    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Matawan

    Matawan is a Monmouth County borough that appeals to nature-loving seniors due to its two lakes and the Matawan Creek. The borough is a cozy 2.4 square miles in size, but the Matawan-Aberdeen train station gives seniors a direct line to New York City with a 70-minute ride.

    Residents aged 65 and older make up about 14% of Matawan’s estimated population of 8,736. To serve those who need help with the activities of daily living, Matawan offers three assisted living residences (ALRs) with another 11 nearby. The New Jersey Department of Health licenses and regulates ALRs in the state.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Matawan

    • The American Lung Association gives Matawan’s location in Monmouth County an air quality grade of “F” for ozone pollution. This could pose a health threat to seniors with heart or lung conditions.
    • The Matawan area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Bay Shore Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • A low Sperling’s Comfort Index Score of 50 out of 100 might indicate Matawan is too hot and humid in the summer months for active seniors. The city’s average annual rainfall of 48 inches and 25 inches of snow could keep seniors inside during winter months more than they’d like.
    • Matawan seniors aged 60 and over enjoy public and specialized transportation services through the Monmouth County Division of Transportation’s (MCDOT) S.C.A.T. program. Transportation is provided for medical appointments, food shopping and a variety of other essential trips.
    • Matawan’s overall cost of living is 36% higher than the U.S. average, which could pose a challenge to seniors on limited incomes. Although the high cost of housing accounts for most of this, seniors pay more than the national average for groceries, transportation and utilities in Matawan.
    • With violent and property crime rates in Matawan that are about one-third of the national average, seniors and their loved ones may rest easier. On a scale from one to 100 with 100 being high crime, Matawan’s scores of 6.7 for violent crime and 13 for property crime are significantly lower than the U.S. averages of 22.7 and 35.4.
