Allendale Senior Living gets multimillion-dollar renovation designed for new generation of assisted living

New look, resort-style amenities and distinctive programming

An expansive, multimillion-dollar renovation is underway at Allendale Senior Living, bringing a new look and fresh programming to the northern New Jersey continuum-of-care assisted living and health care campus.

The ambitious repositioning follows a rebranding at Allendale Senior Living, formerly the Allendale Community for Mature Living.

Marquis Health Consulting Services, which provides administrative and consulting services to Allendale Senior Living, has partnered with the community’s in-house leadership to develop and implement a large-scale program to modernize the community and take its amenities and services to a new level — one that reflects the evolving preferences of today’s seniors.

“Allendale Senior Living was among the first campuses of its kind in North Jersey, and today remains one of the only continuum-of-care communities in the region,” Lauren Everett, vice president of senior living services for Marquis, said. “Our vision is to offer residents the best of what is trending in assisted living, including upscale residences, resort-style amenities and distinctive lifestyle options.”

Located on 12 acres in a quiet suburban Bergen County neighborhood, the campus at 85 Harreton Road spans 146,000 square feet.

Michael Lebovics of ML Group spearheaded the design transformation of the building’s physical spaces.

“The overall look and feel is very clean and modern, with stone floors, wood and metal accents and a sophisticated mix of textures and colors,” Lebovics said.

Residents are already enjoying a number of completed campus improvements, including the fully renovated lobby and main dining room.

“The corridors reflect a temporary refresh and will be renovated following the reconfiguration and expansion of some the apartments,” Everett said.

She noted that work is almost finished on the residences, which have upgraded bathrooms, kitchenettes, flooring and lighting.

New features will include two lounges and a bar/bistro area on the second floor, as well as a private dining room, salon and makers’ room. The community’s movie theater will also get a complete makeover, as will the outdoor courtyards and landscaping.

In addition, Allendale’s Memory Care neighborhood has been completely reimagined, relocating closer to the main Assisted Living. It will feature a secure courtyard, dining room, activity room and lounge space.
