    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Westfield

    The fire station in Westfield, NJ, started as a volunteer bucket brigade in 1875 and is one of the oldest institutions in the town, which is now home to 29,881 people, 14.2% of whom are aged 65 and older. There's a senior center available for those in this age group to gather for communal meals, social activities and helpful services, and seniors can also stroll through the town's parks to stay fit.

    For seniors who require help with the tasks of daily living, there are two assisted living facilities in town and 14 others in nearby communities. In New Jersey, including Westfield, assisted living facilities are regulated and licensed by the New Jersey Department of Health

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Westfield

    • The cost of living in Westfield is 206, more than 70 points higher than the state's average, 133, and the national average, 100. This is driven by housing costs that are four times the national average. This may present an economic challenge to families moving here to be closer to seniors in assisted living facilities.
    • The violent and property crime rates of 7 and 19, respectively, are much lower than the corresponding national averages of 22.7 and 19.0. This may help assisted living residents feel more confident while running errands in town.
    • Seniors who like changing temperatures may appreciate the annual temperature range of 21 to 86. However, Westfield receives 50 inches of rain, 12 inches higher than the national average, which may aggravate conditions susceptible to moist weather conditions, such as asthma or arthritis.
    • According to the EPA, Westfield's air quality, at 52, is six points lower than the national average. This may be a slight concern for seniors with respiratory issues such as COPD.
    • In Westfield and the rest of New Jersey, seniors don't pay taxes on income from Social Security, but IRAs and other retirement accounts are subject to taxation on a sliding scale. Seniors on a tight budget may want to plan accordingly.  
    • Westfield has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Summit.
