    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Hillsborough

    Hillsborough, New Jersey, is located in Somerset County. Clovis-type spearheads found in Hillsborough Township indicate that pre-historic people may have lived here at least 10,000 years ago, and seniors who are history buffs can check out ancient spearheads and other native American artifacts at the nearby Princeton Museum of Art.

    Seniors in Hillsborough make up 11.1 percent of the population counted at 38,303 in the last U.S. Census. Aging adults looking for an assisted living facility can choose from three in Hillsborough and 21 more nearby.

    In Hillsborough Township and throughout New Jersey, there are three different types of assisted living facilities: assisted living residences (ALRs), comprehensive personal care homes (CPCHs), and assisted living programs (ALPs). All are licensed and regulated by the state's Department of Health and Senior Services.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Hillsborough

    • The highest average temperatures in Hillsborough occur in July at 86 degrees Fahrenheit, while in January, average lows hit 21 degrees Fahrenheit. The town receives 48 inches of rain per year, which is higher than the U.S. average of 39 inches. Seniors who are sensitive to cold weather may find the winters a bit tough.
    • The air quality index in Hillsborough is 5 percent better than the U.S. average of 58, so seniors may breathe a bit easier here than in some other U.S. cities.
    • The cost of living in Hillsborough is 142 compared to the state average of 127 and the U.S. average 100, so many seniors relocating from other parts of New Jersey may find their budget doesn't stretch as far here.
    • New Jersey is moderately tax-friendly to seniors. The state doesn't tax Social Security payments, and state income taxes are low for retirees with less than $65,000 in income from retirement accounts and pensions. Conversely, property taxes are the highest in the country.
    • Hillsborough's crime rate is 15.5 compared to a U.S. average of 31.1. Property crime is 15.4 compared to 38.1, which is the national average. Seniors may feel safer knowing these stats as they run errands and shop in town.
    • The Hillsborough area is home to world-class medical facilities, including 
      Somerset Medical Center in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
