The Holland Christian Home is a senior residence providing superior Life Care for over 100 years. We are certified by the State of New Jersey as a Continuing Care Retirement Community. In addition, we are a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit corporation. The Home is a private facility and receives no funding from Medicare, Medicaid, or state or local governments.
LIFECARE is a continuum of care given for the rest of your life, including the assurance of skilled nursing care if you should need it at any time, at no added cost. Please see below for more information on costs.
Among many the services and benefits every residents of the Home enjoys are a private room with bath, 3 nutritious meals daily, professional medication management, access to our Mountain View Nursing Unit– with round-the-clock skilled nursing care and a qualified physician always on call, choice of multiple daily activities, access to all public areas, such as the spacious grounds, meticulously manicured gardens, chapel, library, resident computer room, coffee shops and special occasion rooms, cable television, laundry facilities , housekeeping services, $50/month cash payment for personal needs and access to limited on-site bank services (available twice each month).
Applicants must be at least 75 years of age, ambulatory and in relatively good health. Medical certification from an applicant's physician and a satisfactory pre-admission physical from our medical director are both mandatory requirements. Seniors who need limited assistance with daily activities such as grooming and dressing may be eligible for our Extra Care rooms.
Our business office will provide an application form. Once the form is completed and returned, you will be contacted when there is availability. When a room becomes available to you, the typical entry process takes about 30 days. There is often a waiting list for rooms at the Home, so it's never too early to fill out an application!
Residents pay a one-time entrance fee (currently $295,000 for singles; there is a discount for couples who jointly occupy one room). Residents also make a monthly Social Security and/or pension contribution (currently $1300/month); during the first 8 years of residency, any excess income is refunded to the resident. Residents are also responsible maintaining secondary medical insurance and covering prescription, hearing and vision expenses. However, if at any time you require it, you have immediate access to the professional nursing staff in our Mountain View Nursing Unit at no additional cost.
Over an eight year period (which is the average length of stay at the Home), our costs are significantly lower than similar facilities in our area. These costs calculate to approximately $144 per day… unheard of in the health care industry today!
A.Absolutely not! All assets in excess of the Home entrance fee are retained by you. In fact, residency at the Holland Christian Home guarantees an individual's assets from being depleted due to excessive medical bills, or an extended stay at a health care facility.
