I am a friend or relative of a resident

I was very pleased with the lady who showed us around Emerald Meadows. She was very informative and very helpful. The rooms were small, but I guess that's standard for assisted living facilities. The dining room was very nice. They have a good variety of activities to interest every resident, including a TV room, puzzle room, and a library. They celebrate all of the holidays and engage all of their residents.

I visited this facility

Emerald Meadows seemed very nice and clean but was considerably more per month and more luxurious than what my mother needed. It seemed like the menus were very good. We talked with the manager there who was very nice and very pleasant.

The entire staff that I met at Emerald Meadows really wanted to be there; they enjoyed what they were doing. My mom is in a private room in the memory care component. They have two areas -- one was more assisted living and the other was memory care. Memory care just means a locked-down facility to me. The room is beautiful, and she has beautiful views. The room is quite large at about 260 sq. ft. She has a full bathroom in her room, and they did provide some furniture and could have provided more if we wanted, but we decided to do our own shopping. They are attentive to our needs and concerns. One of my biggest concerns was my mom’s acclimation moving from one facility here in Mexico to another in Grand Rapids, and I’ve heard all kinds of rumors that once somebody has full-blown dementia or Alzheimer’s, it is difficult for them to find some comfort. However, those rumors were really axed after two days. I felt she was completely engaged in the program, which was something new for me. I haven’t eaten there, although my sister has and she said the food was good.

Thanks so much for the great review! We’re so happy that your mom is comfortable here. Our memory care program is designed to keep people engaged — physically, mentally, and socially – and give their families peace of mind. If there’s anything else we can do to assist your family, please let me know!

My loved one stayed here

My Grandmother has been at Emerald Meadows of Cascade for approximately 18 months, and I highly recommend it!! My family, as well as my Grandmother herself, could not be happier with the quality of people and care there! I am very impressed with the loving, Christian enviornment that Emerald Meadows has provided, and continues to provide day and night!

My loved one stayed here

Emerald Meadows appears to be a beautiful facility. Until you allow your Family member to live there. My mother was there for over two years and many medication errors occured. They are never fully staffed, sometimes there are 2 resident aides to fourty people. The Administrator Kathy is very rude. She promised us the world and all we ever had was problems. Some of the staff are wonderful and my mother loved them but since the change in management it has went down hill... Please check out other facilities. You do get what you pay for.. The food is horrible and served cold. They have an activities director but they never do activities. My mother's shower days were tuesday and Friday, and she would call every week when she wouldn't get her Tuesday shower.
