

    EPIC
    P.O. Box 15018
    Albany, NY 12212-5018

    (800) 332-3742

    Astoria seniors who have trouble paying for all their prescription drugs can get supplemental support from EPIC. This program provides a subsidy for necessary medication for seniors in Astoria aged 65 and over who meet the city's low-income and asset thresholds. Applications can be requested by phone or filled out online at the program's website.

    Community Advisory Program for the Elderly (C.A.P.E.)

    193-10 Peck Avenue
    Fresh Meadows, NY 11365

    (718) 224-0566

    C.A.P.E. helps seniors in Astoria, Flushing, Steinway, Jamaica and other Queens neighborhoods find and make use of mental and emotional health services at no cost. C.A.P.E. organizes support groups and one-on-one therapy for seniors and family members dealing with bereavement and the emotional toll of living alone in the city. The program operates a free transportation service for seniors who need a ride to the C.A.P.E. office in Fresh Meadows.

    Parker Institute

    271-11 76th Avenue
    New Hyde Park, NY 11040
    (718) 289-2100

    Seniors in Astoria who need adult day care, respite care or home health visits, including house calls from a doctor, can sign up for medical support from the Parker Institute. Applicants must have a medical need for the services they apply for, which may be provided at a discount based on the seniors' ability to pay.

    Senior Citizen Rent Increase Exemption (SCRIE)

    66 John Street, 3rd Floor,

    New York, NY

    3-1-1

    The city of New York operates the Senior Citizen Rent Increase Exemption (SCRIE) office to ensure fair and affordable housing for Astoria seniors. Seniors aged 62 and over who live in rent-controlled or stabilized apartments or single-family homes and pay at least one-third of their monthly income on rent can appeal to the SCRIE office to prevent potentially unlawful rent increases. To be eligible for help from SCRIE, seniors must earn less than $29,000 a year from all income sources combined.
