    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Toms River

    Toms River, New Jersey, the county seat of Ocean County, is situated along the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. It's easily accessed from the Garden State Parkway and has a population of 89,791, 18.5 percent of whom are 65 and over. To accommodate local seniors requiring help with daily tasks, there are five assisted living facilities located in Toms River and 25 more located in nearby neighborhoods. In Toms River and throughout New Jersey, there are three kinds of assisted living facilities; they include assisted living residences (ALRs), comprehensive personal care homes (CPCHs), and assisted living programs (ALPs). All facilities are licensed and regulated by the state's Department of Health and Senior Services.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Toms River

    • The highest average temperatures in Toms River occur in July at 76 degrees, while in January, average lows hit 31 degrees. December weather brings up to 12 inches of rain and snow, which can challenge seniors with mobility issues.

    • Toms River's overall crime rate is 26 percent lower than the national average, which translates to about 6 crimes committed daily per 100,000 people. Toms River is safer than 64 percent of the cities in the United States.
