Monmouth 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 Monmouth County:

Meals on Wheels of Monmouth County

Address: 1201 Springwood Ave, Asbury Park, NJ 07712
Phone Number:  (732) 807-2708

The Monmouth County Meals on Wheels program offers noon meal service to homebound seniors throughout Monmouth County and is available to elders over age 60. Limited weekend meal deliveries are also available to completely homebound elderly individuals. Funding for Meals on Wheels comes from the county government, a USDA grant, donations for meals from participants and from donors. The program also offers group lunches across several senior centers throughout the principal towns and cities inside Monmouth County.

Project Lifesaver

Address: 3000 Kozloski Road, Freehold, NJ, 07728
Phone Number:  (732) 431-7450

This initiative from the Monmouth County Sheriff’s Department and the Monmouth County Office on Aging offers seniors residing in the county a bracelet that comes with a small radio frequency device. County Sheriff’s officers can then use this to locate elderly individuals who become lost or disoriented. The device is available free of charge to senior residents and is especially recommended for those undergoing the onset of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Sheriff’s deputies visit each participant’s home once every 60 days to recharge these devices and make sure they’re working properly.

Monmouth County Office on Aging

Address: 3000 Kozloski Road, Freehold, NJ, 07728
Phone Number:  (732) 431-7450

The Office on Aging of New Jersey offers a range of support services and programs for elderly residents of the state who are aged 60 or older. The specific support programs directly offered by the Office on Aging or coordinated through it include several senior centers throughout the county, free legal aid by South Jersey Legal Services Inc. and a Special Citizens Area Transportation program for essential trips inside the county. The office also offers adult protective services and a residential maintenance program that delivers emergency home repair and cleaning for qualified seniors.

New Jersey Shares

Address: 4 Walter E. Foran Boulevard, Suite 105, Flemington, NJ 08822
Phone Number: (866) 657-4273

Elderly residents of New Jersey who don’t qualify for state utility assistance programs (LIHEAP and USF) and who earn no more than 400% of the Federal Poverty Guideline can apply to New Jersey Shares for temporary utility payment assistance to cover emergency financial situations. The program is open year-round and applies for water, gas, electricity and telecommunications bill 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.
