  • I first heard of Emerald Place through my association/involvement with the Glenview Chamber of Commerce. At that time my uncle was in a facility where there was not much engagement. He basically was looked after for "basic" needs and mainly stayed in room with TV on. He had no desire, and had lost most ability, to communicate and would not feed himself...we thought he was "on his way out". After meeting [name removed] and learning about the type of care and engagement Emerald Place was offering, me and family visited the facility. Were excited at how they engaged their residents and made every effort to get them involved in various activities. SO, the next step was to get my uncle evaluated to see if he was a "fit" . [Name removed] went to facility were uncle was and determined that Emerald Place would be a good fit. About a week later, my uncle moved in. It's been about 5 months now and, WOW, WHAT A DIFFERENCE! There is rarely a time that I visit the uncle is in his room; he is usually in an activity or in a group session, whether it is "arts and crafts", "music/karaoke", "trivia game", "chair exercises" or simply having a discussion on "what's going on"..he is always being engaged. Outside entertainment performers are also brought in to engage the residents. The results have been, to us, his family, miraculous! He converses, he laughs, he even has painted, with a bit of help, some pretty good pictures! AMAZING! He even feeds himself as best he can (has trouble cutting stuff up and with soup). This place has been a Godsend. Definitely the place I would want to be in if I was in the same situation as my uncle, which is a scary thought, but at least I know a place like this exists. GOOD JOB Emerald Place!

  • My husband was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease about seven years ago, and up until November of 2017, he was able to stay at home, with some occasional help from caregivers. At that time, it was necessary to look close to home for a facility that offered only memory care. My specific requirements were that the place had to be clean, the staff had to be trained to engage residents other than a few words now and then, and the accommodations had to be pleasant. Emerald Place opened in December of 2017, and they offered a brand new facility, a young-thinking paradigm toward memory care, a fabulous engagement piece, and the accommodations were wonderful. My husband was one of the first five residents at the facility. His has a sociable nature and the Emerald Place made a perfect fit for him. As with any new facility, as the resident population grew, the staff grew, and I never went to sleep worrying about the safety of my husband. Today, the staff and resident population is still growing, and the care is excellent. The Director, the Community Relations Manager, the nurses, the caregivers, the custodial staff, the engagement folks, and the kitchen staff are attuned to the needs of all of the residents, their families, and to the interactions among the residents and their families. It is a bright and happy home for my husband. He enjoys his new-found friends, and so do I.

  • Best of the best!

    There are simply not enough words to say how blessed and truly grateful I am to the team at Emerald Place. In particular the Community Relations Director and Executive Director are outstanding beyond belief as is frankly the entire team. They moved mountains to help us get my mom where she needed to be, her new home. I say home because that’s what this place has really become for me and my mom. The treatment, care and kindness they have all shown, candidly I was afraid was lost in today’s day and age of elder care. Having already experienced two other places and unfortunately hearing horror stories of others, this place has turned out to be a godsend. Simply put, they have given me my life back. No longer do I worry if she is happy, I can see it all over her face. I don’t worry if she is sleeping as she tells me how wonderful it is to be able to have heat in her room as much as she wants, which I love that the staff always makes sure she is warm and cozy. In addition, not only is the food great but they make sure to help her eat if she needs. For anyone having to face this, I’ve been there and I understand what you are going through. I was in your very shoes so I am hoping this review will help ease your minds a bit because I cannot say enough good things about Emerald! They are simply the best, will treat your loved one the best and will make you feel part of them as they are truly one big family. I will be forever grateful to them!!!!
