Independent and Assisted Living
Assisted Living and Transitional Living
Hackensack Meridian Health, as the largest healthcare network in New Jersey, and a not-for-profit organization, is dedicated to serving the needs of our communities and neighbors through every stage of life and care needs.
This commitment to care includes offering a variety of residential care facilities and options to keep loved ones comfortable, engaged, safe, and vibrant through the different stages of aging.
In addition to our long-term care facilities (Hackensack Meridian Health Nursing & Rehab, and also Hartwyck locations) that consistently achieve 5-Star rankings from U.S. News and World Report, we offer a variety of assisted living, and transitional care residences that offer a combination of independent living, with services, support, and amenities to make things easier for our residents.
Hackensack Meridian Health, The Villas, is a new concept in residential care that will change the way you think about the difficult transition for seniors from independent living, to different levels of assisted care and services uniquely focused on health and wellness.
Traditional Assisted Living Facilities
Currently there are two assisted living facilities located in Holmdel and Edison. Both the Willows in Holmdel, and Whispering Knoll in Edison, offer a combination of residential apartments with communal dining and activities that feature the rustic ambience of old-world charm and elegance, combined with modern amenities and care services.
The Willows and Whispering Knoll welcome each resident with a personalized program of assistance designed to support the resident with the services he/she needs to stay healthy, independent, and in charge of life. Because each resident is unique, we carefully evaluate each individual through a registered professional nursing assessment. Our all-inclusive comprehensive services include:
- Assistance with bathing, dressing, toileting, cueing and reminding
- Nursing care and medication administration
- RN on call 24 hours a day
- Receptionist on duty 7 days per week
- Private and semi-private apartments
- Entertainment, games and trips
- Restaurant style dining
- Socialization & activities
- Emergency call system
Memory Care Services
We understand that each individual is different. Those who are confused or anxious due to memory impairment or diseases such as Alzheimer’s require specialized surroundings tailored to their needs. Our assisted living facilities feature private suites set in a secure and safe environment within a small community with structure and proper supervision. Our team member’s work with residents, encouraging them to stay engaged through specialized programs. Exercise, music, reminiscing, sharing stories, scenic rides, and other activities are designed to promote comfort and dignity.
Do you and your family need a break? Respite/short-term stays are available in our assisted living community, for a daily rate. Please inquire for availability.
We invite you to come tour our facilities and meet our team and residents.
