The abundance of choices available to families makes finding a New Jersey assisted living facility easier than ever. By choosing an assisted living home in New Jersey, you or your loved one will not only have access to activities offered within the facility, but those offered by the state of New Jersey itself. With the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the Delaware River on the other, New Jersey has a fairly moderate climate. Though the winters can be cold, the average temperature is 55 degrees and ranges from the low 30s in the winter to the 70s in the summer. The state offers plenty of outdoor summer activities, while saving indoor events for the colder months.
There are theaters, restaurants, and museums galore in New Jersey. Several cities including Allenhurst, Avalon, Beachwood, Island Heights, Seaside Park and Spring Lake have boardwalks lined with diners, gift shops, antique stores, and other attractions; perfect for taking a quiet walk along the water. The city of Belmar hosts a seafood festival every summer. Residents can also travel to Cape May and vote for their favorite chocolate dessert at the Chocolate Championship Tour and Tasting. Assisted living residents can enjoy tours of historic architecture or lighthouses, or go shopping for antiques in Chester, Lambertville, or Haddonfield.
Modern-day assisted living centers make activity and community central to the residential experience. Residents are not simply left to sit in their rooms and watch television. They are encouraged to play games, read, eat together, and if they’re going to watch a movie or television show they’re encouraged to do it together. Relationships are a strong determining factor for a person’s quality of life, so assisted living staff members do all they can to promote, maintain and strengthen friendships among the residents.
