Our program of Elder Education and Awareness as the elderly are the most uninformed segment of society. I provide on site group presentations as well as in-home Intakes/Assessments, personally coordinate care, and comfort; establishment of caregiver and sharing support groups especially assisting female caregivers of all cultures who are working moms and who make up 85% of caregivers; provide connections for vital resources such as food, home repair and transportation assistance.
Our Ongoing Mission & Purpose
An Education Focused Initiative
Aging Support Solutions is focused on healthy aging and full living. With both local community and statewide resources, advancing the dignity and quality of life through advocacy, respect, and genuine solutions remains our greatest goal. Our organization is there to aid not only the aging community, but to guide and educate those who come in contact with the aging community of New Jersey, including, but not limited to, social programs, the medical community, and perhaps most importantly, the family members who are helping to support aging family members.
We endeavor to
- Promote services that enable older adults to maintain their independence
- Provide leadership in the regulartory environment and advocate for the needs of the elder population in both legislation and public policy.
- Guide and support the caretakers of the elder population, including adult relatives and spouses.
- Educate the greater community to illuminate the needs of the elder population and to identify ways to compassionately and appropriately care for our elder neighbors.
- Provide guidance on proper planning for healthy aging and productive living to the aging population and their families.
- Identify and connect the aging population with existing community and public resources.

Elder Care Planning
Our elderly family members deserve the best possible care. A proper care plan ensures that our elderly loved ones, their health providers, and family are all moving in the same direction. Expert, experienced guidance makes a world of difference when making important planning decisions.
Elder Advocacy covers a broad range of services, such as assisting seniors to apply for government benefits, such as Medicaid and Social Security disability, assisting seniors with banking or legal matters, reviewing medical bills and insurance claims, or providing support after a hospital stay.
Alzheimer's & Dementia Care Planning
Routines are essential for those suffering dementia and Alzheimer's. A care plan can unify the efforts of the family and medical community to provide the best, and most comfortable course of care and established routine possible.

Comments from our clients
Ted D. “As an elder homeless veteran, Mr. Caleca acted swiftly in coordinating with the V.A. “Soldier On” program from which their case worker and Mr. Caleca obtained a one room apartment. He helps me weekly with my problems.”
Gloria J. “I came to Tom with a problem in reference to a major glitch that got out of control with my credit card company. He wrote a letter to the CEO and later chatted with an executive secretary. He arranged for a settlement saving me thousands and he has done this for other seniors I know. I like his informative presentations. We learn so much and he has a good sense of humor. Tom completes for us so many applications for county, state and federal programs.”
CeCe L. “Tom is a source for senior assistance and is involved with many seniors in the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program.”
Mary O. “When my husband passed I was at a standstill in what I was supposed to do and Tom provided a course of action - Thank you!”
Gary U. “Tom is an extraordinary problem solver. He listens, questions and advises. He has helped me from homelessness to acquisition of social security as well as medical issues involvement.”
