Nursing Care: Heritage Manor Nursing Home
Loving, Compassionate Skilled-nursing Care and Memory Support
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 CHCC 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:
- Skilled-nursing care
- Dementia care for patients with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.
- The David F. Bolger Post-acute Care Unit for short-term rehabilitation that helps patients transition home following a hospitalization.
- Valley Hospice at Christian Health Care Center for those who need hospice care but for whom in-home care is not an option.
Health and Therapeutic Programs and Services
Providing the best care starts with having the best people. A full-time Medical Director is on staff and coordinates a team that includes:
- on-site physicians,
- clinical nurse specialists,
- geriatric nurse practitioners,
- social workers, and
- physical, occupational, and speech therapists.
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, CHCC 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:
- art and music,
- pet-visitation therapy,
- religious activities,
- fashion shows,
- themed events and dinners,
- birthday parties,
- intergenerational activities,
- monthly entertainment shows, and
- seasonal activities.
Meals and Personal Services
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:
- 24-hour nursing service,
- housekeeping and linen service,
- routine maintenance,
- pastoral care,
- in-house laundry service (additional fee), and
- beauty salon/barber shop (additional fee).
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 CHCC. To learn more, call (201) 848-5200 or see our calendar of events.
