What to Consider About Assisted Living in Franklin Square

The New York State Department of Health licenses all assisted living facilities in the state, including those in Franklin Square. This department outlines the scope and level of care facilities provide and enforces minimum standards for care planning, staffing and services. It also operates the Adult Care Facility Centralized Complaint Intake Program, which fields and investigates complaints regarding care.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Franklin Square

  • Although there isn’t a hospital in Franklin Square, over a dozen major medical facilities sit within a 5-mile radius, including Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New Hyde Park and Mercy Medical Center in Rockville Centre. These hospitals provide a full range of inpatient and outpatient services, along with telemedicine services for convenient access to care.
  • Nassau County, where Franklin Square is located, is among the healthiest counties in the state and ranks 3rd overall for health factors and outcomes. It sits in the top 75-100th percentile for variables such as the high life expectancy of 81.9 years, which surpasses the state norm of 80.3 and the national average of 78.5.
  • Living in Franklin Square is relatively expensive and may be prohibitive for seniors with limited resources. Although food costs 38% below the national norm and health care expenses run 21% lower than average, residents spend about 25% more on housing. Altogether, the cost of living in this community exceeds the national average by 73%. Fortunately, New York funds the Assisted Living Program, which helps income-qualified individuals pay for long-term care expenses.
  • Franklin Square serves as one of the most favorable places in the nation for seniors to live, earning it a score of 63 on the AARP Livability Index. Minimal crime, wide diversity in destinations and a high walkability score of 15.52 versus 6.17 nationally promote seniors’ independence, and the low preventable hospitalization rate of 32.2 compared to the nation’s 38.2 indicates good health outcomes.
  • New York’s state income taxes are relatively high, with rates of up to 10.90% for top earners. However, the state exempts all Social Security benefits and government pension income from taxation, and it has a $20,000 deduction to reduce what seniors owe on other earnings.
  • Summers in Franklin Square are generally warm and humid with temperatures between 74-83 degrees Fahrenheit and muggy conditions 14% of the time. During the winter, daytime temperatures fall between 39-47 degrees Fahrenheit and nighttime lows dip to 27 degrees Fahrenheit. To accommodate a range of temperature preferences, assisted living facilities offer indoor and outdoor activities throughout the year.
