What is Kittay House

Kittay House Senior Apartments.  There’s living. And then there’s being alive.

There are places to live. And then there’s Kittay House. A community of elders that acts like its own social network. Here, residents receive the support they can’t get while living at home: a diet of three healthy meals a day, a dedicated staff to respond to their needs and countless clubs and activities to take part in.


As we age, our housing needs change. That home filled with beautiful memories can become a burden to care for. And when a spouse dies or friends and family move away, it can be lonely. If you need assisted living or nursing home care, there are many options. But what if you are not ready to give up your independence?


For seniors who are still active – working, volunteering, involved in cultural pursuits – there are options. Senior living in the New York area does not need to be limited to assisted living or a nursing home. There is another choice – senior apartments. And the most vibrant, affordable option for senior housing in New York is Kittay House.


Kittay House is designed to ease the burdens of life, so seniors can concentrate on doing the things they love. For those needing additional support, a range of optional health and personal care services are available, right on site at Kittay. Tenants have their choice of apartment styles, along with the convenience of housekeeping services. Apartments are sunny and bright and include senior-friendly kitchens and private bathrooms.

Senior Apartments

It’s more than a place to live. It’s a place to connect.

Kittay House is senior housing built with the belief that community is better. With 295 independent living apartments located in a five-acre garden on the Jewish Home Lifecare campus in the Bronx, seniors live on their own, in a place that supports their independence. With all the activities offered here, Kittay House truly is a social network in and of itself.

Optional Health & Personal Services

Assistance is available when you need it.

Kittay House is not an assisted living facility, which means that Kittay House does not provide medical or direct care services. But optional services from 3rd party providers can be arranged should you need them. Unlike assisted living communities, health and personal care services are strictly on a fee for service basis, so you only pay for what you need, when you need it.
