Recent reviews of Independent Living in Passaic, NJ
The Senior Residence at St. Peter the Apostle in River Edge, NJ

We went with The Senior Residence at Se. Peter Apostle because they offered a comparable level of service for almost $2000 less a month. The facility is smaller with only 20 rooms, it is a former convent so you have to be ok with a small room versus some other places that had large rooms. They have communal bathrooms and showers but there are 4 per hall so she has never had to wait. In terms of services, the other places we saw were not offering much more than this one and were more expensive. Here they offer 3 meals a day and access to coffee and tea throughout the day in a common room. It offers towel and bedsheet cleaning. But they do not have as many activities provided which is ok. The atmosphere is homey and she is comfortable here. I would absolutely recommend that others check it out. Staff are amazing and it doesn't matter who it is, they are super helpful to the residents. You can reach the director at anytime, she even gave me her phone number if we needed anything.

Arbor Terrace Teaneck

We picked this community, because of the location, friendly staff and residents, and beautiful facilities. I would recommend it highly. They have everything you could want--book clubs, Happy Hour, exercises, Movies, Trips, and etc.

Bright Side Manor in Teaneck, NJ

This place is a godsend; a non-profit community, and it is definitely more like a home away from home than these assisted living places that like to pretend they are resorts, and that people are living there because they want to. Let's be real -- folks are in assisted living because they have to be. So where is the best place to be when you'd rather be somewhere else? We have experience with other places with a great deal of snob appeal, and we have found the staffs, with less than a handful of exceptions, who unfortunately don't make a difference, indifferent at best and abusive and neglectful at worst, and ownership destined for the lowest circle of hell. Nothing could be farther than the truth when it comes to the Bright Side experience. Their staff really does care, only God knows where they get the patience, but they have it and they use it, from the RNs to the aids to the administrative staff and beyond. And believe it or not, the food is incredible! The place is clean, you smell lunch cooking when you walk in, there's a lovely garden in the back, true, they can't accommodate wheelchair users, but I don't see taking away stars for that -- it's a converted Victorian, you play the cards you're dealt. You don't have to be rich to get in, you pay on a sliding scale, but do expect to do some fundraising in some capacity, because it really is the least you can do for them; they won't ask you -- I'm just saying. Bright Side is the model for what assisted living needs to be as Boomers age, and we can support it while providing superior care to our loved ones, because right now, the for-profit places are just corporate abattoirs who regard their residents as cash cows that come in and out on an assembly line.
