Terri, Your feedback about your family's experience at Emery Place is appreciated and taken very seriously. I invite you to reach out to Emery Place's management company, Senior Housing Management, to discuss your concerns further. It is always our goal to provide the very best care and highest level of freedom for every resident, while keeping them safe in their own apartment as well. It is certainly not our intention to make anyone feel the way you have described and we hope that you'll give us an opportunity to discuss the situation further. Your reply would be appreciated at 800-366-6716. Thank you very much.
