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.
Our clients depend on Senior Helpers to help give them the independence they need each and every day. Seeking assistance for yourself or a loved one can be an overwhelming process, and Senior Helpers is uniquely positioned to provide the care needed to help you remain safely at home.

As a non-profit Methodist organization, United Methodist Communities seeks to be revenue neutral between costs charged to our residents, and the cost of actually providing 1st class care across all our communities. While the cost of living in our communities is at or below the cost of living in similar communities in each geography, the cost of providing care and fulfilling our lifetime commitments to residents no longer able to pay, escalates every year. In fact this shortfall reaches into the millions of dollars every year, and if not for the United Methodist Communities foundation and its charitable support, United Methodist Communities would have a staggering deficit that no amount of goodwill could bridge.

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.

Over fifty percent of residents in Assisted Living and Nursing Homes have some form of dementia or cognitive impairment. Alzheimer wings or Memory Care communities exist to provide safe and specialized housing for these residents. The units are usually on a secure floor or section of a care center, and are staffed with health care providers trained to provide specialized...

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.
