About Our Community
"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 the promise that the staff at Emeritus at Wilburn Gardens — and throughout Emeritus assisted living communities — has shared since 1998, when Emeritus at Wilburn Gardens 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.
Right at Home
Set on five acres of beautifully landscaped grounds with an outdoor courtyard, Emeritus at Wilburn Gardens is one of Virginia's premier assisted living and Alzheimer's communities. Located just off I-95, our senior living community offers 99 apartments on three floors. Here our residents — in many cases, with their pets — enjoy retirement living within a home-like setting. Yet a helping hand from our warm, caring staff — many of whom have been with us for at least five years — is always close by.
Join Their Journey - Alzheimer's and Dementia Care
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.
New friends, new beginnings
Our common areas — including our lovely dining room, library and TV room — 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 off-site excursions to local museums, movies and art exhibits — even relaxing rides into the countryside! While our community is in a rural area, it's centrally located, with major shopping malls, grocery stores, pharmacies and banks all within one mile. Historic parks, Lake Anna and Mary Washington Hospital are just minutes away. A nursing home rehabilitation center is also located in the area if ever needed.
