Trenton Senior Demographics

The population of Trenton is ethically and economically diverse and the city was once a leading manufactural center that suffered hardships along with other rust belt cities following the downturn in the industrial sector from the 1970s on. State politicians tried to revive the city by turning it into the center of government and the state government is its leading employer to this day. Seniors represent 8.8% of the city’s 84,000 residents and many more are rapidly approaching the age of retirement.

Residents that are 60 years of age or older are able to benefit from numerous services provided by the City of Trenton’s Division of Community Relations and Social Services Office on Aging. Seniors are able to receive assistance completing forms for various financial assistance programs such as rent abatement, Social Security, Medicare and health insurance. The Office on Aging also hosts many social activities that include dances, bingo, health workshops, recreational trips, painting and more.

Information on New Jersey Nursing Home Abuse & Negligence Lawsuits

Our attorneys have compiled data from settlements and jury verdicts across New Jersey to give you an idea as to how cases are valued. Learn more about the cases below:

Hamilton Grove Healthcare and Rehabilitation
2300 Hamilton Avenue
Hamilton, NJ 08619
(609) 588-5800

Ownership— For profit partnership

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Overall Rating— 2 stars out of 5

2 star rating

Primary concerns: An abysmal health inspection history is the primary cause for concern here. When patients are forced to live in an unsanitary environment or staff does not assist patients with proper hygienic measures, it can result in the development or spread of infections and other communicable diseases. This facility also received a mediocre staff quality rating, which could be linked to its health inspection rating.

Mercerville Center
2240 Whitehorse-Mercerville Road
Mercerville, NJ 08619
(609) 586-7500

Ownership— For profit corporation

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Overall Rating— 4 stars out of 5

4 star rating

Primary concerns: Although this facility has received a four star rating overall, its staff quality rating is a mere two stars. There is a strong link between understaffing and the inability of staff members to tend to the needs of every patient. When staff quality scores fall, other areas of assessment tend to receive poor ratings as well.

Trenton, NJ 08611
(609) 393-8622

Ownership— For profit corporation

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Overall Rating— 1 star out of 5

1 star rating

Primary concerns: This facility is a Special Focus Facility, which means its history of providing substandard care is so severe that it is subjected to more frequent inspections and increasingly severe penalties. If the facility fails to improve in the areas it is failing, it may also lose its ability to accept Medicare and Medicaid payments.

Riverside Nursing and Rehabilitation Center
325 Jersey Street
Trenton, NJ 08611
(609) 394-3400

Ownership— For profit corporation

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Overall Rating— 2 stars out of 5

Trenton, NJ 08638
(609) 656-9291

Ownership— For profit corporation

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

2 star rating

Primary concerns: If not for a poor health inspection record, this facility could be a viable option. Its quality measures and staff quality are highly rated, but its health inspection deficiencies have brought its overall score down significantly.

Providence Nursing and Rehabilitation Center
439 Bellevue Avenue
Trenton, NJ 08618
(609) 396-2646

Ownership— For profit corporation

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes
