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 Henderson – and throughout Brookdale Senior Living communities has shared since 1996, 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

Set on seven acres of beautifully landscaped grounds with two courtyards and lovely gardens, Emeritus at Henderson is considered one of the premier assisted living and Alzheimer’s communities in Eastern Texas. Conveniently located near Historical Downtown Henderson as well as Highways 64, 259 and 79, our community offers 57 apartments on one floor for easy access. Here our residents — in many cases, with their pets — enjoy retirement living. Yet, should you need a helping hand from our warm and caring staff, we also offer complete assisted living services, tailor-made to your needs. We’ve designed our services to focus on wellness, helping you maintain or improve your health, so you can live as independently as possible.

A Wonderful Selection

With its family-friendly atmosphere, Emeritus at Henderson feels like home the moment you walk through the doors. Our common areas include two spacious living rooms with fireplaces, a beautiful, serene aquarium, grand piano, and large-screen TV; lovely dining room; library; barber/beauty shop; and activity room. The assisted living community also has two atriums – one on each side of the building – with lovely skylights, tables and chairs perfect for visiting with family and friends, putting jigsaw puzzles together or playing a game of cards or dominoes.

Emeritus at Henderson offers a total of 57 senior apartments, all with spacious floor plans. Our assisted living apartments include a refrigerator, microwave, full bath with walk-in handicapped-accessible shower, wall-to-wall carpeting and large windows with blinds. Some of our apartments have French doors that open onto a patio. All utilities except telephone are included. In addition, each senior apartment is individually climate-controlled and pets up to 25 pounds are welcome at our community!

Our Memory Care Neighborhood offers 17 apartments set up just like our assisted living community, with the exception of the kitchenette. We do offer the option of a Friendship Suite, in which two residents share accommodations; however, that decision is completely up to the resident and their families. The spacious living room provides natural sunlight from the skylight and includes a fireplace and piano which makes it the perfect setting for some of our activities, socials, and entertainment. Our beautiful secured courtyard and two large patios enable residents to easily enjoy many outdoor activities as well.

Strong, Caring Professional Relationships

Emeritus at Henderson is dedicated to maintaining professional relationships with nearby physicians, as well as hospice agencies, home health agencies and inpatient/outpatient rehabilitation services. When residents require physical, occupational or speech therapy, we will provide referrals, but of course, it’s always up to the resident and family to decide who they’d like to work with.

Therapists can provide services right on site, in the convenience of the resident’s home. When any third-party caregiver comes into our community, their visit is recorded in the resident’s chart, so that our nursing staff is always kept up to date on their resident’s status. These relationships allow for aging in place and often prevent the need to relocate to a nursing home which allows you and your loved one to remain in a familiar home-like environment.

Our Staff

“Our family” will soon be “your family” as together we care for those we love. Emeritus at Henderson takes tremendous pride in the longevity and tenure of its staff. Our community is fortunate to have many tenured staff members, ranging from four to 12 years, who are committed to making the difference for the seniors we serve. At Brookdale Senior Living, our staff truly lives our promise, “Our Family Is Committed To Yours.”

Partnering with the Local Neighborhood Community

Emeritus at Henderson partners with six local churches of different denominations who alternate Sunday mornings/afternoons and Wednesday nights to bring Sunday School and Church directly to our residents. In addition, we partner with our Elementary and Preschools and invite children to participate in intergenerational activities with our residents for special occasions and holidays. Our staff and residents also support various organizations such as the Alzheimer’s Association, Relay for Life, Support Our Troops, and others, by participating in a variety of different projects throughout the year.

Fine Dining

At Emeritus at Henderson, we serve three delicious homemade meals daily in our beautiful and relaxing dining room, designed for our residents to enjoy conversation and a satisfying culinary affair. At our community, we believe in choices and offer you a number of entrée selections at all meals, many of which are made up of favorite local recipes. We also have large holiday meals, summer cookouts and family dinners for residents and families to enjoy.
