A great experience
A few months ago, our family moved my father from a much larger facility to the Empress at Laurelhurst. It was the best move we could have made. The Empress is a smaller, much more connected community; housed in a light, open and airy space (a beautiful design which maximizes the available sunlight in the Pacific Northwest!). The apartments are spacious, the dining hall is beautiful and centrally located, and the amenities (theater, bistro, exercise and activity resources) are top notch. It even has a beautiful roof deck, with great views of the lovely surrounding neighborhood. The facility changed management earlier last year, and the new team is fantastic. Kind, caring, attentive, thorough, interested….and entertaining! In spite of his cognitive issues, our father’s level of engagement and activity has improved dramatically; he really enjoys the activities, both on-site, and day trips. The food is excellent, housekeeping and med staff great. I can’t recommend Empress highly enough!

Peace of Mind!
Over the past several weeks Ive been telling several of my family members about how wonderful Empress Senior Living at Laurelhurst is and how happy Mom is there. Last week we all came to visit Mom so they could see where she lives now. They all said they were impressed with how beautiful and well-maintained the building and grounds are, but they were more impressed by how caring and friendly the amazing staff are to the residents and their families. On one of the mornings the GM was assisting his staff in feeding the residents. We all love Empress, and we are so glad that our Mom is in such a great place.

Very pricey
I toured Empress Senior Living and it was a great tour. The cleanliness and friendliness were both great, also. However, the facility cost is pretty pricey.

Horrific level of care
The level of care and expertise on taking are of elderly is horrifyingly bad. Never put a loved one in their care. Their nursing staff is inept, unkind and unfit to care for residents. My Dad was there for month and the decline in his health due to their lack of care was shocking (lead to spending weeks in the hospital and is now living in a different place). [Speculation removed.]

Empress Senior Living at Laurelhurst offers Studio and 1 Bedroom. Learn more.

A Place for Mom has scored Empress Senior Living at Laurelhurst 7.9 out of 10 using our proprietary review score.

 

We assign review scores to give a more reliable view into senior living communities and home care agencies. Our review scores prioritize reviews that are recent — the past 24 months — because we know families need current information when choosing senior care.

 

Those with many recent, positive reviews receive a high review score, while providers with few recent reviews — regardless of how positive — receive a lower review score.
