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.

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. 
I would like to share my experience with Griswold Home Care here in Vineland, New Jersey. I live in North Carolina and my mother’s care is very important to me. Some things have become a little difficult for her and I wanted her to have some help in caring for herself and her home. I was pleasantly surprised to find a home health care agency right here in Vineland. Beth, my mother’s caseworker was excellent. Very supportive and kept in constant contact with my mother to make sure her care was up to the standard that Griswold expects. That was not a problem as our home health care provided was an angel. On time, honest, and hard working. Plus, she always puts my mother’s safety first. I have met Arlene numerous times and find her to be one of the most caring people I have ever met. Griswold is flexible and will met the ever changing needs of their clients. Recently my mother was in the hospital and to my surprise both Beth and Arlene came by to check on her. Now that is going the extra mile. I highly recommend Griswold Home Care for any and all of your home health care needs. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.

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.
