About Our Community
Brookdale Danvers, formerly Emeritus at Cherry Hill is directly off of Route 128 north and is nestled right next to the famous Cherry Hill Creamery and farm. We are also five minutes away from major supermarkets, retail stores and restaurants and 20 minutes away from The North Shore Mall. Our residents love the scenic rides at Brookdale Danvers because of the beautiful landscaping and ocean views in this region. The North Shore is known for its quaint seaside towns and Danvers happens to be the next town over from historic Salem, MA.
A Wonderful Selection
When a resident or guest walks into Brookdale Danvers, the fireplace by the front door immediately invites them in and makes them feel at home. The décor and colors are warm and our dining room/living room areas are open and spaciously filled with comfortable couches and chairs. We offer senior apartment choices which include studios, one-bedrooms and two-room suites, each one with a different style and feel. On every floor there is a country kitchen equipped with tables and chairs, televisions and full-sized refrigerators. We offer a continental breakfast in each country kitchen for late risers or those who enjoy grabbing their coffee and muffin in their bathrobe instead of getting fully dressed to attend breakfast in the dining room.
Every staff member at Brookdale Danvers abides by Brookdale’s promise to its customers which is “Our family is committed to yours”. The staff at Brookdale Danvers is truly a family and we work together to exceed the expectations of every single person who walks through our front door. We are welcoming and friendly and truly get to know each resident and their families on a personal level. Our Assistant Executive Director and Maintenance Director have been at Brookdale Danvers for a combined 16+ years and a few of our wait staff and caregivers have been here since the community opened its doors.
Our Community Lifestyle
A Wonderful, Active Lifestyle
Residents are kept busy each and every day by our Life Enrichment Director. She puts together a program of activities for our residents based on their interests and hobbies. Besides activities such as exercise, bingo and word games, we go above and beyond by providing a refreshment social every single afternoon and plans for musical entertainment every week. Our managers also rotate and do a special “manager’s social”. If there is an interest in a particular activity, we will make it happen. It is our goal to encourage residents to keep their minds and bodies active from morning until night. We are big believers in Brain Health here at Brookdale Danvers and that by keeping the mind active and engaged we can prolong the memory of our residents.
Partnering with the Local Neighborhood Community
At Brookdale Danvers most of our residents are from the immediate area. Because of this, we try to bring in local church groups and encourage organizations nearby to come in and offer their services to our residents. Some examples are local elementary schools bringing in students for sing-a-longs and a local priest to provide Catholic Mass for our residents. Because most of our residents are local, they find they usually know at least one person who also lives here who they knew from their past.
Strong, Caring, Professional Relationships
Brookdale Danvers works with a wide variety of healthcare providers onsite and has many great relationships with different rehabs and hospitals in the North Shore area. Excella Healthcare supplements for any skilled nursing our residents may need at the community and they have their own physical therapy office on our 3rd floor. In conjunction with physical therapy, they also provide occupational therapy and speech therapy. This allows many of our residents to have their rehab in the comfort of their own home. We also have a local physician who is at our community every other week and he is currently accepting new patients. Onsite dental and podiatry is also offered at Brookdale Danvers. We have a wonderful relationship with North Shore Hospice. Not only do they provide comfort and care for our residents and families so that they can stay with Brookdale Danvers, but they provide complimentary support groups to our families and residents who have loved ones with Alzheimer’s and Dementia.
Brookdale Danvers prides itself in providing three nutritious and delicious homemade meals a day. Our Dining Services Director works with a dietitian to create a menu for our residents that is sure to please even the pickiest of eaters. We always have choices for our residents and if they do not like one of our main choices, they can always order off of our alternate menu which includes a wide variety of sandwiches or even an omelet. Our Dining Services Director prepares all of the cakes for our resident birthday celebrations herself and she is always looking for feedback from our residents and families.
