Emerald Crest Memory Care Victoria, MN

Memory Care Victoria, MN

At Victoria 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 Victoria Staff

Residence Director Tess Smith, RN

Tess-Smith-JMP_1126-web.jpgI have worked in healthcare since 2000, starting as a nursing assistant (CNA) and going to school to become a licensed practical nurse (LPN). I continued working as an LPN while I continued my education and graduated from Excelsior College as a registered nurse. I then became the director of nursing at an assisted living and memory care community for five years before accepting the residence director position at Emerald Crest of Minnetonka.  I am excited to work at Emerald Crest because of its home-like setting and programs tailored to residents at different cognitive levels. My favorite part of working with older adults is learning about their lives and listening to their stories.

 

Occupational Therapist Michelle Gray

As an occupational therapist at Emerald Crest, I assess the cognitive and physical abilities of residents. This information is shared with the team to assist with care planning and educating staff about techniques to best support each individual. I received my education from Saint Catherine’s University and have enjoyed working as an occupational therapist for the past 23 years. Personally, I know how difficult it is to see a loved one affected by dementia. I lost my mother to Frontotemporal Dementia and my father was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. I’m truly honored to work with residents and families at Emerald Crest.

Campus Nurse Macky Schmitt, RN

Macky-Schmitt-JMP_1105-web.jpgI have been practicing as a nurse for 20 years and have a passion for sharing and developing relationships with patients and residents. I am especially drawn to older adults and interested in addressing their unique needs. Working at Emerald Crest by Augustana Care of Victoria allows me the opportunity to enjoy what I love to do—learn from and about people in our community.

Quotes

For over two and a half years my husband was a resident. A former nurse, a good friend of mine, went with me to look over memory care facilities and, after a few moments at Emerald Crest we both agreed this was the place for Chuck. I was happy to visit there and observe their daily activities and how they engaged the residents and how caring all the staff was. I have even visited after my husband's death, because I wanted to see staff people again. We couldn't have made a better choice.

— Alice, wife of resident
