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 Lakeland- and throughout Brookdale Senior Living communities- has shared since our community first opened its doors three decades ago. 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
Emeritus at Lakeland is within walking distance to Merchants Stadium, which is the home of the Detroit Tigers spring practice. Emeritus at Lakeland is nestled between businesses and residences, giving us a rural, warm feeling. The property is within a mile from Lakeland Regional Hospital and Watson Clinic North. Immediately when walking through the doors at Emeritus at Lakeland, you get that warm, comfortable feeling of being at home. Whether it is the warm smell of the cookies baking in the oven or popcorn popping, you can’t help but feel like you are in your own kitchen.
We offer 68 senior apartments on one level for easy access in meeting the needs of both assisted living and memory care resident. Whether dining with friends and family in the dining room, relaxing with a good book or doing a puzzle in the activity room, having the opportunity to garden in the courtyard using your green thumb, residents have the opportunity to get to know one another and enjoy each other’s company.
Strong, Caring Professional Relationships
We continue to build strong relationships with area hospitals, skilled nursing communities, and rehabilitation centers such as Lakeland Regional Hospital, Wedgewood, Valencia Hills, and Palm Terrance, located directly next door to our community.
Emeritus at Lakeland management and staff are comprised of professionals that have tenure as long as 19 years. Emeritus at Lakeland has been very selective when choosing who will make up this team to serve its residents; only those with compassion and longevity as a goal are accepted into this family. We can truly say that our family is committed to yours, by practicing our six program signatures: wellness, dining experiences, supportive environment, life enrichment, family partnerships and team development.

Our Community Lifestyle
A Wonderful Active Lifestyle
At Emeritus at Lakeland, we have a wide variety of activities for our residents. With this in mind we individualize activities to meet the needs of our assisted living and the memory care residents. Residents enjoy a variety of live entertainment, happy hour, games for large and small groups, and going to out to eat, shopping and mystery rides.
At Emeritus at Lakeland, we offer monthly theme meals where the resident council helps coordinate the event with our life enrichment director. The residents look forward to the senior prom and resident fashion show that we have on a yearly basis. For our holidays we invite the families to come and enjoy the holiday season with their loved one while we prepare the meals for them.
Partnering with the Local Neighborhood Community
Emeritus at Lakeland partners with our local home health companies to educate our residents about health care issues and insurances. Emeritus at Lakeland is very active with the Polk County Alzheimer’s Association. We offer monthly group meetings for local residents and community family and caregivers. Once a year the staff participates with the Memory Walk to benefit Alzheimer’s.
