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 Cape Cod; 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 residents who have chosen our retirement community for its active lifestyle.
The Perfect Location
Nestled among towering trees on four acres of beautifully landscaped grounds with an outdoor courtyard, lovely gardens and walking trails, Emeritus at Cape Cod is considered one of the premier retirement communities in Massachusetts. Located in the city of Hyannis on Cape Cod, our retirement community offers 80 senior apartments on two floors. Here our residents, in many cases with their pets, enjoy life in this beautiful coastal community. Yet should you need a helping hand from our warm and caring staff, we also offer complete assisted living services, tailor-made to your needs. Our services focus on wellness to help you maintain your health, so you can live as independently as possible.
Our community is 5 minutes from the Cape Cod Mall, Cape Cod Hospital and the hub of many of Cape Cod’s best physicians. Our community is also just down the road from the Barnstable Municipal Airport and Lewis Bay, the harbor gateway to beautiful Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard.
A Wonderful Selection
Our assisted living and memory care community offers a range of apartment styles and layouts including shared suites, studios, one bedroom and two bedroom units. All assisted living apartments come cable and internet ready and include kitchenettes and spacious bathrooms with walk-in showers with built in seat. Residents are continually comfortable with individually controlled thermostats. You will find our community to be luxuriously grand with touches of Cape Cod casual elegance.
Our cozy community rooms — including our lovely dining room, TV room and library with warm wood detailing — give residents and their loved ones the opportunity to get to know one another. We also offer a wide range of activities each month, including exercise programs and off-site excursions. The ideal retirement escape, Emeritus at Cape Cod is centrally located to all that Hyannis has to offer — wonderful Craigville, Kalmus, Dawes and Veterans beaches; the Cape Cod Mall; local attractions and museums; and many restaurants. Cape Cod Hospital and a nursing home rehabilitation facility, if ever needed, are also right here in the neighborhood.
Staff longevity is something we take pride in at our community and is a direct result of practicing Brookdale’s seven core family values. Many staff members have been with us for upwards of five years and, in fact, several senior staff members have been employed since the doors opened over 13 years ago!
Our Community Lifestyle
A Wonderful Active Lifestyle
There is always something going on at Emeritus at Cape Cod. Social and cultural activities abound! Favorites include concerts, painting classes, crafting, live drama and group games like Jeopardy and Word on Word. Watch us load the bus for trips to experience all that Cape Cod has to offer including beaches, restaurants and the Cape Cod Symphony. Our Life Enrichment Director has over 15 years of experience and she keeps our residents active and on the move!
Partnering with the Local Neighborhood Community
Our assisted living and memory care community is committed to participating in and supporting our larger Cape Cod community. Each spring we raise money for the Alzheimer’s Association and take part in the Miles of Memories walk. Our residents have an ongoing partnership with the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and each December residents and staff join together to buy clothes and toys for needy children through the Salvation Army’s “Dress a Live Doll” campaign. You will find, in our lobby, a daily effort to contribute to the Cape Cod Needy Fund by asking for folks’ “Loose Change for Charity.” At the end of the year all the coins are totaled up and donated to this important cause.
The natural instinct to ensure we improve quality of life by serving a superior and varied menu comprised of the freshest ingredients. Emeritus at Cape Cod dining room servers add to the enjoyment of meals as they are trained to be efficient, professional, and most importantly, anticipatory of residents’ needs. Meals are a large part of a resident’s day, and we strive to make each day special in more ways than one. Stop by for lunch sometime and see what we are all about!
