“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 Brookdale Harrisonburg (formerly Emeritus at Harrisonburg) — and throughout Brookdale Senior Living communities — has shared since 2003, 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 retirees who have chosen our community for its active lifestyle.

The Perfect Location

Brookdale Harrisonburg is located in the heart of the majestic Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. The community is just minutes away from the Valley Mall, Target, Kohls, Old Navy and Specialty shopping as well as quick and easy access to Interstate 81. Living in this lively retirement community, you can savor the beauty of the Shenandoah Valley while remaining convenient to the attractions of the Richmond, Charlottesville, Roanoke and Washington, D.C., metropolitan areas.

A Wonderful Selection

Set aside home maintenance and lawn care; free your time for the family, friends and pastimes. At Brookdale Harrisonburg, you’ll discover a wide variety of maintenance-free apartments along winding streets with mature trees and professional landscaping . We’ve maintained that “old-fashioned” sense of Community. Is it time for a color treatment or cut and style?

We have an onsite salon for your pampering needs. The community is surrounded by the beautiful Blue Ridge and Massanutten mountains offering a picturesque scene of peace and tranquility.

Brookdale Harrisonburg represents a community in which seniors have choices, support and dignity. There are several options for transportation for residents besides their personal vehicles.

Our community is conveniently located on the Harrisonburg Transit Authority bus line. Arrangements for emergency and non-emergency transportation may be arranged through our business office or take advantage of our van for scheduled appointments.

Our Staff

Our professional staff is comprised of impassioned professionals who have a genuine and vested interest in the lives of our seniors. We have direct care associates, certified nursing associates, registered medication assistants and LPN’s who work harmoniously to ensure that our seniors medical and emotional needs are being meet in an environment that best replicates the living situations prior to moving in with us.

Our staff get to know each individual resident and can create individualized plans for success in regards to residents and family’s needs and expectations. Our home-like atmosphere and friendly caring staff wrap our residents in warmth and confidence and ease the transition from home to our community. Brookdale Harrisonburg is considered one of Virginia’s premier assisted living and Alzheimer’s communities.

Our community has beautiful “curb appeal” with its professional landscaping, walkways, outdoor courtyard and lovely gardens. Our community is small, with just 54 apartments all on one floor for easy access. Here our residents — in many cases, with their pets — enjoy retirement living. Yet should you need a helping hand from our warm and caring staff, we also offer complete assisted living services, tailor-made to your needs.

Our services focus on wellness to help you maintain your health, so you can live as independently as possible.
