Staten Island, located in Richmond County, is New York’s southernmost borough and is often called the Borough of Parks. Staten Island is an ideal location for seniors because they can roam the city alone or with assistance — the borough boasts some of the loveliest parks in New York City. For seniors who enjoy exploring historical sites, a trip on one of Staten Island’s 21 new bus routes can let them visit historic Richmond Town or the National Lighthouse Museum. The free Staten Island Ferry, which runs from St. George to Manhattan every 30 minutes, offers quick, easy options for seniors who want a safe, low-cost way to explore New York City. Staten Island is home to 476,143 people, with 16.7% aged 65 or older.

According to the 2019 Genworth Cost of Care Survey, homemaker and home health aide services in Staten Island both average to $4,767 a month, slightly higher than the national average of $4,290 and $4,385 a month, respectively.

Note: Home care cost data was not available for Staten Island, so data for the closest city, New York, was used.

Staten Island Home Care Resources 

Home care services are only one of the pieces needed for seniors to gracefully age in place. There are many services and programs that are low-cost or free, that enable seniors to enjoy an independent lifestyle in the comfort of their own home, such as help with home modifications, meal delivery services, and more. Below, we’ve compiled a few of the most helpful resources in Staten Island:

Home Repair and Safety Audit Programs

This program is provided with lower interest rates to New Yorkers who cannot qualify for traditional financing. NYSERDA’s funding is available to individuals who pay into the New York System Benefits Charge on their utility bills.

Weatherization Assistance Program

Determining Your Loved One’s Need for In-Home Care

Aging can be a difficult process, and loved ones may not always ask for help – often times it’s up to their family to evaluate their need for help around the house. While no two situations are exactly alike, this checklist can help you and your loved ones determine when it’s time to start the search for a home care provider.


Guidelines for Talking About In-Home Care

If you’ve determined that your loved one needs the assistance of a care provider in their home, it may be time for a difficult conversation. Handled correctly, however, this process can bring a family together and ensure that everyone’s concerns are addressed. Use this PDF as a starting point to help the conversation stay as positive and productive as possible.
