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 Dartmouth Village – 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 Dartmouth Village is perfectly located within the South Dartmouth Community. Surrounded by trees and wooded areas, there is a feeling of being a part of the country with the convenience of many services being within an “arm’s reach.” We are located very close to the Dartmouth Mall area (including WalMart, Stop & Shop, Christmas Tree Shop, VF Factory Outlets, Target, and a number of restaurants), Buttonwood Park Zoo, Doctor’s offices (Faunce Corner Road area) and St. Luke’s Hospital. We are just off of Route 6 making it easy to get to and from Highway Rte 195. Plenty of trees, plants and flowers allows Emeritus at Dartmouth Village to also play host to a number of birds and other small wildlife.
A Wonderful Selection
Our community is all on one level for easy access with a variety of Cape Cod cottage style senior apartments that offer a homelike atmosphere to our residents. We have a range of apartment styles and layouts including studio apartments, 1 bedrooms, 1 bedroom deluxes, and companion style apartments. All apartments are cable ready and all apartments have pull cords available in the bedrooms and bathrooms. All of our senior apartments surround an inner courtyard and to top it off, we are a pet friendly community!
Dartmouth Village is very proud of the longevity in our community. Many of our employees have been working in our community over 5 years and many have been here since the community was constructed, including department heads. Our loving and dedicated staff strives to make wonderful relationships throughout the community. Our cottages are staffed with Certified Nurses Aides (24 hours a day/7 days a week), and nurses are staffed for 15 hours, each day.
Our Community Lifestyle
A Wonderful Active Lifestyle
We always have fun and exciting activities offered here at Emeritus at Dartmouth Village. Some activities have included a Fashion Show, Word Search, cooking classes, painting classed, and Ballroom Dancing. We frequently go out on the town to art museums, dinner, local concerts. We also take our residents to their physicians once per week and go shopping twice per week.
Partnering with the Local Neighborhood Community
Emeritus at Dartmouth Village is committed to being an active part in our community. We currently offer space in our community for a Grievance Support Group once per month. Our Life Enrichment Director goes to the Dartmouth Council on Aging every month to conduct an activity. We also have implemented an Alzheimer’s Support Group that will be rolled out in February 2012.
Strong, Caring Professional Relationships
Emeritus at Dartmouth Village has a positive reputation within the community and have established strong professional relationships. We recently joined the Bristol County Estate Planning Association to work with financial advisors and estate planners. We also are members of the Cross Continuum Team at Southcoast Hospital and work closely with local hospitals and skilled nursing facilities.
Emeritus at Dartmouth Village offers family style dining in a warm, intimate environment. Our residents are able to choose from a variety of meal selections and have input into what they would like to see offered through our monthly Food Council Meeting. What makes us different than our competition? We have the ability to accommodate special diets such as a sodium restricted diet, sugar restricted and low fat diets. We are also able to accommodate special diets prescribed by a health care practitioner.
“We’re hoping to develop a reputation,” said Eric Franco, director of dining services for Emeritus at Dartmouth Village — an assisted living community — while he poured dozens of helpings of “white heaven” and “Portuguese gold,” his names for clam chowder and kale soup.
