Premier Senior Living in Emerson, NJ
Set on beautifully landscaped grounds with a courtyard and walking trails, Brookdale Emerson is a well-respected senior living community that provides Assisted Living and Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care services for seniors.
Located right in the heart of Northern New Jersey, we are very close to the Garden State Parkway and the Palisade Parkway. We are situated right next to an organic farm on Old Hook Road, nearby many markets and stores, and less than a half hour from New York City.
Exceptional Care with Compassionate Service
If you are looking for quality care, you’ve come to the right place. We provide two levels of care for seniors: Assisted Living and Memory Care. Because we offer two different care levels, we’ll be able to continue serving you if your needs change during your stay with us.
- Assisted Living — We provide a wonderful assisted living lifestyle for our residents. Our staff strives to create the right balance of assistance — helping you remain as independent as possible while providing the care that you need to live a healthy and safe lifestyle.
- Memory Care — Our staff helps those with memory loss maintain their independence for as long as possible. Our custom programs provide compassionate care and meaningful interaction that provide our residents with daily moments of success.
For both forms of care, we provide an individualized experience for our seniors. We are able to create personalized care plans, based on your specific needs, so you only pay for the services you need and nothing more.
Life at Brookdale Emerson
Part of our mission is to provide choices for our residents, and it starts with the type of rooms we have to offer. Our community has three floors with a total of 98 senior apartments that come in a variety of sizes and styles, including studios, one-bedroom, two-bedrooms, and companion rooms.
We have many areas of community space, including a backyard patio, in which our residents can relax and entertain. We serve our residents three homemade meals each day, and we take great pride in our dining room and the type of dining experience we offer seniors.
At Brookdale Emerson, we provide meaningful activities that represent the interests of our residents. We learn about our residents’ life stories and use that to cultivate activities that they would enjoy. Our community offers many on-site activities, a variety of live entertainment and outdoor excursions, all with the security of knowing care is available if our residents need it.

Levels of Care
At the Brookdale Emerson, we can provide you with two specialized forms of care — Assisted Living and Memory Care. Both are designed to cater to the individual, with customized care plans that can fit your specific needs.
Assisted Living Tailored to Your Needs
Our Assisted Living community can offer help if you need assistance with daily activities such as bathing, dressing and administering needed medication. Just like family, we provide the extra assistance you may need with your daily activities, while helping you maintain the privacy, dignity and independence that means so much to you.
Our skilled and trained staff does more than just provide you with the right kind of assistance to live a healthy and safe lifestyle; we can offer care plans that are customized to you.
It all starts with a Personal Service Assessment. With each of our residents, we sit down and listen to their needs. We don’t try to force a care plan on you. Instead, we work with you to figure out the level of assistance you feel comfortable with. Our support is based on only what you need, so you don’t end up paying for a ton of extra services.
We strive to provide an individualized experience for each of our residents. It’s evident in the customized plans that we offer, but it’s also apparent in the atmosphere we provide for our seniors. We learn details about our residents — from their favorite snack and recipe to a lifelong passion — and use that to provide a truly individualized living experience.
Personalized Approach to Memory Care
When you or your loved one joins our Memory Care community, you’ll be given the strongest kind of support, security and life-enriching programs. We create an environment that allows you to feel safe while enjoying meaningful experiences every day.
We have a state-of-the-art approach to Alzheimer’s and Dementia care, which has been perfected throughout the years. This approach is based on the Clare Bridge concept that utilizes the latest research and innovations to deliver quality Memory Care to seniors. We focus on caring for the individual — working to encourage feelings of belonging, a sense of self, purpose and fulfillment.
After undergoing specific training, our staff gently assists residents with daily programs that are designed to maintain a resident’s abilities and encourage the use of their current skills. Programs may include a “Morning Mental Workout” where residents might enjoy brain-stimulating games or discussions, and a Person-Centered Program, which may honor a resident’s past interests and involvements.
