Jersey Assistance for Community Caregiving (JACC) Program
What is JACC?
JACC is a State-funded program that provides a broad array of in-home and community-based services to individuals age 60 and older who meet clinical eligibility for nursing home level of care and who desire to remain in their homes within the community. The JACC program is designed with the goal of diverting or delaying the placement of the individual in a nursing facility. JACC aims to strengthen participants’ networks of informal caregivers and to maximize autonomy by providing participants with the opportunity to direct their own care, including hiring their own providers, if desired.
