I explored several business opportunities before deciding to open my Griswold Home Care office in Hillsborough. It was the Griswold family’s sincere mission to provide simple, affordable, high quality care that drew me in. I fondly remember leaving my meeting with the Griswold family, wondering, will this esteemed company award me a franchise– not the other way around.

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.
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.

"Overall they've been good with me. Rona in the office calls me when the caregiver has some personal errands and needs to take off. They would always ask me if I want a replacement in or not. Their invoicing if fine. They got back to me when I reached out to them a few times. There's been no real issues. We had a couple of times where my uncle was very stubborn and they've tried new people. They've been really understanding in finding the right person. It's been a very good experience with them and my uncle seems very happy."
