y dad is a resident of Emerald Oaks. It's not exactly the most beautiful rooms, but they're adequate, nice enough, and spacious. But the staff is just fabulous. They all just love working there and they like working with the elderly. And they've been very helpful. When my dad was sick and I had to go get him and take him to the hospital, they had him waiting for me at the front door when I got there. The food is really good. They have a very personable chef. He greets my dad in the morning, "Hey, Bob. You want your usual omelet?" He knows exactly what he wants. My dad talked to him when he first got there, and he said, "you know, you're cooking these vegetables too much. They're too mushy." And so, he fixed that. I've eaten there several times. We just had a party for 27 family members for my dad's 90th birthday. And they served the food and provided for 27 family members. They have great entertainment. One night a month they'll have a location-based theme for their evening. One night they had Hawaii, and so they show a film about Hawaii in the theater, they had four hula dancers perform, and then they go and had dinner of Hawaiian cuisine. They did another one on Brazil, too. So, every month they do a different one. They have a lot of different entertainment things that are going on there all the time and the residents all seem to love it. The rooms are average, but the main areas are really pretty. It's patterned after a cruise ship so they try to provide entertainment like a cruise ship. They have ice cream machines 24 hours a day like cruise ships. And they have snacks out 24 hours a day, juice, coffee, and things like that. Even if it's not mealtime, they can go down at midnight and get a sandwich, hard-boiled eggs, some pudding, Jell-o, or cookies. They were playing wee bowling in there when we were having my dad's birthday party and they were having a blast. They play cornhole and bingo. They always have something going on. They bring people in and do different types of music presentations. And they have an antique car show, where they bring their cars to the facility for the people. They bring in different animals, like dogs, for the residents to pet. Every time I go over there, there's something. They have people in the hall selling jewelry and different crafts and things. They have crafts for the residents and puzzle rooms. They do not have a swimming pool, but they have everything else that I could think of that older people would want to do. It's not the cheapest place, but it's worth it.

It's been a very positive experience. Some of their activities include different card games like hearts & bridge, as well as bingo. My apartment is one of the smaller apartments, but we do have a front room, a kitchen, and a bedroom. If and when we have visitors, they have common areas where we can sit and talk, like the library. They have couches and chairs that are out of the way from everyone else. The community allows pets; they also offer transportation to appointments and their weekly store runs with a 24hr notice, as the bus only holds 14. I would certainly recommend Emerald Oaks to others, it's one of the best.

An excellent community for mom, dad, and/or your special person who deserves compassionate care and a great quality of life. 5 stars! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Laura
Emerald Oaks Retirement Resort
I would rate 5 stars for everything for Emerald Oaks because they're seriously top-notch. They have all the same amenities, but they had a yard that people could fence off a little portion for their dog. The residents that live there are all super friendly. I would feel like my mom wouldn't be lonely there. Everyone was super social and super nice. They talked to me, and they joked with the gentleman who was giving the tour. They provide all of the meals, three meals a day, and they even have more options. You could get room service. They have a library, a theater, and a place where they can play games. The staff is amazing.

This place is amazing it has so many things to offer for senior. Once you walk in it's class and beauty. They have a dining area that looks like a four-star restaurant I've seen a few apartments in here they are all very nice the floor plans are well thought. Are understanding when it comes to modifying the apartment a little like adding walking bars around the place. Overall this would be a wish list destination when it's time for me to retire

My Mom is a resident of Emerald Oaks. I just wanted to let you at Corporate know how appreciative I am of the work Luis and Judy Pardo have been doing at Emerald Oaks during this COVID lockdown period. I have been FaceTiming with Mom twice a day to check on her. She meets the criteria for the 'most vulnerable' and understands the importance of the stay-at-home order. She has been raving about how delicious the food has been, how wonderful Judy and Luis have been and the other staff members are truly remarkable. There was even a time last week when we were FaceTiming and the 2pm snack showed up! I got to say Hi and thank Dawn, one of the dining room staff who was serving that day, and watch how safely the food is passed. Kudos to you all! Thank you for the nearly immediate action taken to protect my Mom and the other residents there by locking them down and delivering their food to their apartments. My husband and I live in California and it would have been nearly impossible to come and help her (especially with the no visitors allowed). I also appreciate your weekly email updates. Seeing how well Mom, and the others are taken care of, just warmed my heart. I really enjoy visiting her a few times a year, as the staff is always top notch, friendly and innovative in their service to the residents. Therefore, this extended level of care and protection was not a surprise to me. Thank you again for your care and concern for all your residents! I am grateful and wanted to give credit to you, Judy and Luis Pardoners and their team.

My mother resided here for a year and a half. She loved the activities. The individuals who worked there treated her like family. I would highly recommend.
