What to Consider About Assisted Living in West Orange

West Orange is a suburban town in Essex County, New Jersey, in close proximity to beaches, ski resorts and Manhattan, New York. Nearly 17 percent of the West Orange population is 65 or older, and the area features ample accommodations for senior citizens. West Orange includes six assisted living facilities, and 51 more facilities are available in nearby areas, such as Fairfield and Newark. In New Jersey, the assisted living residences are typically apartment complexes with shared dining spaces for four or more people. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in West Orange
