Everyone has a path in life. Some of us are set in our ways and others are still figuring it out as we go along. Whatever your path may be, it doesn’t have to be taken alone – especially as you age. At Lester, you will be a part of a warm, senior community that is always here for you. Nestled in the heart of Morris County, Lester offers assisted living, independent living and memory care options to suit every senior lifestyle.
We can help you a little or a lot, and either way you will have access to socialization activities, exercise, and many of your favorite pastimes (bridge club, anyone?). We’ll help you with your cooking and cleaning, and for those who need it, we’ll keep track of your medications too. With so many senior living options under one roof, we can easily customize care to your specific needs. Our highly qualified associates are available on site to provide immediate care to residents and peace of mind to families, in any way they can.
At Lester’s independent living apartments, seniors have access to many services, social and dining programs, and other types of assistance, while maintaining their independent lifestyle. You can take advantage of as many of these services as you like, but it’s always your choice.
The JCHC independent living apartments at Lester are part of a larger senior campus that includes another building dedicated to assisted living apartments. These two buildings are interconnected by a beautiful lobby and dining rooms, and all the residents of the Lester campus share many social programs, entertainment and educational opportunities. Because so much staff is on-site, independent living residents at Lester have many more options for entertainment, and assistance than would be available at a normal senior apartment.
At Lester, you will be part of a warm, assisted living community that celebrates life to the fullest. Having caregivers on-site around the clock, means you can get the extra help you need, when you need it. JCHC at Lester has one of the best ratios of staff to residents in the industry, which means we never skimp on care. Our staff can assist with cooking, cleaning, keeping track of medications, and more, all in the comfort and privacy of your apartment. The majority of our employees have been with us for over 15 years! So, it’s safe to say they love it here as much as our residents.
Those who experience memory loss want to hang onto one thing: dignity. Preserving the dignity of those with dementia is at the core of what we do here at Lester. All of our caregivers have been extensively trained to manage behavioral patterns associated with Alzheimer’s disease and all forms of dementia. Certified caregivers are able to provide daily support to residents in our Memory Care Suite. These newly renovated apartments have dementia-friendly floor plans to enforce safety and eliminate the risk of emergency care. Your loved one will also have the ability to customize the space to make it look and feel more like home.
Respite stays offer caregivers or children of senior parents the opportunity to take a short break from the daily care of an elderly loved one. It’s also a perfect opportunity for your loved one to “try out” living in a senior community. Oftentimes, the idea of a “short term stay” is an easier bridge for your loved one to cross, when broaching the subject of moving to an assisted living facility. At Lester, family caregivers can be confident in the knowledge that your loved ones will be comfortable, entertained, and cared for both mentally and physically.
