Customer Reviews

They are great. They are really nice there.

They are great. They are really nice there. The food is good, but they serve a lot of broccoli, and they serve a lot of soup, there isn't a ton of variety. It's a very nice place, she likes her little spot. I like that I am able to take a weekend to myself here and there. We are pretty happy with them.

Kind, caring staff

Unfortunately my loved one was only here a short time, but my impressions from her stay were very positive. It is a nice looking facility, and the staff here were all very professional, gentle, and kind.

my dad

I agree with not great my dad is in the memory care unit now and he never dressed I shower him his teeth are never in unless I put them in. The head nurse needs to work on her people skills. The Monarch is drab and depressing. My dad is always in his room there is no activities. He is showing signs of aggression since he's been there. They say he will never be in his room we keep them active have not seen it yet. He will be out of there soon. They need more training on memory care. The head nurse accused me of bringing alcohol to my 78 year father with alzimers. If they would do there job she could look in his room and she if there is alcohol. But she is to busy making a be line to her office. Well they where bought out by Brookdale so maybe they will get proper training.

We really have had a great experience with Emeritus! The price is definitely fair, and you get a good value! They were close to home, but they also have Memory Care, which we wanted available in the future! Our loved ones have had a positive experience here as well! There were, of course, a few glitches in the beginning, but they were amazing! They were a huge help with moving, and it's been a very positive experience so far!

Not great.

We were not happy with the care or attention that was paid to the residents. They only bathed our loved one once or twice a week, where she is now she gets showered daily. She always seemed to look dirty here. It seemed that nobody brushed her hair. They weren't able to handle her memory care needs to my satisfaction. Since moving her she is much calmer and more peaceful. She is cleaner and better cared for. I don't think Emeritus did a very good job.

Marketing Manager who was very helpful and professional, left suddenly. Other staff not very helpful. After watching PBS Special on Assisted Living Facilities which focused on Emeritus Nationwide, we are no longer considering them as potential.

Our experience has been good

A Place For Mom was really helpful and followed up real quick when we were in a crisis situation. Really accomodating and helpful, so I'd give a five for that.

Staff is Friendly

The overall staff is friendly especially the general manager and the marketing manager. It feels more like a hotel then anything else. Mom hasn’t complained about the food either.

By far the best we've seen. The three stage approach is even better than we anticipated. They also offer an assessment without condition to our 'deposit' - a free service so we know the best placement and care package to start. This is very helpful when trying to plan for a changing budget. Emeritus provided us a printed price list for their base rents and care levels - not provided by Auburn Meadows. Emeritus also offered us the option to use my mom's long term care policy. We have been referred to their partner - Elder Resources Benefit Counseling - who can help us understand her policy and how we can best communicate beginning a claim and helping my mom receive the benefits from a policy she's paid so much $$ into. There seems to be immediate openings both in the assisted living and in the mid-way group. There was no pushing us to decision which we appreciated. They were good about communicating 'we are moving at your pace'. We have decided to schedule the assessment this week and we hope to make a decision soon at either Emeritus or Auburn Meadows. But feel very comfortable with the options we've seen to make a decision for my mom.

Assisted living areas seem very nice, but memory wing felt depressing. I liked it that they take residents to local churches.
