    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Amityville

    The village of Amityville is located within the town of Babylon, New York, on Long Island. It was once a haven for rich and famous artists as a getaway from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan, but is now a relatively quiet, beach side Long Island community that is ideal for senior residents. Nearly 20 percent of the population is 65 years and older, and there are 22 assisted living facilities in the Amityville area for seniors to choose from, with the New York Department of Health licensing, certifying and regulating each.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Amityville

    • Like much of New York, Amityville has four defined seasons, with winters that dip down into the 20s on average and summers that peak in the 80s. Much of the weather is influenced by the village's proximity to the ocean.

    • The seaside location of Amityville is also beneficial for air quality, though that is offset by the surrounding sprawl of Long Island and pollution that comes from the greater New York City metroplex. Overall, the air quality is considered fair throughout the year.

    • Because of its location on Long Island and close proximity to New York City, the cost of living in Amityville is higher than both the state and national averages. However, much of this is due to higher housing costs and utilities; essentials like groceries, healthcare and transportation are a more in line with national averages.

    • As it’s a small community on Long Island that already has relatively low crime rates, Amityville is a very safe place to live. It’s overall crime rate is about half of the national average and much of this is due to property crime. There is some crime that is due to it’s close proximity to the larger metropolitan area of New York.

    • The town of Babylon, New York which Amityville is located within, provides a number of senior services for the Amityville community, namely transportation to medical appointments in the area, trips to the grocery store and errands to city offices, like the social security office. Appointments must be made one week in advance.

    • The Amityville area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in nearby Mineola.
