Long Island, which is comprised of Nassau and Suffolk Counties, is located in the northeastern region of New York. It's home to almost 3 million people, over 17% of whom are seniors aged 65 and older. The region is well-suited to active seniors, offering a variety of arts and culture attractions, sporting events and outdoor amenities. Temperatures here range from 25 to 82 degrees.

The island has a high overall cost of living, particularly the region within Nassau County. Here, living expenses are almost 80% higher than the U.S. average and 50% more than the state average. Suffolk County is slightly more affordable at 40% higher than the national average and 10% more than the state average, but it may still be cost-prohibitive for seniors with tight budgets. Fortunately, Social Security benefits are tax-exempt in New York, and a large deduction is available for other types of retirement income. This may help some seniors afford the relatively high cost of care.

Long Island is an expensive place for senior care. Average monthly assisted living expenses are $6,950 per month compared to the statewide average of $4,630 and the national average of $4,051.
