    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Shrewsbury

    The borough of Shrewsbury has about 3,800 residents, including a senior community comprised of about 670 people. This borough may be a good option for seniors who enjoy being active in their community, as it as a crime rate that is notably below the national average. On a 100-point index, property crime here is about 10 points lower than the national average at 24.7, and the violent crime rate is about 14 points lower at 8.4.

    Retirees who need assistance with activities of daily living may reside in one of the area's 14 assisted living facilities, three of which are in Shrewsbury proper. Like all in the state, these facilities are categorized as assisted living programs, comprehensive personal care homes and assisted living residences, depending on the level of care provided. They are governed by the state's Department of Health and Senior Services.   

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Shrewsbury

    • On a cost of living index that is based on the national median of 100, Shrewsbury is rated 161.2, versus the statewide average of 132.6. This may be a consideration for seniors who have limited budgets. 
    • Compared to the rest of the state, Shrewsbury's weather is relatively cool. Summers have fairly low humidity levels and high temperatures in the upper 70s to low 80s. Winters are cool with highs around 40 degrees, and the average annual snowfall is 25 inches. 
    • The air quality in Shrewsbury is rated 69 out of 100, which is about 10 points higher than the national average. This may be beneficial to seniors who have respiratory illnesses or heart disease.
    • Transportation services for seniors in Shrewsbury are provided by the county's Division of Transportation. This program, which is funded in part by the Older Americans Act, provides transportation for medical appointments and food shopping for seniors age 60 and over.
    • The Shrewsbury area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Red Bank.
    • Shrewsbury seniors do not pay state income tax on Social Security benefits, and while other retirement income is taxed, the state income tax rate is low for most seniors. This may leave mote money available for assisted living expenses.
