    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Wayne

    The township of Wayne is located in Passaic County, New Jersey, just 20 miles from midtown Manhattan. The city, which is home to William Paterson University, has over 55,000 people with 17.9 percent of the population over the age of 65. Seniors can choose from three assisted living facilities in town and 16 in the surrounding area. These communities are licensed by the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services and are defined as either assisted living residences, comprehensive personal care homes or assisted living programs. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Wayne

    • The cost of living in Wayne is 56.4 percent higher than the U.S. average, which may make it difficult for seniors on a budget to live here. Housing is the biggest factor for this, but transportation costs also come in well above average. Grocery and health care are comparable to national medians. 
       
    • Winters in Wayne can be quite cold, reaching lows of 20 degrees Fahrenheit in January. This may affect seniors who enjoy outdoor activities. Summers are warm and humid with highs of 84 degrees. Rainfall is above average at 50 inches per year, and snowfall averages just under the national median at 23 inches annually.
    • New Jersey is a moderately tax-friendly state, as it does not tax Social Security benefits. Taxes on income from retirement accounts and pensions are generally low if the income is below a certain amount, which could leave more money for seniors to put towards assisted living.
       
    • Wayne is safer than 31 percent of U.S. cities, and a majority of crimes are nonviolent, so seniors can feel safe living here. On a scale of 1 to 100, with 100 being high crime, violent crime scored a low 19.3, and property crime was slightly higher at 34.3.  
    • Public transportation is limited in Wayne, but the town does provide a senior citizens bus for seniors who don’t drive. The bus has two different routes around town.
