About Our Community
Auburn, CA Assisted Living
Brookdale Auburn, formerly Emeritus at Emerald Hills, is an Auburn, CA assisted living and Alzheimer’s care community for seniors. Located in the beautiful and historic town of Auburn, we are 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 the 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
Brookdale Auburn 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 include our lovely dining room, TV room and library; giving the residents and their loved ones the opportunity to get to know one another. We have 89 senior apartments on three levels, each with studios as well as one and two-bedroom senior apartments. Residents can decorate and fill their apartments with all of the cherished belongings that they have collected over their lifetime to make it home.
Our Community Lifestyle
Alzheimer’s, Dementia and Memory Care Services
At Brookdale Auburn, we offer Brookdale’s Clare Bridge Memory Care memory care program, which features a special neighborhood for those residents with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia. Our community features peaceful surroundings and a home-like setting designed to re-create the environments people have enjoyed throughout their lives. Interior spaces are scaled and decorated like those of a private home and enclosed walking areas give residents the opportunity to safely explore their surroundings.
Specialized Dementia-Related Activities
We treat our memory care residents with care and understanding. Because residents often have communication difficulties, we rely heavily on behavioral, non-verbal cues that tell us what residents need and want. The activity calendar is filled with life-enriching 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.
