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 Tulsa – and throughout Brookdale Senior Living communities has shared since 1999 – 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 retirees who have chosen our community for its active lifestyle.
The Perfect Location
Emeritus at Tulsa is considered one of Tulsa County’s premier assisted living and Alzheimer’s communities. We are located in mid-town, the heart of the city, just south of I-44 at Lewis. We are situated between Tulsa’s two major hospital complexes: St. John/Hillcrest just to our Northwest, and St. Francis to the Southeast. Minutes from fashionable Utica Square and Philbrook Museum, and just a few more minutes from OneOK Field and the renowned BOK Center, our community overlooks the rolling hills of south Tulsa. Going east from Lewis Avenue, the drive through the trees and up the hill brings you home.
A Wonderful Selection
The architecture of our building is majestic; once inside residents like the elegant and comfortable surroundings. From cool fall days through the beginnings of spring, the fireplace in the entry serves as a “welcome home” beacon. The entry flows into a spacious Living Room and elegant Dining Room. Just off the Living Room is an old-fashioned screened porch which is the perfect place to read or visit with other residents on good-weather days.
Strong, Caring Professional Relationships
At Emeritus at Tulsa, we have a strong network of relationships with physicians, hospitals, rehab centers, home health agencies and hospice providers in order to provide the best in outside services to our residents.
The staff at Emeritus at Tulsa are best described as people who care. Average tenure is between four and five years, with a surprising number of caregivers having been here since our doors opened in 1999.
Our Community Lifestyle
A Wonderful Active Lifestyle
We take residents on personal errands at least once a week. We often go for walks or window shop at our nearby shopping center. Twice a week we handle our health care appoints at the doctor, dentist and eye doctor. Our weekends are packed with trips and activities. We have scenic drives to nearby attractions like Tulsa’s Woodward Park, Rose Garden and the BOK Center. We also have arts and crafts projects, card games, and music.
Partnering With the Local Neighborhood Community
Emeritus at Tulsa hosts a monthly Alzheimer’s Support Group. We also host musicians from the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame for the enjoyment of our residents.
Dining is paramount at Emeritus at Tulsa. Our Assisted Living residents may enjoy a continental breakfast a Country Kitchen (adjacent to resident halls) or a full breakfast in the main Dining Room. Those choosing the continental breakfast may enjoy a leisurely breakfast in robe and slippers.
Both Lunch and Dinner menus offer two meal choices, along with the “always available” menu. This menu includes a choice of sandwiches, soup, a fruit plate with cottage cheese, a cheeseburger or a hamburger. As in a fine restaurant, choices abound.
