At Jefferson’s Ferry, residents and their families enjoy peace of mind knowing that should the need arise, they can get the care they need, when they need it, where they want to be, near their spouse and friends, and in some cases even under the same roof. Even better, our Lifecare promise means residents and their families don’t have to worry about paying higher monthly fees when they access additional care. We also offer residents financial flexibility and estate preservation advantages of a choice of 90% Refundable or Traditional declining refund Entrance Fee.

Jefferson’s Ferry is located in South Setauket surrounded by the picturesque and historic Long Island communities of Port Jefferson and Stony Brook with elegant and eclectic dining venues, a renowned university, and quaint shops. We are only minutes from three highly regarded hospitals, giving you access to world-class health care. We are also fortunate to be within an easy drive of scenic Long Island wine country, the beautiful beaches of The Hamptons, Sag Harbor and Montauk…and yet we are only 55 miles from the excitement and culture of Manhattan.

In the ten years since Jefferson’s Ferry opened, we have earned the reputation of being Long Island’s premier retirement community by providing the highest quality lifestyle, services and healthcare to all residents. To quote a resident of ten years “It is a good idea to think and act ahead. Making a decision to move was a good investment for our future and it’s a great place to live. The time to do it is now, while you can truly enjoy the wonderful lifestyle we all enjoy every day. I can’t imagine a better place to live.”
