My review of Grand Emerald Place (Enlivant)

We were able to do an in person tour twice, the first time there were not covid restrictions so we were able to see the residents out and about. The second time had restrictions and they were actually in a bit of a lock down so we did not get to see the resident. We did however get to see two different model rooms and walk through the different facilities they had. It is a very nice place, but it was just not the right place for our loved one. With her dementia to get to the dining room she would of had to gone from her room to the elevator, downstairs and to the dining room. We were worried she would get lost, and we did not know if someone would accompany her. Also right by the elevator was a stairwell, which also made us afraid if we didn't choose the elevator that she would get lost in the stairwell or even fall.

A Great Place to Put Your Loved One to Be Safe and Happy

It is a beautiful community. The staff take care of the residents, and are great here. They keep the residents busy with activities. They have brain teasers, games, bingo, corn hole, and more for the residents to choose from. The communication with the staff is great. They are responsive to changes and requests. They have a new director in place. My loved one really likes the food.

Great Smaller Community With a Home-Like Feel

We've found they've been very caring about best care possible in a smaller, individualized environment. We were thrilled that they had a good Covid protocol. It seems like Coivid-wise, they're in a good place. They're still offering activities. In the Fall they had a sing along with residents inside, and a couple of family members outside per resident, and they served hot chocolate and cookies. We observed the activities director coming in one-on-one offering crafting activities. The family has been able to go in a couple of times for visits, two of us at a time. We were pleased to see photos of our loved one around the Holidays where she was sitting next to other residents, wearing a little Christmas hat, and she was smiling and looked so happy. That made us feel so good. We love that the staff have fun with the residents, for example doing elf on the shelf. If there are care services they don't offer on-site, they were able to authorize off-site care for her. Once safe with Covid, they'll be offering more on-site services like haircutting, etc. When small issues have arisen, they have been in touch, and we've felt like we've worked through the issue together to a satisfactory result. There's only about 60 units here, with room for about 77 residents, and that really spoke volumes to us about the more direct attention our loved one has received. When our loved one needs something, they let us know right away. Whenever we've needed anything, they've bent over backwards to help.

a good place living

The community closes at 6 pm so you cant visit after 6. The community is good with communication between the staff and the family and they are always quick to call us if we have any questions. I would recommend this community to others

Property is going through a renovation, staff seemed very friendly, but did not offer memory care and at this point would need to be part of the equation.

I talked with [name removed] and this community does not have a memory care option. But [name removed] said their Michigan City community has a dedicated memory care building and [names removed] will call me. Michigan City is too far away but a good memory care option is very important so I’m keeping the MC community on the plate!

Great Events, Great food

My father and stepmother were residents of Grand Emerald for a few years. They enjoyed the food immensely, we enjoyed the great parties and family events put on by the staff. The nurses were always on top of things. It is a great place!

Don't go there

Food is terrible and portions are skimpy. Residents rarely if ever receive their choice from the pre-selected menu because there isn't enough, there weren't sufficient ingredients to make an item, or the cook was "off" and someone else is filling in. Consequently, meat is predominately "processed" and fruit/vegetables are either from a box or can. There is a shortage of staff so basic housekeeping of residents is random or non-existent.

We are so sorry to hear your experience with us has come in beneath our standards. We will certainly share your feedback with our local Nutrition & Dining teams. Additionally, please feel free to call our Enlivant Cares Resident Line if you have any other issues you'd like to discuss or feedback to give. Thank you.

The food was great, [name removed] and [name removed] were very understanding and addressed all my concerns. The entrance fee of $3000 is quite high. My only concern is smell, it smelled like a nursing home and one room we saw had it very strong.

Thanks so much for your feedback, we will certainly take this back to our team. Glad you enjoyed the food!

Very welcoming and caring

Grand Emerald Place is very friendly and caring. It is cost efficient with great care. The staff, as well as the residents, are so welcoming and caring. The food is very good and homemade. The residents genuinely care for each other and seem to have a lot of fun. We are so happy that we found Grand Emerald as a home for our mother.

Good Tour Of This Facility

I had a pleasant tour of this community. Everyone was kind, and helpful to my family, and I. The community looked nice from what I saw. Everything appeared to be well-kept. The staff was friendly, and informative. The experience went well, but I did find another community that suited my mother needs better.

Abundance of food and friendly faces

It is a beautiful and clean community. Many activities for the residents if they want to participate. No complaints regarding the food, they provide ample proportions. The staff is very friendly, but there is a lack of communication between the staff and caregivers. All they needed to do to help my aunt with her physical therapy was to move the wheelchair back so she could do her leg exercises. It seems with my insistence they are communicating more with me, but there are times when they still do not return my calls. Overall it seems they are improving.

The process of moving my dad and stepmother was handled by the community, alleviating the stress for us. The apartment is nice, spacious and bright, staff has been kind and considerate. The food has been a hit with my dad! We highly recommend Grand Emerald Place.
