    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lake Ronkonkoma

    Lake Ronkonkoma sits near Long Island on the outskirts of New York City. It's a small census-designated place in New York with about 20,000 residents, 15% of whom are aged 65 and older. The area is home to 33 assisted living facilities, three of which are located directly in Lake Ronkonkoma. 

    In Lake Ronkonkoma and throughout the state of New York, assisted living facilities are officially known as either assisted living residences or enhanced assisted living residences, depending on the level of care they provide. All assisted living in the state is monitored and regulated by the New York State Department of Health

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lake Ronkonkoma

    • The state of New York is partially tax-friendly for senior citizens, which may make it easier for seniors living in Lake Ronkonkoma to pay for the cost of assisted living. While pension and retirement accounts are subject to tax deductions, all Social Security income is exempt from income tax. 
    • The Lake Ronkonkoma area is home to world-class medical facilities such as the Long Island Community Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 
    • The overall cost of living in Lake Ronkonkoma is almost 35% above the national average; however, this can mostly be attributed to the high cost of housing, which is more than 85% above the national average. Seniors in the area who require assisted living may find that the high cost of living in Lake Ronkonkoma has little effect on the cost of assisted living.
    • Crime rates in Lake Ronkonkoma are substantially lower than in the average U.S. city. Even so, it's always wise for seniors to inquire about security when considering assisted living facilities, even in relatively safe areas. 
    • Lake Ronkonkoma has above-average levels of precipitation throughout the year. A combined total of 75 inches of rain and snow falls in the city each year. This may mean there is less opportunity for senior citizens to enjoy outdoor activities such as walking and gardening. 
    • The air quality in Lake Ronkonkoma and throughout Suffolk County has received a passing grade from the American Lung Association. That means that seniors living in the area can breathe the air with little concern for the effects it may have on their health.
