    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Manalapan

    Manalapan is located in Monmouth County, New Jersey, just 15 miles from the Jersey Shore and 45 miles from New York City. The community has roots stretching back to the American Revolution as the site of the Battle of Monmouth. Of the city's population of 51,000 residents, 16.5 percent are seniors aged 60 and older. They can select from 153 assisted living facilities in the Monmouth County area — all licensed by the New Jersey Department of Health. To be designated as an assisted living type of facility, staff must be on hand 24 hours a day and the campus design must allow aging in place.
