Independent Living Reviews for Emerald Oaks

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

Emerald Oaks is perfect and exactly what I was looking for my dad. The gentleman I spoke with let me know that there was independent living. They had downstairs apartment that had a patio, and my dad was way better than expected. He is doing great. I looked at him during my last visit, and I said you are not the same person. There are activities, but he just likes being on the porch; there’s a green space, and one of the tenants had put a deer blind back there, and people walk their dogs. The customer service was way out of our expectation. They are not only nice; they go above and beyond which is phenomenal. A few weeks we stayed there, and they had a room for their guest. They give you meal tickets, and you can buy meals. The salon, the medical team, and the concierge are great. They have a huge patio that overlooks the green space and a huge theatre room. They have a bar where the residents can put their own drinks, popcorn, and ice cream. The residents seemed happy.

Emerald Oaks is new, and the people are younger and looking to make new friends. It's better and costs less than what we found everywhere else. It’s well maintained and offers a full kitchen. The food is excellent as per my uncle. The chef comes out every day to talk with the residents to see what they like and don’t like, and they’ll make anything they ask for. There’s food service 24/7 with room service 24/7 free of charge.

Emerald Oaks is a new, impressive, beautiful community. They gave us the tour and we met some of the staff members, who were very pleasant at that time. They had a nice facility with a beauty shop on premises. When you walk in, there's a stone waterfall that was very peaceful. Their food was pretty good. I visited my friend's apartment and saw their laundry room and the other facilities. Some of the rooms had washing machines and dryers in them and some did not. I was very impressed with the apartments. The main problem I found was the distance from my family and from shopping. There isn't much there, at least not yet. They have a movie theater, so they have movies. I think they need to have better transportation. Their transportation is not as good as ours, which I found out from friends that I talked to who live there. Transportation is the one problem over there. If you don't need to go any place or your family is close by, it would be perfect. Things could improve over time with the transportation; at least, I would hope so. And with them, you can only go to the doctors on Tuesdays or Thursdays. They don't go five days a week, so that could be a problem for some people that have to go more often.

I took my mother to Emerald Oaks, and we toured it. She hasn't moved in, but we're very happy with the whole introduction to it and what they offered us for the price and everything she is getting. She is moving into a brand new place and she is very receptive of it. We went and ate brunch there last Sunday, and it was very good -- good portion but not over the top. We went back today to rent her unit and had lunch again, and it was excellent. The residents were all walking around saying we're going to be so happy here and that this is a great place. Everyone I've come in contact with has been great.

We visited Emerald Oaks, which is a new establishment. They just opened up in June. We were very impressed with them. They were brand new. They had plenty of apartments. They were very friendly. They really treated us right. It was comparable with the other facility except Emerald Oaks paid for everything, and there was no extra fee of any type or shape. They have garages available. They have some few extra things including three meals a day, which was nice. They have several open apartments. We were impressed with it. Plus, they have a nice view up on the third floor. Of all the communities we went to, we were most pleased with Emerald Oaks. They had a lot of activities, but the thing is, it was a brand new facility, so they haven't gotten everything up and running yet. However, what they had listed would be favorable to us. The staff was amazing. They were friendly. They went out of the way to help us out in more ways than I can tell you.

What is included in the amount of rent? Cleanliness of facilities. Just things that you would want to be nice for your family member to have or do.
