    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Passaic

    The city of Passaic in northeastern New Jersey was once a leading wool producer, and today, it continues to be a source of a variety of products, including rubber goods and textile machinery. Located just a few miles from Newark and other major urban areas, the industrial city of Passaic offers an easily accessible residential location for seniors. Numbering around 5,913 or just 8.3 percent of the city’s population, Passaic seniors can conveniently get help with activities of daily living from among 21 assisted living facilities within the area — two within the city and 19 more nearby.

    The New Jersey Department of Health licenses these facilities which are officially known in Passaic and throughout the state as Assisted Living Residences.

    • Passaic has an array of community resources for seniors, including Senior Center Programs, which are administered through the Senior Affairs Division of the city’s Human Services office. Various activities and services are offered to seniors, including transportation services, arts and crafts, and trips and recreation.
    • The NJ Transit operates a number of bus routes covering areas within the city of Passaic. Senior citizens 62 and older are entitled to fare discounts. Personal assistants accompanying seniors can ride for free. The buses have accessibility features such as lifts and ramps that make boarding safe and convenient for seniors.

    • The overall cost of living index for Passaic is listed at 136, slightly higher than the state’s 133 but several notches above the national index of 100. All categories are above 100, with grocery, healthcare, transportation and utilities going above the state figures.
