Nowhere is loving and compassionate care more important than when we meet the needs of those who are no longer able to care for themselves. At Heritage Manor Nursing Home on the Christian Health campus in Bergen County, NJ, we never forget that each person in our care is an individual. Here, our staff seek not only to meet physical needs, but also to acknowledge and enhance each individual’s spiritual and emotional well-being.
Heritage Manor offers four specialized areas of care:
Providing the best care starts with having the best people. A full-time Medical Director is on staff and coordinates a team that includes:
Together, these team members create an individualized care plan for each resident that is designed to meet any special needs he or she may have. All care plans are reviewed every three months by the Interdisciplinary Care Team (IDC). In addition, Christian Health Rehabilitation services works closely with the IDC to improve residents’ quality of life through programs such as Balance and Fall Prevention, Seating and Positioning, Contracture Management, and more.
Additional, specialized consultants at Heritage Manor include dentists, podiatrists, psychiatric-service professionals, wound-care experts, and skilled rehabilitation therapists.
When someone you love has Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia, caring for them can be challenging. Heritage Manor Nursing Home’s dementia-care services are specially designed to accommodate people with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Our staff members are specially trained in dementia care and offer watchful, compassionate attention through a resident wander-prevention system. In addition, a structured, specialized calendar of activities is created to meet the specific needs and abilities of patients.
Heritage Manor is Medicare- and Medicaid-certified with accommodations for 134 patients in private and semi-private rooms. Large windows in every room provide natural light and beautiful views of the Ramapo Mountains, the woods and wildlife. Each room is pleasantly furnished with a bed, dresser, night table, over-bed lights for reading, a comfortable high-back chair, and flat-screen television. We also encourage residents and their families to personalize the rooms to their own taste with pictures and favorite accessories to create a home-like atmosphere. View the gallery here.
We are dedicated to developing all dimensions of wellness in our residents. Social and recreational programs provide opportunities for personal growth and the pursuit of new experiences. A full range of activities designed to educate, stimulate, and entertain is offered. Typical programs include:
It almost goes without saying, but food is an essential part of everyday life. Food nourishes and strengthens us, engages the senses and provides opportunities for socialization as friends gather for meals. At Heritage Manor we serve three healthy, delicious meals each day, plus snacks. Our menus include a wide variety of food choices, with both a restaurant-style, fine-dining program and an assisted-dining program. Individualized diets are created to meet patients’ special needs and guest tray service is available.
Other services include:
Family and friends are a vital part of the care team for any patient. Family support groups and Alzheimer’s Association meetings are held monthly at Christian Health. To learn more, call (201) 485-6581.
Christian Health is a non-profit organization open to anyone regardless of race, sex, or religion.
