Brookdale Paramus was a little overpriced comparable to the other places we looked at, and did not have as good of a patient to staff ratio. The rooms were clean but average sized. I didn't get a good sense of the staff, and the residents looked bored.

I thought that the units at Brookdale Paramus were very small. I saw a lot of people sitting around in wheelchairs and not being very active, so I wasn’t really impressed with the place. They had a nice dining area and it looked like they had a good menu. Their activities looked all right, too.

Assisted Living Costs in Bergen County

According to Genworth’s 2018 Cost of Care survey, Bergen County’s ($5,916) average assisted living cost is significantly higher than the national average of $4,000 and approximately $100 less than the New Jersey state average of $6,065. The most expensive cities, Trenton ($7,230) and the Vineland Area ($6,855), are close to, if not over, $1,000 more than Bergen County, whereas the lease expensive cities, Ocean City ($4,800) and the Atlantic City Area ($5,100), are close to $1,000 less than Bergen County. 

Cost of Assisted Living Comparison Chart

  • Bergen County: $5,916
  • National average: $4,000
  • State average: $6,065
  • Trenton, NJ: $7,230
  • Vineland Area, NJ: $6,855
  • Atlantic City Area, NJ: $5,100
  • Ocean City, NJ: $4,800
  • Kingston, NY: $4,100
  • Albany Area, NY: $5,050

Care Cost Comparison

The biggest factor impacting the cost of care is the level of care an individual needs. Nursing home care in a semiprivate room ($12,091) is more than double the cost of assisted living care and substantially higher than home health costs. Assisted living is an economical choice when it comes to seniors who need assistance with activities, such as meal prep, dressing, bathing and medication management. These costs are typically built into assisted living plans along with room and board and some utilities. Home health costs don’t include an individual’s home upkeep, but usually include light housekeeping, meal prep and personal care assistance. 

Cost of Homemaker/Home Health Aide Comparison Chart

  • Assisted living: $5,916
  • Homemaker services: $4,576
  • Home health aide: $4,767
  • Adult day health: $1,950
  • Nursing home care (semiprivate room): $12,091

Other Financial Assistance Programs for Assisted Living

Elderlife Bridge Loan

Elderlife Financial Services offers short-term loans for seniors who need immediate funding for assisted living or nursing home care while they’re waiting for long-term solutions, such as the sale of a home or benefit approval. Funds are sent directly to the care facility and are paid back in flexible, low-interest installments. 

Eligibility is based on factors such as income and creditworthiness, and approvals can be as fast as 24 hours. Seniors who can’t qualify on their own can include up to six cosigners, which may increase the likelihood of approval and result in lower payments. Installments can be split amongst family members. Lenders typically require that a permanent funding plan be in place prior to loan approval.

Seniors can apply for a bridge loan online or by calling (888) 228-4500.

Long-Term Care Insurance

Some insurance providers offer long-term care insurance policies that can cover the cost of assisted living facilities and nursing homes after an annual deductible is met. These policies can’t help seniors in current need of long-term care but may be available to those who are still relatively healthy and independent but want to plan for the future. Eligibility and terms vary by provider and plan.
