Brendenwood, Voorhees

Brendenwood is a senior retirement community that provides independent living, assisted living, and supportive services for seniors. It is run by Brookdale Senior Living, which operates more than 550 similar facilities across the country, and one of six in South Jersey.

Brendenwood is located at 1 Brendenwood Drive in Voorhees behind Avian Plaza (where you can find Wawa and Montagnaro's) on Evesham Road. It is just a few blocks from Route 73. The facilities are two stories with elevator access and provide a full range of services for residents, including three meals every day, entertainment such as games and performers, exercise activities, in-house nurses, a doctor, outdoor seating areas, and more. Residents furnish the apartments themselves to feel most comfortable, ans some residents still have cars and are able to go out as needed.

The facility serves seniors of varying conditions, ranging from active, independent adults, to those who need a little more attention for assisted living (such as help with doing laundry, regular nursing care, etc.). They offer apartments of varying size, including studio style apartments or apartments for couples. The decor of the building and apartments is classy and everything is well maintained. The staff is quite friendly and helpful. And of course, as a resident, the cost is not exactly "cheap," but is certainly a good place to live during retirement years considering all of the amenities. Seniors looking for assisted or independent living in South Jersey should give Brendenwood a look.
