I visited this facility

Emeritus is a very nice facility. The staff member who assisted me was very professional and knowledgeable. The rooms were very spacious compared to other facilities. They have the gamut of activities. The dining room was very pleasant and comfortable. The residents who were eating and dining there seemed to be enjoying each other’s company.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

We chose Emeritus because it is nice. The room is a standard room. The people are apparently pleasant and know what they are doing. I have been getting good reports, and I haven't heard any complaints at all so far. However, I will suggest for it to remodel because the outside of the facility doesn't give future prospects a good impression

I visited this facility

Emeritus was a nice facility. It was very clean and very well kept. It didn't have any odor. The staff was friendly. The dining area and the rooms were nice. It looked like it was an active community. However, it was kind of expensive.

I visited this facility

Emeritus at Dover invited me and wife to come over for a lunch or dinner. The service was good. The people were very pleasant and friendly. The facility was a little bit old and needs repair. It reminded me of an old hotel that had been picked and turned into a facility that's being used as an assisted living place, but that wouldn't stop me from going there as I liked what I saw and I like the people.
