For most people, a nursing home or even assisted living facility is a last resort – they plan on staying in their home as long as they can.
The Jewish Home Family, a New Jersey-based nonprofit dealing with elder care that runs two cutting-edge facilities has turned its attention to facilitating older adults’ wishes to stay in their homes as long as possible.
The first step is looking at the individual situation. Aging Life Care Management professionals are experts in bringing together all the medical information, coupling it with years of experience with what works and offering a plan of care for your loved one.
Next is a visit to the home with a team from Safely@Home, which offers home modification and a subscription service that takes care of routine home maintenance and acts as a single point-of-contact for all the work that maintaining a home involves.
A good caregiver is hard to find. Over the years, the Jewish Home Family, which is a 100-year-old nonprofit community organization, has become quite good at finding caregivers with that special familial love that gives you the peace of mind you and your loved one deserve. Recently launched, @HomeCare is the fastest growing division of the Jewish Home Family.
There is more to life than care and safety, though. Social activities and stimulating lectures are a critical part of living an enriching life, even for the oldest among us. The Gallen Adult Day Program combines a rich array of programming with the benefits of the Jewish Home Family campus. Participants have access to rehabilitation therapies, a beauty salon, podiatrist, dentist and more – with transportation door to door each day.
