The Jersey Assistance for Community Caregiving (JACC) program is opening their waiting list in Union County and can now serve up to 50 clients per month. JACC provides a broad array of in-home services and supports that enable an individual at risk of placement in a nursing facility to remain in their home.
JACC services may include care management, home health aides, home modifications, in-patient respite care, special medical equipment and supplies, a personal emergency response system, home delivered meals, and adult day care. Care recipients must be 60 years of age or older and live in Union County.
