Cape May County covers the southernmost part of New Jersey State and is one of its most popular destinations for tourism. This economically vibrant county is mostly coastal and has a climate with breezier summer weather and lighter winters. The number of natural, tourist and social attractions available throughout Cape May County is very diverse. Enjoyable and popular places include the county’s many beaches and the Cape May Promenade. The largest town in the county, Ocean City, offers its famous boardwalk and numerous fine dining locations. Fishing excursions are also available.

Cape May has a population of 92,039 residents, of whom 27.3% of them are over 64 years old — this is well above the national average. Cape May also offers access to fairly robust healthcare through the Cape Regional Health System. Based on the Genworth Cost of Care 2020 Survey, the average price of homemaker and home health aide services in the county is $4,362 for both, which is just below respective U.S. averages of $4,481 and $4,576.

Note: Home care cost data wasn’t available for Cape May, so data for the closest city, Ocean City, was used.

At Caring.com, we’ve compiled a comprehensive directory of every home care provider in the Cape May County area – complete with types of care provided, services offered and reviews from families who’ve actually used the service. In addition to our in-depth provider listings, we’ve compiled a list of resources to help seniors and their families access all the tools they need to age in place safely and gracefully.

Cape May County Home Care Resources 

Home care services are only one of the pieces needed for seniors to gracefully age in place. There are many services and programs that are low-cost or free, that enable seniors to enjoy an independent lifestyle in the comfort of their own home, such as help with home modifications, meal delivery services, and more. Below, we’ve compiled a few of the most helpful resources in Cape May County:

Its services are varied and include group meals at four senior centers, Meals on Wheels home food deliveries, counseling on access to other benefits programs and coordination for the State Health Insurance and Assistance Program.

In Cape May this is the Native American Advancement Corporation. Seniors 60 or older can gain acceptance automatically if they’re receiving Supplemental Security Income Payments.

Determining Your Loved One’s Need for In-Home Care

Aging can be a difficult process, and loved ones may not always ask for help – oftentimes it’s up to their family to evaluate their need for help around the house. While no two situations are exactly alike, this checklist can help you and your loved ones determine when it’s time to start the search for a home care provider.


Guidelines for Talking About In-Home Care

If you’ve determined that your loved one needs the assistance of a care provider in their home, it may be time for a difficult conversation. Handled correctly, however, this process can bring a family together and ensure that everyone’s concerns are addressed. Use this PDF as a starting point to help the conversation stay as positive and productive as possible.
