What to Consider About Assisted Living in Edison

The township of Edison, New Jersey, is a one-hour drive away from New York City, which is great for seniors who might enjoy a day out in the Big Apple. Around 14 percent of the population of Edison is aged 65 or over, and a percentage of them may require support with their day-to-day lives. Assisted living facilities help provide support for seniors. There are 15 of these communities in and around the Edison area, with three in the township itself and 12 in nearby communities such as East Brunswick and Somerset. All of these communities are regulated by the State of New Jersey Department of Health.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Edison

  • The township of Edison, New Jersey, is steeped in culture and history. There is a historical society that seeks to preserve its history, and also an arts society. Famous for being the location where Thomas Edison created hundreds of his inventions, The Thomas Edison Center at Menlo Park may be of interest to seniors wishing to learn about one of the most famous inventors of all time. 
  • Edison has an array of community resources for seniors, including Edison Senior Services, an organization that provides a range of services including arts and crafts and exercise groups, as well as seven other senior centers.
  • The Edison area is home to world-class medical facilities, including the Hackensack Meridian Health JFK Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 
  • The cost of living in the Edison area is almost 50 percent more expensive than the national average. However, healthcare in this area can be around 3 percent cheaper than the national average. This may be something to consider for seniors who have health conditions.  
  • Edison has public transport options for seniors who do not drive. There is also a free transportation service provided by the Edison Senior Citizen Center for local seniors who do not have access to a car. 
  • Residents of Edison do not have their Social Security payments taxed, in accordance with New Jersey state law.
