Page Reviewed / Updated – September 6, 2023

Staten Island is the least populated borough of New York City. Located south of Manhattan between New Jersey and Brooklyn, it is home to 491,000 residents, 17% of whom are aged 65 and over. Although seniors face higher-than-average living costs, there are other benefits to the city they can enjoy. The region is blessed with a high ratio of doctors per capita and quality health care facilities. Staten Island University Hospital is a leading provider of compassionate geriatric care and comprehensive Alzheimer’s disease evaluations. 

The cost of dementia care is typically 25% higher than assisted living because of high staff-to-resident ratios, caregiver training, safety and security measures, facility design and specialized care services. Memory care in Staten Island costs an average of $7,188 per month. This is higher than both the state and national averages of $5,725 and $5,625, respectively.

In Staten Island, several facilities serve people with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Apart from providing a safe environment and various memory care programs, these communities also provide 24-hour care and supervision, allowing residents to maintain an independent and social lifestyle.
