“We moved my mother, into Emerald Bay Retirement Community two years ago, after her husband passed away. This was the best decision we ever made for and with her! She now has a wonderful social life, playing bingo, Wii bowling and on occasion, enjoys Friday night happy hour! She loves sharing meals with 3 or 4 other ladies at her table every lunch and dinner. We no longer have to worry about finding someone to take her to doctor appointments or grocery shopping or if she is eating well balanced meals. All her medications are ordered through the nurses station and delivered right to her. Her laundry is done perfectly every week and returned to her either folded or on hangers. Her one-bedroom apartment is lovely and kept spotless by Kathy, one of mom’s favorite staff people. Not only is the facility itself beautiful but the staff is the best! From the bus driver to the cleaning staff, nurses to activity directors – you couldn’t ask for better qualified, kinder or warmer people. Finally, the director does an amazing job coordinating the staff and has a hands-on relationship with every resident. She has always been available to us to answer any questions or concerns. My husband and I live in North Carolina, so it’s comforting for us to know that my mother is in such loving and capable hands, when we can’t be there. We would highly recommend Emerald Bay Retirement Community to anyone.” – Sandy T.
“We were very impressed with our initial meeting and information session with Michael. He Was compassionate, professional and informative. The facility is great! It is spacious, welcoming, and has many features and opportunities for the tenants. There is so much to do to keep the tenants busy. Many people from my mom’s previous city ask us why we chose to move her 30 miles away. It’s quite simple… Emerald Bay is worth the distance! This is now her home, where she feels safe, and where her new friends live!” – Cindy M.
“We had looked at several other assisted living places and felt that Emerald Bay met all our needs. They took great care of my husband, and when he passed, I decided to stay. I feel very safe and taken care of. The entire staff is so friendly and helpful.” - Myrt F.
“I chose to move to an assisted living community because of my age and to be closer to family. My sons and I were looking for an environment where I could be as independent as possible, yet in a safe environment. After visiting four other facilities, I chose Emerald Bay for various reasons - including being close to my son, beautiful environment, unusably pleasant staff and reasonable rates for services received. I do not regret my decision and I am glad I made it. I have had a few health problems since being here at Emerald Bay, and I was more than pleases with the care I received. I have been at Emerald Bay for 4+ years and I would recommend to anyone to check Emerald Bay out before making such a major decision. “– Onie R.

“The two most significant reasons for choosing to move my mother to Emerald bay were: (1) how very understanding and patient both Tabatha and Michael were to work with, and (2) how roomy and beautiful the building is kept up. I love how you decorate for Christmas and the spaciousness of the entryway and eating area – very welcoming; along with the cleanliness and size of the individual rooms themselves. If someone I know was looking for a retirement community for their loved one, I would certainly tell them Emerald Bay is their best option. I know cost is always a factor, but the cost of Emerald Bay compared to other retirement home establishments in town is comparable. Also, in addition to the reasons listed above, we LOVE the aides and care-givers that you employ. They truly care about my mom and treat her with respect and kindness – that is worth everything to me!” – Faline V.
