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 Pleasant Hills and throughout Brookdale Senior Living communities has shared since our community first opened its doors in 1983. 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 Pleasant Hills is nestled in a quiet residential area in the prestigious town of west Little Rock. Our community is near the Arkansas River, and surrounded by the scenic hills of the area.

We are approximately 10 miles from downtown Little Rock, as well as Dickey Stephens Baseball Park, the Clinton Library, the Robinson Theater, and the Arkansas Arts Center. The Reynolds Senior Center and several shopping venues, including Park Plaza Mall, are within a few miles of our community.

We are conveniently located to all the major interstates (I-430, I-630, I-40 and I-30), which gives us easy access to the region and all the attractions and venues we like to visit.

If ever needed, the community is just minutes away from several respected medical facilities, including Baptist Hospital, St. Vincent Hospital, University of Arkansas Medical Science Hospital and the Arkansas Heart Hospital. There are also a number of physician offices nearby, including physician groups at St. Vincent Longevity Center, with providers that specialize in geriatrics.

A Wonderful Selection

Our warm and welcoming community offers 163 senior apartments on three floors, with studio, one-bedroom, one-bedroom handicap, and two-bedroom apartments available in our main building. We also have one- and two-bedroom cottages.

Our tree-filled campus with professional landscaping makes for beautiful outdoor scenery in every season. Our setting has been described by many visitors as pleasant, inviting and home-like. Our open-rafter dining room with a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace makes for a pleasant dining experience and social setting.

Strong, Caring Professional Relationships

Emeritus at Pleasant Hills nurtures strong relationships with area hospitals, medical clinics, skilled nursing facilities and rehabilitation centers. We have also built good relationships with a number of trusted health-care providers. Our relationships with key staff at these organizations allow us to provide a seamless continuum of care for our residents.


Comprised of caring, compassionate individuals who meet the needs of our residents, our community is a very homey, nurturing environment. We have many employees with years of longevity, some even here for as long as 20 years. Part of the reason our staff is so trustworthy and caring is that they are passionate about what they do, and it shows in the way they take pride in their jobs and how they interact and care for each resident with dignity, respect and humor.

We have hosted wellness clinics for the public; receptions and book signings for world-renowned geriatrician, Dr. David Lipschitz; presentations from house and senate speakers on senior-related issues such as Medicare and Social Security; and seminars on a variety of topics that affect seniors, such as caregiving, Alzheimer’s disease, elder law, and hospice.

We are also active members of the Alzheimer’s Association, and contribute to its mission by participating in its annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s.

Fine Dining

Our Dining Services Director is a culinary chef with 20 years of experience, who is always concerned about serving residents food that they’ll enjoy. We offer delicious southern home-style cooked meals, three times a day, in our fine dining room. We also offer an “always available” menu, including fish filet, chicken breast, hamburger, grilled cheese, baked potato, and more.
