This is an amazing facility that is incredibly accommodating. I know my grandmother is very difficult and they have done an absolutely wonderful job with her. I don't write reviews normally, but they really do great work here. The staff is always very friendly and very professional, if your loved one is here they are in good hands.
Staff is friendly & truly cares for the residents. Building design is perfect for the wanderer. Rooms are generous size & kept clean & neat. My family member adjusted quickly. Not home but a safe, beautiful environment for my loved one.
I'm a contractor that has the opportunity to frequent this facility. If you are anything but instantly happy the second you step inside the residence from reception, you're just a miserable person. Staff is AMAZING! Not one single attitude ever. In my job, that's unusual and a God send. There are times that its been such a bad day at work that I pray for a call from them so I can get some peace that sticks with me the rest of my shift. I love it here and I want to move in.

Our Person-Centered Care approach focuses on our residents’ needs, while our Active Living Programs allow them to live life to their fullest capability. Our residents feel at home in Juniper Glen because our approach is based on the residents’ lifetime routine, not ours. Additionally, we provide health monitoring, medication management, assistance with dressing, bathing, grooming, and oral care.

Our passionate and dedicated team of skilled professionals offer exceptional support for our residents’ needs, including physical, social, emotional, and cognitive needs, through engaging daily activities.
It’s easy to become spoiled with our 24/7 Dining Experience. We go beyond all-day dining so you can enjoy gourmet food prepared from the freshest ingredients by our Executive Chef and team of professionals any time of day or night. Since our quality of food and service must be experienced, we invite you to join us for lunch or dinner. Our chef is trained and happy to accommodate residents with dietary needs due to various health restrictions, such as low gluten and sugar-free diets, and much more.
Our daily menu also incorporates foods from the Rush University Medical Center MIND diet that fosters brain health. Our goal is that the MIND diet, in conjunction with our many Memory Care programs, will help hold off memory issues for as long as possible. Entrees are served on colored plates to stimulate appetite, and a server greets each resident individually with multiple daily menu choices. Learn more about our Memory Care dining program and the MIND diet.
Sensory stimulation is the activation of one or more of the five senses (taste, smell, vision, hearing, and touch) with the goal of evoking positive feelings. This innovative therapy can reduce tension, agitation, anxiety, depression, and anger which are common behavioral side effects in seniors suffering from Alzheimer’s and other dementias. By planning meaningful, stimulating activities and considering our residents’ unique interests, we can create personal experiences in our custom Sensory Spas and make a significant difference in our residents’ lives.
Our state-of-the-art Virtual Reality Therapy enables residents to explore bucket list journeys and experiences they’ve always wanted to complete, all within the comfort of our community. With VR Therapy, your loved one can explore the Caribbean sea and virtually scuba dive with sting rays, or discover an untapped passion for music with VR first row seats to the New York Metropolitan Opera House. Whether it’s travel or new experiences your loved one seeks, our new, groundbreaking therapy can make almost any adventure dreams a virtual reality.
