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.
Lovely facility, take charge contact. Good accommodations and swift attention to care and process needed.
This is a very nice looking community. The people we met were nice. This community did not seem very active. They have a formal dining room and we were looking for something a little more relaxed.
We toured this community and we liked the staff. We found this community to be nice, we did not like that it was so glamorous. The menu and the list of activities were very nice. We would recommend that of their families tour this community for the care of a loved one
This community is a larger community than we were looking for. The people we met were nice and the community seemed clean. This community allows pets.
The Brookdale was very expensive and very commercial like. When you walk in the door, everything is there right away, the residents watching television, exercising, there was too much going on. The place was clean and very nice, but it was not what we were looking for.
[Removed] was great! Very professional and understanding. Unfortunately, I did like the " Memory Care" situation. It was not as well kept or designed as the regular asssisted part of the facility.
[Removed], we were very pleased at what we saw and heard at Brookdale. It's seems to be what my mother-in-law would be happy with.
My aunt is living here at this community. We have found that the staff are very nice. They assist in most of our needs. We like that they keep the community clean. She seems to be happy with the meals and the good variety. We would recommend this community for other families.
I have no complaints about the tour I had received of this community. It had great amenities that where offered and the place was very well maintained. The bedrooms where spacious with lots of natural light throughout the studio. I would recommend this facility to a friend or family in need of a retirement home for there loved one.
Our experience with Brookdale Paramus has been a very good one, overall! It's a very nice looking place, and they do a fantastic job keeping everything clean. The staff is friendly and very pleasant, and they always offer to let me stay for a meal when I visit. They also have a good variety of activities. I also think the price is very reasonable for what they provide.
