New Jersey senior home care fills a need that arises when older adults are not able to take care of themselves, but are not interested in leaving their homes to live in any type of care facility. In-home care brings the expertise and compassion of trained health professionals to the bedside of the person who needs extra care. Senior home care workers can administer medicines, change dressings, and help with personal care procedures like dressing and bathing. Home elder care seems like a new concept, but hearkens back to the good old days when doctors made house calls. Home health care is driven partly by cost concerns, as it combines many services into one visit.

"Last year, I was looking for assistance for my mom, who suffers from dementia. In an effort to keep my mom's mind stimulated and her body active, I had been researching senior caregiving resources online. My interest was to find a local woman who would understand my mom's situation and act as a companion to her in my absence. Thankfully, upon locating the site, www.synergyhomecare.com, I called and spoke with Rona Fitzgerald, Senior Care Manager and Casey Holstein, the Owner of the company. After hearing how they provide top quality eldercare and Alzheimer's Disease assistance, I was reassured that SYNERGY would be able to fill the void in my mom's life, without tying my family up in a long-term caregiver contract. The company specializes in providing a friendly, helping hand around the house, from basic housekeeping and companionship to personal or memory care services and each of their caregivers is subject to an extensive screening process. Once we were paired with a successful match for my mom, I met with both Rona and the caregiver, Filomena Mora at my mom's house in Roseland in Nov. 2009. Filomena was equipped with a long list of positive references and has turned out to be an incredible asset to my mom. She is friendly, conscientious and has great passion for her work. I feel blessed that we managed to secure someone who has a warm heart and a gentle hand, as my mother trusts her and it means the world to me and my family. If you are struggling to find quality caregivers, I recommend that you give the SYNERGY team a call as they have always been trustworthy and reliable and responsive to our needs."

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.

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.
After Mom and Dad retired, they stayed so busy. When they weren't traveling, they were playing cards with friends, dining out with the neighbors, volunteering for some community group or church project. When Dad's health took a turn, Mom was determined to stay in the house, taking care of him herself, day and night, for over two years before he died. Now that he's gone, we've noticed she's not getting out much and I don't think she ever has a decent meal. She's too independent to come and live with Sis or me, and we just live too far away to help as much as we'd like to.
