This is a simple promise that the staff at Emeritus at Roanoke — and throughout Emeritus assisted living communities — has shared since 1999, when The Court 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.

Ideal Location
Set on beautifully landscaped grounds with an outdoor courtyard, meandering trails and lovely gardens, Emeritus at Roanoke is located near Highway 581 and I-220. Our senior living community offers 56 apartments on one floor for easy access. Our common areas — including our lovely dining room, TV room and activities center — 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 programs and off-site excursions. While Emeritus at Roanoke is in a rural area, it is convenient to Towers Shopping Mall, VA Western Community College and Roanoke Memorial Hospital. A nursing home rehabilitation center is also close by if ever needed.

An innovative approach to caring for residents with memory loss
Over the past decade our community has become well known in the area for our innovative approach to caring for seniors with Alzheimer's or Dementia — an approach we call "Join Their Journey." The premise of Join Their Journey®, which is based on research conducted on seniors with Alzheimer's Disease, is simple: We believe that seniors affected by memory disorders still have so much to contribute to life. So our goal is to create a nurturing environment and provide ongoing opportunities every day that allow them to live purposeful, successful lives despite their disease.

Join Their Journey® offers these unique components:

•We gather a detailed life story from you, helping us get to know your loved one when they can no longer share their own stories themselves.

•We offer recreational and social programs based on your loved one's personal preferences and abilities.

•Each month, we keep you informed of your loved one's moments of success and purposefulness by sharing stories — "Moments in Time" — about his or her life and accomplishments here at our community. A description of an activity or outing he or she enjoyed, how he or she helped others or made new friends are just a few examples of Moments in Time.

•We offer you — the family — educational programs to help you better understand what your loved one is going through and how you can best support his or her needs.

•Through our family-to-family connections, we offer the opportunity for you to share and learn from other families experiencing similar situations through Alzheimer's and Dementia support groups, family gatherings and meetings.

•We individualize our Alzheimer's and Dementia Service and Care Plan to help with reminders, redirection, medication, bathing and other specific needs.

My mother was a resident of Brookdale Roanoke. If as much care was put into residents as landscaping and inside decor it would be perfect! The residents are awesome, but the majority of staff are "FAKE". Residents with walkers walk away without it and the staff pays no attention, personally found 2 residents lying face down outside. They claim my mother misplaced her dentures between 6am and 8am after multiple complaints of them not cleaning them they disappeared. Resident’s hair not brushed, staff is unfriendly, rude and hateful to residents when family not around. Brookdale is great at making a pretty picture... don't get fooled like I did. They blame everything on the disease and never seem to be accountable for anything. I could list numerous things so very wrong here, and NO it's not the same everywhere. We are now paying half the money, not as classy looking place, but I've seen better care in a week than I did in 6 months at Brookdale.

Brookdale in Roanoke is marketed as a memory care facility; however, the residents there do not seem to get any care specialized for people with dementia. My father is paying the maximum price for my mother's care. She is in the advanced stage of dementia. The staff, who are supposedly trained to deal with dementia patients, seem to know nothing about it. I went there one Sunday at around 11:00 and there was one staff member there for about 14 dementia patients. The television in the living area was blaring, even though dementia patients prefer quiet environments. They shouldn't even have a television since the people in this pod appeared to be unable to follow a television program. When I got there, my mother was in another patient's room and another patient was standing there, too. It was a situation anyone who deals with dementia patients could see might easily go sideways. I distracted my mother with candy and went down to her room. When I got there, there was urine on her floor with pieces of toilet paper stuck to it as though she had tried to clean it up. Her pants were also wet. I offered her water and she drank three glasses full, so it was apparent no one had offered her anything to drink. I was told by the one staff member that she hadn't eaten breakfast that morning because she didn't want any. My mother needs assistance eating and is unable to ask for food or water when she needs it. There is much more, but no space left.

I am a current client
Brookedale Roanoke is a great place. The staff are so good with the residents and the management is top notch. We couldn't have made a better choice for a community for mom. My only regret is leaving her home too long. We should have moved her sooner!! Oh yea and the recent remodeling really makes this place the best around!

A Really Neat Place
It is a really neat place. They really have designed it and catered it around people with memory issues. They are extremely nice to all the resident there and try to get them involved. I like the w... read more
