Aging-in-place is a goal being promoted by federal and state agencies but may not be realistic for many older adults, especially those with low incomes. These residents can find themselves needing increased assistance with their activities of daily living as well as with medications, housekeeping and more.

Assisted Living Programs (ALPs) are an option provided to older adults as they age in NJ. Licensed by the New Jersey Department of Health, ALPs provide a full array of health care and supportive services that allow seniors to remain home and age-in-place, such as meal preparation, medication administration, personal care, laundry, housekeeping and recreational activities.

There is only one ALP in Bergen County and it’s proving to be a model for other counties in New Jersey: Portable Assisted Living Services (PALS), offered by The Bright Side Family.

Elizabeth Davis, EJ Vizzi and Julie McGaffin will discuss “ALPs and PALS – Lessons on Assisted Living from Bright Side Manor” at the third free “Programs and Innovations Series” webinar sponsored by Parker Health Group, Inc. Hosted by NJ Advocates for Aging Well (NJAAW), the webinar took place on May 25.
