What to Consider About Assisted Living in Beacon

Considered a distant northern suburb of New York City, Beacon, New York, is a small city along the Hudson River at the base of the Fishkill Mountains. Given its location on the water, Beacon played a role in colonial settlement, early trade, the American Revolution and the Industrial Revolution. Seniors may enjoy visiting the historical society, the arts scene, the farmer's market and the Long Dock Park on the Hudson River.  

About 14 percent of the city's approximately 14,000 residents are 65 and older, and because of this, there are 12 assisted living facilities in the Beacon area. Each of these facilities is licensed, certified and closely regulated by the New York Department of Health.
