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 Ocala West – and throughout Brookdale Senior Living communities – has shared since 1999, 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 Ocala retirement community for its active lifestyle.

Emeritus Ocala West is located near the beautiful horse farms of West Ocala. Our community is 6 miles west of Interstate 75 off the 200 Corridor.

The staff at Emeritus Ocala West works with area hospitals, skilled nursing facilities and home health agencies. Through communications and relationships, we are able to provide an easy transition and most importantly a consistent level of care.
The Emeritus Ocala West team is dedicated to our residents.
