What to Consider About Assisted Living in Howell

The New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services is responsible for issuing licenses to assisted living facilities and ensuring they abide by its conditions. To ensure compliance, the department’s inspectors make unannounced visits and review other sources of information, such as complaints registered with the Long-Term Care Ombudsman.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Howell

  • Howell has a cost of living index almost one point above the state average of 120.4, which is above the national average of 100. Although this may make the township appear expensive, costs are generally in line with New Jersey, which is one of the most costly states in the union. Where Howell diverges is health care costs, which, at 89.9, are significantly lower than the national average of 100. 
  • Crime is much less of an issue in Howell than it is in other areas. Violent crime, in particular, is very low, with the chances of being a victim at 1 in 1,593, while the state average is 1 in 483 (almost half the national average). Property crime too is low, at 1 in 138, around half the state average, which is also lower than the national average. 
  • Howell Primary Care is a general hospital and the principal medical facility within the township. Facilities within a 20-minute radius include the southern campus of Monmouth Medical Center and Hackensack Meridian Jersey Shore University Medical Center. In addition to the township’s access to a wide choice of medical facilities, its residents also enjoy an average lifespan of 81 years, which is above the national average of 78.7 years.
  • Howell has a relatively senior-friendly climate, despite winter lows often dropping to 23 degrees. In summer, the dial often sits at a comfortable 84 degrees and seniors get to enjoy four more days than the country’s average of 2005. Snowfall isn’t as common, although it still reaches 23 inches annually, and rainfall is about 10 inches more than the 38 experienced by the typical American city.
  • Members of the Howell Senior Center are eligible for free transportation to and from the facility, in addition to trips as part of its group activities. The center’s buses are fully equipped for wheelchair users.

Free Assisted Living Resources in Howell

Howell Township and Monmouth County have made many resources available to their older residents, some of which are listed here. These examples can help seniors handle disputes with their care providers, know where to get medical help if they served in the military and find local nonprofits that will help them support their communities.

ResourceContactService
Long-Term Care Ombudsman(877) 582-6996Seniors concerned about the quality of their care or unable to resolve disagreements with their care providers can call on the assistance of the Long-Term Care Ombudsman. Advocating for the senior, the ombudsman will investigate the complaint and pursue a resolution with the owner or manager of the facility. The ombudsman can also investigate complaints made by others and provide copies of inspection reports to seniors comparing different facilities, enabling them to make more informed decisions.
United Way of Monmouth and Ocean Counties(848) 206-2037Based at the Volunteer Center in Wall Township, United Way of Monmouth and Ocean Counties connects seniors with local nonprofit organizations that rely on the help of volunteers. Seniors dictate the amount of time they can spare and the agency links them to a suitable nonprofit that could use their skills and experience to support the community. Work can vary greatly, such as delivering meals to homebound seniors, doing clerical work in an office and mentoring the county's younger residents.
James J. Howard Veterans' Outpatient Clinic(732) 206-8900The James J. Howard Veterans' Outpatient Clinic serves Monmouth County's vets and their families. It provides primary care services, performs surgeries, manages mental health care programs and includes an immunology department. The site also has pharmacists, optometrists, podiatrists and dentists. Patients in need of specialist care unavailable at the clinic are transferred to the East Orange VA Medical Center in Newark, which is just over an hour away.
Monmouth County Office on Aging(732) 431-7450Monmouth County Office on Aging is the local Area Agency on Aging, a multi-resource service dedicated to supporting the county's older residents. Much of its work relates to seniors residing at home. However, of particular interest to assisted living residents will be the support the agency can provide if they need transportation assistance and want to join one of the county's senior centers.
