Gladys and Pat's Story

Before choosing Emerald Crest, I was struggling. I have lupus, and doctors have advised me that stress will cause flare-ups. Working part-time, dealing with my own health issues and trying to take care of my mom meant I had a lot of stress in my life. That was especially true because my mom’s needs were increasing faster than I could keep up with them.

I realized that my mother needed memory care in a secure, safe setting and chose Emerald Crest because the small, homey environment is exactly what we needed. The programming and resident-to-caregiver ratio helps ensure a safe, comfortable environment.

My mom feels safe and comfortable. She is much calmer than she was before she moved here, relaxed and content. I’m feeling better, too. I am confident that she has a better quality of life.

Dementia robs one of so many things. It is comforting to know my mom is getting the best possible care in a warm and loving environment. Everyone at Emerald Crest shows how much they care about their residents.

I have recommended Emerald Crest to a number of people, and one person has recently moved in. I can’t say enough about what a great community we found. Staff is so competent, thorough and not only cares for the resident, but the family as well.

I felt my mother was in the best possible environment she could be in with a dementia diagnosis.  Staff are very knowledgeable.  My mother appeared happy and intent.
