There's a reason why the independent living area at Arbor Glen is only 60% occupied. It's an overpriced facility meant to impress the outsider. The independent apartments are nice as is the overall facility and the dining hall generally serves quality meals, but assisted living is a different story. To begin with, the staff seems very disgruntled with management and very few seem to enjoy their work and it shows, probably because they are way understaffed. Push your call button and you often wait 30 minutes or more for help so if you have a true emergency, you're out of luck until a staff person casually makes their way to your room. For the person that falls out of bed or otherwise injures themselves overnight, they'll get treated at the time, but nobody follows up the next day to see if there are any lingering injuries that need to be addressed. The food is supposed to be the same as what's served in the main dining room, but it's not even close. Few choices, often cold and I don't think they ever wash the lettuce. Just recently, a resident found a live bug in her salad. That's just wrong, especially for a place that is supposed to be high-end. The CEO is completely out of touch with the needs of the residents, especially the assisted living residents. His management and communication is pathetic and wastes money like an out of control teenager. In the past two years, the downstairs "bistro" has been completely remodeled twice because the first attempt was a failure. He bought a beautiful luxury bus to transport residents on trips, then later found that it doesn't fit under the main entryway so residents need to walk outside through the parking lot to get to it. Imagine that in the foul winter weather! Overall, the place is just not what it seems on the outside and there are much better run places out there that actually care about the residents, especially the one's who need the extra care.

Description of Friends Retirement Concepts in BRIDGEWATER, NJ

Built In 1997 , Number of Beds : 64

Arbor Glen enriches your life with the very best in assisted living, independent living, memory care, nursing home, skilled nursing facility, continuing care, rehab and senior living services through a caring community. Assisted living offers a warm, supportive, and nuturing atmosphere for individuals who require some help but still want to keep their self-reliance. Why choose assisted living? Studies reveal that living near peers and participating in social activities leads to a more fulfilling life. With assisted living, you'll find senior-friendly living options and a dedicated staff. Communities have additional services that include 24-hour supervision and security, emergency response systems, access to licensed nursing care, chef-prepared meals, and assistance with grooming, dressing, and bathing. Housekeeping, laundry, social programs, and local transportation are usually provided, too. This community, a comprehensive independent living community, allows you to do as you wish, when you wish, but without the burdens of home ownership that can tie you down and take up your time. Serving both individuals and couples, these senior communities are also known as senior apartments, retirement villages, and communities for 55 and older. Residents stay in private apartments or individual homes with a variety of community amenities, services, and programs tailored specifically for seniors. Your personal belongings, such as furniture and favorite mementos, can move to your new home with you. With maintenance, groundskeeping, and housekeeping taken care of, seniors can focus on goals and passions instead of the daily demands of home ownership. Because independent living communities are intended for older adults who need little or no assistance, most do not offer medical care or supervision. Community services and amenities usually include fitness clubs, dining facilities, swimming pools, golf courses, hiking trails, social events, and more. The personal interests of memory care residents at Arbor Glen are always honored and respected. Along with the care and detailed attention they receive from specialists in Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, they are encouraged by dedicated staff to pursue the things they love, and always with a spirit of compassion, trust, and teamwork. Memory care is different from the care provided in assisted living, requiring a dedicated staff that is skilled in techniques unique to memory care. Residents live in private or semi-private residences with twenty-four-hour support. Three healthy meals a day plus snacks are provided, as well as housekeeping and laundry services. Structured activities designed specifically for memory impairment support mental stimulation. Grounds typically have secured areas, such as walking paths and gardens, for residents to enjoy. Behavioral therapies, continence care, medication management, and assistance with bathing and grooming are provided as well. Continuing care retirement communities (CCRC) are dedicated to making the phases of the aging process as smooth, comfortable, and enjoyable as possible. It achieves this through offering long-term, comprehensive assistance, from independent living to assisted living to skilled nursing care. If your loved one suffers from serious illnesses or chronic health issues, the nursing care option at Arbor Glen is recognized for delivering the kind of knowledgeable, intensive assistance its residents need. Even if their active days are behind them, they deserve the dignity of compassionate mental, emotional, and physical care, and the skilled nursing community within Arbor Glen has the staffing and experience to ensure your loved one receives precisely such services. A skilled staff and licensed nurses provide 24/7 health care when needed as well as assistance with the activities of daily living, including grooming, dressing, and help with using the bathroom. Most residents share a room, with healthy meals provided in a central dining room. An activity director designs an activity and events plan to cultivate mental, physical, and social health. Arbor Glen provides a low-maintenance lifestyle and the assistance seniors need to enjoy retirement. With comprehensive assisted living, independent living, memory care, nursing home, skilled nursing facility, continuing care, rehab and senior living services, and with a caring environment, seniors can feel relaxed and secure. An assisted living community provides help when necessary with the goal of supplying the services required to stay as autonomous as possible. With independent living, you can do as you wish, when you wish, but without the burdens of home ownership that can take up your time. Memory care gives a higher level of attention, intellectual stimulation, along with comfortable, secure accommodations. Continuing retirement care is dedicated to making the phases of the aging process as smooth, comfortable, and enjoyable as possible. It achieves this through offering long-term, comprehensive assistance, from independent living to assisted living to skilled nursing care. Nursing home care gives the highest level of attention in the senior space. Call for more information on how you can become part of the Arbor Glen community.
