My mother-in-law passed away a few years ago in my own home. She came to live with me when she started getting lost driving her car. I promised her that I wouldn’t place her in a nursing home and she promised to give up driving and move in with my wife and I. As a retired teacher, she was extremely helpful with our children, waiting for them at the bus stop in the afternoon and helping them complete their homework before dinner. We would sit together for hours talking about family long gone and reminding our children where they came from. When she died peacefully in her sleep, I was pleased to know that my family and I had made the last years of our loved ones life as safe, pleasant and comfortable as possible.
New Jersey ranks as one of the more expensive states in the nation as far as the cost of assisted living. As of 2018, the national average is $3,670 / month, but in NJ, residents pay over $1,420 / month more, with the average cost being $5,070. However, state residents should take some comfort in the fact that the cost is not consistently high everywhere in the state. The less expensive areas include Ocean City, in and around Atlantic City, and Vineland-Millville-Bridgeton. In these areas the average cost is closer to $4,270 / month. Residents in the most expensive areas should be aware that they live in these areas, so that they might consider neighboring counties as a cost-saving measure. The Trenton area and almost all of Northern New Jersey has monthly cost averaging between $5,370 and $6,170. Caring for individuals with Alzheimer's can further increase the monthly cost of assisted living by as much as $1,270 / month.
