Medicaid is an insurance program designed for low-income individuals and families. A distinction should be made between regular Medicaid (sometimes called State Plan) and Institutional Medicaid (also called Long Term Care Medicaid). Long Term Care Medicaid is more relevant to the elderly and this webpage. Upon creation, Long Term Care Medicaid was intended to pay for nursing home care, and limited personal care, for individuals who required it, but could not afford it. Over time, programs were added that allowed those who were eligible for nursing home care to receive that level of care outside of nursing homes. These programs are referred to as Medicaid Waivers, and in New Jersey, these programs fall under a Comprehensive Medicaid Waiver. Please note, in New Jersey, Medicaid for the elderly is also called FamilyCare Aged, Blind, Disabled (ABD) Programs.

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.
There are three types of adult day care in New Jersey. Those who don’t have any special medical needs can go to social adult day care. People with health conditions that need to be attended to during the day can go to adult day health services. Finally, those with Alzheimer’s disease can go to an Alzheimer’s adult day care service, which is subsidized and available for a sliding scale fee.

Nationwide in 2016, the average cost for non-medical home care is $20 per hour with the state averages ranging from $15 – $26 per hour. It should be noted that these are average costs from home care agencies. Private individuals can be retained to provide most of the same services with fees that are 20% – 30% lower. However, these independents are typically uninsured, do not go through background checks and may be unable to provide alternatives in case they are not available to work on short notice.

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.
