About Our Community
Little Rock, AR Assisted Living
Brookdale Pleasant Hills, formerly Emeritus at Pleasant Hills, is a Little Rock, AR assisted living community for seniors. It 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 ten 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
Brookdale 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 healthcare 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. 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.
