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.
A 5 Star Skilled Nursing Rating
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), a branch of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, maintains a Five-Star Quality Rating System to help consumers compare skilled nursing facilities. This rating system is based on health inspections, staffing, and quality measures. We are proud to say our overall rating at Emeritus at Camarillo is 5 Stars. More information can be found through the following the link http://www.medicare.gov/nursinghomecompare/search.html
Emeritus at Camarillo is mentioned among the Best Nursing Homes of U.S.News & World Rankings for 2014.
This is the promise that the staff at Emeritus at Camarillo – and throughout Brookdale Senior Living communities – has shared since 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 retirees who have chosen our retirement community for its active lifestyle.

Our Community Lifestyle
A Wonderful Active Lifestyle
Emeritus at Camarillo life enrichment directors plan a variety of exciting and educational events throughout the year, ranging from brain health fairs to Fourth of July barbecues to Thanksgiving feasts. The goal is to keep our residents socially engaged and provide their families the opportunity to learn and celebrate with them.
The primary goal of our life enrichment staff is to plan activities that are fun for residents, while also promoting brain health. Brookdale Senior Living retirement activities incorporate all the chief components of brain health, including the nutritional, social, spiritual, physical and intellectual aspects of mental well-being. The result is a wide variety of stimulating programs for our residents, include Walking Club, Game Club, Tai Chi, Yoga, dance classes, guest speakers and excursions to cultural events, just to name a few.
We have witnessed first-hand the wide range of physical and emotional benefits that pets have provided for our residents. Not only do they offer companionship, they can also lower the risk for heart disease, and help ease any feelings of stress, depression or loneliness.
Three meals a day are served in our elegant dining rooms. We offer a wide variety of entrées, deserts, a la carte selections, and a tasty soup of the day. All of our dining selections fall under the supervision of our dietician and Dining Services Director. We can accommodate special diets, guests and offer a Private Dining Room for special occasions. Our selections celebrate the seasons and holidays, often accompanied by live entertainment.
