About Our Community
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 the promise that the staff at Emeritus at Bakersfield- and throughout Brookdale Senior Living communities- has shared since Emeritus at Bakersfield 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.

As part of giving the best care services to our residents Brookdale has partnerships with many local healthcare and professional agencies in the departments of: Home Health Care, Hospice Care, Physical Therapy, Veterans Benefits and our local/national Alzheimer’s Association.
Emeritus at Bakersfield offers three restaurant style meals daily. On occasion we offer Holiday Themed meals and special family nights for residents to have their loved ones guests attend. Part of our Brookdale standard is that we offer a special diet selection such as diabetic and low sodium meals.
