At our assisted living facilities, you only pay for the care that you receive. This philosophy can save families literally tens of thousands of dollars every year.
The state's recently created Medicaid Managed Long Term Services and Supports (MLTSS), a managed care system, falls under the Comprehensive Medicaid Waiver. Under this system, there are no enrollment caps, meaning anyone who is eligible to receive services can do so. Via this program, supports for a variety of services are provided in the home, assisted living, an adult foster care home, or in adult day care. Benefits include home / vehicle modifications, meal delivery, personal emergency response systems, and personal assistance. Program participants are able to self-direct certain home-based supportive care, such as personal assistance and homemaker services. This means they are able to hire the individual of their liking, including some family members. The Global Options or GO Waiver was absorbed into this waiver in 2014.

"Overall they've been good with me. Rona in the office calls me when the caregiver has some personal errands and needs to take off. They would always ask me if I want a replacement in or not. Their invoicing if fine. They got back to me when I reached out to them a few times. There's been no real issues. We had a couple of times where my uncle was very stubborn and they've tried new people. They've been really understanding in finding the right person. It's been a very good experience with them and my uncle seems very happy."
Hello, I am Ted Dzvileski, owner and operator of your local Griswold Home Care office of Somerset County, NJ. I joined the Griswold Home Care franchise family in 2002 because I saw an increased need for private care services both nationwide and in my community. As our nation’s elderly population continues to grow, and families are busier than ever, more people are in need of extra support as they age.
To qualify for NJ Long Term Care Medicaid, an applicant's functional ability, monthly income, and countable resources are considered. A single individual, as of 2018, can have up to $2,250 / month in income. Income in excess can be allocated to a Qualifying Income Trust (QIT). This is a way to effectively lower countable income, helping one to become income eligible for long-term care Medicaid.

New Jersey has a housing index of 126.60, making it one of the more expensive states to retire in the United States. A big reason for this is likely that it’s central and close to New York City, where lots of people commute to work. In New Jersey, one bedroom apartments go for $1,128 a month on average (US average is $825 a month). Two bedrooms are approximately $1,373 a month ($1,027 a month the US average).
My mother-in-law passed away a few years ago in my own home. She came to live with me when she started getting lost driving her car. I promised her that I wouldn’t place her in a nursing home and she promised to give up driving and move in with my wife and I. As a retired teacher, she was extremely helpful with our children, waiting for them at the bus stop in the afternoon and helping them complete their homework before dinner. We would sit together for hours talking about family long gone and reminding our children where they came from. When she died peacefully in her sleep, I was pleased to know that my family and I had made the last years of our loved ones life as safe, pleasant and comfortable as possible.
When considering a senior living community, it is important that our clients and their loved ones honestly assess the level of care they will require. For individuals who anticipate the need for complex medical services, a nursing home may be the best place to help them stay safe and comfortable. However, some of our senior clients just want to simplify their lives and receive assistance with some basic activities of daily living, and for such individuals an assisted living community may be a better fit.
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.
