An applicant is also permitted countable resources up to $2,000. Note, one’s primary home, up to an equity value of $858,000, given the applicant or their spouse lives in it, is considered exempt. In addition, the applicant’s vehicle is not considered a "countable" asset, provided it is in use by the applicant. Being over the asset limit does not automatically disqualify one from Medicaid. However, one has to proceed with caution, as simply giving away assets or selling them for less than they are worth can result in a period of Medicaid ineligibility. This is because New Jersey has a 5-year look-back period (from the date of Medicaid application) where all asset transfers are considered. If one has gifted assets or sold them cheaply, there will be a period of time that one cannot receive Medicaid benefits. However, there are ways one can spend down excess resources without violating the look-back period. One can pay off debts, such as their mortgage, or make home modifications that increase the safety and accessibility of their home. Examples include remodeling a bathroom to make it wheelchair accessible, adding a chair lift, and installing wheelchair ramps.

Once we know the type of care a senior will require, we then discuss other factors that will play a role in the selection of the ideal community. After all, we know that care and assistance is necessary to keep seniors safe, but that finding the placement that will best suit their location, lifestyle, and social needs is key to ensuring their comfort and enjoyment of life.

My name is Stephan Rymal and I have been the Director of the Burlington County Office of Griswold Home Care since 1997. My Burlington County roots date back to my youth, when I visited my uncles’ farms on Route 70 past Olga’s Diner and the Route 73 circle. I still remember swimming in the cedar ponds in the summer and ice skating on them in the winter. My cousins and I would walk through the fields eating fresh Jersey tomatoes with their sweet juices dripping down our faces during the day and steam Jersey corn in their husks on the grill for dinner.

They sent us a truly excellent caregiver whom we now regard as a family member. I have complete trust in our caregiver. She provides a LOT more than just "care". She provides companionship, attention, friendship and I know she genuinely cares. That's all I could ever ask for. And the Service itself has provided excellent support and has accommodated on many important matters. They truly "care" as well. Trust me, this sort caring is what you want to look for when seeking a care provider.
