What could be finer than retiring to a charming, turn-of-the-century colonial on a quiet, residential street? Not having to worry about the upkeep — or preparing your own meals! Since 1963, The Walpan Residence in Montclair, New Jersey, has offered seniors elegant independent living in a luxurious, family-like atmosphere designed to provide all the comforts of home.
The Walpan Residence offers the best of both worlds: independence, with the assurance that a helping hand is there when you need it. Similar to an Inn or Bed & Breakfast, The Walpan caters to a senior’s every need, treating each resident as a treasured guest. Residents enjoy stylish living accommodations, three delicious meals a day, and a relaxed, supportive environment that allows them the freedom to pursue personal interests.
For the independent senior who no longer wishes to maintain his or her own home, The Walpan is an outstanding, cost-effective alternative to a long-term care facility. Its mission is luxury with dignity and choice. Along with the benefits and convenience of a professional staff trained to serve a senior’s special needs, family members enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing their loved one is being cared for in a secure, nurturing environment.
Unlike assisted living and nursing home costs, which are published annually by Genworth Financial, there is very little published pricing information available on independent living facilities. According to a state-by-state chart compiled by SeniorHomes.com, independent living prices in New Jersey as of 2015 range from a monthly minimum of $2000, to a monthly maximum of $5355, with an average cost of $3371. We suggest you use these figures as a guideline when considering The Walpan Residence.
“My sister is so busy now since she moved into The Walpan Residence. She is having such a great time. I think she has adjusted well with the move into the community. She thinks everyone is super-kind and helpful. They help her with transportation to and from her appointments. They really care about her and look after her very well. The community is wonderful and really nice looking and the location is around the block from her old neighborhood she grown up in, so she is still close to her friends. It has been a good experience for us, the owner of the community has been great to us and I would highly recommend this community.”
“My Mom is really enjoying this place! The staff is incredible, the owner is really great, and the family that fills in for him when he takes time off is wonderful. They are all very warm, caring, and responsible, all of Mom’s needs are cared for. Mom says the food is excellent, the chef is great.
“Mom has complained that resident turnover can be high, it’s hard to meet new people that often. I also believe they should have more mentally stimulating activities for the residents to keep them active.”
“They are very clean. I feel like I am definitely getting my money’s worth. I have heard that they are really good about responding if he calls for help. I can’t really think of anything I would like them to do better or any concerns either. We chose them because they were the best fit for our loved one.”
