  • Wonderful place

    My mother stayed here and she received excellent care. The nurses were so kind and compassionate. They went out of their way to make her feel very comfortable. Alll their helpers worked very hard .The owners really made our family feel at home. I can't say enough of how special the Little Nursing Home is and how much they helped my mom. I highly recommend this place for elderly care and would like to thank all the employees, [name removed], and the owners for their hard work.

  • A Great Alternative

    The Little Nursing Home in Montclair provides a great alternative to the standard nursing home atmosphere. First, my mother lived with myself and my husband. When her health declined dramatically, we placed her in a regular nursing home for a few weeks. I was very dissatisfied with the hospital like feel and dispassionate care. I searched for a better placement for my mother and through the website, A Place for Mom , I was referred to The Little Nursing Home. It offers exactly what I felt she was missing. The staff are all friendly and responsive and I feel like they know her and she is not merely a number. It is as close to living at home as you can get. It is not the most modern facility but I will overlook that since I am more interested in the personal care and compassion than all the high tech bells and whistles.

  • Toured the facility. Very nice courteous staff. My uncle is well taken care of. I wish they had the capability to take him to his personal doctors. But they can't or won't.
