My mother, was a resident at Emery Place until her passing. The care she received was phenomenal. She lived in the Assisted Living apartments and enjoyed everything. She met many wonderful people also living there and staff members as well. Having someone to come in and clean for you and do your laundry! Wonderful!! She loved taking bus rides to parks or wherever. Just taking rides made her happy. The “Dare to Dream” program that Emery Place has, has a very special place in my heart. Why? Because my mother got to go up in a hot air balloon ride and I was right there with her. Seeing the look on her face and watching her as she looked around in awe brought tears to my eyes. I have Emery Place to thank for that!!! My mother is gone now, but I have soooo many wonderful memories of her living there. With Halloween approaching, I think back on her dressing up in costumes for their Halloween festivities. What a hoot!! Fun is what it’s all about! My only regret is that she didn’t have more time there!!! – the family of Lottie

My parents were some of the initial residents at Emery Place moving in June of 2015. Mom lived in the Memory Care Unit and my dad moved into Assisted Living to be close to Mom. From day one, my parents were treated with compassion, respect and kindness. Even in my mom’s last days, she received the utmost care. The employees constantly took the time to get to know my parents and their needs. Dad has continued to live at Emery for the past three years and constantly tells me how comfortable and safe he feels there. Our family feels extremely lucky our parents moved into Emery Place five years ago and are grateful for the exceptional care they have received! – the family of Bill

My Mom started living at Emery in August of 2018. Simply put, she absolutely loves it at Emery. The friendly, dedicated, and caring staff look after her every need. Her room, and the entire facility, is always very clean. She loves the food, especially being able to make requests. I really appreciate the level of communication provided. Monthly newsletters keep me up-to-date, and it is nice to see her picture included every month. I also appreciate how Emery keeps me informed on any medical issues, or something as simple letting me know that she needs something for her apartment. How Emery has kept everyone (residents and staff) safe and healthy during Covid-19 has been amazing! Overall, I couldn’t have selected a better place for my Mom to live! – the family of Beverly

My parents began living at Emery Place 3 years ago. I have been impressed that the office staff and many caregivers have been there since their move in date!! This really helps build a family atmosphere in the community and allows the staff to really get to know each and every resident as a person. They know their histories and interests which made my parents feel special. In addition, during COVID they have went the extra mile to balance safety and fun. We participated in a car parade and they had several theme days where the staff worked in costumes to bring joy to the residents. But my personal favorite has been the patio visits over the last several months ❤ Emery has been a blessing for our family. –the family of Bonnie & Max

Mom moved into Emery almost 5 years ago, already. She’s 92, and has been very comfortable calling Emery her home. She loves the “independence” of having her own apartment, and is able to interact with others at her choosing, or just be cozy inside reading her daily newspaper. The care she has received is top notch, and the staff all very friendly and helpful to her, and to the family. I appreciate the fact they have kept her safe through all the pandemic the past 7 months as well. She enjoys mealtime and the fact she can have things custom made to her needs and wants if desired. I don’t have to worry about her on a daily basis, because I know the expert and caring staff is there to watch over her when she needs something. Thanks Emery! – the family of Marilyn

Never in a million years would I have thought my Mom would have liked being in an assisted living facility but she absolutely loves Emery Place in Robins, Iowa. She has been there about 7 months and is always saying how good the people are to her there. She also loves the food and has added a few much needed pounds. Emery has done a great job managing the COVID crisis and keeping the residents active. Mom is in a much better situation now. Thanks a bunch, Emery Place. – the family of Darleen

Our family is extremely happy for the care our father receives at Emery Place. It is truly a blessing to know that he is in a clean and happy environment where he is offered well-balanced meals, interesting activities and lots of smiles and hugs! If it is time to find your loved one a nice “home” other than their own…. Emery Place is an excellent choice. – the family of Max

It was a really hard adjustment for my father-in-law to not be on his own at home, but the staff has been wonderful in the transition. Now he is very comfortable about the people and place, is eating and likes the food, and has established friendships with staff and other residents. It is a relief to have him feel good and be healthier than he had been for the 3 years before the move to Emery Place. – the family of Larry

