Our Community

Our top goal is to deliver quality care in a professional, compassionate and respectful manner. At our community, we offer residents two types of care: Assisted Living and Memory Care. Providing two different types of care allows us to better serve New Jersey seniors. Both are extremely important, but each one is tailored to fit certain medical needs.

  • Assisted Living Care is designed to let our residents live as independently as possible while utilizing staff assistance to make their lives easier and healthier.
  • Memory Care programs can help your loved one maintain their mental functions, be more engaged with the world and enjoy the satisfaction and dignity of daily moments of success.

Our care is delivered by a team of highly trained, professional and caring individuals. We are proud of the staff we have at our community, and we strive to instill in all team members a sincere belief that their individual contributions are important to our residents’ well being and to the success of our organization.

High Quality Lifestyle

Set on beautifully landscaped grounds, Brookdale Stafford is considered one of New Jersey’s premier senior living communities. We provide the look of an elegant resort with the essence of a cozy home. Our community features 77 senior apartments located on two floors with a grand staircase or elevator for your convenience.

Whether sitting by the fireplace in the winter or on a rocking chair in the summer, you’ll love the wide variety of common areas we offer, all of which provide opportunities for entertainment, socializing and relaxing. Enjoy the company of friends with some lemonade in our gorgeous sunroom.

Or, treat yourself to a classic movie with popcorn in our expansive theater. Take a stroll through our well-manicured courtyard. Or, relish a delicious meal in our fine dining room. You’ll have everything you need, all in one central location.

Plenty of Activities Available

At Brookdale Stafford, we value our residents’ opinions and we rely on their feedback to plan activities they enjoy. These activities include exercise, happy hour and brain-stimulating games.

Levels of Care

When you stay at Brookdale Stafford, you can have two different care options: Assisted Living and Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care. With each one, our staff is dedicated to supporting and caring for the individual’s needs.

Personalized Assisted Living

We offer a unique blend of service, care and hospitality for those looking to live an independent lifestyle but who also want to receive help performing certain daily tasks. Our community in Manahawkin, NJ has an impressive line of services and amenities to make your life a little easier.

Carefully selected employees can assist you with daily activities like dressing, bathing and dispensing of medications. No more struggling with trying to do these tasks on your own or relying on family members. Our staff is trained to administer care professionally, with the upmost respect for residents, and provide only the support that residents need.

Each resident has an individualized and custom care plan that’s implemented by our skilled medical professionals. Each plan can be tailored to fit your particular needs, and we achieve this through a Personal Service Assessment. We will take time to listen to you and understand your needs, and then craft a care program that’s right for you.

Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care

Our Clare Bridge Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care program was created over 25 years ago and continually embraces current research in dementia care, coupled with the experience of caring for thousands of people with dementia.

Our highly-trained staff takes this approach with every one of our residents. We are committed to having our memory care be centered on the person. Our program strives to make each person feel a sense of belonging and purpose.

We offer a gentle daily structure (seven days per week) choreographed with a minimum of six programs per day. All are designed to maintain the resident’s abilities and to encourage the use of their current skills.

Dining Program

Our dining program was designed by a team of culinary associates, experts in dementia care, and registered dieticians. Our goal through the dining program is to support the resident’s opportunity to enjoy and master the dining experience. Some of the program’s specialized aspects include:

  • Dementia-Friendly Menus — providing diverse offerings that help prevent weight-loss. Selections are easy to manage, familiar and appealing to the senses.
  • Individualized Dining Assistance — includes evaluating each resident to determine the level of assistance needed during dining, with the goal of preserving their use of utensils for as long as possible.
  • The Supportive Dining Environment — which incorporates small dining rooms with consistent seating to support the challenges of those with dementia, this encourages familiarity and socialization while supporting the needs of the residents through the assignment of resident care assistants. Music, centerpieces, warm, scented wash towels and fresh linens enhance the dining experience.
