Who is a good fit for assisted living in New Jersey?

Assisted living is a great option for seniors who need extra support or who need assistance with day-to-day tasks. Every senior is different and each situation is unique. However, there are a few signs that assisted living could be the best (and healthiest) next decision for you or your loved one.

Regularly feeling unstable or experiencing a recent fall, chronic pain or other conditions that are becoming harder to manage, feelings of loneliness or isolation—especially when you still want to be social: these are all characteristics of someone who would benefit from a move into an assisted living community. If you’re trying to determine if the time is right, give us a call; our team is here to help.

What’s the difference between Arbor Terrace Marlton and a nursing home in Marlton, NJ?

Our community was designed to be reminiscent of home, offering private apartments and independence for our residents. In fact, some assisted living residents drive their own cars, cook some of their own meals, and come and go as they please. Assisted living at Arbor Terrace Marlton includes dining, housekeeping, laundry, maintenance, and all of the other world-class amenities that The Arbor Company is known for. Our staff is available 24 hours a day to provide help, if and when it’s needed. Assisted living is a great option for seniors who need extra support or who need assistance with day-to-day tasks.

By contrast, a nursing home (also known as a skilled nursing facility) offers more comprehensive support to those who have extensive medical needs in more of a clinical environment. They provide the highest level of care possible outside of a hospital, delivering 24-hour care to seniors who have complex medical conditions and need hands-on assistance and monitoring. Skilled nursing facilities are the best choice for those who need assistance with tasks that go beyond the activities of daily living. 

Are assisted living apartments furnished at Arbor Terrace Marlton?

Aside from kitchenette appliances, the assisted living apartments at Arbor Terrace Marlton do not come furnished. Our senior living community is designed to be reminiscent of home, and we encourage residents to bring their own belongings, including a bed and smaller pieces of furniture. For more information on what to bring—and what not to bring—when moving in, read this article from The Arbor Company Blog!

How much does assisted living cost in New Jersey?

In 2021, according to Genworth’s Cost of Care Survey, the median cost of senior living in New Jersey was $6,495 per month. The average monthly cost of senior living in the Marlton, NJ area was $5,685.

Are assisted living expenses tax deductible?

In most cases, only the medical costs of an assisted living community are deductible. Living costs like room and board are not. However, there are exceptions if the resident is in the assisted living facility primarily for medical care, in which case, part or all of assisted living costs may qualify for the medical expense tax deduction. We recommend consulting a tax advisor with questions regarding your specific circumstances.
