The Allendale Community for Senior Living and Rehabilitation Center – Caring for Seniors for Almost Half A Century

The Allendale Community for Senior Living and Rehabilitation Center, set on 12 lovely suburban acres within Bergen County is one of Northern New Jersey’s premier continuum-of-care senior living and healthcare campuses.

“This year, 2015, marks 48 years of compassionate care that Allendale has been providing to seniors in Bergen County. We have built our reputation, and our facility, in stages over the years to provide the best quality of care at every level of service that we provide. We pride ourselves on the newest technologies and equipment as well as a highly trained team of professionals to make the Allendale Community for Senior Living and Rehabilitation Center the premier facility of its kind in the area,” says Dr. Timothy Giancarlo, President and CEO of Allendale.

To further enhance that status, Allendale will launch in January 2015 a new, state-of-the-art, sub-acute rehabilitation center. The Allendale Community also has announced its new partnership with Kessler.Core, part of the world-renowned Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation. Kessler.Core, which employs the most skilled and experienced therapists in the world, will provide a full range of on-site rehabilitation services at The Allendale Community.

The Allendale Community Rehabilitation Center will be available to clients 18 and older, offering 60 beds, new treatment modalities and the latest physical therapy equipment available. Its dedicated team of multi-disciplinary medical professionals includes physiatrists, therapists, nurses, social workers and patient care specialists. The team works synergistically to help clients return home faster following an injury, medical event, surgery or illness, and helps tailor a plan for the client’s home environment to help minimize any risk of further injury.

“We are delighted to move forward with this brand new rehabilitation center, and integrate its services with our nursing home, long term care and memory care divisions. Together I believe we can provide top notch care to Allendale and the surrounding communities, and serve as a leader in the field,” adds Dr. Giancarlo.

History/Overview: The Allendale Community for Senior Living and Rehabilitation Center
Family owned and physician operated, The Allendale Community incorporates four distinctly separate, but fully integrated levels of care in one location. The four levels of care were developed in stages starting in 1967, when The Allendale Community for Senior Living and Rehabilitation Center first pioneered modern-day elder care. Its four levels of senior care service include:

The Atrium Assisted Living –Originally built in 1989, this independent senior living community became a certified assisted living/comprehensive personal care home in 2011. The Atrium accepts long-term care patients who may participate in activities, trips and programs. Individualized help with daily tasks is also offered.

The Allendale Nursing Home - Established as the flagship facility of the senior campus, today the home is a fully licensed healthcare facility offering 24-hour skilled nursing, long-term and post-acute care services. It also provides social, recreational and therapeutic programs to maximize residents’ capabilities and enhance daily living. The home has been renovated in stages to keep pace with the latest treatment technologies and lifestyle demands required by today’s seniors.

Carlton Court – Carlton Court is the memory care facility that first opened in 1972 as an assisted living residence. In 2010, the community expanded its memory care services, creating an updated environment to ensure added safety and security, along with diverse therapeutic and enrichment programs designed specifically for people with dementia-related conditions.

The Allendale Community for Senior Living and Rehabilitation Center - Originally named The Rehabilitation Center at the Allendale Community, this facility opened in 2006 to bridge the gap between acute hospital care and a client’s return home. Preparations are currently underway for a newly modernized, leading edge sub-acute rehabilitation center for ages 18 and up.

Dr. Timothy Giancarlo serves as the President and CEO of The Allendale Community for Senior Living and Rehabilitation Center. He represents the organization’s second generation of leadership, succeeding his father, Dr. Hector R. Giancarlo, who stepped down as president after nearly 50 years at Allendale’s helm.

As a long-standing member of the Allendale Chamber of Commerce, we support all of the organization’s efforts, and are very proud to be the Diamond Sponsor of the Allendale Festival Day & Car Show. This annual community event draws thousands of people for a day of entertainment, kiddie rides, a petting zoo, arts and crafts, vendors, a farmers’ market, great food and a Pet Parade. The Allendale Community’s staff members take an active role by serving on the event’s entertainment committee, and bringing free children’s games, raffles, prizes and plenty of good will to The Allendale Community tent. We take great pride in calling the borough of Allendale our home, and look forward to many years of service to the Allendale Chamber of Commerce.
