    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Kew Gardens

    Seniors who enjoy spending time outdoors can find nature in Kew Gardens, with Forest Park located on the neighborhood's western border. Kew Gardens is part of Queens Borough where 15 percent of the population is aged 65 and older. There are 26 assisted living facilities catering to seniors in the area which are regulated by the New York State Department of Health. They're referred to as Adult Care Facilities or Assisted Living Residences depending on the license they hold.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Kew Gardens

    • New York City, including Kew Gardens, 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.
    • The Kew Gardens area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • The MTA provides public transport to people in Kew Gardens and riders aged 65 and over can apply for a Reduced-Fare MetroCard that gives a discount on fares. Some seniors may also be eligible for Access-A-Ride, a service for people who have difficulty using the fixed-route service.
    • There is plenty of arts and culture close to Kew Gardens for seniors to enjoy. Queens is known for its flourishing arts scene with venues like the Sculpture Center offering interesting cultural experiences. Some assisted living facilities may offer trips into New York City to visit the Museum of Modern Art or see a Broadway show.
    • Social Security Income is not taxable in New York. Other forms of retirement income are taxable, but the state offers a sizable deduction for people aged 60 and over. The average sales tax in New York is among the highest in the country, but  groceries and medications are exempt, which can help seniors who are on a fixed income. 
    • The Borough of Queens, including Kew Gardens, has mixed air quality. The borough received an A grade for 24-hour particle pollution in the State of the Air 2018 report, but ozone pollution received a failing grade. Seniors with respiratory illnesses may wish to investigate impacts this may have on their health.
