Memory Care Reviews for Emerson House at Riverpointe

November 30, 2014

By sudsucker

I am a friend or relative of a resident

We had to move my father into a place as quickly as possible, and Emerson House had openings right away. We were able to get in within a couple of days. They were somewhat understaffed, and the place is deliberately dim in nature because that’s their philosophy behind people who require memory care as they don’t want to overstimulate them and confuse them. I thought the director was fantastic and then as you go further down the chain, people knew less and were not as useful. They eventually found someone who could help me with whatever I needed. If it’s an emergency, they’ll let me know that day. If it’s not an emergency, they’re giving me weekly updates.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My dad was a resident there for 3 months until his death in Feb. 2010, from Alzheimers. My first impression when I walked through the door to check it out was good. It smelled good, had a nice reception area, the place was clean and the director was very helpful. They made special accomodations for my step-mom to move in too. She was also disabled, but of sound mind.

I visited this facility

The staff is very caring towards the residents as well as the family members of the residence. The food is excellent, as well as the cleanliness of the over all facility. I would recommend looking into this facility if you are in need of Alzheimer/Dementia care.

About Emerson House at Riverpointe

At Emerson House, we know that in order to provide good memory care, it’s essential to understand how your loved one sees the world and how their dementia is likely to progress so that good decisions can be made on their behalf. Knowledge is key.

Finding your way through caring for someone with dementia is a special set of circumstances that calls for a special solution. At Emerson House, we began with an understanding of how a person with Alzheimer’s disease or another related dementia experiences the world and created a community to meet those needs. From our staff, to our training, to the way our building is designed, we’re prepared to provide the best possible care.

Consider This:

For those with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia or other memory impairment, their physical environment is a big factor in how comfortable, calm and secure they feel. Spaces that are too large, with too many people, can be over-stimulating and create anxiety. Communities that are too small typically don’t have the diverse staff that is required to handle a variety of situations.

Complimentary Cognitive Evaluation

At Emerson House, we know that to provide the best memory care, you have to understand the individual cognitive, medical, physical, and social needs of each person. To do so, requires an understanding of how they see the world, and how that viewpoint is likely to change moving forward. Our cognitive evaluation is offered free of charge so family members can understand their loved ones from a new perspective – one of hope and change, rather than one of fear and misunderstanding.

The quality of care you deserve. We take the time to do things comfortably and correctly. Every resident is important to us and quality starts with the time we give to them.
