    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Paramus

    The Wall Street Journal described Paramus, New Jersey as the "quintissential suburb" — for good reason. Paramus is just 15 to 20 miles from Midtown Manhattan, blending its small-town feel and modest property taxes with convenient access to New York City. Paramus is home to five assisted living facilities, with another 56 nearby in the Big Apple and its boroughs. In Paramus, along with the rest of New Jersey, assisted living facilities, termed assisted living residences, or ALRs, by the state, are regulated by the Department of Health and Senior Services, which issues licenses to ALRs. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Paramus

    • Seniors living in Paramus will experience four seasons. Winter months bring frigid weather, with average high temperatures in the 30s and lows in the teens. Summers are warm, with temperatures reaching the upper 80s.

    • Due to its proximity to New York City, Paramus has a high cost of living. Housing costs are particularly expensive. As a result, seniors will find that assisted living expenses are significantly higher than other areas.

    • Paramus is safer than just 8 percent of U.S. cities. However, most of the crime in Paramus is nonviolent. Property crime rates exceed both the New Jersey and national medians. However, violent crime rates are low, with a violent crime risk of just 1 in 791.

    • Art-loving seniors will enjoy exploring local art galleries around Paramus. Notably, the Gallery Bergen and Thomas Kinkade Gallery are worth a visit. In addition, the Paramus Cultural Arts Council produces year-round events, including its popular summer concert series featuring live music outdoors.

    • The Paramus area is home to world-class medical facilities, including New Bridge Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    • Paramus has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Bergen County Division of Senior Services, an organization that provides seniors with education and events, as well as one senior center.

    Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Paramus

    Eligible seniors in New Jersey can access two financial aid programs for assisted living expenses.
