    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.
