Finding the right Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) or independent living community for your elderly loved one or yourself can seem overwhelming. Understandably the process involves extensive research and knowing the right questions to ask. Many people looking for senior living options just aren’t exactly sure where to start – which is why we’ve developed this list of considerations to help you in your search.
- Location – When searching for a Continuing Care Retirement Community it is important to take stock of your current lifestyle and determine a suitable environment for your retirement years. For example, if a small town atmosphere surrounded by nature sounds appealing, you should definitely give Bristol Glen a visit. We are located in the rustic countryside of Sussex County, NJ that sits peacefully on 74 beautiful acres of woodlands and meadows surrounded by mountains, lakes and state parks.
- Philosophy – One of the biggest concerns for people moving into a Continuing Care Retirement Community is how their freedom and lifestyle will be affected. United Methodist Homes of New Jersey takes a resident centered approach to senior living. We match professional services with the needs of the individuals rather than a “one size fits all” approach. At Bristol Glen CCRC, and all of our communities, we emphasize social engagement and independence. Dignity and privacy are maximized for all residents.
- Customized Care – Often, communities utilize a one-size-fits-all approach to care regarding their residents. At United Methodist Homes of New Jersey, we embrace individual needs and requirements. We also recognize that residents’ needs may change over time. Independent living at Bristol Glen gives residents access to a wide range of care options to be used on an as need basis.
- Experience – Senior care is an area where experience counts both in terms of the care residents receive and in terms of you and your loved one’s peace of mind. For over 100 years United Methodist Homes of New Jersey has been providing high quality care to seniors. Our associates and staff are well trained and committed to the values of compassion, respect, stewardship and service. If that isn’t enough, Bristol Glen is also a recipient of the highly esteemed U.S. News and World Report’s Best Nursing Homes award for the past two consecutive years.
