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 Brookdale Spring Arbor, formerly Emeritus at Spring Arbor – and throughout Brookdale senior living communities – has shared since 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 assisted living community.
The Perfect Location
Rock Hill, South Carolina’s premier assisted living community is at Emeritus at Spring Arbor. We are conveniently located 20 minutes south of Charlotte via Interstate 77. The community is near two beautiful lakes – Lake Norman and Lake Wylie – which are great for boating, fishing and visiting. You can take a stroll at nearby Glencarin Gardens or the Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens, or visit the Billy Graham Library.
Other local attractions are the Uptown Theatre, museums of art and history, art galleries, Winthrop University, Knights Stadium, Carolina Panthers Stadium, Galleria Mall, Carolina Place and South Park Mall.
The community is also conveniently located within five minutes of Piedmont Medical Center and other local family practice clinics. Carolina Medical Center and Presbyterian Hospital are located within 30 minutes of our community.
A Wonderful Selection
Brookdale Spring Arbor offers a down-home atmosphere in a quiet assisted living community in Rock Hill, South Carolina. We offer both private and semi-private studio apartments with a variety of views. Our one-level building makes it easy for residents of any physical ability to navigate. We offer multiple activity areas, a rocking chair front porch, a sun room with beautiful seasonal views, a courtyard and accommodations for all activity levels.
Strong, Caring Professional Relationships
Brookdale Spring Arbor has fostered strong relationships with a wide range of local organizations that offer an array of services to our residents. Some of these include local religious groups and churches; multiple hospice and home-care agencies; Alzheimer’s, dementia and Parkinson’s associations; Veteran Affairs, financial institutions and collegiate organizations.
Palmetto Medical Group serves as Brookdale Spring Arbor’s in-house physicians and makes weekly visits to the community to ensure the top medical care for our residents. The Weston Group is also set up within Spring Arbor to offer daily physical and occupational therapy to our residents.
Brookdale Spring Arbor is proud of its caring and experienced staff – many of whom have been with us for more than 10 years. When we talk to potential residents about our staff we tell them that our employees are different here at Spring Arbor than at any other community.
Our staff participates in bi-weekly trainings to enhance the quality of care they provide, and they care for residents as they would their own parents or grandparents. They go the extra step to make our residents feel like they are truly at home and that they are loved and taken care of in the best manner possible while promoting independence.
Our Community Lifestyle
A Wonderful Active
We offer activities that focus on the residents’ physical, mental, spiritual, and cognitive well-being. These activities include a daily exercise program, bingo, shopping trips, lunch bunch, outside entertainment performances, and craft sessions.
Every month we host themed meals that showcase different themes or cultural experiences from around the world. We offer weekly visits from local churches for devotions and church services. “Men’s time out” is a special addition for our men – a program that features trips to restaurants such as Hooters, bowling trips, or an afternoon at the driving range.
Our residents also participate in a word search club which meets monthly to build word search puzzles based on specific themes. Residents participate daily in socials, discussion groups, challenging mental games and physical activity that promote socialization and collaboration.
Partnering with the Local Neighborhood Community
Our community participates in the Annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s. The Walk benefits our residents directly as it raises funds for support and research in the Alzheimer’s community. We also participate in a holiday drive during the holidays to support a local charity (Humane Society, Hope House, Children’s Attention Home, etc.). This allows the residents to participate in community service as well as directly support the charity in which we promote.
Our community offers a safe trick-or-treating alternative for neighborhood children in Rock Hill and surrounding communities. Our residents love seeing all the costumed children and hosting them. We also host an annual Car Show featuring the Rock Hill Cruisers. It is open to the public and enjoyed by both residents and the community alike.
We offer a hot breakfast, two entrees for lunch and dinner, or our “always available” menu. This menu is selected by the residents at the monthly food committee meetings. It includes items like a cottage cheese and fruit plate, soups, sandwiches, salads, etc. Each month, we showcase our dining services director during “Spotlight Chef,” where a feature dessert or other entrée is created from start to finish in the main dining room then served to each resident.
Our Senior Dining Service Director, Patty, has been working in the industry since she was 14 years old. She has more than 35 years of dining services experience. She has worked in fine dining restaurants, taken classes at the Culinary Institute of America in New York, and has work in health care for 15 years. Being the best of the best, Patty is currently serving the Dining Service Department as a field mentor.
