Nassau County 55+ Communities
Nassau County, NY 55+ Communities
About Nassau County, NY 55+ Communities…
Many hamlets and villages provide senior living communities for their residents aged 55 and above, and Nassau County alone has 48 active adult communities. Thirty of these communities are targeted to people aged 62 and up, and some are included in the Golden Age Housing program and offer less expensive housing. The rest, including a Life Plan Community also known as a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), require a lower minimum age of 55.
Condos, townhomes and single-family homes that are primarily one-floor properties without stairs, which a number of 55 and over desire, are generally the options offered in these Nassau County 55+ communities. Two-bedroom condos, three-bedroom condos, homes with a garage and condos with a basement are just some of the features offered in the wide array of options in the property inventory.
While many of these developments are modest and have comfortable homes, priced reasonably, in well-kept neighborhoods with limited amenities, others are sprawling complexes with more impressive two-bedroom homes in a country club setting that offer resort-style living. About 13 of these adult housing developments feature gated communities for enhanced privacy and security, while about 25 have clubhouses for their residents’ recreational and leisure activities.
Most communal amenities, such as a fitness center, spa, game rooms and a variety of other facilities, are located in the clubhouses, and their use is often included in the monthly HOA dues. There are outdoor or indoor pools in 21 of these adult communities and tennis courts in six of them. Without having to move to a different facility, the Life Plan community in Port Jefferson offers single-level apartments for independent living, assisted living and memory care as well as supportive services.
Nassau County has several housing options to offer the adult population that helped develop its towns and villages, whether to downsize, live almost maintenance-free, be in the company of similarly aged folks or all of the above.
