Three newly built communities, developed by New Standard Senior Living, a Red Bank-based assisted living provider that specializes in Medicaid facilities, are available to South Jersey seniors who are in need of affordable assisted living.
All three communities feature individual (single occupant only) studio apartment-style residences. The Millville community offers 154 units, while the second, Egg Harbor Township location offers 166 units that are filling fast. The last of the initial three communities, located in Hammonton, is nearing its completion, with 174 units ready this spring.
NSSL said the communities are the first of their kind in the state of New Jersey and are designated to provide a much-needed solution for affordable assisted living for New Jersey seniors. Affordable being key — especially for seniors who are not in need of skilled nursing facilities and who cannot afford market-rate assisted living residences. Affordability, however, should not suggest shortcuts in senior living and care standards. Quite the opposite, the NSSL’s mission is to bring high quality, affordable senior living, health and wellness — thus, the New Standard — to low-income seniors.
The NSSL communities offer private living residences with a private bath in state-of-the-art, smart-building complexes that are fully ADA accessible to accommodate all residents, including those with visual, hearing, motor and cognitive disabilities. Additionally, each community was developed with a green standard, has ASHRE Level 2 and Energy Star certifications and all three facilities were designed to accommodate solar energy.
