I visited this facility

Emeritus is lovely, but it still wasn't home. I met a couple of members of the staff during our walkthrough. They were very helpful, and they gave me a lot of information. They gave me an activity calendar, and I saw some activities going on in the group rooms. They gave me a tour of a couple of different rooms, and they were very neat, organized, and clean.

It was a very nice facility and it was more for the upper class. They did it right. It just was not a good fit for me. It was just a little upscale for what we were looking for. I did not see very many residents there, most of them were in their rooms. It could have been the time of day I went there but the ones I had interaction with liked it there. The staff were friendly and professional. I like their apartments. It was spacious and very well decorated,. You have to provide your own furniture though.

Emeritus turned out to be on the spendy side and the place isnÕt large enough for the two of us. It was a lovely place for a single person to move in but the we wanted a little more square footage and the price for what they have was a little out of reason.

The staff at Emeritus were very nice and polite. The food was also very delicious and tasty. However, it had a very institutional atmosphere. I was just not impressed by the place.

The Emeritus is the best in our area. They have big rooms and the people are very nice. We have a friend that is there now and she speaks very highly of the food.

I love this facility. It offers some of the best care in the county. I really feel welcomed in like a member of the community when I go to visit my father. I am able to attend his daily tasks and routines and see how much he enjoys living here. I could not have picked a better facility to put my father in. He is very happy where he lives, and after visiting I know he is well taken care of. He has even met a lady friend. My dad is genuinely happy at Kingsley place and I think that I made a great choice choosing to put him in that assisted living facility.
