Juniper Village is definitely a place where they care about not only the residents, but the family members too. When I initially spoke to the woman at the facility, I talked about getting POA from my mother. Originally my mom was very resistant to that idea. They were able to give us the names of a couple lawyers, which was great because I would've never thought of that route. She let us know that we didn't have to use them, but could contact them for direction. That was tremendous for myself, because I wasn't sure how to go about dealing with the process of POA. The lawyer we chose was a huge help for us. Other facilities didn't offer that. I was able to sit down and have a meal with my mom and it was vey good. I spoke to other places and they were nice, but Juniper went the extra step. When we went on our tour, the tour guide during that time went the extra mile - gave us her personal number and allowed us to contact her after hours with questions. That was such a huge weight off our shoulders with having a parent who's transitioning from leaving home and moving into a senior living community. They went out of their way, in ways that other places didn't seem to be doing.... Read more

This was a good community, it was too large of a layout for my loved one.
This community was very similar to another community that I was looking at. I had a connection with an executive director at another community and this just made me go a different direction. They have some good amenities for the residents just was another community that shined more.
My loved one was here and we did not have a very good experience. The food was horrible, the rooms were very tiny, and it was very expensive for what you got.
Our family had an in person tour and the staff members were nice and friendly, but the residents did not really interact with each other, they just did not seem very happy. Also we did not like how our loved one would have to use the elevator to get to the dining room and activity room.
The staff members at Juniper Village are all so wonderful friendly and cooperative. They are one of the sole reason we chose this community for our loved one. Sometimes the meals are a hit or miss but overall when we speak to our loved one they are pretty good.
My mother went reluctantly. She now looks forward to being with her new friends, eats well and the facility is very clean. Everyone is eager to help. Overall it has been a very good experience. There is a new person doing activities and it really makes all the difference. Avoiding boredom is paramount to good mental health. My mother feels at home and her family has peace of mind. .
Our family had an in person tour and we loved Juniper Village that was my first choice, great first impression right off the bat
The staff members have all been very friendly and we like that the community is close to our family so we are able to visit a lot.
Our family had an in person tour and Juniper Village was very elegant and very nice, however due to our loved ones state of health we weren't looking for elegant and nice. We needed a community that was going to be capable of handling her health and we ended up finding another facility. But Juniper Village was still a great tour experience.
During my staff at Juniper Village they were pretty understaffed which resulted in the services I needed help with to take much longer, i would lay in bed longer than what i was comfortable with just because in the mornings they would only have one aid. Also the meals I would eat for lunch and dinner were not consistent at all, what was advertised on the menu and what we received was totally different. The food was lousy, there was only one or two meals I had while I was there that i liked, other that thought i found it annoying and disappointing. Also the portion sizes were not adequate for adults.
Mom was at the point where she couldn't live by herself or manage her own affairs anymore. I selected Juniper Village Paramus for their assisted living, and I've been very happy with that choice. She immediately began receiving regular medical and psychological care, and they brought her depression and anxiety under control within a matter of weeks. The facility is bright and clean, and the management and staff are wonderful and responsive. There are plenty of activities to keep the residents occupied for most of the day, along with an on-site beauty salon. Mom is the happiest I've seen her in many years, thanks to Juniper.
Everyone I've met there has been cordial and friendly, and always smiling. I'm very happy with the place. The staff have been very helpful. They call you back on time. My loved one is fine, healthy, and looks great. It's clean there. The clothes get mixed up sometimes. But at least they're clean. And everyone seems to be happy. They do have activities going on - kickball, puzzles, magazines. They do a good job keeping her mind busy. The TV is on all the time, or they have music playing. I've heard 40s and 50s music. I was there the other day and they had Dick Van Dyke on.
The care services were better than average, but I don't have anything to compare it to. It is a personal opinion. I would say that you need to be an active participant in your loved one's care. You need to be there. My mother was there only for a month and during that time I went over every day. I saw residents that would fall asleep in their wheelchairs. This isn't the fault of the community; however, I believe that the blame is on the family. I would tell this to the family, that the loved one is being taken care of, but I would make sure that you are providing additional TLC to make them feel comfortable in their new environment. There are activities included: movies, slid shows, bingo, and the basic activities. There were a lot of people that participated, but my loved one isn't one that was joiner. The food was ok, instuational food. My loved complained about the food, but it is similar to instuational. They were accommodating when the resident didn't liked the food that was served, they would make a grilled cheese or another item for the resident.
Also a very nice facility. Was impressed with the rooms and decor, and staff were very friendly and welcoming. Didn't see a whole lot going on with the residents and staff, but that could have been affected by the timing of my visit. The only drawback I saw concerned pricing which I thought was somewhat high. Still, this facility is located in Bergan County, so that may explain things a bit. That was the only factor that prevented me from giving Brookdale a 5-star rating.
Brookdale has been a Godsend. The staff is exceptional. There are plenty of activities for mom. The other residents are warm and welcoming. You get a real sense of community from this group of seniors. They really look out for each other.
Brookdale is a very lively place. The seniors were very engaged. They totally sell the place. All of our questions were answered. It will probably be a very good fit for mom.
I was familiar with this facility since I had a relative who was there when it was Emeritus. After speaking with the advisor we established that the funds I would have available would not be sufficient to maintain at least 2 years of residency. She was very truthful and I appreciated her honesty.
My mother is in the memory care unit at Brookdale Paramus. All of the staff, including the facility director, knows my mother's name and family members. No assisted living place is perfect, but the staff here understands my mother's needs and make her as comfortable as possible. The food is quite good and they have several family activities throughout the year. The current activity director in the memory care unit is doing a great job.
Very nice facility. Staff were wonderful and knowledgable.
