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 Emerald Hills- and throughout Brookdale Senior Living communities- has shared since 1998, 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
Emerald Hills is located in the beautiful and historic town of Auburn. Close to Highway 49 and 80 at the base of the Sierra foothills. We are conveniently located near shopping, doctor’s offices, Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital and skilled nursing facilities for rehabilitation if ever needed.
Set in foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Downtown Auburn is filled with unique shops and quaint restaurants. Lake Tahoe is just up highway 80. We enjoy all four seasons, but the warm summer nights are the best!
A Wonderful Selection
Emerald Hills feels like home the moment you walk through the doors. We are located at the end of a street so you only hear the sound of nature and not the hustle and bustle of city traffic.Our common areas including our lovely dining room, TV room and library, give the residents and their loved ones the opportunity to get to know one another. We have 89 senior apartments on three levels, each with offering studios as well as one- and two- bedroom senior apartments. Residents can decorate and fill their apartments with all of their cherished belongings that they have collected over their lifetime to make it home.
Our Community Lifestyle
Alzheimer’s, Dementia and Memory Care Services
At Emerald Hills, we offer a special memory care neighborhood for those residents with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia. Emerald City’s program is called “Join Their Journey.” Our goal is to make our residents feel safe, successful and needed with a sense of belonging. Our staff is trained to be pro-activity directors. Residents are treated with the dignity and respect they deserve.
Specialized Dementia-Related Activities
We treat our memory care residents with care and understanding. Because residents often have communication deficits we rely heavily on behavioral non-verbal cues that tell us what residents need and want. The activity calendar is filled with life enrichment activities. The residents join the assisted living residents for parties, entertainment and social events. Additionally they are treated to country drives around town and occasional lunches at local restaurants.
Join Their Journey – Our Unique Approach for Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care
Our community also offers an innovative memory care program, Join Their Journey®, for seniors affected by Alzheimer’s or dementia. Because your family’s experience will be unlike any other, our goal is to get to know you and your loved one, so that we can offer support and solutions for your individual situation. We “join the journey” of your loved one by recognizing individuality, encouraging choices and allowing residents the dignity to live in a secure, personalized and familiar setting that feels comfortable for them.
