I am a friend or relative of resident

Juniper Village was my first choice for my mom for assisted living after a long search of many options in Morris and Essex county. The facility is like home - top notch offering a beautiful, clean and updated living environment with an ongoing variety of high quality services and activities for the residents. The staff cares about each individual and provides both the expert nursing and aide interaction that is personal and caring. I feel fortunate that my mom feels so at home in Juniper Village.

Provider Response

My mother is doing fine in Juniper Village. It is very good. Some of the staff members are better than others, but if somebody doesn’t do what they’re supposed to do, they get reprimanded. Most of the staff members are nice. They offer activities every day, like visiting singers, bingo, horseshoes, art activities, little parties, and entertainment. Some days, the food is good, and other days, she doesn’t like it. Her room is beautiful. They have a dining area which is beautifully furnished and looks like "The Love Boat.” The people there are very caring and on top of everything. If my mother has a problem, they’re right there. They have a nursing staff there, so if she has any issues, they’ll call me right away.

Provider Response

Thank you Sharon for sharing this five-star review and recommending Juniper Village at Chatham to others. It sounds like you and your mother are please with what we have to offer. If anything is not meeting your expectations, please be sure to reach out to Executive Director Joann Malanga. She maintains an open door to hear from our families. On the days that your mother does not like the food, please let her know to ask the server for another selection. We always maintain the grill menu for those days when the main entree choices do not meet your desires. Thanks again for your recommendation!

My mom will move into Juniper Village at Chatham. I think it is beautifully done, and the care in the community seems exceptional. The facility itself is designed to be as homelike as possible. It is not too large which is better. There are only about a hundred people in the facility, and I find it to be a warm and caring environment. It is beautifully decorated. It has wonderful public places and has lots of areas like reading room that are nicely decorated for people to sit and relax.

They have something that my mother is interested in. They have a form of yoga and book clubs, and these are the things that she is interested in. They have some people who come in and give lectures, and she is interested in that as well. We have very good feedback that the food is excellent, and indeed my mother says that the food is wonderful.

Provider Response

I visited this facility

Juniper Village was a nice looking place. I liked it, but if I go there every day or a couple of days a week, it could be difficult for me to get there because there is going to be a lot of traffic between where I am and their location. Everything was fine. It was clean, and they presented the place well. They seemed good. I talked to the nurses, and they all seemed to be caring.

I have been a resident of Juniper Villlage Chatham for four years and I love my life here. Our residence is attractively decorated, surrounded by landscaped lawn and gardens which we enjoy in good weather. I give our management, staff and workers credit for Juniper Village's excellence. We have an outstanding activities program from which to choose: daily exercises, discussion groups, music programs, a book club, movies in our theatre, a knitting group, indoor sports such as bocce, word games, bingo, bridge. We go in our van to local programs such as plays, movies, music and to the Jersey shore in summer. We have a talented chef and our healthful meals change seasonally and include fresh fruit and vegetables daily. Our driver takes us to medical and dental appointments in the area, for local shopping and to Sunday religious services. What's not to love about living at Juniper Village!

My mother has been a resident at Juniper Village for the past six years and thoroughly enjoys living there. The facility, staff, and residents are wonderful. Everyone is warm and caring, and conduct themselves in a professional manner. My mother is very comfortable there. I liken it to living on a cruise ship… an awesome chef serving three wonderful meals in the dining room each day, games and activities, visiting entertainers, library, computers, movies, in-house medical facility, in-house religious services, room cleaning and laundry services, and transportation to appointments, local shopping and outings. I recommend Juniper Village at Chatham very highly.

Provider Response

Gregg, thank you for this wonderful five-star review. Your comments are very helpful to others who are looking for assisted living for their loved ones. We are very proud of our community, staff, and signature programs. Thank you for specifically pointing out our dining program - H'Art and Soul of Dining, our activities program - Connections, housekeeping, transportation and exceptional staff. We are honored to provide care for your mother and love the idea of a cruise ship atmosphere. It is our aim to provide an exception life at our communities and it sounds like we are succeeding. Thank you again!

I am/was a resident of this facility

I spent a month and a half at Juniper Village at Chatham during a respite stay recovering from a broken hip during late June, July and early August 2013. Most of the residents are a little younger than my parent's so my stay there was a lot like a very long cruise with parents. The residents are really interesting people and have lead quite diverse lives. It's a excellent facility with lots of activities to engage the residents. Some of the residents have cars and there are field trips with the Juniper bus for movies, shopping, church or visits to other local sites of interest. The staff is great and the food is excellent and there is an Ala Carte menu if you want something other than one of the two offerings at each meal. It's served by a wait staff in the dinning room and there are nice touches like cereal in the morning can be topped by bananas or berries depending on what is available.

Now a days I'm a volunteer one day a week doing technical support to help residents with iPads, PCs, smart phones etc. Most of the staff I knew from my stay is still there.

I am tremendously impressed with Juniper Village and I strongly recommend it to anyone who is considering assisted living or a respite stay.

Provider Response

Bill, it's so nice to hear that your stay was so pleasant that you decided to become a volunteer! We are thrilled that you had such a positive stay after your hip surgery and are sharing that experience here. We are very proud of our community, our staff, our Connections activity program, our H'Art and Soul of Dining program and our volunteer program. Our signature programs are truly what sets us apart and makes Juniper Village at Chatham a wonderful place to live and work. We thank you for your comments and your referrals to others who may need assisted living or even a short respite stay, as in your case.

I toured this place for my grandfather. It was beautiful and I wish we could have afforded it. Very clean and upscale. We pick another place and are still very happy.
