I'm an adviser at the Piscataway Senior Center. The best luncheon has been generously provided compliments of Parker House at the River Rd. Parker House and this past summer at Monroe. Every year they have honored our group by giving us a place to have our monthly meeting after the delicious luncheon. I had a chance to see the chef at Monroe and thank him for a very tasty salad and food he prepared.

I got an appointment quickly. I've never had to wait too long. They always take the time to listen to me. I know they really care about me and what I have to say. I'm always amazed at how considerate and concerned they are for my well-being. Their advice is always wonderful and completely unbiased. I couldn't believe how knowledgeable and well-informed the staff was. They were able to answer all my questions, except the ones they needed to have their boss's input on. It was great to be able to talk to such a skilled staff. They are so kind and caring, and they stay open way past their closing time to help anyone who needs them. They wouldn't deny anyone that needed help. I know I can always count on them.
