Continuing Care Neighborhood Opens at Lantern Hill Retirement Community

Lantern Hill Team celebrates the opening of Woodland Pointe continuing care neighborhood on campus.

Lantern Hill, a distinctive Erickson Living community in New Providence, N.J., opened its continuing care neighborhood, Woodland Pointe, this month. In addition to independent living, Lantern Hill specialized services and care will include sub-acute rehabilitation, assisted living, memory care, and nursing care.

Woodland Pointe features 17 private, one-bedroom assisted living apartment homes, 28 private studio apartments within memory care, and outpatient rehabilitation available for independent living residents. Later this summer, 40 private suites will open, adding Medicare-approved skilled nursing and rehabilitation services to the community.

Erickson Living designs its continuing care neighborhoods with a holistic, person-centered approach. Lantern Hill’s neighborhood features design details such as light-filled inviting living areas offering the comforts of home, plus a salon/spa, and creative arts studio. Assisted living and memory care apartment homes include large bathrooms, ample storage and closet space, and beautiful views of the scenic campus.

Continuing care at Lantern Hill makes it possible for people who value their independence to obtain some extra support with daily needs like light house-keeping, meal preparation, bathing, or medication management. The neighborhood’s intimate setting enables staff to cater services around each person’s need and requests.

“Our programming and how we deliver our services are dictated and driven by the residents themselves,” said Director of Continuing Care Jerry McDonald. “The environment provides for independence and a gracious lifestyle, but our programming really brings the building to life.”

“Our personalized care plans, holistic perspective, fabulous caregivers and comfortable accommodations reflect a level of individualized service and care that is truly distinct in the New Jersey marketplace,” said McDonald.

Residents can choose from a variety of activities that suit their interests, such as chair yoga and tai chi, mind-word games to stimulate the brain and memory, social clubs, happy hours, movie nights, musical programs, educational speaker series, pet therapy, and outings into the greater local community for shopping and dining.

Both independent living and continuing care also offer a host of religious programs and services for all faiths.

“We are building a community that is fun and enjoyable with high-quality standards for our residents and families,” said McDonald.

The opening of Woodland Pointe completes Lantern Hill’s Phase One, which includes 161 independent living apartments and 85 continuing care residences. Phase Two, currently under construction, is scheduled to open in early 2018 and includes two additional buildings, which will add 114 independent living apartments to the community, for a total of 275 independent living apartment homes.

You Want a Check for How Much!

 My first admissions gig was working for a small liberal arts college with a pretty hefty price tag.  Picture me at a college fair: name tag in place, pile of brochures ready to go.  An eager family would walk up and we’d start a conversation.  One of the first questions I’d get from parents was about cost and the moment that $50,000-plus figure left my mouth I ...
