Recent reviews of Independent Living in Carteret, NJ
The Chelsea at Montville
4.6

The staff is very nice and very welcoming. They answered all of my questions. They're very caring. My loved one has fallen a few times and they've immediately called me to let me know what's going on. It seems like a very well run operation. The room is not huge but nice. There's a bathroom with a big bedroom / living room area. I kind of expected it to be a furnished room, but it's not. And that' seems to be the standard across the industry. Everything I've seen has been pretty clean - nothing dirty, nothing laying around that shouldn't be laying around. My loved one tells me the food is very good. They've just now all been vaccinated, so they're starting to get activities going again.
