    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Somerset

    Somerset is located within Franklin Township in central New Jersey. This small, affluent community is consistently ranked as a "best place" to live. Seniors will enjoy the small-town feel of Somerset. The surrounding area is picturesque, with lakes, parks and plenty of outdoor recreation opportunities. A little over 18 percent of the population of 24,000 are seniors 65 and over. To care for this community, Somerset is home to nine assisted living facilities. The New Jersey Department of Health regulates and licenses assisted living facilities. These regulations stipulate that staff be on hand 24 hours a day and the facility be designed to allow aging in place.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Somerset

    • Somerset residents enjoy all four seasons, with warm, humid summers and winters with snow and ice. Average high temperatures in July are 86 degrees, and January lows average around 22. Seniors who are sensitive to cold weather or have mobility limitations on ice may be uncomfortable here.
    • The cost of living in Somerset is 135.2 as compared to the U.S. average of 100. Housing costs increase this average, coming in at 154 compared to the national base of 100. This may increase fees associated with assisted living. Health care and grocery costs, however, are more in line with the rest of the nation, at 96 and 104.4, respectively. 
    • Crime rates in the United States are rated on a scale of 1 to 100, with 1 being the safest. Violent crimes in Somerset rate 29.5 compared to the national average of 31.1. Property crimes are 27.7 versus the U.S. average of 38.1. Seniors may enjoy a safer community but are still encouraged to use common sense and caution, especially when traveling to larger cities nearby. 
    • Seniors in New Jersey may be eligible for a property tax freeze. As they transition into assisted living, this may help secure more money to pay for assisted living fees. 
    • Somerset residents have access to the New Jersey Transit Authority which provides both rail lines and buses. Those 62 and older, or with a qualifying disability, are eligible for reduced fares. Paratransit services are available for those who qualify. In addition, Somerset County offers shuttle services around the community for all members of the general public.

    Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Somerset

    Somerset seniors, as in all of New Jersey, are eligible for Medicaid waivers that may help those who qualify offset the costs of an assisted living facility. Regulations are determined by the state's Department of Human Services. This program was created in 2017 and is titled Medicaid Managed Long-Term Services and Supports (MLTSS). This falls under the federal government's Comprehensive Medicaid Waiver. New Jersey's system has no enrollment caps, meaning that all those who are eligible to receive services will receive them. 

    Learn more about these programs, plus who’s eligible, on our Assisted Living in New Jersey page.
