What to Consider About Assisted Living in Jericho

Jericho, New York, was originally part of the Robert Williams Plantation in the 1600s, but today, it's a thriving city of more than 13,500 people. Jericho has two assisted living facilities and another 22 in the surrounding area to help provide care for the 14 percent of the population aged 65 years or older.

The New York Department of Health regulates all assisted living facilities in Jericho and the rest of the state. These facilities are divided into three categories depending on the level of care provided: assisted living residences, enriched housing programs and adult homes (listed from highest level of care to lowest level).

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Jericho

  • Jericho has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Syosset.
  • Property taxes and sales taxes are fairly high in the state of New York. However, Social Security income is exempt, and there is a deduction available to seniors for up to $20,000 for other forms of retirement income. This may make the state more budget friendly.
  • Seniors looking for a safe town may be happy to know that Jericho delivers better-than-average safety. Violent crime rates run about 65 percent less than the national average, and property crimes are also less frequent, coming in at 75 percent lower rates than the U.S. average. 
  • As with the rest of the state, the weather in Jericho can be variable and may be an issue for seniors dealing with conditions like arthritis or seasonal affective disorder. Summer highs hover around the low 80s, but winter lows are often below freezing.
  • The cost of living in Jericho could be a concern for seniors on fixed budget or those trying to stretch their retirement income. Overall costs run about 79 percent higher than the U.S. average. Housing, which may not be a concern for those entering assisted living, runs about 226 percent higher than the rest of the country, but healthcare is also 14 percent higher, which could increase assisted living costs.
  • Jericho is connected to the Naussau County bus system to help them get to local businesses and the surrounding areas.
