That might be your best bet actually, because it seems to me that assisted living doesn’t really give that much assistance, judging by what a friend went through recently with her mom.

She ended up paying for assisted living and also 24-hour care. I think she would have been better off just keeping her mom at home, which was an apartment in the same building my friend lives in, and hiring caregivers.

Also, it seems to me that the social worker at your mom’s current residence will be able to help with future needs.

All fair points macnyc....As of right now shes totally fine, but wanted to post just to see if anyone knew of a specific assisted living place they really liked....just preliminary planning on my end as I'm pretty much the only point person in the family for her.....thanks...

By statue assisted living places are just that; for active seniors who do *not* require any sort of skilled nursing care. People can (and have been) thrown out of assisted living places and put in nursing homes or other arrangements when their health deteriorated to a point they needed some sort of nursing care.

Many places will have assisted living, skilled nursing (nursing home) and or memory care all in same building/complex. Others offer just one service and so......

Assisted living in NYC is expensive for same reasons other housing cost so much here; land and development costs are what they are. On top there comes costs for staffing and so forth.

There are a few new assisted living places going up in Manhattan IIRC, but overall developers aren't bringing huge amounts of product (relative to need) to market. Again land and other costs are just too high and that means pricing won't be cheap.

I'm guessing you'd get better answers talking to an organization that specifically helps seniors.

I actually tried this when trying to find a place for my dad. They were okay. It was awhile ago so I don't know how good they are now.
