New York is not just New York City, despite what the rest of the world may think. In fact, much of the state is rural country dotted with farms, small communities and national parks. And it’s spread out. To get from Manhattan to Massena in the “North Country” will take you over seven hours.
And that’s the beauty of this state. You can live the quiet country life in Upstate or experience the energy and frenetic pace of the Big Apple. And in between, there are smaller cities that can give you a little of both such as Rochester and the Finger Lakes area.
New York assisted living costs are highly dependent on your local market. As any New York City resident can tell you, rent is astronomical. Live in any of the smaller cities or towns upstate and the price drops considerably. According to a Genworth Financial survey, the average cost for a one-bedroom in a New York assisted living facility is $3,660 a month. In Manhattan, the average cost is $4,500. Go up to Rochester and it’s only $3,700.
If you’re looking into the future, say 10 years from now, the costs are expected to balloon: $5,961 for the state average; $7,330 in Manhattan; $6,027 in Rochester. Here some costs for facilities other than New York assisted living. A private room in a nursing home averages $327 a day across the state, while a semi-private averages $315. The services of a home health aide at 44 hours a week average $48,048 yearly.
