About Our Community
Lecanto FL Assisted Living
Brookdale Citrus, formerly Emeritus at Barrington Place, is a Lecanto, FL Assisted Living community set on three beautifully landscaped grounds with a courtyard and walking trails. We are located on Highway 486 and close to 491 in the heart of Citrus County. Barrington Place is ideally located in the center of Citrus County. Many county parks are nearby for fishing trips or picnics. The Homossassa Springs Wildlife Park is close by and is a favorite field trip of our residents. Shopping and banking are also convenient to our community.
A Wonderful Selection
Brookdale Citrus is an active retirement community with a real family atmosphere. We pride ourselves with the feeling that you get when you walk in our front door. All of our senior apartments are studios, and can be friendship or private suites. All suites have private bathrooms and great views of our wooded property.
Our community has 79 senior apartments surrounding our great room. They are on one level and all hallways lead to the great room which makes it easy to get around. The great room is adjacent to the country-style dining room for even more convenience. Our residents enjoy visiting before and after meals while chatting about old times. Each day is full of activities that bring smiles and laughter from all our residents. Learn more about Brookdale’s senior living communities here.
Strong, Caring Professional Relationships
We have great working relationships with area hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and rehabilitation centers such as Citrus Memorial, Seven Rivers, Lifecare, Brentwood, Diamond Ridge, Cypress Cove, and Citrus Health and Rehab. Through our professional relationships with key staff within these affiliations, we can continue to be involved in the care of our residents.
Brookdale Citrus is committed to their employees too. The management team is comprised of professionals that have tenures of many years as part of our community. Our families know us and we are thankful to be of service. Our staff shows the compassion and family values we all believe in.
