My father in law is doing okay here at this community, he is still adjusting, but they are caring for him well. We do feel comfortable with his move to this community, it is a nice place. [Removed] is amazing. She was great to work with, she was very helpful, and understanding. The front desk receptionist isn't very pleasant, but the rest of the staff is very kind, and helpful. His room is well maintained when we visit, but the guest restroom could be better maintained. They have been very accommodating, and this is a community I would recommend.Read more
I have toured many assisted living before deciding to place my family member here. I am so pleased with the decision!

I would recommend you be ready to make a financial commitment to the community. The staff are pretty good to work with, if I have questions or concerns about my loved one. They didn't understand how a specific phone would work due to the way it had to be set up for my loved one to communicate with the family. This was resolved after a bit of time. Some of the activities available include floral arrangements, painting, chef experiences, crocheting group, and more for the residents to choose from.Read more

New York offers a wealth of health care providers for seniors wanting to be proactive about their health or for seniors seeking treatment for chronic conditions. The area has several highly rated hospitals, including:
Jersey City Medical Center, part of the RWJ Barnabas Health system, is just across the Hudson from lower Manhattan and ranks highly for its nursing excellence and leadership in LGBTQ Healthcare Equality. It is also known for its outstanding treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and congestive heart failure.
As a major metropolitan area, New York City has no shortage of options for public transportation. Many residents choose not to own a car, and the city is undoubtedly navigable without one.
Options for getting around town include buses, taxis, subways, and in many neighborhoods, walking can allow you to accomplish most daily errands. You can find subway and bus routes, fare prices and more at the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) website.
New York City is considered one of the world’s great cultural hubs for good reason. Within a short walk or subway ride, you can find countless museums, galleries, and theaters, as well as beautiful outdoor parks, and restaurants to fit every taste and budget.
For recreation, take a stroll through Central Park or the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. For fun with the whole family, consider a trip to the Prospect Park Zoo! Meanwhile, for those who appreciate the arts, no trip to New York City would be complete without a stop at the Metropolitan Museum of Art — one of the world’s great art museums — or perhaps a show at the equally world-renowned Metropolitan Opera.
