Family owned and physician operated for over 50 years, Allendale was founded in 1967 by Hector R. Giancarlo, MD, FACS, a surgeon and pioneer in the field of ear, nose and throat. Dr. Giancarlo strongly believed based on his personal and professional conviction that life can and should be preserved and enjoyed at any age. He introduced the concept of a single, continuum-of-care senior lifestyle campus and became one of the original architects of the ‘aging in place’ theory. The resident community he created serves individuals’ changing wants and needs, supporting their independence with exceptional medical care.
Deeply rooted in the local community, Allendale has forged strong partnerships with area hospitals, including Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, Holy Name Medical Center in Teaneck, Hackensack University Medical Center, and Good Samaritan Hospital in Suffern, N.Y. and New York Presbyterian Hospital in New York, NY.
Today, under new ownership, we are proud to build upon Allendale’s outstanding legacy of care. Our community offers a robust rehabilitation center and senior living residence with a full continuum of age-in-place care.
