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 Ocoee – and throughout Brookdale Senior Living communities – has shared since 2000, 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 retirees who have chosen our retirement community for its active lifestyle.
The Perfect Location
Emeritus at Ocoee is centrally located in West Orlando just minutes from downtown Orlando, Windermere, Dr. Phillips and Winter Garden. The property is far enough away to be out of the bustle and noise of the city, yet close enough for convenience. Additionally, we have the West Oaks Mall one mile away and Health Central Hospital within two miles.
Emeritus at Ocoee is in a residential area with close proximity to the West Oaks Mall, Publix, Winn Dixie, CVS, and Walgreens as well as the Health Central Hospital and quite a few nursing home rehabilitation centers if ever needed.
A Wonderful Selection
We offer a variety of living arrangements, residents may choose from three types of private senior apartments, which include studios, one bedrooms and two bedrooms. Our popular and affordable friendship suite allows two residents the privacy of their own bedroom while sharing a common living area and bathroom. All apartments include individual climate control as well.
Our Victorian inspired community sits in a beautifully landscaped setting. The interior boasts such features as a fine dining room atmosphere, library, country kitchen/resident lounge, beauty and barber salon, exercise and therapy room, parlor and spacious activity room along with many other resident lounge areas. Outdoor patios and courtyards allow our residents to enjoy the fresh air as often as they choose.

Strong, Caring Professional Relationships
We maintain very strong relationships with the local hospitals, skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers, and hospices listed below. Through solid communication with these relationships, we ensure the highest quality of care for our residents for their many possible needs. Hospitals: Health Central, Dr. Phillips, ORMC and Florida Hospital. SNF & Rehab: Lake Bennett, Heath Center of Windermere, Health Central Park, Ocoee Healthcare Center and Quality Healthcare. Hospices: VITAS, Hospice of the Comforter, Cornerstone and Samaritan Care.
Our staff is the key differentiator between Emeritus at Ocoee and all other communities. Care and consistency are our first priorities and we are very fortunate to have a long tenured staff, some of whom have been here since we opened in 2000.
Emeritus at Ocoee is fortunate to be the recognized leader in assisted living within the West Orlando area. We have been recognized by the Chamber of Commerce and continually receive fabulous feedback from our resident’s and families.
Our Community Lifestyle
A Wonderful Place to Live
Emeritus at Ocoee offers a wide variety of activities to suit the needs and interests of our residents. Many gather around our baby grand piano to sing along and dance to their favorite songs whether being played by a weekly entertainer or a family member. Others take advantage of our weekly life enrichment and computer classes. For adventure seekers, we offer offsite events ranging from spring training baseball games, to dinner out at a local restaurant or simply to see the sights of our beautiful surroundings.
Our bright and cheery common areas, including our lovely dining room, piano lounge and coffee parlor, give residents and their loved ones the opportunity to get to know one another. We also offer a wide range of activities each month, including exercise programs and off-site excursions.

Last Valentine’s Day we noticed that Walmart had all kinds of flowers left over after Valentine’s Day, and when we asked what they were going to do with them they said, “THROW THEM AWAY”. Well, I said no way and asked them to donate them to our community. They did and we put smiles on […]
