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 Biloxi — and throughout Brookdale 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 retsidents who have chosen our retirement community for its active lifestyle.
The Perfect Location
Set on beautifully landscaped grounds with a courtyard and walking trails, we are considered one of the premier assisted living and Alzheimer’s communities along the Gulf Coast of Mississippi. Located close to 1-10 and Cedar Lake rd., our community is conveniently located to Edgewater Mall, The Coliseum and Coast Casinos. We are also just a short drive from the arts communities of Ocean Springs and Bay St. Louis. Several medical facilities are close by, including Memorial Hospital, Biloxi Regional and Garden Park Medical Center.
A Wonderful Selection
Emeritus at Biloxi offers 80 beautiful senior apartments that come in a variety of sizes and floor plans. At Emeritus at Biloxi, we offer a concierge, who can handle all of our residents’ special requests, plus a lovely dining room, Theater Room, Activities Center and Beauty Salon.
We rely on our residents’ own interests and hobbies as we design our community’s activities and programs. Choices in social, cultural, educational, physical and creative activities are all strongly encouraged. Our transportation is offered numerous times every week to enjoy historical attractions and theatrical events in Biloxi, Ocean Springs and Bay St. Louis.
Our residents will enjoy a wonderful lifestyle, all with the security of knowing care is available if they need it. And if you’re still exploring senior living options, Emeritus at Biloxi offers short term and vacation stays in our community, through our respite stay program.
Our Community Lifestyle
A Wonderful Active Lifestyle
As we age, we don’t lose our taste for good food, interesting experiences, family and laughter, or our desire to live in a comfortable, attractive home. After all, these are the things that make us who we are, and keep life vibrant and exciting. Emeritus at Biloxi has its own Life Enrichment Director, whose only job is to find new social, recreational and cultural activities for our residents. Life stories help our Life Enrichment Director understand each resident’s interests and hobbies as a basis for choosing activities. Our community is designed to be a home, warm and inviting to both residents and their family and friends. We feel that if our residents can live well, they can better enjoy their lives.
Join Their Journey provides many one-on-one activities that we do with residents to help promote memory. We also have a wide range of group activities, which helps stimulate residents in a different way by giving them opportunities to socialize. Join Their Journey pays particular attention to making sure all activities are geared to the ability of the residents and their stage of memory loss – and that all residents are able to participate in some form of activity.
Strong, Caring Professional Relationships
We nurture strong relationships with local area hospitals, like Memorial Hospital, Biloxi Regional and Garden Park Medical Center. The area also hosts several medical clinics with a diverse offering of health-care providers and specialties.
Located right on site in our community, we partner with a local rehabilitation provider, which provides physical, occupational and speech therapy. We can also coordinate rehabilitation, skilled nursing care and hospice care as needed.
At Emeritus at Biloxi, we are committed to delivering the highest standards of care and service to our residents and their families. All of our caregivers undergo extensive ongoing training. Their skills and knowledge encompass the aging process, accident prevention, communication techniques, infection control, and how to manage disruptive behaviors. They also attend an intensive two-day training for our memory care program, Join Their Journey. All employees understand the changes and challenges that occur with age, and with memory loss.
Partnering with the Local Neighborhood Community
Not only is “Our Family Committed to Yours,” we also believe “Our Community is Committed to Yours.” Local community projects give us – and our residents – a true sense of purpose and connection. We want to participate in meaningful community service projects, and continue to discover ways to give back to others in our community.
Emeritus at Biloxi has an experienced dining service director on staff who prepares three delicious homemade meals every day, including multiple menu choices for every lunch and dinner.
Lunch and dinner meals offer a salad and soup to start, followed by a main entrée and dessert. Meals are served on fine china in a restaurant-style atmosphere so that residents can enjoy conversation with their company at their table while enjoying an exceptional culinary experience.
Our memory care neighborhood hosts its own dining room. Three meals and three snacks are provided daily. This allows us to provide smaller portions throughout the day to combat weight loss problems – a key issue for residents, who because of their memory loss, often feel fuller faster, get distracted more frequently and tend to walk and wander a lot. Our menu can accommodate a wide variety of dietary choices and needs including soft and pureed.
