Adults and children with disabilities and seniors can remain in their own homes thanks to services and help they receive from Enable, Inc. For more than 27 years, Enable has been a leader in home care in New Jersey with proven experience and a commitment to excellence that extends across all services provided.
“People with disabilities and seniors deserve to live where they choose,” said Sharon Copeland, Enable’s Chief Executive Officer. “Our motto is Safe, Happy, Home. We know we are successful when persons we serve live safely in their own homes; when respite makes it possible for caretakers to get relief and become restored; and when community involvement keeps our constituents happy and engaged.”
From toddlers to teens, parents count on Enable to help their children grow and flourish. Enable is qualified by the NJ Department of Children and Families, and Mercer County, to provide personal care to children and respite to families. Caring staff help with activities of daily living. Enable provides families with a break from the additional responsibilities inherent in caring for their family member with a disability. A grant from Mercer County makes these services available to Mercer families.
According to AARP, nearly 90 percent of seniors want to stay in their own home as they age. People who stay in their own homes live longer. Enable makes aging in place possible through help with personal care and light chores, respite time for a spouse who may be the primary caregiver for a loved one, case management to ensure that seniors receive the services they need, and companionship. State funding helps make many of these services financially affordable.
Enable assists low income residents in becoming economically self-sufficient through U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) grants. This includes assistance with accessing supportive services and conducting empowerment activities. Enable assists more than 250 seniors and people with disabilities living in four Princeton public housing sites and residents in 206 Lakewood housing units.
With help from Enable, children and adults with disabilities and seniors enjoy living with dignity and respect in their own New Jersey communities.
Unfortunately, government funding does not cover all program costs. Enable relies on donations to fund many of its initiatives. To make a year-end gift, go to Enable’s website at www.enablenj.org. To learn more about Enable’s services, call 609-987-5003 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
