New Erickson Senior Living Community Comes to Lakewood Ranch

Erickson Senior Living, a leading developer and manager of continuing care retirement communities, is pleased to announce the addition of Emerson Lakes--its newest community--in Lakewood Ranch, Fla.

"We are proud to be developing a new community in such a vibrant area," says Alan Butler, CEO of Erickson Senior Living. "Emerson Lakes will be the ideal setting for seniors who want to enjoy an active, worry-free lifestyle in a prime Southwest Florida area."

Location, location, location

With a picturesque setting and an array of top-notch amenities, Emerson Lakes will be an oasis in and of itself--perfect for those who want a retirement lifestyle like no other.

Emerson Lakes, named after the spectacular lakes on the 45-acre property, is also just a short drive from the powder-soft sands and blue waters of the Gulf Coast. Siesta Key, Lido Key, Longboat Key, and Anna Maria Island are less than 20 miles from the community. 

Top-notch amenities

Above and beyond the breathtaking views and harmonious landscaping that will contribute to its resort-like feel, Emerson Lakes will provide an unbeatable retirement lifestyle. 

Choose from a dozen different floor plan options to create the perfect living space. Looking to spend more time out and about in the community? A spacious one-bedroom apartment home may be the ideal layout for you. If you like to have a guest bedroom, den, or home office, consider looking at a two-bedroom floor plan. 

The community's fitness center, complete with the latest exercise machines and a full schedule of classes, will be just a short, indoor stroll from any apartment home. 

"Climate-controlled walkways will allow residents to meet up with friends and attend our many programs and events--without having to go outside in the Florida heat," says Sales Director Adam Zubowsky.

On-campus restaurants and bars will create even more opportunities for residents to connect with their neighbors.   

Worry-free living

Residents of Devonshire and Siena Lakes, Emerson Lakes' sister Erickson Senior Living communities in Florida, speak highly of their experiences. 

Hugo and Anne Marie Finarelli happily waved goodbye to home maintenance and repairs when they moved to Siena Lakes, the Erickson Senior Living community in Naples, Fla. For more than 40 years, the couple painstakingly tracked all their household expenses.

"There were always expenses that popped up," says Hugo. 

Now, in their spacious two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath apartment home at Siena Lakes, all expenses are covered.

"If there's a problem with your heater, you just pick up the phone and make a call to General Services!" he notes.

The predictable monthly service package, which covers everything from made-to-order meals at on-site restaurants to appliance repairs, allows Erickson Senior Living residents to live worry-free.

"Moving here was my gift to our children," says Anne Marie, noting that their financial security creates peace of mind for them and their family. "I think they're relieved that we're settled."

Zubowsky notes that, just like the Finarellis, Emerson Lakes' maintenance-free lifestyle is a huge draw for retirees considering a move to senior living. 

"Erickson Senior Living is known throughout the country for its financial value," says Zubowsky. "It's a game changer for many people. You've worked really hard for your money, and we recognize that!"
