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 Melbourne – 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
Emeritus at Melbourne is set on beautifully landscaped grounds with a courtyard and lovely gardens and is considered one of the premier retirement communities in the Melbourne area. We are conveniently located in an urban area of town near a theatre, Melbourne Square Mall, hotels, doctors, Erma Nixon Park, Holmes Regional Medical Center and many rehabilitation facilities, if ever needed.
A Wonderful Selection
At Emeritus at Melbourne, our property has many oak trees that are over 100 years old. They provide an abundance of shade and are beautiful to admire as you walk our landscaped courtyards. Emeritus at Melbourne makes a simple promise, to be compassionate and kind, understanding and respectful. We promise to become extended family to our residents and their families. We offer three different styles of senior apartments: private studio, suites and friendship studio.
Our small, homey community has 64 senior apartments all on one level for easy access to our residents–no worries of tumbles down staircases, difficulty maneuvering around in an elevator or confusing floor plans. Whether dining with friends in the dining room, relaxing with a good book in the library, kicking back in the TV room, gazing at the stars under the gazebo or strolling with friends along the walking paths in the courtyard, it give residents and their loved ones 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, and off-site excursions. Each day at Emeritus at Melbourne is about living life to the fullest and letting us take care of all the mundane daily chores.
Strong, Caring Professional Relationships
We nurture strong relationships with area hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and rehabilitation centers such as Holmes Regional Medical Center, Wuestoff Medical Center Life Care Center Rehabilitation, HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital, Melbourne Terrace Rehabilitation any many more. Through the communications and relationships that we share with key staff within these affiliations, we provide seamless continuum of care for our residents.
Emeritus at Melbourne boats the longevity of our staff. The management team is comprised of professionals with tenures as long at 12 years from the community opening. Emeritus at Melbourne has been very selective when choosing who will make up this team to serve its residents; only those with the heart of a servant and longevity as a goal are accepted into this family.
