This is a simple promise that the staff at Emeritus at Catalina Foothills; and throughout Emeritus Senior Living communities; has shared since 1997, when Emeritus at Catalina Foothills 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.
Right at Home
Set on beautifully landscaped grounds with an outdoor courtyard, lovely gardens and meandering trails, Emeritus at Catalina Foothills is one of Arizona's premier assisted living and memory care communities. Located in a scenic area close to the foothills with panoramic mountain views, our assisted living community offers 96 senior apartments on three floors. Here our residents, in many cases, with their pets; enjoy living in a warm, family-like atmosphere. Yet a helping hand from our warm, caring staff; many of whom have been with us years; is always close by.
