Memory Care Burnsville, MN

At Burnsville Emerald Crest by Augustana Care, seniors will find thoughtful memory care in an assisted living setting where each individual’s personal preferences are valued. Our assisted living services help residents with tasks like dressing or showering and are tailored to their needs. Through specialized training and individual senior care plans, we partner with residents to maximize their abilities and encourage independence, enjoyment and opportunities for success.

A structured daily program includes exercise, music, crafts and more. In addition, on-site visits by professionals who provide medical and therapy services offer convenient support for physical concerns. As with all Augustana Care programs, memory care also includes spiritual support for residents and families.

Meet the Burnsville Staff

Residence Director Denise Beck

Denise-Beck_DSC_7246.jpgI have been working in the healthcare field for 24 years, beginning as a certified nursing assistant (CNA) in a long term care center in 1989. I worked as a CNA for 7 years while studying to be a licensed practical nurse (LPN) and then worked as an LPN for more than 11 years. In 2010 I obtained a registered nursing (RN) degree and became a director of nursing in an assisted living community until June, 2013. I then accepted a position as resident director/RN at Emerald Crest of Burnsville. I accepted the position because I wanted to work in a community that emphasizes capabilities instead of losses. I am proud to be working for a company that truly encompasses every aspect of what it means to care for older adults.

Registered Nurse Jeanne Anderson

Jeanne-Anderson_DSC_7273.jpgI have worked in a variety of healthcare settings including long-term care, hospitals, home care and assisted living as a registered nurse. My passion is working with older adults in memory care and I have been at Emerald Crest by Augustana Care for 13 years. I love what I do and think it is an honor to serve residents, families, and staff. I feel blessed to have found a career and a setting to practice nursing where I can truly grow and give back.

Occupational Therapist Sarah Hartmann

Sarah-Hartman-Emerald-Crest-Burnsville-MN.jpgDuring my occupational therapist clinical work, I fell in love with older generations. Their great appreciation for the work I was doing made me realize I was meant to be working with older people. Residents have become another family for me.

Working in a small home-like setting really fosters healthy bonds between residents and staff. Knowing I can have a positive effect on people’s lives makes coming to work so much more than a job.

Administrative Assistant Robyn Iverson

As a child I would occasionally go to work with family members who worked in assisted living facilities. It was very interesting to me and became something I wanted to do when I grew up. Once I received my certified nursing credential, I started working in memory care. Since joining Emerald Crest as an administrative assistant, I enjoy spending time with residents and getting to hear their fascinating stories.

We were exceptionally pleased with the staff and their care – beyond our expectations. We picked Emerald Crest because of the “family” atmosphere and home environment.  We speak very highly of Emerald Crest in the community and would refer someone with full confidence and no reservations.
