You may be surprised to hear this, but there is a government subsidy program that may help you pay for assisted living.
The State of New Jersey’s Department of Human Services offers the MLTSS program. This program enables older adults to receive a broad array of supportive and health services by residing in an assisted living facility. These older adults must be at risk of nursing home placement and who meet income and resource requirements.
All eligible New Jersey residents can enroll in MLTSS. Bright Side Manor is one of a very few facilities in northern New Jersey that participates extensively with the MLTSS program. Unlike other facilities, we do not require that residents pay privately before transitioning onto MLTSS. For questions about the MLTSS eligibility, please contact your local County Welfare Agency (Board of Social Services) for your community.
For further information, please visit NJ MLTSS or contact your local area agency on aging at 1-877-222-3737.
