I could not be happier with my decision to join the home care industry. By making an affordable, quality home care service available to my community, I am able to improve the quality of life for so many senior citizens. What’s ever more rewarding is speaking to satisfied family members who are both pleased with Mom or Dad’s care and relieved by their peace of mind, which our care services have restored.

Our concept is simple yet effective - we match seniors who need help with active seniors who want to help. As we age, there are many challenges that can make it difficult to live at home safely, maintain a healthy, active lifestyle and continue to participate in the activities we enjoy. Family members often provide a tremendous amount of support to their aging loved ones, but it is important for them to be able to take time to relax and recharge as well. Accepting help is easier when the companion or caregiver is a peer who can relate on a personal level, someone who understands the desire to remain at home and independent.
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.
Assisted living communities provide help with basic activities of daily living; like bathing, dressing, feeding and assistance with transferring and mobility. Some states allow assisted living communities to offer medication reminders or assistance. Assisted living facilities differ from nursing homes in that they typically do not offer more complex medical assistance.

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.
