Planning for a program for a continuing care retirement community
The Foundation's program, New Jersey Health Initiatives, was designed to support projects in New Jersey that develop new approaches to resolving the state's health care needs, focusing on the Foundation's goal areas.This is a grant in support of one year of planning for the design of a program of life care at home for middle-income residents of Camden and Burlington Counties. Modeled after a new program called "Friends Life Care at Home" in Pennsylvania, this project will offer an insured array of supportive services, including emergency care, prepared meal delivery, home health care, homemaker services, companion services, adult day care, and up to 100 days of care in a skilled care nursing unit. The principal objectives of the planning stage are to: (1) perform a demographic study and market assessment; (2) conduct actuarial and financial analyses; (3) design an insurance premium and benefit package; (4) develop a package of services; and (5) plan a marketing strategy. If the feasibility study is positive, the grantee will return to the Foundation for implementation funding.
