    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lakewood

    Lakewood, New Jersey, is a small town with an old-world feel and a quaint Victorian downtown. The surrounding area is picturesque, with lakes, parks, and plenty of outdoor recreation opportunities. Ten percent of the population of 102,000 are seniors 65 and over. Lakewood Township is home to 19 assisted living facilities, providing plenty of options for those who need a little extra help with daily living tasks. New Jersey assisted living facilities are licensed by the New Jersey Department of Health. Regulations stipulate that staff be on hand 24 hours a day, and the facility designed to allow aging in place.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lakewood

    • Weather in Lakewood is characterized by warm, humid summers and cold, snowy winters. Average high temperatures in July are 83 degrees, while January lows average around 25. Seniors sensitive to the cold may be uncomfortable in the winter. The proximity to the Atlantic Coast also means that there is a chance of hurricanes in the late summer and fall. 

    • The cost of living in Jackson is 126.6, compared to the U.S. average of 100. Housing is nearly double the national average, which may affect the overall costs for those in assisted living facilities. Grocery costs and health care are both slightly higher than the U.S. average. 

    • Violent crime in Lakewood is one third the U.S. average, and property crime nearly half the national crime rates. Seniors will enjoy living in a safe town. 

    • Lakewood residents have access to the New Jersey Transit Authority, which provides both rail lines and buses. Paratransit service, as well as reduced rates for seniors over 62 and those with a qualifying disability, are available for those who qualify. The Lakewood Shuttle is available to get around in the town itself. 

    • The Jackson area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus and Kimball Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    • Jackson has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Lakewood Community Services Department, an organization that provides meals-on-wheels, caregiver support, and programs for education and enrichment.

    Qualified applicants in Lakewood may receive Medicaid waivers as part of the federal government's Comprehensive Medicaid Waiver. This act was passed in New Jersey in 2017 and is called Medicaid Managed Long-Term Services and Supports (MLTSS). This program may offset the costs of assisted living. New Jersey's system has no enrollment caps, meaning that all those who are eligible to receive services will receive them.
