    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Babylon

    Babylon is located in Suffolk County, on Long Island, New York. The community is on the Atlantic Coast, a lovely place for seniors who enjoy the outdoors to stroll along the shore, fish or shop in the quaint downtown area. Its population is 213,000, 14% of whom are seniors aged 65 and older. As these seniors age, those who need accommodations in an assisted living facility can choose from two in Babylon and 12 others that are nearby. 

    Assisted living communities in Babylon are licensed and regulated by the New York State Office for the Aging. These regulations include staff certification and access to nursing care depending on the residents' needs. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Babylon

    • Seniors in Babylon, as in all of New York, are not taxed by the state on income derived from Social Security benefits, which may be helpful to those on a budget. Retirement account withdrawals under $20,000 per year are also state tax exempt. 
    • The climate in Babylon includes warm summers, with cool breezes from the Atlantic Ocean and cold, snowy winters. Seniors sensitive to high heat may find relief living here. 
    • The Manlius area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Cost of living in the U.S. starts at a baseline of 100. In Babylon, the overall cost of living is 143, mainly due to high housing costs which are 215 compared to the national average of 100. Higher housing expenses may increase the cost of operations for assisted living facilities and the fees for residents, which is something that some seniors may need to consider. 
    • Crime rates in Babylon are slightly higher than the national average. Property crimes, including theft, are on par with the national average of 35 out of 100, while violent crimes are 27, compared to the national average of 23. Crime rates are based on a scale of 1 to 100, with 1 being the safest. 
    • Babylon, as part of Suffolk County, is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning that its elected leadership “has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages,” according to AARP.
