"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 Lake Charles— 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 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds with a courtyard, lovely gardens and walking trails, Emeritus at Lake Charles is considered one of Louisiana's premier assisted living and Alzheimer's communities. Located at the intersection of Weaver and Country Club Road, our community offers 80 apartments all on one level 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.
Our community also offers an innovative memory care program, Join Their Journey®, for seniors affected by Alzheimer's or dementia. 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 Lake Charles feels like home the moment you walk through the doors. Our common areas — including our lovely dining room, library and TV room — 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 exercise classes, parties, hobbies, off-site excursions, cultural events and continuing education classes. Emeritus at Lake Charles is conveniently located in a residential area, near Cameron State Bank, Whitney National Bank, Prien Lake Mall, Moss Village, Albertsons and a large new mall opening soon. Several medical facilities are also close by, including St. Patrick Hospitals, Lake Charles Memorial, Women and Children's Hospitals, Jennings Behavioral Health, Oceans Behavioral Health and a nursing home rehabilitation facility if ever needed.
