    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Ocean City

    Ocean City, New Jersey, known as America’s Greatest Family Resort, is a beach community on the Jersey Shore. The city has a small population of just over 11,000 with 29.2 percent of residents over the age of 65. These seniors are served by one assisted living facility in Ocean City itself and seven in the surrounding areas. The New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services licenses these communities and defines them as either assisted living residences, assisted living programs or comprehensive personal care homes. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Ocean City

    • The cost of living in Ocean City is 62.2 percent higher than the U.S. average, due almost exclusively to housing. Grocery, transportation and health care costs come in closer to national averages, which may be helpful to seniors living on a budget.  
    • Ocean City, like the rest of the Tri-state area, has seasonal weather. Summers are warm and pleasant with highs of 83 degrees Fahrenheit in July, which is great for seniors who enjoy the outdoors. Winters are cold, with lows of 26 degrees in January, and an average snowfall of 16 inches annually.  
    • Ocean City has a wealth of arts and culture for seniors to enjoy, including the Ocean City Boardwalk and BeachCorson’s Inlet State Park, the Ocean City Historical Museum and the Ocean City Arts Center. The Ocean City Community Center also sponsors festivals and events throughout the city.  
    • New Jersey does not tax Social Security benefits, and taxes for other retirement income including pensions are generally low. This may leave more money for seniors to put toward assisted living costs.  
    • Public transportation is somewhat limited in Ocean City, but Cape May County provides transportation for seniors who don’t drive through its Fare-Free Transportation, a paratransit program which offers modified fixed-route bus and subscription services. The Ocean City Trolley provides stops near the boardwalk from the end of June to September.  
    • Ocean City has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Cape May County Division of Aging and Disability Services, an organization that provides advocacy, nutrition programs and the JACC Program of in-home services as well as one senior center.
