Nationwide in 2016, the average cost for non-medical home care is $20 per hour with the state averages ranging from $15 – $26 per hour. It should be noted that these are average costs from home care agencies. Private individuals can be retained to provide most of the same services with fees that are 20% – 30% lower. However, these independents are typically uninsured, do not go through background checks and may be unable to provide alternatives in case they are not available to work on short notice.
Medicaid is an insurance program designed for low-income individuals and families. A distinction should be made between regular Medicaid (sometimes called State Plan) and Institutional Medicaid (also called Long Term Care Medicaid). Long Term Care Medicaid is more relevant to the elderly and this webpage. Upon creation, Long Term Care Medicaid was intended to pay for nursing home care, and limited personal care, for individuals who required it, but could not afford it. Over time, programs were added that allowed those who were eligible for nursing home care to receive that level of care outside of nursing homes. These programs are referred to as Medicaid Waivers, and in New Jersey, these programs fall under a Comprehensive Medicaid Waiver. Please note, in New Jersey, Medicaid for the elderly is also called FamilyCare Aged, Blind, Disabled (ABD) Programs.
In addition to drawing from our extensive experience and working relationships with most of the senior living communities throughout Northern New Jersey, the Amada senior housing team also helps families explore options that may make it easier to cover the cost of residential care. We guide clients through the application process and help them submit claims and manage benefits to make the most of resources such as veterans’ aid programs, long-term care insurance, and other non-traditional payment options. Our clients deserve the very best care, and we do all we can to ensure that they receive it.
2.) SRCP, the Statewide Respite Care Program, offers reduced rate or free respite care to help individuals caring for a loved one gain relief from their duties. Respite care is provided in-home or out-of-home. Other services also covered by this program include private duty nursing and homemaker services. For lower income families this can reduce their out-of-pocket home care costs.

Our favorite experiences have come from pulling into the driveway of the pretty farmhouse or stylish city home that we’ve admired hundreds of times and knowing that we will help to care for the client who has established a life inside. These homes birthed the memories that shaped our community. We feel honored when invited inside to arrange care for a member of the household. Greater than our admiration for their beautiful homes is our appreciation for the elderly and disabled members of our community’s need for home care. It is rewarding to know that we make a difference in the lives of our clients.
As we say in the Camden County office, home care has never been easier than with Griswold Home Care. However, our job wasn’t easy!

We understood the stress and fears our clients faced when they were told they needed someone to help out with senior care or they couldn’t remain in their home.

As a non-profit Methodist organization, United Methodist Communities seeks to be revenue neutral between costs charged to our residents, and the cost of actually providing 1st class care across all our communities. While the cost of living in our communities is at or below the cost of living in similar communities in each geography, the cost of providing care and fulfilling our lifetime commitments to residents no longer able to pay, escalates every year. In fact this shortfall reaches into the millions of dollars every year, and if not for the United Methodist Communities foundation and its charitable support, United Methodist Communities would have a staggering deficit that no amount of goodwill could bridge.

If you’ve always dreamed of retiring somewhere with both mountains and beaches, and not too far out from New York City, then New Jersey is a great state to consider. The state offers a plethora of open spaces, and the mountains there are popular destinations for people to ski, bike, birdwatch, fish, camp, and more all year round. New Jersey has four distinct seasons, so residents can enjoy the gradual cool down when summer transitions into fall, and some snowfall in the winter.

Caregiver burnout is a real issue that too many families try to ignore for too long. One way to prevent and treat burnout is to use respite care services. These can come in a number of different forms. There are respite care programs that operate in assisted living facilities, others that operate more like an adult day care center, and still some that provide home care services.
It was Paul and Lori Hogan's own personal experience caring for their 100-year-old grandmother in her home that inspired them to launch Home Instead Senior Care in 1994. They realized many families had the same need for in-home care and elder companionship that could help seniors live independently at home. The demand for these important services has been so great, that the company's network now has 800 locally owned franchises across North America and around the globe.
