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 Quail Ridge – and throughout Brookdale Senior Living communities has shared since 1998 – when our community first opened its doors. It’s a simple promise to become extended family to the seniors entrusted in our care and to our retsidents who have chosen our community.

Our Community Lifestyle
A Wonderful Active Lifestyle
Activity is key to the success of our Join Their Journey program. Our activity program includes larger group events as well as individual one-on-one activities. A common expression heard around Emeritus at Quail Ridge is “everything is an activity” and we encourage our residents to take part in the normal activities of daily living to achieve a sense of self-worth. Music and live entertainment are a frequent occurrence as well as visitors from the animal kingdom. We encourage our residents to remain active with neighborhood strolls and daily exercise classes. A resident favorite is the weekly outing to a surprise location – Dairy Queen for ice cream, Sonic for a coke, or a tour of Christmas lights in Ransom Canyon.
Partnering with the Community
We provide monthly support groups for our community and work closely with local churches as a resource for Memory Care education. Quarterly we offer the Virtual Dementia Tour at Quail Ridge to provide caregivers an opportunity to experience the life of a dementia resident.
We provide three delicious meals per day and also offer 3 snacks per day. Our residents often participate in “snacktivities” – preparing chocolate chip cookies, blueberry muffins and many other favorite treats. We also offer finger foods for convenience and those residents who like to snack on the go. Remaining properly hydrated is a very important piece of our program and various juices and fresh water are available at all times.
