The words of residents and their families, as well as those who serve as volunteers speaks, to the qualitative difference of Bright Side Manor and why it must be revitalized and preserved.
“My mother could have afforded to reside in any of the new, "fancy" assisted living facilities in this area. We chose Bright Side Manor, however, because when I visited some of the places with all the bells and whistles, I noticed something missing. There was not a strong connection between the staff and the residents. I pictured my mother isolating herself in her big apartment that she didn't need. In contrast, when I visited Bright Side Manor, I felt like I was in someone's home. I noticed a very strong connection between the residents and staff and felt comfortable that my mother's needs would never go unnoticed.”
“There is no greater place for our Mom to be than at Bright Side Manor. It’s a facility that really cares for their residents. The entire staff have shown so much love and compassion for the residents. Thank you for all that you do. Each and every one of you are a blessing to us and we are grateful to you for our Mom’s happiness and well-being.”
"Bright Side Manor is a gift from God for my sister. It's extremely difficult to find a caring facility that accepts Medicaid. I don't know what we would have done without Bright Side. She gets quality care, great food, and lots of activities. Thank God for Bright Side."
“My brother and I are retired, so we couldn’t support our sister financially. Bright Side Manor welcomed my sister with open arms. Bright Side has truly become her “home”. Thrilled with care and attention that she gets at Bright Side Manor. I don’t know what we’d do it Bright Side wasn’t available.’’
“When we were looking for an assisted living community for my mother, it was appalling that Bright Side Manor was the only facility in Bergen County that was affordable as the cost of other assisted living facilities, especially in Bergen County, were exorbitant and well out of reach.’’
