Raves about our care

Twelve years ago, I took 3 weeks off from my job in California, flew to New York, and searched for a senior home for my Mom. I looked in Westchester, Bronx and Manhattan. Kittay was the only place I found that appeared to be extremely well run and maintained, relatively affordable, and was also a great value.

It turned out to be a home run. It has been a fantastic home for my Mom all this time. She has flourished. I have never seen her so happy, ever, in my life.

From my first visit to Kittay, I could tell this is a well-run, professional and most of all, caring environment. Every staff member I have come across has been cheerful, upbeat, and ready to help.

My mother has been living there since 2015. I had been feeling so overwhelmed in preparation. These people “rolled out the red carpet” for both my Mom and me, and made a major transition much smoother than expected.

- Daughter of Mary S.

I moved from Minnesota to New York for a year to find my dad a semi-independent living facility where he would get the care he needed. There were several things that were important to me: First, he needed to feel comfortable and at home. Second, I needed to know that he would be taken care of.

I am very pleased with the care and attention he has received at Kittay and after 6 years, I am convinced more than ever that my decision was the correct one.
