For a long time, this escape to the shore was a tradition in our family. That is, until my wife's father had a mild heart attack a couple years back. After that, he started moving slower; needed more rest. Soon, trips to the shore were too hard on him. It was difficult for everyone to watch this decline, and all we wanted was to be able to help him. Unfortunately, he required the sort of attention that neither I nor my wife could offer; so it was time to consider options.
Many active seniors actually prefer this kind of Condo style living, even if they have no compelling medical needs at all! A NJ state licensed CCRC provides seniors the opportunity to move into a Campus-like setting, where there is the perfect balance of private living, and socialization opportunities. Furthermore CCRC’s provide extremely beneficial financial arrangements which can allow up to 85% of the unused cost of purchase to be refunded to your estate.
No matter who you choose to help you with in-home care the goals are usually the same: to stay independent and in your home for as long as possible. While assisted living communities offer more ready access to support and social companionship, some seniors are not ready for that transition. They may be concerned about the cost of assisted living, or don’t need the ready stimulation of organized social programs, or they may only need minor or temporary assistance to deal with smaller matters of mobility, non-medical support, or companionship.

Independent living is typically the preferred choice of living for seniors who are healthy, active, and don’t require round the clock care.

Seniors who prefer apartment style living can choose to live in a 55+ or 65+ senior apartment community.

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.
