This is the promise that the staff at Emeritus at Escondido - and throughout Emeritus Senior Living communities - has shared since 1988, when our senior living 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.
The Perfect Location
Emeritus at Escondido is nestled at the base of the mountain range that is home to Palomar Mountain and the famous Palomar Observatory. Our senior living community is located in a quiet residential area, with shopping conveniences just a short block away. The climate in Escondido is ideal; temperate with warm summers, but close enough to the coast to enjoy those cooling sea breezes.
Set on four acres of beautifully landscaped grounds with courtyards and walking trails, Emeritus at Escondido is considered one of Escondido's premier senior living communities. Located in the heart of Escondido, close to Highway 78 and Interstate 15, our community offers 84 senior apartments on two floors, each with wonderful views of our expansive lawns and trees (and some with a stunning view of the mountain range to the east). Here our residents -- in many cases, with their pets -- enjoy retirement and assisted living. Each of our apartments offers either a private patio or balcony so that our residents can take advantage of our wonderful weather. We are close to area casinos, Lake Wohlford and Dixon Lake (where we picnic often), world-class shopping, museums and wineries. Our lovely chapel is always open to residents, and provides a comfortable and inviting space to attend to spiritual needs.
A Wonderful Selection
You will love our spacious, updated apartments. Each of our floor plans -- from our roomy 1-bedroom (with lots of closet space), to our "homey" Alcove (our most popular apartment), to our efficient and comfortable studio -- have outside access via a private patio or balcony. Our apartments give residents the home-like feel and independence they crave with the reassurance of knowing that help is just a push-button away.
Senior Residential and Assisted Living
Emeritus at Escondido feel like home from the moment you walk in. Our open, spacious 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 resident-directed clubs and community outings to the many wonderful attractions within a short distance, such as the famed Del Mar Racetrack, the San Diego County Fair, Balboa Park, local casinos, museums and restaurants.
