10 Best Assisted Living Facilities in Bronx, NY

Situated in the northern portion of New York City, more than 183,000 seniors call the Bronx home. An extensive public transportation network connects the borough not only to the rest of the country’s most populous city, but several other major cities along the east coast. Washington, DC, and Boston, Massachusetts, can be easily accessed via subways and buses.

With more than a third of the city’s population being foreign-born, Bronx seniors enjoy the benefits of diverse cultures, such as a wide variety of culinary destinations, entertainment and cultural attractions. Although the cost of living is higher than the national average, Bronx residents are minutes away from world-renowned museums such as New York’s Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) and The Metropolitan. For individuals who appreciate theatrical arts, the higher cost of goods and services is an acceptable tradeoff for being moments away from Broadway’s critically acclaimed plays and musicals.

The cost of care in the Bronx’s assisted living communities is no exception to the city’s high cost of living. On average, seniors in the Bronx are spending around $6,950 each month for assisted living, more than 70% above the national median and 50% above the state’s monthly average of $4,630

Note: Data for Bronx borough was not available, so information from the entire New York City metro area was used.
