Independent Living Reviews for Embark at Orchard Glen

I visited this facility

Orchard Glen is a beautiful facility, but it wasn’t to our specifications. It was just independent living, and my sister needed assisted living. The rooms were gorgeous. Everything was beautiful there. The staff seemed very nice.

Emeritus at Orchard Glen was super top of the line. But it was too expensive. I loved it. They did have activities. It was in a country setting, very professional, and very well-decorated, but we couldn't afford to live there.

Emeritus at Orchard Glen was adequate. It was clean, no smell at all. The staff was very nice. The rooms were too small for our purposes but were very nice. They could make it bigger and have rooms for couples.

I am/was a resident of this facility

I like that at Orchard Glen the meals are included and they have housekeeping. They have storage and underground parking. The staff is pretty good, but I think they could use more staff. My room is fine and I love it.

I really like Emeritus. It is a newer facility. They're constantly renovating and fixing it. They have beautiful facilities. I looked at one of their cottages that are smaller independent homes on campus. They have helpful, warm, thoughtful and patient staff. The only thing that held me back was finances because this place was too expensive for me.
