Brookdale Echelon Lake was rather dreary and I thought it wasn't very welcoming in terms of the atmosphere. The staff who gave the tour was very nice, she did say that a renovation was coming, which I appreciated. But we had to make a decision on the place right away. From the outside it looked very nice, it had a very...Read more Brookdale Echelon Lake reviews
Brookdale did not follow up. My mother fell and broke her hip at 9 p.m. at night and wasn’t assisted until 10 a.m. the following morning. She was billed for the occupancy of the unit after they took my mother’s possessions out of there. I would not send anybody there, unless the facility was changed dramatically in the...Read more Brookdale Evesham reviews
My parents moved into Brookdale Evesham. Everything is wonderful, and they're very pleased. They already had their holiday Christmas party which was lovely, they have mahjong, card games, and they're just getting acclimated. They have a good size apartment, it's one of the larger ones, so mom could bring some of her st...Read more Brookdale Evesham reviews
Brookdale Evesham was a very nice community physically speaking, but it's too big. The hallways were too long, and with my mother's age, her travel to and from the common areas would be just too far. The building was not small enough or contained enough, it was too spread out. The staff who gave the tour was very nice ...Read more Brookdale Evesham reviews
I've checked out Brandywine Living at Voorhees. The bedroom was so small. They wanted me to put my bedroom furniture in the kitchen. It was a nice place, but the apartments were so small. My bedroom set wouldn't fit. I had no place to put my kitchen set, and I had to put the dresser in the kitchen for my bedroom set an...Read more Brandywine Living at Voorhees reviews

Cost of Assisted Living Comparison Chart
New Jersey has some of the highest senior care costs in the country thanks in part to the relatively high cost of living in the state. Nursing home care in a semiprivate room costs nearly double what assisted living does. While a home health aide and homemaker services cost about $750 less per month than assisted living, it’s important to realize that residential senior care costs usually include room and board.

Millions of low-income Americans receive basic health coverage through Medicaid, the nationwide health insurance program that was created in 1965. Medicaid is jointly funded by federal and state governments, and in New Jersey, Medicaid is administered through the NJ FamilyCare program under the Department of Human Services, Division of Medical Assistance and Health Services.
As of 1995, New Jersey shifted Medicaid beneficiaries from the previous fee-for-service program to managed care through five health plans in order to expand services and benefits.
Seniors aged 65 and older who are permanent New Jersey residents may qualify for free NJ FamilyCare coverage if they meet the following criteria:
In New Jersey, residents who receive Social Security Income payments are automatically enrolled in the NJ FamilyCare program.
Countable assets include:
Asset exemptions include one vehicle, household furnishings, jewelry and a non-revocable burial trust.
Note: New Jersey has a 5-year look-back period for all Medicaid applicants and audits any assets that the applicant gave away, sold or otherwise liquidated during the 60-month period prior to applying for Medicaid. Penalties under the look-back program may include a period of ineligibility for Medicaid coverage that is determined by dividing the total value of the excess assets by the average monthly cost for private nursing home care.
Seniors who are otherwise excluded from Medicaid coverage in New Jersey due to excess income or assets may qualify for Medicaid services under the Medically Needy Segment. This program allows seniors to subtract some medical costs from their monthly income in order to reduce their Medicaid-assessed income enough to qualify for NJ FamilyCare enrollment.
New Jersey seniors who are Medicaid-eligible are automatically enrolled in the Medicaid Managed Long Term Services and Supports (MLTSS) program, which recently replaced HCBC waivers in the state. This program gives seniors access to all NJ FamilyCare Plan A Benefits as well as a wide range of services, including care management, mental health and assisted living.
