I am/was a resident of this facility

I've been to Emeritus at Kingsport and I will not go back there. I was able to say there for a month. The food was terrible. They are short of staff, but they were trying the best that they could at that time. All in all, they need to hire more staff.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My mother-in-law is now at Emeritus at Kingsport. They chose this one because my husband's sister lives in Kingsport. Also they have a couple of aunts who have lived there for quite a while, so they were very familiar with it. They like the staff. They like the way they are taking care of her there. She has a little apartment with a sitting area and a small kitchen, but they provide her meals. She also has a bedroom and a bathroom, and off the back, she has a little walk-out porch where she can go out and sit. Her apartment overall is fine. They also have activities. She plays dominos and cards. They have classes and church services. Right now, it is an adjustment for my mother-in-law, but overall we are really pleased with this community.

My mother–in-law is at Emeritus at Kingsport. The sanitation is very good. She has a good room; its size is adequate. It's also clean and well kept. Food is adequate as well. However, they could have more skilled help for the number of patients.

I visited this facility

I was impressed with Emeritus at Kingsport. We did go there for my parents and it was one of our options. Their staff appeared nice. We didn't have an opportunity to eat that day, but it sounded like they have a reasonable options as far as choice of the meals that residents would like. Their rooms were smaller and there was a lack of privacy between two rooms. I didn't think they have doors between two different rooms. That was something we wanted so each parent kind of have their own room. Their living environment was nice but it wasn't open like the one they're living in right now.

Emeritus was extremely nice. They staff was caring and stayed in contact with me. But distance wise, the place wasn't suitable for our needs.

When my grandpa was a resident here, he was always treated well and very respectfully. He was in the army when he was younger and they had a nice sign on his door that mentioned his service. They put up photos for him and were always very patient even when at the end, he was often irritable and quite cranky.I always felt that the nurses cared about him as a person. They were extraordinarily kind to my parents and me when we visited, and I often observed interactions between staff and other patients that seemed to be the same great level of care my grandfather was receiving.Regardless of the level of care someone needs, this is an excellent facility. Even the more advanced care units still has a "homey" look to it, and they strive to make everyone, patients and visitors, feel comfortable there.

I visited this facility

I highly recommend the Emeritus assisted living facility in Kingsport. It is a very beautiful stone building with a well-kept inside. Emeritus is within driving distance of Johnson City and Bristol, which makes it convenient to commute to and from caring for the elderly when I am stationed there as a caregiver for one of my clients. It is a bit more expensive than most, but definitely worth the extra money to provide a place like this to the elderly who needs frequent assistance from someone to do daily activities.

Visited this facility

I worked with an Alzheimer's patient in this facility and was impressed by its cleanliness. The housekeeping staff were quick to respond when this patient had an accident in his bathroom. The rooms were more like tiny apartments, very comfortable and private. The lunch I observed being served appeared enticing and well-balanced. I would highly recommend this facility.