Emery Place is a wonderful community. The staff really cares and gets to know their residents and their families to create a home like environment. Elders are unique and the staff interacts with them as individuals getting to know their life story and interests. They encourage the residents to join in on activities they know they will enjoy. My dad is a fiercely independent 89 year old with Parkinson’s disease who has a tendency to push his limits. The staff does their best to respect his intent to do things himself while keeping safety in mind. Emery’s closer care “early ALZ” memory wing has been a blessing as it allowed us to keep my mom with ALZ with my dad. They share a lovely two bedroom apartment. We give Emery an A+ – the family of Max & Bonnie

My father and his companion have been in Emery Place for the past 10 months. He has considered it home since they moved in. I think they have literally saved his life by the close attention to his health. For someone who has been so independent and feisty, he has willingly accepted their assistance and care, and enjoys the attention. Both of them have participated in the activities, when they are able. Greetings from the friendly staff are sometimes the high points of their day. It seems like the staff does so many of the little extra things to brighten the their days. Overall, we have been so impressed with our father’s and his companion’s care at Emery Place. – the family of Max

My mom had lived in assisted living for 3 years prior to us moving her to Emery Place. We were needing to find a facility with memory care and knew right away Emery Place would be a good transition for her. Still being able to have her live independently, the assistance they offer is perfect for her needs at this point. Having nurses on staff along with medication management is great. They become the liaison between mom and doctors and manage all her medications and administering them when needed. The staff is so caring and become like family to the residence. I would highly recommend Emery Place to anyone needing to find assisted living for their loved one. – the family of Florene

When my mother could no longer live alone in her condo and needed daily assistance, we wanted to find a place in which she could be comfortable, safe, and cared for. In other words, we wanted a place she could call home. First impressions are always important: visitors to Emery Place are greeted by beautiful décor, the bright dining facility, a lovely, inviting lounge, and welcoming gathering spaces for extended families. The most important factor in choosing a new home for Mom, however, was the staff. EVERY member of the team at Emery Place is empathetic, compassionate, and personally invested in the residents who live there. Mom has been at Emery Place since August, and members of our family visit daily. We know first-hand how the dining wait staff anticipates her meal choices because they pay attention to her favorites. We know that everyone on staff calls her by name and stops to engage her in conversation. On those occasions when she has had to summon help from the medical or managerial team, someone is there immediately to address her needs. I know it was difficult for Mom to accept the life changes brought about by her advancing age and a need for greater assistance in her daily routine, but I am forever thankful for Emery Place. I am forever thankful that she is well cared for by a staff who treats her like family. I am forever thankful for her new home. – the family of Jorita

My mother originally stayed at Emery Place for respite care after breaking her back. Kudos to the staff for being incredibly caring and helpful in her recovery and facilitating her move back home. A couple of years later my mother had a fall and suffered a brain bleed and a subsequent stroke. My family and I have such faith in Emery Place and the folks there are so nice; it was an easy transition back. Mom was happy to return as a permanent resident. They provide a clean, comfortable environment with plenty of activities, good food, exercise opportunities and personal service. They address all aspects of her well-being. We are very happy with Emery Place and would highly recommend them. – the family of Jorita

My mother has lived at Emery Place in Robins for going on 3 yrs. It is so comforting knowing that she is taken care of in such a wonderful way. She loves the activities and entertainment they have. The drives around town & parks, going out for lunches at different restaurants They have a “Dare to Dream” program that is awesome! My mom was gifted a hot air balloon ride, that was unbelievable. The staff is so great! She has made many wonderful friends at Emery Place. We’re so glad that we found this place for our mom! – the family of Lottie

My Grandmother recently moved to Emery Place and she is SO HAPPY. I haven’t heard her laugh or seen her as mobile as she has been since moving in. Her only wish is she wants to move to bigger room now! HaHa!! She loves the activities, says the staff is so nice and she gets to stay as busy as she likes. The place is so clean, smells fresh and from my visit I can tell she chose the right place. – the family of Jeanette

My Parents have been residing at Emery Place for a little over a year now. It is comforting to our family to know that they are not only cared for, but cared about. The Staff is very responsive to any concern we may have and very reassuring as we navigate the unknown related to Alzheimer’s. – the family of Max & Bonnie
