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 Lake Pointe—and throughout Brookdale Senior Living communities—has shared since 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 memory care community for its active lifestyle.

A Wonderful Selection
Emeritus at Lake Pointe provides a home-like environment which is easily noticed because of our smaller community. With a smaller community, our staff is able to be more personable with the residents. Our residents are also able to make stronger friendships because our community is small and the residents are able to be closer together during activity or meal time.
Emeritus at Lake Pointe is a small community with 34 units which offers a home like setting. Every room has a personal bathroom and living area. We provide personal pendants for the residents to use in the event of an emergency but also as a hospitality convenience. For safety purposes, there are pull cords provided in the bathrooms that also act as emergency or assistance alerts.
Strong, Caring Professional Relationships
Emeritus at Lake Pointe is very well known in our small town. Most of the doctors in our area visit our community on a regular basis to either check on a resident or just to have lunch with us. We have an excellent relationship with the local hospitals and a working relationship with the nursing homes in our areas. If a resident of ours needs rehab or a stay in the hospital, we are right there with them; visiting them and following up on their care and needs. The local home health agencies and Hospice organizations work with us hand in hand to keep our residents and their families happy, healthy and comfortable.
