Who is it for?
Life is for Elders
Staying independent and remaining at home is important for our community’s elderly; however, safety and proper care are serious concerns. LIFE at Lourdes understands this and helps seniors to stay healthy while living at home. Seniors in the LIFE program benefit from a wide range of healthcare services provided in our LIFE Center or in the home, 365 days a year.
LIFE is for Caregivers
If you’re like millions of other family caregivers, you want the best care for your aging loved one. But getting that care can be frustrating. You know what it’s like to drive your loved one to different appointments. You know managing medications and coordinating care between doctors can be challenging and time consuming. You struggle with leaving your loved one at home alone during the day.
It doesn’t have to be this way. Thousands of families across America have found a different and better kind of care for their aging loved ones through PACE programs like LIFE at Lourdes. The LIFE program can coordinate all the care and services your loved one needs. A nursing home doesn’t have to be in their future.
LIFE at Lourdes is a service at Lourdes Health System, one of southern New Jersey’s leading healthcare providers.

Who pays for LIFE?
LIFE accepts Medicare, Medicaid or private payment. There are no out-of-pocket charges if participants qualify for both Medicare and Medicaid or Medicaid only. Once signed up, LIFE at Lourdes will handle all paperwork and claims for participants. For services to be covered, participants must follow the care plan approved by the care team. Participants may be fully and personally liable for the costs of unauthorized or out-of-PACE program services. Call our LIFE enrollment specialists at (856) 675-3674 to learn more.
At LIFE at Lourdes, our goal is that the cost will never be a barrier to receiving the care that is needed and the cost will not vary based on the participant’s changing needs.
LIFE at Lourdes does not discriminate in the delivery of services based on race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age, mental or physical disabilities or source of payment.
