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 Voorhees, formerly known as Emeritus at Voorhees, 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.
The Perfect Location
Brookdale Voorhees is Voorhees New Jersey Assisted Living and Memory Care community centrally located in a quiet residential area, but is very close to shopping, restaurants, movie theaters, hospitals and doctors’ offices. Our retirement community is also only 30 minutes away from Philadelphia, which is a Mecca for cultural and spiritual areas, as well as some of the best hospitals in the country!
A Wonderful Selection
Brookdale Voorhees is a warm, family-oriented community. We all take care and look out for one another. Our community has 77 senior apartments, which are bright and cheery and make you feel right at home. You have choices of studios, one-bedrooms and one-bedroom deluxe apartments with your own patio. And if you wish to have a companion, we have friendship suites as well. We have a 15-bed memory care neighborhood specializing in those with advanced dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. We also have a gym and movie theater on premise.
Strong, Caring Professional Relationships
We nurture strong relationships with area hospitals and skilled nursing facilities. We are also affiliated with the Health Care Association of New Jersey.
The community’s staff is comprised of professionals that have tenures as long as 10 years (as long as our building as been open). Brookdale Voorhees has been very selective when choosing who will make up our management team to serve its residents; only those with a commitment to service and longevity as a goal are accepted into this family. We offer excellence in care in both assisted living and memory care.
Our Community Lifestyle
A Wonderful Active Lifestyle
Here at Brookdale Voorhees, our days are packed with daily activities, starting our day with exercises, going on shopping trips and excursions, having informational seminars, playing games, enjoying happy hour, movies, and mental and spiritual creative activities. Families join us for parties with live entertainment and much more. We are also involved in our retirement community. For example, our knitting club donates handmade blankets to Virtua hospital for intensive care babies.
Partnering with the Local Neighborhood Community
We at Brookdale Voorhees are committed to our local community. We fundraise for a range of great causes from the Alzheimer’s Association, to our local animal shelter to knitting blankets for cancer patients and sick babies. We also partner with our local police department, which frequently sends officers to give us seminars on senior safety. Three homemade meals are served daily, as well as snacks. We have a restaurant-style dining room with waiters and waitresses. Each meal has two seatings so our residents have a choice of dining earlier or later.
