Urban retirees in this city that never sleeps want the opportunity to live in the neighborhood they have always loved, but with extra support and assistance from a team of caregivers. Thanks to an amazing supply of luxury assisted living in New York neighborhoods, you can get that extra support and peace of mind without leaving the city.
