    What to Consider About Assisted Living in South Setauket

    Located on the north shore of Long Island, seniors in the South Setauket area have access to serene waterfronts and quaint beaches along Setauket Harbor, Little Bay and the Long Island Sound. When in the mood for larger crowds, an array of restaurants, small-town shops and ferry watching, Port Jefferson is less than 4 miles away. 

    South Setauket is home to more than 2,600 seniors aged 65 or older, and to help provide care for the aging population, two assisted living facilities are within the city. In New York, assisted living facilities are divided into three categories: adults homes, enriched housing programs and assisted living residences. All three are regulated and licensed by the New York Department of Health.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in South Setauket

    • Suffolk County 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.
    • Taxes can be an issue in the state of New York, with the area having a high property and sales tax rate. However, Social Security retirement is tax exempt, and residents can deduct up to $20,000 in income from private pensions and other retirement income.
    • Suffolk County receives an A grade for particle pollution from the American Lung Association, but the area gets a failing grade when it comes to ozone levels. This could make it less comfortable for those living with breathing conditions.
    • The South Setauket area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Stony Brook Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • The overall cost of living in South Setauket is 49 percent higher than the U.S. average and 30 percent higher than the New York average. Much of this is because of the cost of housing, which may not be a concern for seniors in assisted living, but healthcare also runs around 14 percent higher than the national average.
    • Seniors can rest easy knowing that South Setauket is considered a very safe area. Property crime rates are almost 76 percent lower than the U.S. average, and violent crime rates run around 65 percent less than the national mean.
