The weather could not have been better for the “topping out” ceremony as Brandywine team members celebrate a milestone in construction for the new Brandywine Living at Mahwah under construction at 814 Wyckoff Avenue. This traditional ceremony, originating in Scandinavia, occurs when the last steel beam of the building is put in place. While there is still much construction to be completed, this 96 unit $33 million luxury senior living project, will be Brandywine’s 26th community. It is expected to welcome its first residents in late fall this year. Brandywine, a premier provider of senior living services, including assisted living and memory care, is headquartered in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey and has locations in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, Delaware and Connecticut.

Brenda J. Bacon, President and Chief Executive Officer of Brandywine Senior Living, expressed her excitement on bringing Brandywine’s award-winning services to the Mahwah. Thanking the local township officials and Wohlsen Construction, Bacon described some of the unique features of the 107-resident community, “Brandywine will offer assisted living, memory care and our signature ‘Serenade by Brandywine service. Serenade is our butler-style service that offers luxurious suites, private dining room and room service to name just a few of the amenities. The residents will have many choices. A warm therapy pool, movie theatre, beautifully landscaped courtyards and our extraordinary Escapades…For Life! program to make sure they are also having fun!” She finished her remarks by saying that “We take great pride in assisting families in taking care of their loved ones when they need a little help.”

Brandywine also announced that this community, like its most recently opened location in Voorhees, will be a LEED certified building. LEED is an internationally recognized “green” certification system for buildings designed and built using strategies aimed at improving environmental quality. Also in attendance at the event was Audrey Meyers, President and CEO of Valley Health System. Brandywine and Valley are developing a collaborative relationship to coordinate their services for the benefit of the seniors of Bergen County.
