There are a ton in Jersey. Why keep her in Manhattan where it will cost 5 times as much and she will live in a cell?

Actually there are some very wonderful assisted living facilities in NYC, especially Manhattan.

No one is kept or lives in a "cell" for assisted living. Granted the accommodations likely become more grand or whatever as one goes up in price, but bottom line is these are places for active living seniors. People who want to experience theater, movies, shows, museums, want to be around the grand kids/family, maybe still working, etc... In other words as OP stated these aren't nursing homes or even rehab places.

Look into:


https://www.lowincomehousing.us/det/...-brown-gardens


It is across the street from me, so a very nice UES neighborhood. Many residents are in wheelchairs or use walkers but many are ambulatory: From what I see, all are senior citizens. The building is well kept. Costs seem to run the gamut from low income subsidized to middle-high income market.

Give them a call, or drop them an e-mail and have a chat about what your mom might need and want...and costs.


And here is a whole shebang more:

So that means two of them are. An alternative reply would be: Thank you for the link.

These are some lovely places. This particular article shows what living can be like for those with deep pockets, and what it can be like for those with hardly any pockets. I wonder if there are a few for people with regular pockets that are just as nice (well, almost).

What might her budget be at that time? No one can give you any meaningful advice without knowing that.

Also, it seems to me that if she needs more help, you can bring in caretakers right where she’s living now.

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.
