The small town of Westbury in Nassau County, NY, is nestled close to the largest urban region in the United States. The climate of the town and surrounding country is humidly subtropical. This means hot summers and mild weather for most of the year except winter. This thriving suburban village offers quiet living with easy access to shopping, dining, health and recreation locations. Westbury’s notable attractions include lovely historical sites such as the mansion and sculpted garden complex of Old Westbury Gardens. Residents can also enjoy the Westbury Heritage Trail for a bit of historical exploration.

Westbury has a U.S. Census-estimated population of 15,351 residents, of which 17.5% are 65 years of age or older. This is just above the national average of 16.5%.

Because it’s close to Greater New York, Westbury offers relatively fast access to top-quality medical care. The Nassau University Medical Center is nearby. Homemaker and home health aide services in Westbury both cost $4,957 on average. This is a bit more expensive than the national averages of $4,481 and $4,576 for these same respective services according to Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2020 data.

Westbury 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 Westbury:

Meals on Wheels Nassau County

Address: 50 Clinton Street, Suite 107 Hempstead, NY 11550
Phone Number: (516) 539 0150

Meals on Wheels of Nassau County is administered with support from the county office on aging by the EAC Network and offers daily nutritious meal service to homebound elderly individuals throughout the county, including Westbury Village. The service is open to all elderly individuals 60 or older who cannot manage their own cooking or leave their homes to eat elsewhere.

New York Weatherization Assistance Program

Address: 2100 Middle Country RD Suite 300, Centereach, NY 11720
Phone Number: (631) 471-1215

New York’s Weatherization Assistance Program is funded by the state government and federal grants but offered locally through county-level affiliates. In Nassau County, this is the Community Development Corporation of Long Island, Inc. Preference for access to this program is given to low-income families and elderly households. Seniors receiving Supplemental Security Income are automatically eligible. Otherwise, a maximum household income of $31,318 for a one-person home and $40,954 for a two-person home is required. Weatherization is done at no cost for rented or owned homes.

Expanded In-Home Services for the Elderly Program

Address: 75 East Walnut Street, Long Beach, NY 11561
Phone Number: (516) 992-0081

The EISEP program is funded by the Nassau County Office for the Aging and New York State Office for the Aging along with donations from private individuals. This regional initiative offers assistance to elderly residents of the county who don’t qualify for other programs provided directly by regional and state government offices. EISEP’s case managers first complete a full case assessment of elderly applicants. Services provided once an applicant joins include in-home assistance, meal service, emergency response and others. Seniors may apply regardless of their income level but a cost-share system is in effect that charges zero or full-price fees depending on the cost of services provided and income. 

Senior Citizens of Westbury Center

Address: 348 Post Ave, Westbury, NY 11590
Phone Number: (516) 334-5560

The Senior Citizens of Westbury organization is located at the Village of Westbury Community Center and offers seniors residing in the town a wealth of social and personal support services. These include a hot lunch program that’s available five days a week for a requested donation of $3, a local mini-bus scheduled transportation service, adult education programs, recreational classes, group excursions and basic free health screening services.

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 – oftentimes 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.
