I visited this facility

My parents moved to Juniper Village when it became difficult for my dad to take care of my mom-my mom had dementia. The staff was WONDERFUL! They were able to identify my parents' needs and tailored their care to meet those needs. Staff was always available for any questions or concerns I had. But, most importantly,they treated my parents, myself, and my siblings with dignity and respect. I am a Geriatric Care Manager and I recommend Juniper Village all of the time.

If you are looking for the highest quality care for your senior family member, Juniper Village at Forest Hills is the place to go - warm, welcoming, clean and compassionate. My family is so thrilled with the care my father is getting at Juniper, that my cousins just moved my aunt there, too. Now we all have peace of mind!

The reason why I would choose Juniper Village was because my sister was into early dementia and I was looking for a memory care place. It was a very nice place, and I knew the care was very good. I had an acquaintance who was there, and she's very happy there. I thought my sister would be happy there if we had to go there. I knew they had activities and a crafts room. I talked to the director, and they said that they would take her, if need be, immediately. The environment was lovely. I just thought the care was very good there, and I didn't have that feeling that I was in a bad nursing home or anything because it was a lovely place and it was in a nice environment.

My mom is at Juniper Village. The place is very nice. It is very clean. They do have a lot of variety of activities. She just moved in a week ago. Their rooms/apartments are very nice. My mother is in a grand suite. It is very nice. It is spacious. She has a lot of windows. It is very bright and cheery. The food is all made in-house. It is not brought in. It is very good. You can have a variety of things. They do have a main course everyday, but you can order a sandwich or something like that everyday. Regarding security and safety, they do lock the doors every night at 8:00, and there is somebody at the reception desk. They're pretty good about getting people to sign in and out. Someone was asking about a resident, and they wouldn't give them any information. They do adhere to privacy and things like that.

Provider Response

My mother-in-law and father-in-law ended up going to Juniper Village because it was nearer to where we moved. The staff was attentive, professional, and really caring as well. They had a private room with their own bathroom. They had different sizes of rooms, so from a very small into a larger room. They had a dining room where they had menus that they could choose their meals from. There was an alternative menu in case they didn’t like the things that were on the regular menu that was on everyday. They had enriching activities as far as bingo and singing groups. They would have people come in and give talks. They had church services. They had a beauty parlor and podiatrists that would come in. It was a really nice place.

Unexpectedly we found ourselves trying to find an assisted living facility for our 87 year old mother who had fallen at home and could no longer live in her home. Juniper Village was the second place we considered and it stopped there. We love the setting of the location, easy access while in a beautiful wooded area, small and personable. The care is excellent, aids are friendly, helpful, respectful and courteous. When you walk into Juniper Village there is always something interesting or fun going on. The facility always seems fresh, clean and tidy and the staff personable and engaging. I would not hesitate to recommend Juniper Village at Forest Hills.

My aunt lived here for the last 3 years of her life. She entered into assisted living, then moved to the dementia care wing after 2 years. The staff at Juniper were wonderful -- very caring and attentive. The facility was nice, and had a more intimate, hands-on feel than most of the other places we looked at.

I'd really rate them a five plus. One of the things I really like about Juniper Village was the activities that they had. There were many activities and there's a very warm feeling. I had thought that my mom would come to Pittsburgh and possibly to Juniper Village and then she said she couldn't leave her home. I was so disappointed. But they were very, very supportive of me. I had no problem with getting my deposit back. They were at their word. They didn't hassle me. I bumped into one of the women at the fair one day and she was very, very cordial. She asked if my mom has changed her mind yet and I told her not yet, but I told her to keep her file.

Juniper Village at Forest Hills was a beautiful and clean place. The staff were friendly and they served ice cream. They had nice shared rooms. However, it was located along the highway and the traffic was bad in the area.
