New Jersey Alzheimer's Adult Day Care Services
NJ Alzheimer's Day Care is a state funded program that partially covers the cost of adult day care for individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease, dementia or other related memory disorders. The objective is to help support and offer relief from the demands of caregiving for the caregiver. This program is run by the Division of Aging and Community Services and administered locally by over 40 different day care centers.
To qualify for this program, New Jersey residents must be diagnosed with Alzheimer's, dementia or related memory disorder. They must be residing at home or in the community (not in residential care) and they must be receiving personal care or supervision from an informal caregiver.
There may be income limits for participation in the program, however these limits for 2012-2013 are not published and may change with the available funding for the program.
There are Alzheimer's Day Care centers in the following 18 counties; though it is not a requirement that the individual be a resident of the county to receive care in that county.
Benefits / Services
The state of New Jersey will pay up to 75% of the costs of adult day care for 2-3 days a week for persons with Alzheimer’s or related conditions. In the Day Care Centers, individuals are provided with personal care, supervision, social activities and meals.
