Description of Fellowship Village
Age Comfortably and Gracefully in Your Own Home
What do a 92-year-old retired school teacher, a 74-year-old retired Bell Labs mathematician and his wife, and an 81-year-old recreational pilot all have in common? They are all part of a growing culture change amongst seniors to “age in place,” in their own home, instead of in a continuing care retirement community or assisted living facility.. All four are enrolled as members of the Fellowship Senior Living at Home program— Central/Northern New Jersey’s first Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) “without walls.” Although the Fellowship Senior Living at Home model was launched in September 2011, the “At Home” model has been around for over 20 years, with 14 successful programs currently operating throughout the U.S. and more than 10 under development.
The Fellowship Senior Living at Home program is geared to active and independent seniors who want to put a plan in place for their future long- term care needs. “The focus of the program is on the highest quality care as well as the preservation of assets and legacy,” says Joe Paccione, Vice President of Home Community Based Services. With skyrocketing rates for long term care, the Fellowship Senior Living at Home program provides financial protection by offering services at a fraction of what they would otherwise cost. It is an alternative or supplement to long-term care insurance and, unlike most policies, has no elimination periods, no maximum daily benefits or policy limits, and no claim or reimbursement forms to fill out. “Whether you have a minor setback or a more complicated illness, services begin as soon as you need them and can be provided on a temporary or permanent basis,” says Paccione. There are a variety of Plan options that all provide services for a lifetime with the full support, guidance, and advocacy of a designated Personal Care Coordinator assigned to each member.
The Fellowship Senior Living at Home program provides comprehensive continuum care services, such as housekeepers, companions, certified home health aides, live-in assistance, assisted living, and skilled nursing levels of care for members experiencing deficiencies in their activities of daily living. Ancillary services such as an emergency response system, home safety inspection, transportation, social and wellness programs, adult day care, and concierge services are also included at no additional cost.
Though tailored to seniors, the Fellowship Senior Living at Home program is valued by their adult children and families. “While most adult children want to honor and take care of their parents or grandparents, most are busy with their own family and career obligations. Even if time is not a factor, the process can be emotionally draining. The Fellowship Senior Living at Home program removes that burden and provides peace of mind not only to our members but to the ones they love.” says Paccione.
