Area seniors and loved ones will learn about independent and assisted living options, as well as dementia care, at Lester’s senior living community.

(Courtesy of Lester Senior Housing) The Lester Senior Housing Community in Whippany will host two open houses on consecutive Wednesdays, January 24 and January 31, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. Area seniors and their family members are invited to tour the distinctive senior residence, including the new Memory Care Suite. The tour will start in the living room off the lobby of the community’s Heller Independent Living Apartments, where light refreshments will be served. To RSVP for the open house, contact David Rozen at 973-929-2725 or [email protected]

Visitors will have a chance to get information about:

Memory care at Lester—Available for adults ages 62 and older with a dementia-related diagnosis. The community’s caregivers provide highly personalized care that focuses on the individual’s well-being at all times in intimate, supportive surroundings. This person-centered dementia care supports each resident’s specific needs with a focus on comfort and calm while also engaging each person with meaningful activities.

Short-term respite stays—Seniors can sample the Lester lifestyle with a short-term respite stay in the Weston Assisted Living Residence. These accommodations are for seniors who need some help with the tasks of daily living and are available for anywhere from 10 days to two months. Respite stays are also available in the Memory Care Suite. These short-term stays include many of the amenities that full-time residents enjoy, and those who would like to make Lester Senior Housing Community their permanent home may do so based on availability.

The Lester Senior Housing Community is located at 901-903 Route 10 East in Whippany, on the Alex Aidekman Family Jewish Community Campus. It is one of four senior living communities owned and managed by the Jewish Community Housing Corporation of Metropolitan New Jersey (JCHC).
