Overall Rating


When choosing assisted living care, consumers are reliant on their state’s regulatory agencies to provide information about communities and their backgrounds. But public access to assisted living records varies greatly state by state. Here is a snapshot of the level of transparency in the state of New Jersey:

Key Findings

  • New Jersey has generally transparent assisted living records but was marked down in our rankings because mandatory inspections occur only once every two years.
  • New Jersey has a functional if inelegant website for finding assisted living records and histories.

How to Access Records

  • Visit New Jersey's site to Search Licensed Facilities and Services.
  • Select "long term care" facilities and services.
  • Select preferred search method (for example, name of community) and for care type select "assisted living residences."
  • From the results page, click a providers name to access detailed information including inspections reports and deficiency citations.
