Where The Heart Is

My mother is a resident and client of Heritage at Clara Barton. [name removed] and her phenomenal team provide incredible care to their clients on a daily basis. Their work during the COVID-19 Pandemic to ensure the safety, health and happiness of their residents has been nothing short of exemplary. Their record speaks for itself. [name removed] and her team are tireless in their pursuit of excellence. Always going the extra mile to help. [name removed] and her team are great listeners. Their empathy and thoughtfulness are constantly on display. Never looking for acknowledgement, they go about their business of joyfully caring for all their residents. They not only make their clients feel like family, but give peace of mind to their loved ones. Knowing my mother is in good hands around the clock has given me great personal comfort. I trust [name removed] and her team with my mother's well being. I can't think of a better way to express my gratitude and thanks. I would recommend Heritage at Clara Barton to anyone who is seeking a place for a loved one to live and be cared for.

Happy Here!

My mom has happily resided here for two and a half years. But since COVID we have come to appreciate the caring staff here even more. They have kept my mom and all the residents safe yet active and engaged. They have been compassionate, positive and upbeat. Since March [name removed] has conducted zoom calls for family members, at first on a daily basis and for the last couple of months, twice weekly. She has been straightforward and transparent about their conditions, challenges and solutions throughout these several months. I have felt well informed and have had peace of mind. The staff remains vigilant in following COVID protocols which reflects in their success in keeping residents safe. In addition, Clara Barton is well kept and maintained inside and out. My mom’s apartment is fitted with every accommodation to make her life as independent as possible, and as safe as possible. It is a great place to live!

Mom is Happy & Safe

I could not be happier with Heritage. My mom is fairly independent, but needed some help. At Clara Barton, she has found a home. The apartment is large enough for mom to have room to move around and still feel like it's not too much to take care of. She has help cleaning the apartment, managing her meds and handling her mail. She likes the meals, but having a kitchen gives her an option to make her own when she wants. Since Physical & Occupational Therapy are available in-house, mom's doesn't need to go far. Her cognition and fitness have improved tremendously. The staff at Clara Barton has been wonderful. The nurses keep a watchful eye and contact me with any issues. The aides help with laundry, cleaning, check-ins and any other requests that I have. The Recreation department is creative and caring and do their best to keep the residents engaged. Executive Director [name removed] and Admissions Director [name removed] keep the families informed and connected and updated on all the goings on. Mom is happy and grateful to be in an environment where she feels safe and is close by.

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.

Excellent Facility

During the pandemic, Clara Barton updates me with the zoom information, twice/week, since I work from home and can't participate. Always very friendly even with all the stress Covid had brought to us all. They are always very accommodating with any questions or assistance I need. My Mom has lived there for over 4 years and has recently been put into hospice. They are all very kind. I am very grateful my Mom chose Clara Barton. You will not be disappointed!

My mom is 94 and has been in independent living for 4 years. It is the best place for her, she is keeping active with all that is going on. She loves everyone there! The place is very clean. With the virus ,we all feel they are doing a great job keeping her safe.

Demonstrated excellence at Clara Barton

From the beginning of the pandemic, the Heritage at Clara Barton has gone above and beyond to ensure the safety and well being of my mother (and every resident) as well as to keep the families up to date, with not only transparency, but open lines of communication. As a healthcare worker myself, I appreciate the great strides they have been taken to protect those who are most vulnerable. Time and again, it has been “all hands on deck” doing whatever is necessary to assist the residents. The low positive COVID-19 numbers are a testimony to the immediate and continued implementation of mandated protocols! It has been 5 years since our mother has been residing at the facility and I have always been thankful for such a wonderful place for her to call home but even more so during this challenging time!

Kudos to heritage at Clara barton Edison, NJ

To Whom It May Concern: I want to send the strongest possible shout of approval and sincere thanks for the way that the amazing and caring staff at Heritage at Clara Barton (HCB) in Edison, NJ is caring for and protecting my father, [name removed], and all the other residents in this mixed Assisted Living / Independent Living facility. The manager, [name removed], and the head of nursing, [name removed], and their respective staffs have, throughout the pandemic gone to incredible ends to ensure the physical and mental health of the residents in their care. They have repeatedly extended themselves and gone beyond their job descriptions to serve our family members. They are ever aware and forward looking in terms of identifying and mitigating any risk that may impact the residents' well being. Operating within constraints and boundaries imposed by the state and their company, they nonetheless continuously push to provide every service and, especially, protection that they can. It is inconceivable to me that they could possibly try harder or do and accomplish more than they have been able and continue to do. My dad is completely thankful for the way the staff at Clara Barton has cared for him and the other residents throughout this crisis. The staff at HCB had built and maintained a positive, warm, healthy, and welcoming environment prior to the pandemic and have done truly wonderful things and gone to tremendous lengths to ensure the residents are protected and cared for since. I cannot say enough about how truly professional, caring, and heroic all the staff have been. My siblings and I can not be happier about how safe and well cared for my dad has been at HCB. Thank you.

Thankful for The Heritage at Clara Barton

My Mom has lived at The Heritage at Clara Barton for 3 years. Have always been very satisfied with the entire staff, awesome people, treat the residents with respect and the building is spotless. Lots of activities. During these trying times since COVID, there are no words to explain how they have impressed me. [names removed] to name a few . The entire staff came together to do all they could to keep the residents safe and also take care of their emotional needs during this hard time. They make an awesome team at The Heritage. I’m thankful for them everyday .

Covid 19

Sadly I’ve grown very disappointed in Clara Barton Heritage Home. I realize Covid 19 has changed a lot of the policies and procedures but the management has done nothing to ease family fears and anxieties of when our loved ones will be able to leave the building without having to self quarantine on their return. I know for a fact that staff members take residents to doctor appointments in their personal cars when the facility bus is not available. If that can happen then why can’t a family member take their loved one to the doctors? Also, some residents can take their pets out for walks and other residents go to stores on Amboy Ave. without quarantining on their return. The facade of preventing residence from leaving and having to quarantine for 14 days upon their return has to end. Mentally this is doing way more damage then is necessary to the elderly residents.

Clara Barton Heritage Home Reviw

My Parents moved in to the Clara Barton Heritage Home almost two years ago in the independent living section. Overall the decision to move there was a great move. They have a nice apartment that serves their needs and the staff is friendly and helpful. Sadly my dad passed away recently and the coronavirus has cut off my access to visiting my mother when she needs me the most. My Mom and I are both comforted in knowing that the managers and staff are doing this to keep everyone safe from this horrible virus. I am able to drop off supplies for my mother as needed, I can see her in the lobby and know that she is doing well and they also provide assistance with FaceTime chats as needed.
