What to Consider About Assisted Living in Ocean Grove

Ocean Grove, New Jersey, is the "Queen of Religious Resorts" and is still considered the finest year-round family seaside resort in the state. It's part of Neptune Township in Monmouth County. Out of the population of 9,000, over 33 percent are seniors over 65, making it a good place to retire. There are 153 assisted living facilities in the entire area of Monmouth County, giving the large population of seniors plenty of choices when they need more help with daily living tasks. New Jersey assisted living facilities are licensed by the New Jersey Department of Health, with requirements that stipulate that staff be on hand 24 hours a day and the campus be designed for aging in place.
