New Jersey also has plenty of assisted living facilities throughout the state to provide seniors with more assistance with their day to day tasks. Residents receive personal care and health services for an average monthly cost of $5,811. Keep in mind that assisted living is not an alternative to nursing home care, but rather, an intermediate level of long-term care.
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.
Finding the right assisted living facility for your elderly loved one is never easy. You want to be sure you find just the right fit—a place where your parent or relative will be comfortable, happy, and able to thrive. With so many options, it can be hard to know where to start.

From finding the right place, to exploring all financial options and resources, to easing concerns during transition, our clients and their loved ones know they can trust Amada Senior Care for the expert advice and support they need.

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.

New Jersey has a housing index of 126.60, making it one of the more expensive states to retire in the United States. A big reason for this is likely that it’s central and close to New York City, where lots of people commute to work. In New Jersey, one bedroom apartments go for $1,128 a month on average (US average is $825 a month). Two bedrooms are approximately $1,373 a month ($1,027 a month the US average).

New Jersey is one of the states at the forefront of providing assistance to elderly persons that are not eligible for Medicaid. There are five programs of great relevance to seniors: JACC, Statewide Respite Care, Alzheimer's Adult Day Care, the Senior Gold and PAAD programs, and Congregate Housing Services. Although not all of these programs provide financial assistance, they may offer services that can enable a senior and their family to save money in other areas, thereby allowing more of their resources to be put toward the cost of care.
My mother-in-law passed away a few years ago in my own home. She came to live with me when she started getting lost driving her car. I promised her that I wouldn’t place her in a nursing home and she promised to give up driving and move in with my wife and I. As a retired teacher, she was extremely helpful with our children, waiting for them at the bus stop in the afternoon and helping them complete their homework before dinner. We would sit together for hours talking about family long gone and reminding our children where they came from. When she died peacefully in her sleep, I was pleased to know that my family and I had made the last years of our loved ones life as safe, pleasant and comfortable as possible.

Other common services include companion and personal care. Companion care helps combat feelings of loneliness and isolation and assists your elderly loved one with simple tasks of living, such as housekeeping, meal preparation, and transportation. Personal care, on the other hand, offers more sensitive care items related to hygiene such as bathing and using the restroom.
My wife's parents have always been a big presence in our lives. Which is great. Not to mention our kids adore them. About once a year, the whole family would drive to the New Jersey shore to spend a week just relaxing by the ocean with our feet in the sand. My wife's father helped the kids build sandcastles, and her mom read novels under the shade of an umbrella. It was, for everyone, the highlight of the year.
