Assisted Living Program
The Long Island Living Center Assisted Living Program (ALP) offers personalized attentive care to our elderly residents, giving them a homelike atmosphere. Our home is designed to help meet the physical, emotional and social needs of our residents in a safe community environment.
Our Assisted Living Program also includes Nursing Care, 24 hour Certified Home Health aides, Personal Care aides, and Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapy.
We have a staff of carefully chosen professionals who are friendly, courteous, and attentive to your needs. Doctors are available right on the premises, and the on-site nurses are available on a daily basis to provide for any special needs you may have.
The Assisted Living Program is licensed and approved by the Department of Health and billed through Medicaid.
We accept payment from SSA, SSI, and Medicaid in full, with no financial burden to the family.
Our hours of admission are from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. All financial information, resident responsibilities, and general information can be discussed at this time.
Persons eligible for the Assisted Living Program include those people who are medically eligible for placement in a nursing facility, but can be appropriately cared for in an Assisted Living Program. Such individuals could include people for whom a home environment is not suitable in which to live and receive home care services safely.

If you would like to find out which program you qualify for, obtain a physician’s order for a PRI and Screen through your family physician. A PRI and Screen determines the level of care. You may contact your local visiting nurse association or return the physician’s order to our facility and we will have our visiting nurse complete the PRI and Screen.
