4.7 / 5.0

I love it. It is so clean. It is not only designed perfectly for the older individuals but also the handicap person. The rent is so reasonable.

4.4 / 5.0

Everything about Emerald Village has been all good. Depending on the age of the residents we would recommend and refer it to someone 70 and over. The Food offerings very small currently. Maybe Poker instead of bingo with restrictions.

4 / 5.0

The building my brother is in is very clean and the people are friendly here. The staff helps if he needs it he is in the independent living side. He's meeting friends and is at ease. It is well landscaped on the grounds. There is transportation he can set up if he needs. He is very comfortable here...
