Monmouth Crossing Receives Advanced Standing Distinction

FREEHOLD TOWNSHIP–– Monmouth Crossing, CentraState Healthcare System’s senior assisted living community, has received the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services Advanced Standing distinction for assisted living facilities. The Advanced Standing program is a voluntary program open to all licensed assisted living facilities and comprehensive personal care homes in New Jersey. Monmouth Crossing received this distinction by demonstrating compliance with all local, state and federal regulations and submitting quality data that reached benchmarks set by its peers.

Quality standards that assisted living facilities must demonstrate to receive this distinction include ongoing employee training and high resident and family satisfaction scores.  Only those facilities that meet these qualifications are eligible for the certification.

Jay Solomon, vice president of senior services, explains, “This award recognizes the compassionate care that our residents and their families have come to expect from the staff at Monmouth Crossing.  It is rewarding to know that we rank among the best assisted living facilities in New Jersey; it is a great testament to our level of service for our residents.”

Monmouth Crossing offers 76 apartments including studio, one and two-bedroom designs.  Each resident at Monmouth Crossing receives a personalized care plan created by registered nurses, and services are customized to meet each resident’s needs and preferences.  The community also offers separate residential services for seniors with memory disorders.  Residents actively plan social and cultural programs, local and regional trips, holiday celebrations and oversee their own community governance.
