109th Anniversary of the 1915 Armenian Genocide

On 4/24/24, the Board of Directors members, Friends of the Armenian Home (FAH), advisors, and the Administrator of the Armenian Nursing & Rehabilitation Center will gather at the facility’s memorial to commemorate the 109th anniversary of the 1915 Armenian Genocide.

The memorial will be decorated with a wreath and flowers, and the 23rd Psalm will be recited.

The members will then join the numerous, associated Armenian activities planned all day throughout Bergen County.

Dear Advisory Committees, Friends, and Members of Our Local Communities:

We are writing to you with good news and hope all is well with you and yours!

As you are aware, the New York Armenian Home, Inc. (New York Home) and the Armenian Nursing & Rehabilitation Center (ANRC) entered into an Affiliation Agreement on March 28, 2019. The purpose of the Affiliation Agreement is to create a structure through which the New York Home and ANRC can work together to ensure the development of a new facility focused on our senior Armenian population. By helping those in need, our respective organizations carry out their missions and further the charitable purposes. Despite setbacks caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic, we have made great progress, and are now very close to taking the next steps toward our joint venture!

As you are also likely aware, prior to proceeding with our plans the New York Home needed to obtain all the required approvals necessary to release their funds from escrow. With respect to this issue, we are excited to announce that the New York Home has successfully secured the release of all escrowed funds! In additional news related to the site in Emerson, although the closure of ANRC was anticipated to occur at some point prior to completion of the new development, its recent closure was unfortunately accelerated by the effects of financial strains caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic. However, we are happy to report that all residents were safely and appropriately transitioned, and further, virtually all ANRC employees were offered subsequent employment prior to closing-no small feat!

The New York Home and ANRC are now fully focused and engaged in moving forward with the actions necessary to further our joint development at 70 Main Street. It has been an arduous journey for our collective community, and although the COVID-19 Pandemic created challenges and changes to our vision, the end is in sight and development planning is underway!

As additional progress is made, further updates will be provided. In the interim, rest assured that our organizations are working diligently to bring about the development of a new facility, to fulfill our collective missions, and to support senior citizens and the needy in our communities. We thank you for your past, current, and ongoing support!

About Us

Armenian memorial to the Christians that were killed in the early 1900's.

The Armenian Nursing and Rehabilitation Center (ANRC) is a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) IRS determined charity, and health care organization located in the United States of America with a tradition of providing health and wellness services for the elderly in Bergen County, New Jersey. We provide private and semi-private rooms with caring and capable staff who are dedicated to the mental, the physical and emotional well-being of each resident we serve.

Our 86-bed center delivers a kaleidoscope of care and services to nurture the needs of our residents and their families. With 80 years of service, we recognize that there’s more to long-term care than strictly providing individualized plans for healthcare and living arrangements. We have mastered this concept and pride ourselves in being the home away from home for our residents. Our cozy 86-bed center has a renovated rehabilitation gym, elegant dining room with a wide selection of international cuisine along with a vibrant recreational room with daily physical and cognitive activities. Schedule a tour with us today and see what makes us the next best thing to home.


Our center is designed, operated, staffed, and licensed to provide sub-acute and long-term healthcare assistance to our residents. Our center accommodates residents who require clinically complex or post-acute care, including tracheostomies, chest and feeding tubes, wound-care services, and residents who require long-term, respite and hospice care. ANRC’s medical director is a certified, palliative care gerontologist.

ANRC offers a variety of activities to meet the physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs of our residents. Activity staff members lead physical activities to promote residents strength and mobility as well as cognitively challenging programs to exercise the mind. Residents also enjoy social events with musical entertainment, groups that promote creativity, a variety of religious services and discussions that encourage reminiscing. Residents are motivated to participate at their highest level to encourage personal satisfaction and promote continued independence.
