    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Morris Plains

    The library in Morris Plain, New Jersey, once housed light horsemen during the Revolutionary War. Today, the town boasts 5,532 people, 16.6% of whom are aged 65 and older. Some of those seniors may need help with the activities of daily living, which can be provided by the town's two assisted living facilities. There are 16 other facilities to choose from in nearby cities, such as Florham Park and Chatham. In Morris Plains and all of New Jersey, assisted living facilities are licensed and regulated by the New Jersey Department of Health

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Morris Plains

    • With annual temperatures ranging between 20 and 85 degrees, Morris Plains weather is typical for the northeastern part of the U.S. during the coldest and hottest months of the year, which are January and July, respectively. Seniors visiting assisted living facilities in the area may wish to ask whether individual temperature controls are available in residents' rooms.
    • Morris Plains has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Morristown.
    • Rates for property and violent crime, at 18.7 and 10.4, respectively, are about half the national average. Morris Plains' crime rates are also lower than the state property crime rate of 25 and violent crime rate of 15. Despite the lower crime rates, family members may wish to ask each facility what measures are taken to ensure resident safety.
    • Morris Plains' cost of living is 167, compared to the state average of 133 and the national average of 100. This is mainly due to housing costs that are 2.5 times the U.S. average. This may indirectly impact monthly assisted living fees for area seniors since housing costs can impact a facility's cost of operations.
    • In Westfield and the rest of New Jersey, seniors don't pay taxes on income from Social Security, but IRAs and other retirement accounts are subject to taxation on a sliding scale. Seniors on a tight budget may want to plan accordingly.  
    • In measurements based on the EPA's National Air Toxics Assessment, Morris Plains' air quality of 65 exceeds the national average by seven points. This may mean that seniors with asthma and other chronic respiratory conditions can breathe easier here.
