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 Juniper Meadows – 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
Set on 10 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds with an outdoor courtyard, Emeritus at Juniper Meadows offers retirement living and assisted living in a beautiful community that overlooks northern Lewiston hill, the valley and the developing southeast Orchards.
We are located 750 feet above sea level in the Lewis-Clark Valley near the confluence of the Snake and Clearwater Rivers. This is a pleasant area, known for its low crime rate, moderate climate, outdoor recreation, and beautiful scenery — ideal for retirement living!
Our retirement community is situated near Highway 12 and Highway 95, which gives us easy access to all the attractions and amenities the area has to offer. Lewiston is a thriving baseball community, home of the NAIA World Series, hosted by Lewis Clark State College Warriors. The area is also bursting with history.
A Wonderful Selection
Emeritus at Juniper Meadows offers 82 apartments on two floors. We have studio and one-bedroom apartments that suit the needs of individuals and couples alike. Here our residents — in many cases, with their pets — enjoy retirement living. Our community offers a large variety of off-site excursions and onsite activities that are designed to accommodate the individual needs and uniqueness of each resident.
Strong, Caring Professional Relationships
Emeritus at Juniper Meadows is deeply rooted in the health-care system throughout our area. We foster relationships with St. Joseph Regional Medical Center (SJRMC) Foundation, SJRMC Hospice Advisory Board, Tri-State Memorial Hospital Home Health & Hospice, local senior centers and many more. We have developed personal friendships with many local physicians and health-care providers. Our community’s familiarity with extensive medical affiliations provides open-door access to numerous resources and conveniences for our residents.
At Emeritus at Juniper Meadows, we believe our home-like and caring environment is directly related to our skilled and compassionate staff. We recruit and hire employees who have a calling to work with seniors, and that dedication is reflected in our staff and leadership’s impressive longevity at the community. Some of our staff members have been with Juniper Meadows since it opened its doors in 1998.
Our Community Lifestyle
A Wonderful Active Lifestyle
Emeritus at Juniper Meadows has an onsite Life Enrichment Director who works with numerous volunteers in order to provide a full and interesting activity calendar each month. These include Bingo, games, music, Bible study, ceramics class, balance class, exercise class, ice cream socials and more. We often enjoy outings for lunch; scenic tours; museums; and historical points of interest.
Our senior living community education program, called Monthly Medical Forum, is a series of interesting presentations from local specialists on a variety of topics. This program is offered for residents, their families and the public. Emeritus at Juniper Meadows also hosts holiday events throughout the year, such as a Cinco de Mayo party, a festive Christmas celebration, a June barbecue, a Mothers’ Day Tea, and more. And of course, we recognize and celebrate each resident’s and staff member’s birthday.
Partnering with the Local Neighborhood Community
At Emeritus at Juniper Meadows, we are passionate about being involved in our local community. We participate on an annual basis with the Inland Northwest Blood Center to host a neighborhood blood drive. We also organize and support the Alzheimer’s Association at a variety of events throughout the year. We have hosted Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours events, and we support our local senior community centers in both Clarkston and Lewiston.
At Emeritus at Juniper, we serve three meals a day in our restaurant-style dining room which features elegant linens and décor. Mealtime provides a wonderful social time for our residents. At lunch and dinner, we offer two entrée choices and an “always available” menu, which includes a lighter option of fruit and/or salad plate as well as a soup and cold sandwich, if desired. Snacks, including fresh fruit and popcorn, are routinely available.,/p>
Our talented and caring Dietary Services Director finds special ways to celebrate at each opportunity. This includes corned beef and cabbage for St. Patrick’s Day; a special homemade Easter brunch; and list goes on. If we can make it special and memorable… we will!
