What to Consider About Assisted Living in White Plains

The New York Department of Health regulates assisted living facilities in White Plains and the rest of the state. It defines the level of care these facilities provide and enforces specific guidelines on resident intake and retention policies, staffing and building requirements. It also maintains a directory of all licensed assisted living facilities in the state.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in White Plains

  • The cost of living in White Plains is relatively high, which may be a consideration for seniors with lower incomes. On a 100-point scale based on national living costs, White Plains scores 153.8 versus the New York score of 121.5. Housing costs are more than double the national average, but residents also pay more for groceries, utilities and transportation. To help qualified seniors cover assisted living expenses, New York funds the Assisted Living Program.
  • Seniors in White Plains can claim a deduction of up to $20,000 to reduce what they own in state income taxes for income from private pensions and retirement accounts. Additionally, the state doesn’t tax Social Security benefits regardless of the individual’s income bracket. This may make long-term care more affordable for some seniors.

  • White Plains Hospital is located in the city proper, giving residents access to a state-of-the-art cardiac surgery program, emergency services, and acute and preventative care.
