For seniors looking for a life of comfort and adventure, look no further than Bella Terra. Our recently renovated community in Jackson, New Jersey, is first-class all the way.

Kick off your shoes and stay awhile

A continuum of care setting offers residents and families the peace of mind of knowing that if one’s needs change—even temporarily—there is an appropriate level of care available at Bella Terra.

Don’t sweat the small stuff

Our staff creates a carefree culture of service and attention so that residents can live life to the fullest. We understand that it’s the little things that matter. We go the required level of clinical service to enable extraordinary experiences on a daily basis. Whether you are enjoying or freshly baked breads, playing cards or socializing with family and friends, you can always count on having a great time at Bella Terra.

Come and Go as You Please

Life at Bella Terra includes a rich variety of programs, events, and outings coordinated by our knowledgeable staff. We are always seeking input from residents for new ideas. Located near the Jersey shore, places of worship, hospitals, shopping, universities, and state parks, Bella Terra has no shortage of excitement within driving distance. Whatever your preference, the choice is yours, and it is our pleasure to arrange it.

Care that’s always there

Our Assisted Living residents and residents’ families receive valuable peace of mind knowing that a certified nurse is available 24 hours a day and a security system is in place for residents with mild dementia.

Worry-free lifestyle with just a simple lease

While some communities insist on new residents plopping down huge, non-refundable payments up-front, we like to do things a little differently. We care about not only the physical and emotional well being of our residents, but their financial health as well. That’s why we offer our residents all the perks of country club living without the expensive buy-in—just a simple lease. We offer a variety of very spacious apartment styles and floor plans, which feature full kitchens with plenty of cabinets and plenty of amenities listed below.

Executive bio for Bella Terra

Meet Our Executive Director

Peggy O’Neill

Peggy has over 18 years of experience working in the senior living industry and has worked at Senior Living for three of them. Her favorite part about her role as Executive Director of Bella Terra is listening to the stories of her residents.

“This great nation was built by the people who live in our community, helping them live life to the fullest is one of my greatest joys,” she says.

Peggy points to the family atmosphere of Bella Terra as what sets Bella Terra apart from other senior communities.

“Everyone at Bella Terra treats you like family.” We offer a variety of choices and encourage residents to try different activities to keep them happy, healthy, engaged and safe. We, as the staff, enjoy fostering new friendships, laughing and learning from our residents.”

Going above and beyond the clinical level of service is of the upmost importance to Peggy.

“Too often, the elderly are looked at as their ‘diagnosis’ instead of who they are as an individual,” she says. “Bella Terra takes the time to learn who you are: parents, grandparents, heroes, teachers, veterans, and so much more. We celebrate the individuality of every resident at Bella Terra.”

Peggy has worked in long-term care, residential care, independent living, sub-acute rehab, Alzheimer’s care, and Assisted Living administration prior to assuming the role of Executive Director of Bella Terra. Her hobbies include reading, travel, hockey, cooking and spending time with family. She graduated from East Stroudsburg. University.

Peggy is excited for you to experience Bella Terra for yourself!

“From what we saw during our tour this place looked good. The staff and the residents seemed friendly, and it was clean and well kept. It didn’t have quite the right atmosphere we were looking for for Mom, but that was just our personal tastes, nothing wrong with the community itself!” – Daughter

“Bella Terra is one of the most loving assisted living environments I’ve seen. Not only are the grounds gorgeous and the meals delicious, but everyone knows everyone and really seems to care. They do several fun events per year, including the indoor beach picnic party and the sockhop – where even the nurses get up and dance with the residents. I love to see people getting along so well and really caring for one another. It’s extraordinary and unforgettable.” – Danielle
