Newton, New Jersey

Nursing Homes

A nursing home is a facility that offers lodging to at least two individuals who are not related by marriage or by blood to the administrator. A nursing home facility provides its inhabitants with 24-hour care by on-site nurses. These caregivers offer specialized care for people who cannot properly care for themselves because of mental or physical conditions, including age.

This type of facility is a convenient and comfortable care alternative for individuals 65 years or older, however nursing homes will routinely accept persons 55 and above (a rarity in the realm of senior care).Often times individuals might decide life in a nursing home over another type of facility due to a physical or mental disability that prevents them from easily accomplishing the activities of daily living. Many residents are single women with less social support, and almost 50% of nursing home residents are over the age of 85. Many residents of nursing homes are individuals with behavioral difficulties. These can consist of resisting care, a tendency to wander, or verbal outbursts. The most frequent mental issue experienced by nursing home residents is dementia, which can cloud their decision making capacities, memory recall, and and their sense of familiarity. As a resident of a nursing home, you can expect the right to participate in activities, be free from restraints, spend time with visitors, and have protections against involuntary transfer or discharge.

Cost of Living

The total cost of living is a major factor in determining what destination fits best. The rent burden for Newton is about 22.3% of the average person's monthly income. The median monthly rent in Newton is around $1,758 and the median home value for Newton is around $205,881.

Demographics and Values

In Newton, 16.6% have some form of disability, 14.2% live in poverty, 13.1% do not have health insurance, and 58.8% participate in the labor force.
