Emerald Crest Memory Care Minnetonka, MN

Memory Care Minnetonka, MN

At Minnetonka Emerald Crest by Augustana Care, seniors will find thoughtful memory care in an assisted living setting where each individual’s personal preferences are valued. Our assisted living services help residents with tasks like dressing or showering and are tailored to their needs. Through specialized training and individual senior care plans, we partner with residents to maximize their abilities and encourage independence, enjoyment and opportunities for success.

A structured daily program includes exercise, music, crafts and more. In addition, on-site visits by professionals who provide medical and therapy services offer convenient support for physical concerns. As with all Augustana Care programs, memory care also includes spiritual support for residents and families.

Residence Director Tess Smith, RN

Tess-SMith-web.jpgI have worked in healthcare since 2000, starting as a nursing assistant (CNA) and going to school to become a licensed practical nurse (LPN). I continued working as an LPN while I continued my education and graduated from Excelsior College as a registered nurse. I then became the director of nursing at an assisted living and memory care community for five years before accepting the residence director position at Emerald Crest of Minnetonka.  I am excited to work at Emerald Crest because of its home-like setting and programs tailored to residents at different cognitive levels. My favorite part of working with older adults is learning about their lives and listening to their stories.

I began working with older adults at Presbyterian Homes and Services as a housekeeper at Beacon Hill. I then worked at another Presbyterian Home campus as housekeeping and engineering manager, filling in as the environmental service director. I truly enjoy my interactions with the residents here at Emerald Crest - Minnetonka. The wealth of knowledge the residents have to share is fascinating!
