"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 Decatur
— and throughout Emeritus Senior Living communities — has shared since 1999, 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 Decatur is considered one of the premier assisted living communities specializing in Memory Care east of Atlanta. Located close to Highways 285 and 78, our community offers 60 apartments on one floor for easy access. Here our residents 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. We've designed our services to focus on wellness, helping you maintain or improve 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.
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 classes and community outings. Emeritus at Decatur is conveniently located in a urban area near downtown Decatur and the North Dekalb Mall. Several medical facilities are also close by, including Dekalb Medical Center, Wesley Woods Geriatric Hospital, and Emory Hospital.
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.
