Other common services include companion and personal care. Companion care helps combat feelings of loneliness and isolation and assists your elderly loved one with simple tasks of living, such as housekeeping, meal preparation, and transportation. Personal care, on the other hand, offers more sensitive care items related to hygiene such as bathing and using the restroom.
What can I say? Mom has always been a bit of a rebel. After high school, she defied her parents by joining the Army Air Corps WASPs and flying planes across the country during WWII. She actually soloed in a plane before she had even driven a car! Grandpa thought she should work on landing a husband, while Grandma felt at least a secretarial desk or department store counter was more "respectable."

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.

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.
New Jersey ranks as one of the more expensive states in the nation as far as the cost of assisted living. As of 2018, the national average is $3,670 / month, but in NJ, residents pay over $1,420 / month more, with the average cost being $5,070. However, state residents should take some comfort in the fact that the cost is not consistently high everywhere in the state. The less expensive areas include Ocean City, in and around Atlantic City, and Vineland-Millville-Bridgeton. In these areas the average cost is closer to $4,270 / month. Residents in the most expensive areas should be aware that they live in these areas, so that they might consider neighboring counties as a cost-saving measure. The Trenton area and almost all of Northern New Jersey has monthly cost averaging between $5,370 and $6,170. Caring for individuals with Alzheimer's can further increase the monthly cost of assisted living by as much as $1,270 / month.
They sent us a truly excellent caregiver whom we now regard as a family member. I have complete trust in our caregiver. She provides a LOT more than just "care". She provides companionship, attention, friendship and I know she genuinely cares. That's all I could ever ask for. And the Service itself has provided excellent support and has accommodated on many important matters. They truly "care" as well. Trust me, this sort caring is what you want to look for when seeking a care provider.

“We’re a family run business and honestly, I think that gives us a different perspective and a unique advantage,” said Terry, when asked what sets Amada Senior Care apart from other home care companies. “My wife and my son are heavily involved and because of that, the seniors we serve don’t just feel like customers to us – they feel like an extension of our family. Our passion is to work together to give you or your elderly loved ones the best care possible.”
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.
"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."

Griswold Home Care of Camden County began in 1988 as part of the Burlington/Camden territory.   Ten years later, in 1998, it was split out and Joe and Maria Bachich stepped in and transformed and invigorated the territory. Joe and Maria knew from experience what the senior care community needed and worked fast to build a team of professional caregivers and staff who lived with the same passion of providing home care for the ill and elderly.

When the war ended, Mom moved to New Hanover, where she worked at Fort Dix and finally agreed to a dinner date with a handsome airman on base—Dad. They bought a stylish rancher in the suburbs. Of course Dad thought she should stay home, cook and clean, but he didn't know the force he was reckoning with. She fought to keep her career, continuing to work part time, even after we girls came into the picture.
