"We have promised ourselves that we shall always treat our residents as we would our own loved ones. Nothing less than our best will do."
This is a simple promise that the staff at Emeritus at White Chapel— and throughout Emeritus Senior Living communities — has shared since 1999, when our community first opened its doors. It's a simple promise to be compassionate and kind, understanding and respectful — a promise to become extended family to the seniors entrusted in our care and to our retirees who have chosen our community for its active lifestyle.
Set on beautifully landscaped grounds with a courtyard, Emeritus at White Chapel is considered one of Delaware's premier assisted living and Alzheimer's communities. Conveniently accessible to I-95 and Highway 896, our community offers 100 apartments on three floors. Here our residents — in many cases, with their pets — enjoy retirement living. Yet should you need a helping hand from our warm and caring staff, we also offer complete assisted living services, tailor-made to your needs. Our services focus on wellness to help you maintain your health, so you can live as independently as possible.
Our community also offers an innovative memory care program, Join Their Journey®, for seniors affected by Alzheimer's or dementia. Because your family's experience will be unlike any other, our goal is to get to know you and your loved one, so that we can offer support and solutions for your individual situation. We "join the journey" of your loved one by recognizing individuality, encouraging choices and allowing residents the dignity to live in a secure, personalized and familiar setting that feels comfortable for them.
Our common areas — including our lovely dining room, TV room, library and activities center — give residents and their loved ones the opportunity to get to know one another. We also offer a wide range of activities each month, including exercise classes and community outings. In addition, we have a partnership with the adjoining Newark Senior Center and Day Center, a new senior center that provides a therapeutic and caring environment for residents who need a more structured environment during the day. While Emeritus at White Chapel is located in a rural area, we are close to the College Square Shopping Center. Emeritus at White Chapel is also close to Christiana Hospital and a nursing home rehabilitation facility if ever needed.
