    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Bay Shore

    Bay Shore, New York, is located in Suffolk County on Long Island. The city is home to Captree State Park, a lovely location for fishing, boating, and spending time outdoors. The population of Bay Shore is 30,000, with 11% being seniors aged 65 and older. This is a demographic that will probably need housing and care in assisted living communities as they age. To accommodate these individuals, Bay Shore has two assisted living facilities, with 12 more in nearby communities. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Bay Shore

    • The overall cost of living in Bay Shore is 129 compared to the U.S. baseline of 100. While grocery costs and healthcare, both important to seniors in assisted living, are within a few points of the national average, the higher cost of housing, 170 compared to 100, raises the overall cost of living. This may mean that facilities charge more due to higher operating costs. 
    • Income derived from Social Security is not subject to New York state income tax, which may be helpful to seniors on a budget. In addition, income from private pensions or other retirement accounts is tax exempt up to $20,000. 
    • The Bay Shore area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Southside Hospital Northwell Health, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Winters in Bay Shore are cold, with plenty of snow, while summers are warm and balmy, with breezes from the Atlantic Ocean to cool residents. Seniors sensitive to the cold may be uncomfortable here. 
    • Bay Shore, 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.
    • Overall crime rates for both property crimes and violent crimes are lower in Bay Shore than the rest of the nation, although seniors are still advised to use caution when venturing into New York City proper.
