Brandywine Living At Livingston
5.0

Our mother moved from another assisted living facility where the service was on the decline. Brandywine was a great breath of fresh air. The entire facility is top notch. The staff is well managed and well trained. They are all truly caring at heart and it shows in the respect and love they show to all of their charges.

Canterbury Village in West Orange, NJ
5.0

Canterbury Village not only saved my mother, but me as well. After a terrible, dehumanizing experience at an unsafe, unsound non-profit facility in Somerset, my mother’s life turned around at Canterbury. The Canterbury staff is kind and compassionate, the directors and nurses are attentive to the residents’ needs and medications (with wise suggestions too) and I have watched my mother thrive there. It’s a clean, cozy, and cheery place - not institutional or bleak. Residents with dementia are given freedom and respect; there is never a sense of this being a locked facility, but a sprawling apartment complex or shared home with gardens and good meals (and a therapy dog too!) Staff turnover seems very low, so the residents and families really bond with everyone there. I just can’t overemphasize how wonderful Canterbury has been for my mom - it is a wonderful place. I am so grateful to everyone there
