Las Vegas Senior Living Community
This is the promise that the staff at Emeritus at Las Vegas - and throughout Emeritus Senior Living communities - has shared since 2002, 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 residents who have chosen our senior living community for its active lifestyle.
The Perfect Location
Emeritus at Las Vegas is conveniently located less than two miles from the Las Vegas Strip, on the corner of E. Russell Road and McLeod Drive. I-95 is just a few blocks from our community, and Desert Springs Hospital is a short drive north. Wal-Mart is so close, many residents are able to get there on their wheelchair scooters (although we also take residents there in our van on a weekly basis). With so much available in the immediate area, we never have any difficulty finding great local lunch and dinner spots or shows to attend. Right here in Las Vegas is another resident favorite – Springs Preserve, a 180-acre preserve featuring museums, galleries, outdoor concerts and events, colorful botanical gardens and an interpretive trail system. Residents also enjoy the occasional trip to the Hoover Dam and the Valley of Fire.
A Wonderful Selection
Our single-story community offers a total of 61 senior apartments, 45 for our assisted living residents and 16 studios in our memory care neighborhood. Our assisted living units include studios and one-bedroom suites, ranging from 281-square feet to 477-square feet. Our spacious one bedrooms include a kitchenette with sink and microwave. Everything is included in the monthly rent, from weekly housekeeping to meals to activities and transportation to doctors’ appointments and outings. We have several common areas, including two living rooms, one of which has a large flat-panel TV and doubles as a library; an activities room; a beauty salon open three days a week; and an enclosed outdoor courtyard accessible only from the inside. Our memory care neighborhood is located in a separate, secured area of our community and has its own secured outside area. All of the doors in our senior living community have alarms to ensure resident security.
Strong, Caring Professional Relationships
Based upon physician orders, we can bring in any home health or rehabilitation service required to provide services in the convenience of the resident’s apartment. Services can include physical, occupational and speech therapy, as well as skilled nursing and hospice care.
Las Vegas tends to be a more transient community, so it’s rare to see such staff loyalty as we enjoy at our community. In fact, many of our staff members have been here for several years. While it might be cliché to say, they truly go above and beyond for residents. For example, if a resident arrived back late from a doctor’s appointment and missed lunch, one of our caregivers will make sure the kitchen prepares them a sandwich – a simple example, but one that illustrates just how concerned they are that residents are always well cared for.
We have two separate groups of staff – one dedicated to our assisted living residents, the other to our memory care residents. Both receive ongoing training, including participation in the Emeritus Silverchair Training Program, which covers a wide range of topics related to senior health, from accident prevention to Medicare basics to residents’ rights. Our memory care staff receives additional training in understanding Alzheimer’s and dementia, as well as in the Emeritus Join Their Journey program.
