CareOne at the Cupola in Paramus, NJ
4.9

When we first came to visit we knew this was the place for our loved one we thought it was just perfect - the community is very clean and we thought the administrative team was very helpful. The value for the money is a 5 plus, it is definitely there. They do have a lot of different things for our loved one and the other residents to do during the day and based on the experience we have had so far we would absolutely recommend CareOne at the Cupola to other families.

My father in law is doing okay here at this community, he is still adjusting, but they are caring for him well. We do feel comfortable with his move to this community, it is a nice place. [Removed] is amazing. She was great to work with, she was very helpful, and understanding. The front desk receptionist isn't very pleasant, but the rest of the staff is very kind, and helpful. His room is well maintained when we visit, but the guest restroom could be better maintained. They have been very accommodating, and this is a community I would recommend.

I have toured many assisted living before deciding to place my family member here. I am so pleased with the decision! You can tell the management truly cares about us and it stems off into all the other workers. [Name removed] went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and I would recommend this place to anyone looking!
