Mercer County proposes legislation for “Naturally Occurring Retirement Community” program…

August 28th, 2012 No Comments

Seniors who live in a “Naturally Occurring Retirement Community” (NORC) throughout Mercer County, NJ, may receive elder care help if legislation passes. A NORC is any community in which seniors inhabit over 50% of the homes or apartments. As residents in a community age, but do not move to another location, a senior community is naturally developed. In Mercer County, Park Place Apartments in Ewing is one local example.

Legislation for a program in Mercer County has been proposed to help these NORCs with offering health screenings, medication management, mental health screenings, nursing on-site, shopping assistance, etc. If successful, it would be offered state-wide.
