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 Brighton- and throughout Brookdale senior living communities- has shared since 1989, when Emeritus at Brighton 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 residents who have chosen our retirement community for its active lifestyle.
The Perfect Location
Emeritus at Brighton is nestled between businesses and residences giving us a rural, warm feeling. The property is located only 1/2 mile from the heart of town, making it far enough away to be out of the bustle and noise, yet close enough for convenience. We are located very near two major freeways I-96 and US 23. Emeritus at Brighton is right in the heart of this quaint little town. There are many little shops and boutiques to visit. There are a variety of restaurants and, of course, Brighton’s main attraction, the beautiful Mill Pond. Emeritus at Brighton offers studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom senior apartments. We have several different styles to choose from. Our building is ranch-style so all apartments and amenities are conveniently located on one floor.
Strong, Caring Relationships
We have wonderful relationships with area hospitals, doctors and rehab centers such as University of Michigan and St. Josephs Mercy hospitals, Caretel, Medilodge and Howell Care Center Rehabilitation, and Visiting Physicians. This makes for easy transitions and less worries for our residents and their families.
Emeritus at Brighton’s “ace in the hole” is the longevity of our staff. We have over 1/3 of our employees with 10 to 22 years of service! This creates a feeling of trust and comfort for our residents as it allows lasting relationships between our seniors and our staff.
Our Community Lifestyle
A Wonderful Active Lifestyle
Our activity senior living community offers a wide variety of opportunities to uplift, encourage and strengthen the physical, spiritual and intellectual well being of all of our residents. We offer such things as daily exercise, brain healthy games, church services, and much, much more. At Emeritus at Brighton, each day is filled with laughter and life! We have many activities that not only enrich our residents’ minds but raise their spirits. We also have a new van that our residents use for errands and activities such as “ride about town” and trips to the ice cream parlor!
Partnering with the Community
Emeritus at Brighton holds and sponsors a variety of events in and about our senior living community. We sponsor educational seminars and a host of motivational speakers that enrich the lives of not only our residents but our community.
