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.

Even if your elderly loved one insists on remaining at home, doing so may not be in their best interests. A parent or elderly loved one in failing or deteriorating health is not the only one in jeopardy; family members managing care may also be under a lot of stress and typically find out they’ve bitten off more than they can chew when it comes to taking care of a relative while trying to have and maintain their own life.

Caregiver burnout is a real issue that too many families try to ignore for too long. One way to prevent and treat burnout is to use respite care services. These can come in a number of different forms. There are respite care programs that operate in assisted living facilities, others that operate more like an adult day care center, and still some that provide home care services.

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. 
Taking care of yourself and having support are important to managing your caregiving responsibilities. Utilizing respite care before becoming overwhelmed can be invaluable to everyone involved, including you. Engaging respite care services gives you a chance to revitalize and to do the things that fulfill and replenish you. The peace-of-mind knowing that your loved one is spending time with a compassionate and nurturing caregiver in a familiar surrounding is invaluable.
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.
