Quotes

The layout of Emerald Crest is terrific, its like visiting a home (not the hospital hallway, with a small lounge on the end!)  The health care model of Emerald Crest  is “OUTSTANDING”.  The professional staff provide care with love, hugs, and individual attention.  The caregivers were of the same mode.  We were fortunate to choose Emerald Crest for mom!

— Gary, son of Emerald Crest resident
