In addition to drawing from our extensive experience and working relationships with most of the senior living communities throughout Northern New Jersey, the Amada senior housing team also helps families explore options that may make it easier to cover the cost of residential care. We guide clients through the application process and help them submit claims and manage benefits to make the most of resources such as veterans’ aid programs, long-term care insurance, and other non-traditional payment options. Our clients deserve the very best care, and we do all we can to ensure that they receive it.
Perhaps the main reason to engage an elder care specialist is the safety of an older adult. Though many older adults reside with family caregivers, there are others who are alone in their homes. When a home care provider calls, anything that might be going wrong can be put to rights. Even if a family member is in the home and providing care, without a professional eye, that person might miss changes in the condition of the elderly patient.
Adult daycare centers are a great option for seniors who need assistance with day to day tasks and to socialize with others their age. There are 47 adult daycare centers in the state, with the most expensive ones around the Ocean City metropolitan area. Adult daycare centers in this area have an average cost of $25,740 a year. Trenton generally has the lowest cost adult daycare facilities, averaging $21,255 per year. Overall, adult daycare centers in New Jersey come out to an average cost of $22,360 a year.
Even adult day care in New Jersey well exceeds the national average, which as of 2018, is $71 / day. In fact, it does so by approximately 20%, costing approximately $88 / day. Although even at that cost, adult day care is still one of the most affordable ways to care for the elderly. Surprisingly, the areas that have the most expensive assisted living have some of the most economic averages for adult day care (Trenton and North Jersey). Here, the average daily cost is $83. The most costly adult day care can be found in Ocean City and the Vineyard area, where the average cost is between $94 and $100 / day.
"I wanted to tell you how amazing Christine was in managing my parents with no power. She did a great job and packed them up so we were able to walk them down three flights of stairs in the dark, so that we could move them to my house this morning for a few days. Elaine also was terrific in getting there this am, and walking up the steps with her luggage with no help. We are so grateful for their amazing care and devotion to my parents! Thank you!"

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.
