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 HillenVale- and throughout Brookdale Senior Living communities – shares. 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 retirees who have chosen our senior community for its active lifestyle.
The Perfect Location
Set on 7 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds with a courtyard, we are considered one of the premier assisted living and Alzheimer’s communities in the Greater Mount Vernon area. Located close to Route 36 and 229, our community offers 90 senior living apartments, all on one level for easy access.
While we are located in a rural area, our retirement community is just around the corner from many local merchants and restaurants, and just one mile from Wolf Run Park. Residents also have access to all that Mt. Vernon has to offer, from the traditions and craftsmanship of the local Amish community to a progressive and artistic culture nurtured by Kenyon College. Knox Community Hospital is less than a mile away.
A Wonderful Selection
Emeritus at HillenVale has been carefully planned to create a comfortable, convenient and secure home for our residents. A unique combination of senior services, amenities, and added conveniences enable our residents the freedom to enjoy all of their favorite pastimes.

Our senior living community is for the discerning individual who is seeking a comfortable, safe, and private residence that also affords the warmth of companionship and the security of 24 hour personal and nursing assistance. We are 90 beautiful senior apartments all located on one level with easy access to all of our beautiful amenities.
Strong, Caring Relationships
We nurture a strong relationship with our local hospital, Knox Community Hospital, and numerous rehabilitations centers such as The Laurels. We provide the use of our chapel to local pastors and various religious groups.
We can truly say HillenVale is “family taking care of family” as many of our staff members either know our residents from their relationships in the community, or actually have family members residing with us. We are proud of the longevity of our staff and can boast of a strong management team as well. Emeritus at HillenVale was ranked number one in our area by the Ohio Department of Health for customer satisfaction 2009.

Partnering with the Community
We have weekly exercise programs open to the greater community as well as our own community Bingo once a month. We host many local community group meetings and supply them with refreshments and meeting areas. Our residents interact with these groups and benefit from the programs as well as the participants from the outside community.
HillenVale is committed to the Mt. Vernon community, participating in a variety of events that help to nurture the spirit of the people of Mt. Vernon and surrounding areas. Many community meetings are held in the beautiful commons area of our senior community.
We serve three homemade delicious meals daily with an evening snack cart delivered right to the resident. Family and friends are always invited to join their loved one for a lovely dinner.
