What to Consider About Assisted Living in Monroe Township

Assisted living communities in Monroe Township are regulated by the New Jersey Department of Health. The department issues rules for senior care at residential communities throughout the state, conducts site inspections and issues reports for the public. All of the facilities in New Jersey that offer residential assisted living support for seniors must be licensed through the department and comply with the department’s rules and state laws regarding senior care.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Monroe Township

  • Monroe Township’s climate is a pleasant blend of mild summers and cool winters. The area gets around 29 inches of snow during the winter, and in the summer, daily highs average 86 degrees. 
  • The cost of living in Monroe Township can be high relative to the rest of the country, but seniors living in New Jersey get a few breaks that help keep expenses manageable. New Jersey doesn’t tax Social Security income, and up to $75,000 of income from pensions and other retirement sources is free from tax. Property taxes can be high, but New Jersey’s sales tax of 7% falls well within the average range for most of the country.
  • Monroe Township has a relatively low crime rate for most categories. The violent crime index in the township is just 7.3, which is significantly lower than the national rate of 11.6.

  • Seniors have a lot of options for getting around Monroe Township. In addition to the bus and rail service that connects the township with the greater New York urban area, the township’s transportation department operates a fleet of 12 buses for seniors aged 55 and over. Seniors can ride these buses for free, and spur lines connect regular routes with Princeton Hospital and CentraState at no charge.
  • The Monroe Township Senior Center helps local seniors keep active with a suite of programs and events open to all residents aged 55 and over. Sponsored events include a National Night Out, open house events at the township’s libraries and exercise classes geared toward seniors of all levels of fitness and physical ability.
