"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 a simple promise that the staff at Emeritus at Denver — and throughout Emeritus Senior Living communities — has shared since 1998, 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 community for its active lifestyle.
Set on beautifully landscaped grounds with a courtyard, lovely gardens and walking trails, Emeritus at Denver is considered one of the premier assisted living and Alzheimer's communities in the Greater Denver area. Located close to US-285, Sheridan Blvd., Federal Blvd. and Oxford Ave, our community offers 60 apartments on one floor for easy access. Here our residents — in many cases, with their pets — enjoy retirement living. Yet should you need a helping hand from our warm and caring staff, we also offer complete assisted living services, tailor-made to your needs. Our services focus on wellness to help you maintain your health, so you can live as independently as possible. The level of care — more services than offered at a typical assisted living community — truly sets Emeritus at Denver apart.
Our community also offers an innovative memory care program, Join Their Journey®, for seniors affected by Alzheimer's or dementia. Our program is staffed by professionals who have undergone training that concentrates specifically on providing care to individuals with memory disorders.
Because your family's experience will be unlike any other, our goal is to get to know you and your loved one, so that we can offer support and solutions for your individual situation. We "join the journey" of your loved one by recognizing individuality, encouraging choices and allowing residents the dignity to live in a secure, personalized and familiar setting that feels comfortable for them.
With its family-friendly atmosphere, Emeritus at Denver feels like home the moment you walk through the doors. Our common areas — including our lovely dining room, TV room and library — give residents and their loved ones the opportunity to get to know one another. We also offer a wide range of activities each month, including community outings to the Denver Zoo, Denver Aquarium, baseball games, casinos and shopping trips to neighboring malls.
In addition, Emeritus at Denver is located in a quiet residential area just minutes from Downtown Denver and the Denver Tech Center. We are also close to the Southwest Plaza Mall, King Soopers, Safeway, US Bank and Wells Fargo, as well as Centennial Park, Bow Mar Park and Clement Park and Lake. Several medical facilities are nearby, including Swedish Medical Center, Porter Adventist Hospital, Littleton Adventist Hospital, Sky Ridge Medical Center and a nursing home rehabilitation facility if ever needed.
If you are living on your own, you can also choose to spend the day with us. Our in-house senior day programs offers health services tailored to your needs to help you maintain your independence. At the same time, you'll meet new people and enjoy meaningful activities that enrich your life, including shopping outings, live entertainment, educational programs, games and much more. Breakfast, lunch and snacks are provided.
