Community Description

"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 a simple promise that the staff at Peridot, and throughout Emeritus Senior Living communities has shared since 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

The Peridot is located one mile from historic Prescott, just far enough from the hustle and the bustle of downtown, yet still close to the heart of this charming city of 40,000. We’re just off E. Gurley Street – one of Prescott’s main thoroughfares – giving us easy access to all that the area has to offer, from its numerous museums to a lovely Victorian historical district to upscale shopping centers and restaurants. In addition, there are several hospitals in the area – The Peridot is between Yavapai Regional Medical Center’s two campuses, the VA Medical Center is just four miles away, and Mountain Valley Regional Rehabilitation Hospital is 10 miles from our retirement community.

Prescott is a small mountain community at the same altitude as Denver. The air is wonderful, the High Desert light is spectacular and the weather, mild with just a small amount of snow in the wintertime. Our community is tucked into the foothills, offering a mile-high view of the surrounding mountains and Prescott Valley. Downtown Prescott, with its old-time square reminiscent of the Wild West and ringed with charming boutiques and restaurants, is just a short drive from The Peridot. Residents never give up an opportunity to attend a community event, art show, dance performance or good old-fashioned Western Shootout in “The Square,” as it’s called here in Prescott. They also love visiting our local museums, including the Phippen Museum of Art, a nationally known museum featuring art from the American West. We also take resident to concerts at the Yavapai Community College, as well as to the Prescott Gateway Mall – an upscale shopping center, and residents always enjoy a trip to one of two Wal-Marts in the area. With our community located in the High Desert, we occasionally take residents on scenic drives through rolling hills and forests of Ponderosa Pine and on train rides through the Verde Canyon during fall foliage season. We have a unique program here: If a resident can think of it, we go and do it, whether that’s attending a hockey game, taking a trip to the Prescott Zoo, going dancing, touring Prescott’s historical district of Victorian homes, visiting our local casino, or dining out at any one of several popular destinations nearby. Let’s just say, with our gem of a location, there’s never a lack of things to do! And our residents are always game for an adventure!

Our retirement community has a total of 103 senior apartments on four floors, including three different one-bedroom configurations, and one two-bedroom style unit. More than half have wonderful views, and all apartments have either a balcony or patio that is large enough to accommodate patio furniture. Each apartment either includes a full kitchen or kitchenette; walk-in closets; private storage off the deck or balcony, with keyed entry; wheelchair accessible bathroom; all utilities except phone and Internet service (the monthly rent also includes basic cable); individually controlled heating and air-conditioning; 24-hour emergency response system; weekly housekeeping and linen service; three meals a day; a full calendar of planned activities; scheduled transportation to activities, shopping and medical appointments; all landscaping and yard maintenance; and access to our own beauty salon.

Because we are built into the surrounding hillside, our main entrance is on the third floor. Our lobby area, with its couches and fireplace, feels much like an upscale resort hotel. Our common areas are designed with vaulted ceilings and windows that ring the top of the rooms to bring in an abundance of natural light. The dining room has a two-story- high ceiling, accented by massive wooden beams. At the end of the hallways, there are sitting and reading nooks, as well as common decks, some of which are quite large and furnished. Our activities room on the first floor is the location for all of our major functions. It also includes a large patio area just outside, where residents often gather to watch our spectacular High Desert sunsets. The building itself is built in a Y-shape overlooking an inner grassy area, where deer and other wildlife wander through. There’s also a pathway that goes around the building where residents enjoy walking their dogs.

Our Staff

The Peridot prides itself on having a very stable and caring staff, some of whom have been here for five years or more. Our staff are happy to be working with older adults and feel connected to the residents and to each other. Each department is a family within itself; we all have an eye out for each other and for our residents. During one of our recent “stand up” staff meetings, a caregiver noticed a resident heading down the wrong hallway and jumped up to help her. That level of attention comes from getting to know residents well and caring for them as part of our Emeritus family. We have just the right mix of caregivers on staff to handle our community's needs. This includes our compassionate Resident Assistants, Med Techs who handle medication management and two licensed nurses – one of whom is also our Executive Director. With such a skilled group of caregivers, we can care for residents with just about any disease, except more advanced forms of Alzheimer’s.
