About Our Community
Set on beautifully landscaped grounds with a courtyard and walking trails, Emeritus at Emerson is right in the heart of Northern New Jersey. Located close to the Garden State Parkway and the Palisade Parkway, our independent retirement community offers 98 senior apartments. Emeritus at Emerson is located next to an organic farm on Old Hook Road. Nearby are many markets and stores. Our community is less than a half hour from New York City.
A Wonderful Selection
Part of our mission at Brookdale is to provide choices for our residents, and it starts with the type of rooms we have to offer. Emeritus at Emerson has three floors with a total of 98 senior apartments (we have studios, one-bedroom, two-bedrooms, and companion rooms). We have many areas of community space in which our residents can relax and entertain, including our backyard patio.
Strong, Caring Relationships
We value strong partnerships with area hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and rehabilitation centers such as Holy Name, Valley Hospital, Englewood Hospital, Emerson Health and Rehab, Woodcliff Lake Rehab, and Care 1. Through the communications and relationships that we share with the key staff within these affiliations, we provide a seamless continuum of care for our residents.
Our Community Lifestyle
A Wonderful Place to Live
At Emeritus at Emerson we provide meaningful activities that represent the interests of our residents. This is accomplished by learning about our residents’ life stories. Choices in social, physical, mental, spiritual, cultural and creative activities are encouraged. Residents enjoy a variety of live entertainment and outdoor excursions, all with the security of knowing care is available if they need it.
Every morning at Emeritus at Emerson starts off with exercise followed by coffee and current events. We have a computer program called Connected Living which is designed for seniors. Each resident is given four half-hour training sessions to learn how to use the computer. Every Wednesday there is a presentation which illustrates how the computer can be used for their entertainment.
Partnering with the Community
Emeritus at Emerson is active in local community events. We often host local clubs and organizations in our facility. The local schools often have their students come to our community to volunteer and assist us with our activities. Emeritus at Emerson actively participates in community and local events and we are a proud member of the Chamber of Commerce.
Three homemade meals are served each day. There are two seatings for each meal offering two entrees as well as dishes that are always available. Emeritus at Emerson has been awarded in the divisional dining services contest. We take great pride in our dining room.
