Licensed Assisted Living Program on Site

Assisted Living Inc. (ALI), a non profit 501(c)3 New Jersey charity provides an assisted living program on site licensed through the NJ Department of Health and Senior Services. ALI staff are on site 24 hours a day, with direct care staff from 8 am - 10 pm and staff to answer calls on the overnight shift from 10 pm - 8 am. Direct care staff provide assistance with bathing, dressing, medication administration, meal preparation, arranging transportation, ordering supplies, laundry, housekeeping, and answering calls in order to enable residents who want to age in place, living independently in their apartments, with dignity, privacy and individuality.  ALI staff can assist EIL residents in applying for Medicaid so they can continue to live in their apartment as long as they wish with supports and services to help them age in place. Medicaid MLTSS (Managed Long Term Services and Supports) pays for the assisted living program for qualified residents.

ALI staff also prepare and serve two full meals weekdays - lunch and dinner - in the spacious dining room.  Residents enjoy socializing while they are eating and meeting with their neighbors.  Meals are served by staff on plates with flatware and cloth napkins, keeping with the sustainable philosophy of the apartments, and all residents are offered choices of coffee, hot or cold tea, or water with their meal.

Two days a week, residents enjoy the ALI Social Day extended activity programs with lunch.  Activities include Intergenerational Program with Fisher Middle School students, the College of New Jersey student groups, going to AMC movies, horseshoes, shuffleboard, bingo, chair exercises and stretching, Trenton Thunder Baseball, etc.
