If she has Medicaid, see if Medicaid will help cover it. If not, you may have to just put her in a memory care facility, Medicaid will definitely cover that (if she's Medicaid eligible).

Aging & Disability Resource Connection/Area Agency on Aging (ADRC/AAA)

An Area Agency on Aging (AAA) is designated in each of New Jersey's 21 counties to serve as the primary entity responsible for developing comprehensive, coordinated systems of community-based services for older adults.

The New Jersey Department of Human Services (DHS) is the largest state agency in New Jersey. It serves about 1.5 million New Jerseyans, or about one of every six state residents.

DHS serves seniors, individuals and families with low incomes; people with mental illnesses, addictions, developmental disabilities, or late-onset disabilities; people who are blind, visually impaired, deaf, hard of hearing, or deaf-blind; parents needing child care services, child support and/or healthcare for their children; and families facing catastrophic medical expenses for their children.

DHS and its eight divisions provide programs and services designed to give eligible individuals and families the help they need to find permanent solutions to a myriad of life challenges.

This is made possible through the Department?s work to maximize state and federal resources, establish community supports and promote accountability among staff. DHS also provides some assistance for the families served by the Department of Children and Families (DCF).

AAAs also serve as Aging & Disability Resource Connection (ADRC) lead agencies in their county, ensuring seniors, adults with disabilities and their caregivers have easy access to information and long term services and supports.

The role of the AAAs includes:

Coordinating all programs on aging regardless of funding source, and serving as the central source for information and referral for services and programs;

Preparing an Area Plan on Aging which includes an analysis of the needs and existing services within the county and a comprehensive plan for the delivery of services to older people;

Administering the annual allocation of federal Older Americans Act and state funds from the New Jersey Division of Aging and Community Services for projects and services within the county;

Medicaid will pay for day care in an approved center. Were either of you a veteran? There is a program called "Aid and Attendance" through the Veteran's Administration that you may qualify for.

You don't say how old she is. Have you looked into hospice care? My mother has dementia, is 97, and has limited mobility. But she is not terminal. However, because of her age and infirmity, she qualified for hospice care. This is paid for through Medicare and includes all prescription medications and medical equipment. The Area Agency on Aging can give you a list of companies providing hospice care. Interview them before you choose a care provider to make sure that they are compatible with your religious beliefs, as some of these companies have strong stand on religion. My mother has been receiving hospice care for two months, and I've been very satisfied with the care she has received.
