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 a simple promise the staff at Emeritus at Cambridge Place Retirement Community – 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 senior living community for its active lifestyle.
The Perfect Location
Emeritus at Cambridge Place has an ideal location in the heart of Great Falls, and surrounded by breathtaking National forests and parks, as well as soaring mountain ranges, lakes and rivers. Because we are close to the intersection of highways 15 and 89, Emeritus at Cambridge Place is easily accessible from every direction – whether its east to Billings, south to Helena, north to Glacier National Park and the Canadian border, or west to lovely Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.
The great Missouri River is just steps away, and its 24-mile River’s Edge Trail is great for exploring and walking. Our bird watchers enjoy the Benton Lake Wildlife Refuge and feeding the Canadian geese at Gibson Park. Emeritus at Cambridge Place residents frequently take advantage of our excursions to a wide array of outdoor recreation areas. Some of the nation’s most beautiful parks are located in our general area and Giant Springs State Park is 15 minutes away from our community, which means you don’t have far to go for incredible sightseeing opportunities. For golfers, there are several local courses to choose from, and for anglers, this area’s extensive waterways offer an abundance of fishing spots.
Great Falls is a place immersed in the traditions of the Old West. For history buffs, the nearby Lewis & Clark National Trail Interpretive Center has interactive exhibits that help you retrace the steps of the famous explorers. Or walk into the past of the Northern Plains at First People’s Buffalo Jump State Park, where Native Americans used to stampede buffalo over cliffs. Montana history and Western art come together beautifully at the C.M. Russell Museum, which displays the work of the world-famous “Cowboy Artist” Charlie Russell. The museum is located one block from Emeritus at Cambridge Place.
