    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Freehold

    Freehold, New Jersey, is located in Monmouth County, which has a rich history including Revolutionary War battles. The town has a population of 35,000, 15% of whom are seniors aged 65 and older. Some seniors in this population may need accommodations in an assisted living facility as they age. Freehold has two assisted living communities, with nine more close by to accommodate them.

    These facilities are licensed and regulated by the New Jersey Department of Health. This governing body requires that certified staff be on hand 24 hours a day and that these facilities be designed to allow aging in place. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Freehold

    • Residents of Freehold enjoy all four seasons, with warmer summers with temperatures averaging in the mid-80s. Winters have heavy snows, with low temperatures dipping into the 20s and teens. Seniors in assisted living who have health conditions aggravated by cold weather may be uncomfortable here, although those who have a sensitivity to high heat may find relief. 
    • Seniors who enjoy the outdoors may enjoy exploring one of the 30 parks in Monmouth County, with walking trails, wildlife, and river views. Those that enjoy history might have fun visiting the Historic Village at Allaire
    • The cost of living in the U.S. is measured using a baseline of 100. In Freehold, the overall cost of living is 134. Healthcare and grocery costs are within a few points of the national average. Housing costs, however, are 190, which may increase assisted living fees, as the facilities may have higher operating costs. 
    • Freehold has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Freehold Senior Center, an organization that is active, with programs that include fitness classes, creative outlets such as painting and scrapbooking, and group outings. 
    • The Freehold area is home to world-class medical facilities, including CentraState Healthcare System in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Freehold seniors, as in all of New Jersey, may be eligible for a property tax freeze, locking in their taxes at a certain point. As seniors transition into assisted living, this may be beneficial to them.
