About Our Community
We have promised ourselves that we shall always treat our residents as we would our own loved ones. Nothing less than our best will do.
This is the promise that the staff at Brookdale White Chapel, formerly known as Emeritus at White Chapel, has shared since 1999, when our community first opened its doors. It’s a simple promise to be compassionate and kind, understanding and respectful – a promise to become extended family to the seniors entrusted in our care and to our residents who have chosen our retirement community for its active lifestyle.
Newark Delaware Assisted Living
Brookdale White Chapel is a Newark Delaware assisted living and memory care community nestled in a community setting providing a nearby courtyard and garden walkway. Our retirement community is conveniently located within 4 blocks of downtown Newark. The Newark free city bus stops at the entrance of the community, and we are a short walk to the Newark Senior Center, which has a gymnasium and pool on the property. We are minutes from Rt. 95 and easily accessible from northeast Maryland and southeast Pennsylvania. We have two major shopping centers within a mile radius. We are less than five miles from the premier hospital in the area, Christiana. The University of Delaware is in downtown Newark offering adult education and interest groups for seniors.
A Wonderful Selection
Brookdale White Chapel has 100 senior apartments with unique room variations not typical of most communities. These include studios, one-bedroom, two-bedrooms and efficiency apartments for fixed income options. We have a very comfortable, home-like setting and are a pet friendly community. Our apartments are located on three floors with accommodating elevators, a library, media room, computer/internet access and a cafe for general refreshments available at all hours.
Strong, Caring Professional Relationships
Our senior living community nurtures strong relationships with area hospitals, skilled nursing facilities and rehabilitation centers including Christiana Health Care System and Wilmington Hospital. We are able to be an invaluable resource for our residents and families.
Brookdale White Chapel, we have high staffing levels and clinical competency to support six levels of care. A 24-hour licensed nurse is always on-site including overnight care team assistance. We have a great nursing team with tenures up to 10 years, since we opened our doors.

Our Community Lifestyle
A Wonderful Active Lifestyle
At Brookdale White Chapel, we have a very diverse social and recreation calendar to meet the needs of a very independent clientele as well as those with cognitive stimulation needs and physical impairment. We support a variety of activities including live entertainment, outdoor excursions and creative and cultural events. Our residents have fun with our ice cream socials, manicures, or any one of our great clubs for the daily activities. Specific interest groups include poetry group, bird watching and bridge club.
Our senior living community offers many excursions out in the community to museums, Longwood Gardens, as well as lunch and scenic tours of the area. Our partnership with the Newark Senior Center on our campus offers an enhanced level of programming for our active seniors including travel and vacation options.
A variety of religious denominations are represented for spiritual needs. And for the holidays, we have celebrations for friends and family, entertainment and lots to enjoy.
Partnering with the Local Neighborhood Community
Brookdale White Chapel is available to host community organizations in our large dining area or second floor meeting room (i.e. Boy Scouts, Red Hats, Alzheimer’s Awareness). We also welcome the surrounding public to our religious services on Sundays. Our community also invites neighboring residents to our “dash and dine” program where they can join our residents for lunch or dinner in our fine dining restaurant. Brookdale White Chapel is a regular sponsor of the Alzheimer’s Association walk and the Newark Senior Center’s annual health and wellness fair.
