About New Jersey
Assisted Living

There are three categories of Assisted Living facilities licensed by the state New Jersey: Assisted Living Residences, Assisted Living Programs, and Comprehensive Personal Care Homes. Assisted Living Residences and Comprehensive Personal Care Homes are similiar in the care they offer, but might have differences in size and the living space provided to each resident.

Assisted Living Programs are related to subsidized housing facilities, and provide some Assisted Living services that otherwise may not have been permitted because of federal or state regulations.

Assisted Living establishments in New Jersey are supposed to provide residents help with daily living activities, houskeeping, laundry and linen services, 24-hour security, and limited health care services. Facilities may provide medication reminders; medication administration (which must be performed by a licensed health care professional) and dietary services. This is rough description of the services required by law, and you should always consult with your local Area Aging office or another qualified professional for the full descriptions of the services you might expect.

We have listing pages for each New Jersey county that has Assisted Living facilities, along with special directories for larger NJ cities.

A person considering Assisted Living must meet certain health requirements to be accepted by a facility. For instance, a person who requires skilled nursing care would not qualify for Assisted Living. The rules are much more specific than our example, however, and you should discuss your needs with the professional staff of an Assisted Living facility or with a qualified state elder-care professional.
