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 Meadowlands Terrace has shared since 1995, when our senior independent living 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 residents who have chosen our retirement community for its active lifestyle.
Waco Senior Living
Meadowlands Terrace is eleven wooded acres conveniently located with the beautiful banks of the Brazos River and a large variety of wildlife in our back yard. We are nestled in these serene surroundings, yet situated 10 minutes or less from many stores, shops and restaurants, offering the best of both worlds.
A Wonderful Selection
We offer choices of senior apartments including studios, 1-bedrooms, 2-bedrooms and companion style living if desired. We proudly nurture a wonderful collaborative relationship with local hospitals, independent living and skilled nursing facilities, home health, hospice and sitter agencies.
Our serene community has 70 lovely senior apartments. Whether dining in our elegant dining room with friends, or sitting at one of our pergolas on the beautiful banks of the Brazos River watching the wildlife, our residents and their loved ones have the opportunity to get to know one another and enjoy each other’s company. We also offer a wide range of activities each month, home cooked meals, many safety features, and off-site excursions. We celebrate life to its fullest each and every day at Meadowlands Terrace, where the “fun” never sets as we take care of the daily chores and minor hassles in life.
We celebrate the fact that many of our staff as well as our residents are experiencing years of tenure with Meadowlands, which attests to the fact that we live our important philosophies, values and company promise, “Our Family is Committed to Yours.” We have experienced 7 consecutive deficiency-free state surveys as well as our Alzheimer’s state certified memory care neighborhood.
Brookdale Senior Living has other communities near Waco, including Dallas, Texas assisted living and retirement communities and Bedford, Texas assisted living and retirement communities.
Our Community Lifestyle
A Wonderful Active Lifestyle
At Meadowlands Terrace we have created the most personalized interaction with our residents, not only in their care and fee schedules, but in their activities as well. We provide individual choices in social, physical, mental, spiritual, cultural and creative outlets.
Both visitors and residents enjoy our close proximity to local attractions such as Baylor University events, the Dr. Pepper museum, the Carlene Bright’s arboretum, the Cameron Park Zoo, Miss Nellie’s Pretty Place, the Texas Ranger hall of fame, the sports hall of fame, the Waco suspension bridge, and the newly opened Waco mammoth site. Also, we hold holiday events at every opportunity, which are open to professionals, prospective residents, current residents, employees and all their families.
Partnering with the Local Community
At Meadowlands Terrace, host a variety of events to benefit both our residents and our area professionals as well. We continuously provide support groups of various types, host holiday parties for which our residents invite their family and friends, and participate in such things as bean bag baseball tournaments and volleyball tournaments with surrounding retirement communities housing seniors. Furthermore, we partner with other agencies who provide services for seniors by offering varied CEU-credit luncheons, networking luncheons, seminars and informational discussions, and in-house training in our beautiful continuing care retirement community.
We are proud to say that we are active in many ways within the greater community and host a large variety of public events monthly.
We provide 3 hot meals daily served restaurant-style in our luxurious dining room with entree and dessert choices available for variety, as well as nutritious snacks throughout the day.
At Emeritus at Meadowlands Terrace, we help seniors meet their financial needs by partnering with several senior financial solution providers and by developing special programs.
