    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Trenton

    The city of Trenton is the capital of New Jersey, and was briefly the capital of a young United States in 1784. There are plenty of things to do in the community, from movies in one of the city parks to music festivals and food tastings. The population of Trenton is 84,867, 9.3% of whom are seniors who are aged 65 and older. These seniors may, as they age, need to transition into an assisted living center. To accommodate this demographic, Trenton is home to three assisted living facilities. 

    In New Jersey as well as in Trenton, assisted living communities are licensed and regulated through the state's Department of Health.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Trenton

    • The state of New Jersey does not levy state income tax on Social Security income. Withdrawals from retirement accounts, however, including IRAs, are subject to taxation. Trenton seniors who are on a budget may wish to consider this. 
    • Trenton's crime rates are higher than the national averages. Violent crimes are at 61.6 compared to 22.7, while property crimes are 37.9 compared to the U.S. average of 35.4. Seniors are advised to use caution when venturing into the community. 
    • The climate in Trenton is characterized by cold, snowy winters and warm summers. July high temperatures average in the 80s, while January lows dip into the 20s. For seniors sensitive to high temperatures, the weather may bring relief although those with health conditions aggravated by the cold might be uncomfortable. 
    • The New Jersey Transit Authority operates public transportation for Trenton residents. Seniors and those with a qualifying disability may be eligible for reduced rates. 
    • The cost of living in Trenton is lower than the U.S. average, at 83.5 compared to the national average of 100. Housing costs are significantly lower than the national average, at 26.8. This may reduce the operating cost of assisted living facilities, and thus fees for residents, something seniors with limited funds may appreciate. 
    • Trenton is home to world-class medical facilities, including Capital Health Regional Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
