Visiting Health & Supportive Services

Visiting Health & Supportive Services is a United Way member agency caring for chronically ill patients, sick children, and the home bound elderly in the comfort of their own home.

Certified Home Health Aides are specially trained, and certified by the New Jersey Board of Nursing. They can help you with personal care, light housekeeping, and meal preparation. They also will work with you to reinforce any physical, speech and occupational therapy regimens prescribed for you.

NeighborCARE provides safety and supervision for adults who cannot remain at home alone. Full time family caregivers are able to address personal, legal or business obligations without worrying about the safety and security of their homebound relative.

The Statewide Respite Care Program is a New-Jersey-funded program which provides limited assistance to families for their respite needs. The program can pay for short-term nursing home placement, adult day care service, certified home health aides or companion care to qualifying families. Income guidelines define eligibility.

In-Home Caregiver Training provides the hands-on skills that allow family caregivers to feel more confident in maintaining a family member or friend. A registered nurse assesses the needs of the individual, then develops a plan which addresses their special situation.

For more information on these programs, call 908-788-2562.

Hunterdon Medical Center’s Home Health Services staff of nurses, therapists, social workers, and home health aides will work with you to find ways to help you or your loved one feel better, manage a chronic illness, or recover sooner. They can answer your questions about medication or symptom management, therapeutic regimens, and better nutrition.

For more information, call (908) 788-6138.

Hunterdon SafeLine

Independence and self-reliance are important to everyone. However, many of us may experience health conditions or mobility challenges which threaten that independence as we once knew it. Security issues are often at the heart of a decision to relocate a frail elderly family member.

With a personal response system, families can rest assured that their loved one is safe and secure in their environment. The personal response operator finds and dispatches the right help for any situation – and provides follow-up with family members.

A lightweight waterproof medallion activates a communicator, putting the client in touch with their operator. The operator is able to contact family or friends – even emergency response personnel – to come to the home in case an emergency arises. The caring connection provided by SafeLine assures that the client is never “all alone.”

For more information, call 908-788-6550.

Caregiver Support Groups
Hunterdon Behavioral Health offers monthly meetings to caregivers of older adults. These meetings provide great opportunities to meet with other caregivers and to discuss common topics of concern. Caregiver support meetings take place in a variety of locations around Hunterdon County.
