With a waterfront location on the Hudson and New York Bay, Jersey City provides panoramic views of Manhattan’s memorable skyline. The city prides itself on its senior services, which it provides through its Division of Senior Affairs. Jersey City is home to 262,075 people as of July 2019, with 11.1% of the population aged 65 and older.

Seniors who want or need assistance to remain living independently at home pay on average $4,957 for home care in Jersey City, according to the Genworth Cost of Care Survey in 2020. This is the same cost that they pay each month for home health care, which includes simple medical care in addition to homemaker services. This is higher than the national average, which is $4,481 for home care and $4,576 for home health care.

 Note: Home care cost data wasn’t available for Jersey City, so data for the closest city, New York, was used.

At Caring.com, we’ve compiled a comprehensive directory of every home care provider in the Jersey City 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.

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 – often times 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.
