Enhanced Assisted Living

Enhanced Assisted Living—a great way to age in place, while saving on costs

In New York State, enhanced assisted living residences require an additional certification from the New York State Department of Health that permits assisted living residents to “age in place.” Residents receive a substantially higher level of care than provided in traditional assisted living, bridging the gap between assisted living and a skilled nursing facility. Services may include diabetic management, physical assistance with ambulation and transfers, chronic incontinence management, and assistance with other complex medical issues and equipment. At Legacy at Grande ‘Vie, our enhanced assisted living program provides residents with professional services at less than half the cost of a nursing home.
