Moorestown is a township in Burlington County that’s approximately 25 minutes east of Philadelphia. Adults aged 65 and older make up around 16% of its 21,355 residents. They’re drawn by its low health care costs and crime rates, in addition to affordable transportation and a wide choice of medical facilities. The landscape is also an attraction, particularly the 34-acre Boundary Creek Natural Resource Area, which offers great opportunities to take in the region’s birds and wildlife while also enjoying picnics with loved ones and relaxing strolls on the boardwalks. 

Moorestown’s assisted living facilities provide a solution to independent-minded seniors who find everyday tasks, such as housekeeping, more challenging now. The facilities offer pleasant accommodation with the opportunity to make friends with neighbors, in addition to staff who clean rooms, cook meals and provide basic medical support, such as medication management. A typical assisted living placement in Moorestown costs $5,550 per month, a monthly saving of $1,100 when compared to the state average. 

The rest of this guide looks at senior living costs in the area, provides a short list of resources for Moorestown’s older residents and discusses the benefits and drawbacks of living in the area.

What to Consider About Assisted Living in Moorestown

The New Jersey Department of Health is responsible for issuing licenses to assisted living facility administrators. The department regulates and monitors facilities to ensure they continue to uphold the standards stipulated in their licenses. It also conducts unannounced inspections, which can result in it revoking licenses from underperforming facilities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Moorestown

  • Sperling’s Best Places records Moorestown’s average cost of living at an exceptionally high 174.8 (the state and national averages are 120.4 and 100, respectively). Although several indices, such as utility costs, are above average, the primary driver appears to be very high housing costs, which are unlikely to concern seniors in assisted living communities. What may interest them is the area’s health care index of 87.3, which is below the state and national averages.
  • Moorestown is safer than most areas. Data published by Neighborhood Scout show that property crime is at least half the national average and significantly lower than New Jersey’s average. Violent crime is even less common, with the chances of being a victim at 1 in 1,087 (the state average — which is almost half the national average — is 1 in 483). An additional source of comfort for seniors in many assisted living facilities is 24-hour security and staff always on call.
  • There are almost 40 hospitals within an hour of Moorestown, including several nationally ranked facilities 20 minutes away in Philadelphia. Closer to home, seniors can get quality care and rehabilitative support at the  Virtua Medical Center and Kennedy University Hospital, which is ranked #10 in the state and #12 in the Philadelphia metro area. There are also 41 family doctors in Moorestown who treat seniors in receipt of Medicare. 
  • Moorestown’s winters can be challenging for seniors, with temperatures regularly falling to 24 degrees. However, snowfall is almost a third of the national average and the dial often sits at around 87 degrees in summer. Rainfall is above average, resulting in a landscape that’s very green and pleasant.
  • Sen-Han Transit, a division of the nonprofit Senior Citizens United Community Services provides paratransit rides throughout Moorestown and Burlington County. Although the rides are primarily for non-emergency medical purposes, the service also conducts shopping trip rides on Wednesdays to several destinations within Moorestown for $2 per one-way trip.

Paying for Assisted Living in Moorestown

According to the 2020 Genworth Cost of Care Survey, Moorestown’s average assisted living costs are $1,100 per month below the state average of $6,650 although above the national average of $4,300.

The Cost of Other Types of Senior Care

Senior care costs typically reflect the frequency and level of care, as well as other costs, such as accommodation. Consequently, adult day care centers offer the most affordable option, with fees in Moorestown averaging $1,842. This is followed by home and home health care, both of which cost $4,767, despite the latter also providing support by medical professionals. Assisted living’s $5,550 fees are the most affordable for care that includes accommodation. Nursing home care is the most expensive, with the average semiprivate room costing $11,285, while a private room adds another $1,213 per month to the fees.

The ombudsman can also supply seniors with inspection reports, enabling them to make more educated decisions about the best assisted living facility for them. 

(856) 222-9311

The Volunteer Center of Burlington County is a nonprofit organization that pairs up seniors with life skills and a willingness to serve their communities with charities and agencies that rely on the help of volunteers.

This could be delivering meals to homebound seniors, working in a thrift shop or mentoring younger members of the community.
