My father was there in May on a 2 week stay. (my father used no devices to walk, ate on his own, showered on his own very independent) On the second week went to go visit him in the evening and he did not seem ok asked to speak to someone and a girl with a stethoscope came in and said he was fine. I had mentioned he sounded congested she listened to his chest hit him on his back and said he was all clear. After we let the next morning I could not rest so I went there grabbed my dad and took him to GHS he was in full kidney failure ,pneumonia and had lost 12lbs. PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE YOUR LOVED THERE oh and they also put in diapers which he has never worn in his life. We have been going thru a lot of struggles since this and he has been hospitalized for 9 weeks after that now we are going into rehab they are horrible I would not let them watch my dog

I visited this facility
I went and looked at Emerald Gardens. This one I can’t say I was impressed with. It was alright, but I don’t think they have any apartment, and the rooms weren’t all that large. It is an older facility and they did make a point of saying that they’re in the process of updating it. However, for what I want, it is not what I would choose. They were pleasant as far as the tour that they gave us, but what I saw didn’t really suit my wants. The facility was clean. The location was good; it was also near a hospital.

I am a friend or relative of a resident
She is at Emerald Gardens, and it is a very nice and caring facility. Along the time that my mother has been there -- which has been a short time -- they were in the process of remodeling, so they've done some updates throughout the activity area, the dining room area, and along the common areas also. The staff communicates with me, and I live in Georgia, so my mother's assisted living is in her hometown, and they have no problems communicating back and forth with me. And the director -- if I had any questions -- he'll either send me a text message or call me. They've been very cooperative. Their med-tech has worked with me hand-in-hand through my phone just to make sure that my mom is acclimating to the facility. My mom didn't move in until March, but we started setting up her room in February, so we spent the daytime there. I got to see things that were going on, and everything seemed to be fine. I've been to visit my mom several times since then at all different times of the day, and everything seems fine. My mom has family there that goes often, and they haven't seen anything out of the ordinary.
For the activities, they have several different common areas that provide the fireplace area and two other places. At one area -- which is more of a nicer area -- they would have like churches come in or choirs that come in or just a group that organizes time with them that do singing there. They also have Bible studies there. There are different preachers that come, and I guess they alternate Sundays depending on who is assigned that day. They have outings on the bus, and they go to the local Walmart, Rite Aid, or Kmart, but they also have assigned activities or outings that they do, and as I understand it, it is going to get broader in the warmer months. They also play a variety of games; the biggest deal for seniors is Bingo, but in different areas and depending on where, there are like two activities, and they have tables set up so the residents can do crossword-puzzles or board puzzles. They have laze trails -- as they call them -- where the activity director will walk them down the hallways, and it is like an exercise. There are a lot of activities going on.
It was a big deal for me because I am a Certified Nurse Assistant, and I wanted to know where my mom was staying and what was going on, so I did my homework. In all honesty, I would give it a five. We've been over-the-top excited. We visited several places, and we felt more at home and comfortable at Emerald Gardens.
