This is the promise that the staff at Emeritus at Carriage Inn—and throughout Emeritus Senior Living communities—has shared since 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 residents who have chosen our retirement community for its active lifestyle.
The Perfect Location
Emeritus at Carriage Inn is considered one of the premier assisted living in the Portland area. Here our residents enjoy retirement living within a comforting, homelike environment. 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.
Emeritus at Carriage Inn is located north of Corpus Christi, Texas over the Harbor Bridge, off of Highway 181. Our community is in the quiet coastal town of Portland, Texas. We are directly across the street from Portland's beautiful Northshore Country Club and within a mile of Wal-Mart, the HEB grocery store, many local restaurants, a movie theater and shopping areas.
Emeritus at Carriage Inn is within a close proximity to a 24 hour fully staffed emergency care center and several major hospitals. Fishing enthusiasts are a short drive away from the bay. The bay offers a great place to boat, fish, bird watch or a scenic place to enjoy long walks near the water. Portland, Texas has a community center offering lots of activities for seniors, including swimming and exercise classes, too.
A Wonderful Selection
Our Portland, Texas community offers one and two bedroom cottages. This selection includes the options of garages and car ports for singles or couples on the go. We also offer studio, one and two bedroom apartments each equipped with a kitchenette that includes a refrigerator and a stove or microwave nook.
Most of our senior apartments also include access to an outside porch area, which is wonderful for residents with pets. We have wide hallways that accommodate an array of devices that help our seniors. A salon is also available on campus that helps keep our residents looking their best. Our beautiful living room area celebrates our brave men and women who served in the military. It also is home to a piano and organ that are open for residents and visitors to play.
Strong, Caring Professional Relationships
Emeritus at Carriage Inn has strong connections with many local healthcare providers and area physicians. Located in our building, we have a therapy group and a home health agency that is available to see residents at request as needs arise.
There is also a local visiting physicians group that will come to Emeritus at Carriage Inn to provide medical care to those residents that find it difficult to get out making doctor appointments. For those who prefer an outside physician, there are several doctors who office within the city limits of Portland, Texas. There are also many other choices of local home health, hospice and therapy groups that come into our building to care for our residents, most who take Medicare and supplemental insurances.
Residents have created the best history books in the world. "We are 'us' because of their legacies. It is with great pride and honor that I serve them." Our wonderful staff consists of an Executive Director, Community Relations Director, Business Office Director, Concierges, Dining Services Director and dining staff, Maintenance Director and maintenance staff - including housekeeping, Life Enrichment Coordinator, and Transportation Coordinator.
