    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Woodcliff Lake

    Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey was named for the man-made reservoir the town surrounds. The Woodcliff Lake area offers two parks where seniors, who comprise about 17 percent of all residents, can get take a stroll or play tennis among lakeside views. Seniors in need of assistance with daily living can choose from three facilities in town, and another 54 in towns nearby.  

    Assisted living facilities in New Jersey are licensed by the Department of Health and Human Services and are known as facilities that provide 24-hour support to four or more adults in a home-like setting. They emphasize independence and dignity while providing personal and health care services such as medication management and prepared meals.
