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 Chestnut Hill – and throughout Brookdale Senior Living communities – has shared since 1988, when our community first opened its doors. It’s a simple 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 Chestnut Hill is on 10 acres of wooded land surrounded by a walking path and residential neighborhoods. Close by are New Albany and Gahanna shops and business for the convenience of residents and their families. Emeritus at Chestnut Hill is one of the premier retirement communities in Ohio and it’s accessible to all the events and attractions available in Columbus Ohio. The community is close to Easton Town Center, Blendon Woods State park, and many shops and restaurants. It is also very close to New Albany, Gahanna, and Westerville so residents can participate in many local events and activities.
A Wonderful Selection
Emeritus at Chestnut Hill offers three senior apartment styles to meet your needs and preferences. There are two studio floor plans and a one bedroom style. All rooms have a kitchenette, private bathroom, and picture window. Residents can choose a favorite color to have the room painted and personalize the apartment as they wish.
As a one story retirement community we don’t have to worry about stairs and elevators. We have a unique floor plan of central common areas and a wellness center arrounded by residents’ apartments. Because of our floor plan we have plenty of space for gatherings, outdoor areas (patio, walking path, and courtyard) and various activities to be going on at the same time. Our spacious dining room allows residents to navigate easily. The private dining room with kitchen in available for families to use free of charge. Residents can enjoy all of these benefits without the worry of chores like laundry and housekeeping, or preparing meals.
Strong, Caring Professional Relationships

We have a medical director, podiatrist, and therapy services that work with residents on site as well as transportation services for any off site medical appointments.
Emeritus at Chestnut Hill is committed to hiring and retaining an excellent staff including nurses, residents’ assistants, dining staff, housekeepers, and other support and management staff.
