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 Brookdale Ellington Field, formerly known as Emeritus at Clearlake—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 residents who have chosen our retirement community for its active lifestyle.
The Perfect Location
Emeritus at Clear Lake is conveniently located in the Clear Lake market at Clear Lake City Blvd and Hwy 3 just off I-45 (Gulf Freeway). We are minutes away from Ellington Field; Johnson Space Center, local hospitals, malls and just 15 minutes from Hobby airport. Located on five acres, Emeritus is a two-story building with elevator overlooking Sylvan Rodriguez Park.
We offer assisted living and memory care senior living with a total of 91 studio apartments. Restaurant-style dining is provided with three meals per day seven days a week and snacks available throughout the day. Living areas are located throughout the building for residents to enjoy each other or visits from family members and friends. We offer a library, activity room with a full-time Activity Director, Billiard Room, Sunroom, and Media Room. An massive renovation of the building will be completed January, 2012.
A Wonderful Selection
Our common areas—including our lovely dining room, library and TV room—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 classes and community outings. Retirement living and assisted living doesn’t mean dependence upon others; it means independence. When seniors have the opportunity to meet new people and join in new activities, when they’re served three healthy meals a day, when they’re taken to their medical appointments and provided the daily assistance they need, their level of functioning improves. And when they’re feeling better, they have greater independence and can enjoy life more.
Our friendly, trained, and dedicated 24-hour staff is here to provide assistance, if any, in bathing, dressing, and medications management. Each of our staff members is committed to the health and well-being of each of our residents. Our staff is trained in the art of service to those who do not need nursing care, but need some level of help with daily living activities.

Our Community Lifestyle
A Wonderful Active Lifestyle
With a full-time Activities Director, who has been with Brookdale Ellington Field for over six years, our residents stay busy with a list of daily activities inside and outside the community.Our specially equipped bus and trained drivers and staff take our residents for regular outings throughout the Clear Lake and Houston area along with regular shopping trips, dinner and movies, and lunches.
Regular church services are provided by two area churches, along with mass and communion weekly in our chapel. Emeritus at Clearlake residents and their families are very active in raising money throughout the year for Breast Cancer and The Alzheimer’s Association.
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. We would love to have you and your pets make a Brookdale community your new home!
Our skilled and knowledgeable chefs prepare three healthy, flavorful meals and three snacks a day.They also work closely with our registered dieticians to accommodate residents with a variety of dietary modifications, from low sugar to no salt-added diets.
Our Dining Services Director has been with Brookdale Ellington Field for 11 years providing delicious food for our residents. Our Director is known in the community for mouthwatering homemade biscotti and pies! With restaurant-style dining, our residents have a choice of entrees for each meal and access to snacks, coffee, and other beverages throughout the day.
