Amarillo, Texas Retirement Community
This is the promise that the staff at Emeritus at Seville Estates - and throughout Emeritus Senior Living communities has shared since 1998 - when our community first opened its doors. It's a simple 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 Seville Estates is conveniently located in the peaceful Sleepy Hollow neighborhood of Amarillo, between SW 34th Avenue and W 45th Avenue, just down from Reid’s Coulter Gardens & Nursery. Our location is also near I-40 and I-27, which provides easy access to many amenities in the area, like Westgate Mall, Wal-Mart and Amarillo’s medical district. Amarillo’s Medical district includes Northwest Texas Healthcare System and BSA Health System – to name a few. Our community is in a great location to be able to provide a variety of outings for our residents. We can go bowling at Western Bowl. We can take a walk and see all the beautiful flowers at our local botanical gardens. We also can go to Meade Park, our favorite picnic spot. Sometimes we go to our favorite Mexican restaurant or grab ice cream at Brahms. Every fall we make a special trip to the small Texas Panhandle town of Canadian to see the beautiful foliage.
A Wonderful Selection
Our small, close-knit community features 45 apartments and a family feel – perfect for the comfort and relaxation of your loved one! There are 27 studios, with three different sizes and styles. We can accommodate a variety of needs and budgets! All apartments include a kitchenette with refrigerator and cabinets, a large handicapped-accessible bathroom, wall-to-wall carpeting, individual temperature controls and large windows offering lovely views – some of our courtyard; others overlook Coulter Gardens. Residents are also provided emergency call pendants, which they can activate anytime they need assistance. Pets are also welcome.
Additionally, our community offers several common areas for assisted living residents, including an activities room with a TV area, a large living room and dining room. Although we are a small single-level community, our building is spread out over a wide area and has three separate courtyards. All three offer mature landscaping and walking paths; one is enclosed for our memory care residents.
In our Memory Care Neighborhood, our residents have the option of having their own studio, or they can share a “Friendship Suite,” a great option if the resident is not accustomed to living alone – or for families who wish to save on rent. A total of 18 apartments are available. In addition, residents have access to a comfortable kitchen area, where we often serve them lunch, as well as their own dining room.
Strong, Caring Professional Relationships
We partner closely with three different home health agencies, which come into our community typically three days a week, to provide physical, occupational and speech therapy. Residents and their families may choose to use one of these agencies – or we can refer them to others in the area; it’s always their choice. Either way, we can coordinate appointments for our residents. In addition, one of our home health agencies is able to help residents with diabetes, and should a resident require a higher level of skilled nursing services, we can bring in outside hospice care.
We have two dedicated groups of staff – one for our assisted living residents, and a second for residents with memory impairments. Many staff members have been with us for three-plus years. Not only are they dedicated to our residents, but they are also especially helpful to our families and go above and beyond to support them as needed.
Our assisted living staff includes Resident Aids, who provide one-on-one assistance with daily care; Med Aids, who are available 24 hours a day to manage our residents’ medication needs; a full-time Activities Director, and a Wellness Coordinator. She works closely with a local physician who, along with a Physician’s Assistant, provides on-site care for the convenience of our residents. This is especially beneficial for those residents who are not from the Amarillo area and currently don’t have a doctor, as there are very few local physicians able to take on new Medicare patients.
Our memory care staff includes our wonderful Memory Care Director, who has been with us for more than three years, as well as a dedicated staff of caregivers. They are truly special people – extremely patience and understanding. They work hard to overcome any obstacle that might stand in the way to providing the best care possible. For example, many memory care residents are very sensitive to water. So when they are getting them ready for a bath or shower, they might turn on a heat lamp in advance or use a special type of soap that the resident loves. In addition, our staff participates in extensive training, including ongoing Join Their Journey classes and in-services given by our director on such topics as validation and redirection techniques, safe bathing procedures and how to manage behaviors.
