Emeritus at Rocky Hill is also near some of the best hospitals and health-care providers in the state, including Hartford Hospital, New Britain General, Manchester Memorial.

Strong, Caring Professional Relationships
To help provide our residents with a seamless continuum of care, our nurses and staff members have established wonderful relationships with local health-care providers and skilled nursing facilities. Several providers come to the community to provide care to our residents on a monthly or bi-weekly basis including physicians, an APRN, podiatrist and a geriatric psychiatrist.
We also have close connections with the Alzheimer’s Association of Connecticut and the Connecticut Assisted Living Association.
We are blessed to have staff members who have devoted their life’s work to working with seniors. Our dedicated and caring staff – several of whom have been with us for many years – provide exceptional care and keep our residents happy and engaged. 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 care for each resident with dignity, respect and humor.
