Recreational activities are available to the veteran home residents on an individual basis, small or large group, or independent participation. Activities are available 7 days of the week, including evenings.
Our volunteers and donations are incorporated into our Activity Programs to provide a full array of activities for each resident according to his or her capacity and preference thereby ensuring an enhanced quality of life.
My Mom was there in 2013, in the dementia ward. We could not have asked for better care for her! They were amazing! She was always clean and well-cared for. They were so good to us, too.
We can't say enough wonderful things about every single person at NJVMH. Both of my in-laws are residents there, and the place is immaculately clean, there are a ton of activities, and the food always smells delicious! Regardless of how difficult the care needed, the nursing staff and aides take care of them like they are beloved family members, with kindness and compassion that is rare.
My brother has been at NJ veterans for six years now.. they give the veterans a lot of recreational choices. I find the nurses accommodating and he seems to have settled into his life there. I do give credit to the staff.. for making the most out of a sad phase in the lives of our Veterans.
