About Our Community

This is the promise that the staff at Emeritus at Lakewood - and throughout Emeritus Senior Living communities - has shared since 1999, when our assisted living and retirement 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 senior living community for its active lifestyle.

The Perfect Location

Emeritus at Lakewood's senior living community is located in a wooded area just inside the village. We are in a quiet park-like setting in a residential area, but we are just minutes away are restaurants and stores. You would never know in our quiet location how close we are to all the conveniences. The city of Jamestown is just 5 miles away and very convenient for doctor and other appointments.

Our location in the woods is a perfect setting to enjoy the changing of the seasons. Whether it's the spring flowers, the colors of the fall foliage, or the beauty of the snow on the trees in the winter, we have the perfect views. We are located just minutes from Chautauqua Lake and take advantage of all that offers. Cruising on the "Summer Wind", dining at one of the many lakefront restaurants, or taking a scenic ride, our residents have opportunity to enjoy the beauty around them. We are located close to Chautauqua Institution with its wonderful cultural and entertainment offerings during the summer season and, during the rest of the year, we have the Lucille Ball Little Theater and the Reg Lenna Civic Center events to visit.

A Wonderful Selection

Emeritus at Lakewood offers four sizes of senior apartments. This allows our residents the ability to select the most home-like setting for them. Our apartments range in size from studios to two bedrooms. Each has a private bath and kitchenette. All are carpeted and each has a great view of the property.

Set on 23 acres in a quiet wooded area with beautifully landscaped grounds, Emeritus at Lakewood is one of Western New York's premier senior living communities. Just five miles from I-86, our community offers 77 senior apartments on two floors. Our common areas, including our lovely dining room, TV room and wellness center, give residents and their loved ones the opportunity to socialize and form friendships. We also offer a wide range of activities every month, including off-site excursions to the Chautauqua Institution, local dining establishments, visiting Chautauqua Lake and area shopping centers. Transportation is also available to your local doctor’s appointments and other health-related needs.

Strong, Caring Professional Relationships

We strive to maintain strong professional relationships in the community with the other healthcare facilities and providers. By keeping the communication lines open with the WCA and other area hospitals and facilities such as the Heritage Skilled Nursing and Rehab Center and Lutheran Social Services, we are able to ensure the safety and well-being of our residents when situations arise that need other temporary health care solutions. The relationships with our local physicians are another bond that we continue to nurture and grow to provide continuum of care for our residents.


Emeritus at Lakewood offers excellent care as demonstrated by their last two year's of Department of Health surveys. In addition, we have received certificates of excellence for achieving a 95% or greater resident satisfaction survey rating. Emeritus at Lakewood has also been recognized by the Jamestown Area Youth Soccer for our continued sponsorship and support. Emeritus at Lakewood has been presented with the Ann Marie Fitzer Memorial Award of Excellence by the Chautuaqua County Office of the Aging and Chautauqua Works.
