Center for Senior Care at Montclair Hospital
At Montclair Hospital Medical Center, we have made changes to provide specialized
care in a comfortable environment tailored to seniors. Led by a Board-Certified
Geriatrician, Dr. Jhujhar Singh, patient care is delivered by a clinical
team trained to meet the unique needs of the seniors in our community.
We are here to help the seniors in our community heal faster and make a
smooth transition home. As we age, there are subtle symptoms or indicators
that can be easily overlooked. Our team works with patients and their
families to consider these factors as well as the natural changes that
happen as we age. We also take the time to talk to patients about prevention
and to discuss relevant topics to their health, such as increased sensitivity
to common over the counter medications.

skid-resistant footwear, large, easy to read clocks and backlit, big-button
- Individualized and specialized assessment and care plan.

best care for our seniors. After all, seniors today have a lot to look
forward to, and we’re glad to do our part to keep them vibrant!
