This is a simple promise that the staff at Emeritus at Lakeridge Place; and throughout Emeritus Senior Living communities; has shared since 1997, when 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 senior living community for its active lifestyle.
In our assisted living community, we have several common areas – a library with fireplace, where residents love to gather and play dominos; a mezzanine that opens up to the second floor with a wonderful sitting area, where residents often do puzzles or enjoy watching the fish tank. Our lobby downstairs also has a sitting area, a fireplace and another fish tank – one of three in our community! A private dining room for birthday parties, special events and family gatherings is available for our residents’ personal use. In addition, our main dining room features floor-to-ceiling windows that look out onto the lake and to a patio area with tables, chairs and umbrellas. We also have our own in-house beauty salon open three to four days a week.
In addition, we are the only community in the area with a licensed vocational nurse on staff 16 hours a day, seven days a week – from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. This is especially beneficial to many of our residents who are diabetic and need help keeping their disease in control. We are also a higher acuity Type B community and are licensed to be able to assist residents in the event of an emergency evacuation.
