Assisted Living Questions
What is an assisted living community ?
Healthier living is allowing Americans to live longer lives. However, due to the onset of age-related conditions, a majority of seniors will eventually need assistance with activities for daily living like bathing, food preparation, grooming, dressing, etc. Assisted Living Community offer housing alternatives for those that do not require extensive medical or nursing care by making life more manageable and enjoyable. Moreover, active communities promote daily social engagement for senior residents to prevent feelings of isolation.

What makes your communities different from other care options?
As a pioneer in residential living for those with Alzheimer’s and other dementia-related illnesses, our comfortable memory care living NJ communities offer several unique features that make us different from assisted living and skilled nursing facilities:
- Small, intimate community of no more than 16 residents
- Unparalleled care partner to resident ratio
- This allows our team to provide personalized care to each resident. Additionally, our residents are able to get used to seeing the same smiling faces each day.
- Upfront, bundled pricing
- There are no hidden or potentially unknown costs surrounding medication administration, levels of care, and other additions.
- Fox Trail Memory Care Living is licensed under the NJ Department of Health instead of the NJ Department of Community Affairs
- As the largest provider of residential dementia care in NJ, we are always striving to ensure that we are delivering the best quality experience for our residents, as well as the community at large.
Do the communities have private bedrooms?
Yes. All of our memory care living NJ communities are designed with individual bedrooms to provide senior residents with as much privacy and comfort as possible. Each room contains basic bedroom furniture, such as bed and dresser, as well as beddings and linens. Families are encouraged to also add familiar items from home. We want everyone to feel comfortable in our memory care community.
Should I put a TV in my loved one's room?
Our residents can choose to have a TV or radio in their room. However, we encourage our residents to leave their personal TVs at home and to socialize with the other residents throughout the community living room.
How can I be involved with a resident's care?
We believe you should be involved in every way in which you feel comfortable at Fox Trail Memory Care Living. Every family member handles the stress of memory care differently and it is important for you to decide what is best for your relationship, as well as your personal well-being. Rest assured that we will support you every step of the way.
Do your communities offer daily activities for residents?
Yes. All of our memory care living NJ communities offer many daily activities designed and delivered by our activity coordinator to meet your loved one's specific needs. Through our compassionate and attentive memory care, we enable each resident to experience as many daily achievements as possible.
At what times do residents have to eat?
Meals, snacks and beverages are served family style. A nutritious breakfast, lunch and dinner are offered at normal mealtimes. Moreover, we try to respect and support the lifestyle that each resident may have practiced for a lifetime. For example, "late risers" and "early risers" can eat breakfast at differing times. Although our care professionals encourage each resident to eat his or her meal with the other residents, we can accommodate special circumstances and any unique dietary needs as prescribed by the resident’s doctor.
Does Fox Trail Memory Care Living have specific visiting hours?
Since this is your loved one's home, family and friends are welcomed to visit during normal hours on any day of the week. We do ask that you show full respect for all of the residents in our community, as it is their home too.
What if the resident likes to wander?
Wandering among seniors with any form of memory loss is common. At Fox Trail Memory Care Living communities, wandering is monitored but not discouraged as such. Moreover, our care professionals are trained to address each situation individually and provide personalized solutions. For example, a resident who wants to "go home" doesn't need to be corrected. Instead, our staff member will reassure them that they are safe and will be staying here tonight. In addition, our communities are designed with hallways that feed back into the common areas to facilitate safe wandering.
Can my loved one walk around at night if he or she can't sleep?
Absolutely. We all have restless nights and our staff respects your loved one's need to get up and walk. Since our care professionals are continuously trained in the handling of unique needs of seniors residents with Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia, we will help determine if the restlessness is a patterned behavior related to his or her memory loss. If so, any concerns will be discussed with the family and the resident's doctor.
What amenities and services do you offer?
We are proud to offer comprehensive amenities and services including 24-hour onsite care, community security system, home cooked meals and snacks cooked daily, wellness and exercise programs, recreational activities, help with medication management, social areas, walking paths and more to be a comfortable memory care community.
Is the memory care community secure? What happens if a resident wanders away?
Each memory care living NJ community is equipped with a non-threatening, state of the art security system. Our outdoor spaces are protected by a secured, alarmed picket fence. Additionally, every door and window at each community is protected by an audible alarm that alerts staff and our security company when an unaccompanied resident attempts to wander outside the home or open the window.
How often are housekeeping and laundry service provided?
Once every two weeks each resident’s room is deep cleaned, as well as on an as needed basis. Additionally, once a week, we provide laundry services.
When we met with the personnel at Fox Trail Memory Care Living at Paramus, we couldn't believe how homey and clean it was. We were so excited that my father was going to go and be a resident there. They have home cooked meals, they do activities with the residents, they involve the family in activities also. Plus, the cost per month is substantially lower than other facilities in the area almost by half. In the end, however, my father couldn't stay there as he needed more advanced care in a more traditional secured nursing home as his dementia has become more advanced. We were very disappointed that he had to leave. I recommend it to anyone who is looking for a place for their loved one. Fox Trail is a good place for residents that aren't considered a "security threat" and are pretty docile, which my father wasn't. It wasn't enough to cover my father's care and needs.
