The Heritage at Clara Barton, Edison NJ

My Mom lives at The Heritage at Clara Barton, Edison , NJ. During these stressful times [names removed] and the entire team have gone above and beyond to keep their residents safe. Their residents are their top priority always. The facility is spotless. I live 5 minutes away, before Covid I was there all the time. I never saw an unsmiling face. The families have constant communication through Zoom calls. We can reach [names removed] 24/7 through text if necessary. The Heritage at Clara Barton is a family.

well priced but needs work

wonderful staff, but spread a bit thin. food is very institutionl, almost no fresh fruits or vegetables, hot dogs are on the menu a bit too often, wraps and sandwiches are usually available but not promoted, much of the food very salty. older heating system in somevof the apts, hard to manage for an elderly person. regular thermostats would be better. I don't see many takers for archery or ping pong, most of the residents use walkers. live entertainment (which was weekly at brighton) is infrequent and there are very few activites on the weekend, there should be more board and card Games with lessons, maybe, dominoes, mexican train, uno..,, a new resident should get more help acclimating, I think the activities director gets one star from me. facility is very clean and friendly, staff always caring and competent
