The concept of assisted living is still a new one, and while we try to create this lifestyle at the Jewish Home Assisted Living, we do so by fulfilling the following 5 principles for each resident every day. The five principles are: Independence, Choice, Privacy, Individuality and Dignity. These principles are the foundation used by our staff to provide some form of assistance to our residents who require support services, but at the same time allowing those residents to remain in an apartment style lifestyle with their own personal possessions. Assisted living offers elegant dining which promotes socialization and choice. Our programming selection affords independence and individuality, while our Wellness team provides care and promotes privacy, independence and dignity. It is both humbling and heart warming to join our residents during our weekly Shabbos dinner as they unite (both Jews and non-Jews) welcoming in the Sabbath. As one resident recently mentioned after being here only a half a day in our community, I have never seen such a beautiful place and met such friendly people. I can stay here forever, is a true testament to the family atmosphere one will experience when walking through our activity-filled community. The Kaplen Family Senior Residence joins the The Jewish Home Family in helping to deliver a continuum of care of our seniors. This is a tradition of over 90 years of caring for our elderly with services ranging from kosher meals-on-wheels, Adult Medical Day Care, sub-acute and rehabilitative services, long term nursing care and now Assisted Living. The Jewish Home Assisted Living is the first kosher community in Bergen County, located in suburban River Vale and only minutes away from the center of Westwood. Our luxurious two story community sits on 5 acres with beautifully landscaped areas. We offer a choice between studio, one and two bedroom apartments in our General Assisted Living and 24 apartments are available in Memory Lane, a secured unit for those with Alzheimers or Dementia. Our community reflects traditional Judaic values with kosher meals (elegant dining) and Shabbat and holiday services are offered. Jewish Home Assisted Living is a non-sectarian community to all seniors regardless of race, religion or national origin. Our residents enjoy a range of amenities utilizing a gym, library, Internet Caf, theatre, and outdoor patio. JHAL has a Wellness Center onsite which is staffed with professional nurses and caregiver 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to make sure you or your loved ones needs are met at all times. All areas of our community are handicapped accessible. We offer transportation for doctor appointments, local shopping and other events in the community 7 days a week.
