Brandywine Living at Mahwah
5.0

Brandywine at Mahwah has been the godsend to our family. For years we worried about our grandmother on the other end of the country, who rejected our pleas to receive in home help or move to assisted living, despite her having a really difficult and limited life in her home. When she agreed a few years ago that it would be good to try an assisted living facility and decided on Brandywine at Mahwah, she was immediately impressed with the engagement programs and delicious menu options. Having already had years of experience with another close relative in an assisted living facility, I was very hands on, during her years at Brandywine. My grandmother had the best, last 4 years of her life at Brandywine, and we are forever grateful. We are discerning costumers, and I highly recommend Brandywine for your loved one’s care.

Any questions I've ever had, they've taken care of and answered right away. I checked out other places, and their cost is very reasonable in comparison. It's like a nice hotel, very clean, very organized. They have a nice, roomy cafeteria. They seem to offer a lot of activities. They're very good to my loved one. I would recommend anybody to go check them out, especially compared to other places that I viewed. They've been very compliant in meeting our needs. The admissions person, the first person you ever interact with in the community, is especially good and very knowledgeable. She helps out everybody. She talked to me quite a bit to get everything organized, and I see how much she helps other families. She's such a good person, probably the best in the entire organization.

Allendale Senior Living Community
5.0

I had a difficult time placing my mother due to her mental and physical illnesses. (mental illness hospitalizations, Hx of strokes,broken leg, and Alzheimers-to name a few) I was turned down by 4 other (more expensive) care facilities. All of whom had assured me they would be able to take my mom. Other places had taken deposits from me and then changed their mind about accepting my mom. This was devastating. Allendale was upfront and efficient with our admission process. Allendale gave me a time frame and there were no hidden fees, or requirements. I am thrilled with the care she is receiving at Allendale. They keep me informed when it is needed . My mother seems happier there than when she was at home with my family. This was a hard decision to make but I have been very happy with my choice of Allendale for a safe place for my mother. Thank you.
