Historic Morristown, a significant location in the American Revolutionary War, offers plenty to entice seniors who seek to settle down on the East Coast. According to U.S Census data from 2019, Morristown is home to 19,261 residents, of whom approximately 13.6% are 65 years of age or older. The town is especially appealing to those who enjoy a four-season climate; Morristown’s average temperature drops to the mid-40s in the winter but rises to the high 80s in the summer. Seniors who make their homes in Morristown have easy access to bustling New York City, which is just about an hour away by train.

According to the Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2020, Morristown seniors should expect to pay an average of $4,957 per month for either homemaker services or home health aide services. Those costs are slightly higher than the national averages of $4,481 per month for homemaker services and $4,576 for home health aide services.

Note: Home care cost data wasn’t available for Morristown, so data for the closest city, New York City, was used.

Morristown Home Care Resources 

Home care services are only one of the pieces needed for seniors to gracefully age in place. There are many services and programs that are low-cost or free, that enable seniors to enjoy an independent lifestyle in the comfort of their own home, such as help with home modifications, meal delivery services, and more. Below, we’ve compiled a few of the most helpful resources in Morristown:

Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program

Address: 45 Clyde Potts Ct., Morristown, NJ 07960
Phone Number: 1 (800) 510-3102

The federally funded LIHEAP helps low-income people pay their cooling and heating bills. Credit received via LIHEAP can be applied directly to the applicant’s electric company account or issued as a check. Applying for LIHEAP also allows Morristown residents to automatically apply for the related Universal Service Fund, which lowers gas and electric bills for those eligible. Income and usage requirements apply.

Weatherization Assistance Program

Address: 95-97 Bassett Hwy, Dover, NJ 07801
Phone Number:  (609) 984-1947

Funded by the U.S. Department of Energy and staffed by local community-based organizations, New Jersey’s Weatherization Assistance Program helps low-income citizens update their homes to increase energy efficiency. Services include caulking and installing new windows and insulation. Available at no cost to those who qualify, the program can help low-income families reduce their energy costs by approximately $400 a year. Senior and disabled residents receive priority when determining eligibility. 

Morristown Meals on Wheels

Address: PO Box 1706, Morristown, NJ 07962
Phone Number: (973) 532-2706

The nonprofit Meals on Wheels organization is staffed by volunteers who bring hot meals directly to homebound people. Any Morristown resident who is not able to cook for herself, has a physical disability or is actively in recovery from illness is eligible to participate in the program. Payments are on a sliding scale and can be waived if necessary.

Morris Habitat for Humanity

Address: 274 S Salem St #100, Randolph, NJ 07869
Phone Number: (973) 891-1934

The local Habitat for Humanity chapter provides aging-in-place support for seniors 62 years of age or older. Organization volunteers, directed by official Habitat for Humanity staff, perform home upgrades that make it easier for seniors to navigate their surroundings. Such upgrades can include widening doorways, installing safety bars in bathrooms and adding accessibility ramps to porches.

Morris County Adult Protective Services

Address: 340 West Hanover Avenue, Morris Township, PO Box 900, Morristown, NJ 07963-0900
Phone number: (973) 326-7282

Morris County’s APS agency works to ensure the safety of vulnerable adults in the area by looking into reports of exploitation, neglect or abuse. Reports should contain a specific allegation and be provided by a person with direct knowledge of the suspected mistreatment. All communications involved in the process are fully confidential. 

Determining Your Loved One’s Need for In-Home Care

Aging can be a difficult process, and loved ones may not always ask for help – oftentimes it’s up to their family to evaluate their need for help around the house. While no two situations are exactly alike, this checklist can help you and your loved ones determine when it’s time to start the search for a home care provider.

Guidelines for Talking About In-Home Care

Handled correctly, however, this process can bring a family together and ensure that everyone’s concerns are addressed. Use this PDF as a starting point to help the conversation stay as positive and productive as possible.
