Review of Juniper Village at Mount Joy

My mother lived at Juniper Village for a little over a year. My dad lived there also, but for only 4 months. I enjoyed visiting my parents there. The entire staff was very friendly and took very good care of my parents. They were also friendly to the family. It is well kept and clean. I would recommend it other people. In fact we did. Thank you to everyone that was involved.

My family was so grateful for the care my mom received at JV. Every single one person involved with my mom was kind and supportive. We felt that no other place could have been a better fit.

A newer community!

My mother in law is still adjusting to living at this community. The staff are very good at keeping us updated on her care and are on top of things. The activities seem to be adequate and they encourage her to participate. The main complaint she has is that the food does not always arrive hot. They keep the community clean and I would recommend it.

Review of Juniper Village at Mount Joy - Mount Joy, PA

Before my husband's move to JV I toured 6 other homes. What set JV at Mt Joy apart was the smiles and eye contact of the staff and the residents. We felt it indicated a happy environment. JV at Mt Joy is a truly pleasant place to live; clean and well-appointed. But most important is the care my husband receives. His needs are anticipated and fulfilled with kindness. His call bell is answered promptly. We are very happy with our choice. Thank you to all the staff at JV at Mt Joy for the excellent care my husband receives.

Review of Juniper Village at Mount Joy - Mount Joy, PA

The time came to be that Dad was not able to safely live by himself in his house. Local referrals indicated this facility was top-notch. Dad was reluctant to make the move, and at times still is, but he regularly remarks how clean and nice it is at this facility. We as family are more than pleased with the consistent level of care given to Dad. Truly a GREAT choice for us. Highly recommend this place.

Review of Juniper Village at Mount Joy - Mount Joy, PA

Nice community friendly staff. Room set up could be better for a shared room the closet area is only assessable from one residents side. Something to think about.

Hi, we truly appreciate your honest feedback.

Happy for 8 years and Counting.......

I have entrusted the care of my mother to Juniper since 2008 and have been extremely satisfied with the dedication and professionalism of the staff. They are responsive to our questions and concerns and have gone above and beyond to work with her on a daily basis. A benefit that we appreciate is that the facility is an ideal size where families can get to know the staff and communicate with them easily. I feel comfortable knowing that she is being cared for by such patient, caring individuals.

My Mother's stay at Juniper Village at Mount Joy

My Mother was in Juniper Village from August 2014 to February 23rd 2016.
She had dementia and had become some verbal. Some of the help knew how to redirect Mom and others did not. Juniper, needs to have more training for their help when it comes to dementia patients. Some of the help is very caring, others are there just for the paycheck. The week of February15th the children received a letter stating that we need to get our Mother out of Juniper Village in 30 days and find another place for her, and that we would need to provide 24 hour surveillance of Mother while she remained there. The director called both my brother and I while in church (had to leave) that Sunday morning and told us to hurry up and get the 24 hour going. With all our busy lives we did do this request until we hurried to find another place for Mom. Juniper does have a memory care, but the director did not want to put her in that part of the facility. The Director thought it was better to separate my Step Dad and my Mother instead of trying to work with the family to keep them together. It was heartbreaking the night (February 23, 2016) we had to take Mom to another place. My mother ended up falling at the place we chose to take her. She had bleeding in the brain and ended up in the trama care, then with hospice and she passed away on March 26th, 2016. We know that our Mother could have been with us longer , which hurts all of us deeply. I think this was a personal thing against the family with the Director, because we were very hands on with Mom and they do not seem to like it when we would question things. The in house doctor changed her medication without calling the family and then they wondered why Mother had changes. We questioned this and the director would not listen. Took the Doctor's side. Juniper has failed my Mother and the family. We were told from the beginning that our Mother could stay there until her end of life. They do not try to work through problems. They think it is best to get the resident out of the facility. This is why Juniper's ratings are high. They do not fool around with problem residents. They are cast aside. This has been a very sad journey for the family, but we know that Mom is having a wonderful time in heaven. God is blessing you now, Mom!!
To the staff at Juniper that cared, Thank you so much!!

Review of Juniper Village at Mount Joy - Mount Joy, PA

Our family is so very pleased with the individualized care of our loved one. Everyone knows each resident by name, even if they do not provide direct care for the resident. We could not be happier, and have comfort and peace-of-mind knowing that our sweet Joan is being taken care of like a family member.

Thank you Dave, we appreciate your gratitude and recommendation to others. It is truly our pleasure to provide care for your dad.

It's been really good!

Mom has been at Juniper Village for some time now and will be coming home soon. The experience we've all had there has been wonderful. The staff are very friendly and accommodating and although Mom hasn't been participating in any activities, there's plenty for the residents to do and they have tried to encourage her to participate it's just not her thing. Mom likes the food and Juniper Village is just a nice place all the way around! We are very happy with them.

Peace of Mind

My grandmother recently celebrated 1 year at Juniper Village at Mount Joy. When considering senior living for her, it was very important to us that her new residence offered a balance of care and independence; one that saw past her age as a number (100 at time of admission) and recognized the independent qualities she possessed. Now, as she approaches her 102nd birthday, she continues to do many things independently with the loving support of Juniper's staff. Juniper Village at Mount Joy is a far cry from the dependence that she and many of her generation fear when considering senior care. We couldn't be happier with her care, the staff and the value.

Juniper Communities

Local Representative

Thank you so much for your heartfelt words. It means the world to us to be recognized by our residents and their families for not only the excellent care that we provide, but also for our ability to see each resident as an individual and work with their strengths in order to remain as independent as possible. We pride ourselves on our individualized approach to care and appreciate your recognition of that and your recommendation of Juniper Village at Mount Joy to others. Thank you!

I Wanted Only the Best for My Mom

When I had to quickly find assisted living in the Lancaster area for my 91 year old mother that met my stringent requirements for safety, cost, convenience to where I lived, caring staff, cleanliness, social program, and pleasant living environment I turned to A Place for Mom for help.

They provided me with 6 centers within my geographic search area. And after my evaluation based on my criteria, Juniper at Mount Joy was the best choice. Juniper gives you the feel of a first class hotel.

My mother quickly blended in and loves where she's living. She's made friends quickly and after just a little over 3 weeks, she is cherished by the staff just as much as she cherishes them.

That provides me with a peace of mind knowing that Juniper was the best choice for me and for my mom.

I give Juniper at Mount Joy a maximum rating for any rating system of your choice.

Juniper Communities

Local Representative

It is so great.

They have really taken care of my mom so well. We are so happy how she got to settle in. The level of contact they provide. I think it's because it's such a small Community, that they have a lot more hands on with their residents. It's very clean there. I am so glad A Place for Mom helped me find this place. If it wasn't for them I wouldn't have found it myself.

Excellent, quality care for a loved one.

Juniper Village of Mount Joy, PA, was one of several facilities suggested to us in our search to find accommodations for my mother-in-law. When we visited the site, we found it to be attractive and clean with a qualified medical staff. Three of us made our decision and settled "Mom" in Juniper Village in Mount Joy, PA, on April 16, 2014. She has been very happy there and enjoying herself with all the various activities. We believe they have a genuine interest in providing a good, healthy environment for their guests and, if possible, an improvement in their quality of life. As a matter of fact, "Mom's" health and mobility have improved in the past few months. We would recommend this facility to anyone interested in good quality care for a loved one.E
