Adult Care Facilities
Adult care facilities provide personal care for those who need help with daily tasks due to physical infirmities caused by age or cognitive disabilities. Medical care is not provided; however, supervised medication management is available if needed. Currently, the adult care facilities listed here have met licensing requirements of the New York State Department of Heath. (All rates quoted are subject to change by the individual facility.)

Assisted Living Residence (ALR)
An assisted living residence (ALR) is an adult care facility that has been approved by the New York State Department of Health. ALRs must provide twenty-four hour on-site monitoring along with personal care services. They must also provide daily meals and snacks, case management services, and are required to develop an individualized service plan.

Residential Health Care Facilities
Residential health care facilities provide nursing and medical care. They are often referred to as "nursing homes." Care of the resident is carried out under the orders of an attending physician with a registered nurse on duty 24 hours a day. All of these facilities operate under the strict regulations of the federal government and the New York State Department of Health. An evaluation called a Patient Review Instrument (PRI) is required in order to apply for admission to a residential health care facility. (All rates quoted are subject to change by the individual facility.)

Senior Residences
Senior residences offer some supportive services for those in good health, still active and able to live independently. Most offer housekeeping, dining rooms for congregate meals and planned activities. (All rates quoted are subject to change by the individual facility.)


Contributions are voluntary and confidential and are used to expand the services for which they are received. No one will be denied services because of an inability or unwillingness to contribute.

Services are funded in part by the Administration for Community Living, New York State Office for the Aging and the Rockland County Office for the Aging.
