Brookdale West Orange is considered one of the premier Assisted Living and Alzheimer’s and dementia care communities in West Orange, New Jersey, receiving the the 2010 ALFA Best of the Best award.
Our community is tucked away just off Prospect Avenue, providing a wonderful view of the local golf course. We are just minutes away from the Garden State Parkway and 30 minutes away from NYC. So our residents are within reach of some of the finest shopping, restaurants and entertainment in the country.
When you become a resident at our community, you’ll be treated to some of the finest care in the region. For our staff this isn’t just a job — it’s a passion. And they will work with you to create a personalized care plan that fits your needs. Here’s a little about our two levels of care:
Upon walking through our doors, you’ll immediately be greeted by the warm and inviting smiles of our residents, family, and staff. We offer three different styles of senior apartments. Our studio is perfect for someone living on their own and who loves a cozy place to call home.
Our one-bedroom is great for someone looking for a bit more space, or who is looking to move in with a spouse. And finally, our one-bedroom with two-bath for those who want much more room. All of our senior apartments come with their own kitchenette consisting of a microwave, refrigerator, freezer, sink, and plenty of cabinet space.
Our beautiful senior living community has two floors overlooking the fairways of the Essex County Golf Course, New Jersey’s oldest country club. Music fills the entryway when you enter our community.
Whether it’s to read a good book or visit with family and friends, our common areas are great places where you can put up your feet and relax. We have a library, cafe, country kitchen, game room, “Town Hall Community Room”, private dining room, courtyard with a gazebo, walking paths, and a bistro.
Our goal is to ensure that our residents enjoy each day, and wake up each morning with something to look forward to, and we understand that social engagement is one of the most important components of a quality life. That is why we offer fun-filled days with things to do that fulfill the mind, body, and spirit.
Our residents enjoy a wide variety of daily activities such as morning exercise, word games, socials, happy hour, bingo, arts and crafts, discussion groups, Internet classes, outings within the community, family nights, holiday parties, and much more. As wonderful as the inside and outside of our lovely community is, we also have trips off the premises to diners, shops, the local deli, and much more.
We believe that breakfast, lunch, and dinner are the most important times of the day, not only because of the importance of proper nutrition, but because of the social interaction. We offer a very wide range of meals at each seating, from the “always-available” menu to our featured specials. Our chefs can accommodate most diets as well allowing residents to enjoy their freedom of choice.
Whether you are an Assisted Living or Memory Care resident, you can feel confident that our care approach is centered on you. Our approach at Brookdale West Orange is based on the concept that the person should be the top priority. This approach is evident in our custom care plans, tailored to fit each resident’s needs, and in the way we learn about our seniors’ likes and dislikes in order to provide a truly individualized experience for them.

Sometimes you may need a little extra support during the day, perhaps for bathing, taking medication or getting dressed. We completely understand and our staff can be there for you in the way you need.
With each resident, our aim is to let them live as independently as possible while providing a level of support that promotes a healthy and safe lifestyle. Our staff is incredibly skilled at giving the right balance of respect and support. They go out of their way to provide an exceptional blend of service, care and hospitality.
Attendees get to know each resident individually — their likes, dislikes, hobbies and family stories. So, whether it’s a scented lotion, a unique snack, a favorite recipe or a lifelong interest, we integrate everything we learn to create a truly individualized living experience.
We believe your care plan should be a reflection of your specific and individual needs. At Brookdale West Orange, we provide personalized care plans for each of our residents. We sit down with each senior, listen to their needs, and then we partner with them to find a plan that works for everyone involved. It’s just one way that we put your needs first.
For our Memory Care, we strive to help maintain residents’ abilities and encourage their current skills. From the type of dining we offer to the activities available, we work to engage residents’ mental functions, encourage them to participate in purposeful activities, and involve them in many physical programs. Our goal is to provide opportunities for our seniors to feel a sense of meaning every day.
We are invested in each of our residents and we want to see them be successful. Our staff is on hand daily for our seniors, providing a kind word and warm smile. No matter where a senior is in their life, we believe that everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect, and you’ll see that our staff strives to do that every day.
Our concept has embraced the latest research and innovations in the delivery of quality dementia care. Our teams have cared for many individuals with dementia, as well as for their families.
