New Jersey is home to a number of Nursing Homes and Assisted Living Facilities. Sycamore Living at East Hanover, encompasses both.
Imagine living life to the fullest in a Wellness Community that caters to your own goals, lifestyle preferences, and your personal needs. Sycamore understands that as time passes life changes. “Being able to stay in a familiar and safe environment where trusting relationships have been established matters”, says Chief Operating Officer Rich Molfetta. Regardless of your level of care, Sycamore can accommodate your needs through their comprehensive and integrated services.
The atmosphere at Sycamore Living, open since last April, is light-years away from that of a traditional nursing home. This state-of-the-art facility provides a tranquil, yet engaging environment. Each floor consists of two cozy “neighborhoods” with a central kitchen and dining area, living room with a safe fireplace, and an activity space for games and entertainment. Surrounding this open floor plan are private bedrooms that have a private bathrooms and a handicapped-accessible shower.
As inviting as the bedrooms are, the Sycamore team aims to get the residents out of their rooms and engaged. According to Mr. Molfetta, “The goal here is to provide a fulfilling and meaningful experience. Our team leads with their heart which helps create the right culture and environment for our residents to succeed”.
Sycamore has invested in their communities so residents can enjoy high quality amenities in the convenience of their own neighborhood. “We’ve created a luxury health care environment where hospitality meets healthcare”, says Molfetta. Sycamore residents enjoy a wide range of services, including a full theater experience with surround sound, an aquatic therapy pool, a game of bocce in the outside courtyard, or a round of billiards in the game room. There is also a beauty salon/barbershop offering spa services, and a full-service bar / lounge for socializing and entertainment.
Another unique feature of Sycamore Living is its incorporation of technology into its residents’ daily lives. They believe residents are happiest when they stay connected to those they love. The Lifestyle Engagement team provides education to residents and families on the use of devices such as Amazon Alexa and other web-based technologies. “Even before the pandemic, we had put an Amazon Alexa on every nightstand to ensure our residents can see and speak to those they care about whenever they want” says Molfetta.
As a Wellness Community, Sycamore takes the health of its residents very seriously: “We’ve partnered with Atlantic Health System and are well-located between Morristown and RWJ Barnabas Medical Centers. We have credentialed M.D.s on staff and skilled nursing care on the premises 24/7.”
