What to Consider About Assisted Living in Flushing

Senior sports fans are close to the action in Flushing as the neighborhood is home to both the US Open and the New York Mets. Flushing and nearby neighborhoods are also home to 59 assisted living facilities offering care to seniors who are mostly independent but need help with some day-to-day activities.

These facilities are licensed and monitored by the New York State Department of Health and are known as Assisted Living Residences (ALRs) or Adult Care Facilities (ACFs), based on the license they hold. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Flushing

  • The Flushing area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Flushing Hospital Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) has buses and trains that go through Flushing. Seniors aged 65 and older are eligible for reduced fares and may be able to access paratransit services that provide a demand-response service for people unable to use the fixed routes.
  • Flushing has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Jewish Association Serving the Aging, an organization that provides advocacy, advice and services to seniors in New York City as well as more than three senior centers.
  • Flushing Town Hall is home to Flushing Council on Culture and the Arts, an organization that brings global arts to the Flushing Community. Seniors who enjoy art and culture can see performances and exhibitions at the venue.
  • Social Security Income and some public pensions are not subject to state income tax in New York. Other sources of retirement income are taxable, but a sizable deduction is available to taxpayers aged 60 and older. This can help seniors reduce their tax bill and put more money towards their assisted living budget.
  • New York City, including Flushing, 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.
