The UMHNJ Assisted Living Difference

You have many choices when it comes to assisted living.  Much of your decision about where you or your loved one will reside, comes down to location. But with all other things being equal, the single most important part of your decision will be how the facility looks, smells, and how the staff make you feel when you are there. Your visit is crucial to understanding the intangibles of assisted living that no website can communicate.  We sincerely believe that when you experience the setting and level of commitment and kindness that exists at any of our UMHNJ full service communities, you will not want to trust anyone else with your care or the care of a loved one.
