The best of both worlds: independent living with friends close by.
Hillcrest independent living on Christian Health’s campus in Bergen County, NJ, was created for seniors who are in good health and want to maintain their independence but also find comfort in knowing that assistance is close by if needed. Each resident enjoys a private studio with the benefit of shared, restaurant-style dining, planned group activities, and the security of 24-hour staff presence in this pre-assisted living option.

A Room of One’s Own

Each resident of Hillcrest enjoys his or her own private studio with a private bathroom and shower. Residents can personalize their homes to their tastes with their own furnishings. Other features include:

  • Emergency call system in each bedroom and bathroom
  • Fire-safety features
  • Individually controlled heat and air conditioning
  • Housekeeping and linen service
  • General maintenance, regular safety checks, and snow removal

Enjoy healthy, delicious meals with all of the fun and none of the work.
One of the causes of poor nutrition or loss of appetite is eating alone. At Hillcrest, three healthy, delicious meals are served each day in a lovely setting, where residents enjoy the company of friends and restaurant-style dining. Snacks are also available throughout the day.

Planned social and recreational programming adds to the warmth of life at Hillcrest. Residents also enjoy quiet time and activities in the many common spaces including:

  • Wellness and rehabilitation room
  • Spacious living room
  • Library
  • TV lounge
  • Cheery sun room
  • Country kitchen
  • Outdoor patio and decks
