Fort Worth, Texas Assisted Living and Retirement Community
Emeritus at Tanglewood Oaks
Fort Worth, TX 76109
This is the promise that the staff at Emeritus at Tanglewood Oaks — and throughout Emeritus Senior Living communities — has shared since 1997, 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 retirement community for its active lifestyle.
The Perfect Location
Set on five acres of beautifully landscaped grounds with an enclosed courtyard, lovely gardens and walking trails, Emeritus at Tanglewood Oaks is considered one the premier retirement communities in Fort Worth, Texas. Located close to I-30 and I-20, our community offers a homelike atmosphere with 73 senior apartments on one floor for easy access.
