Our Difference

What makes Emerald Crest by Augustana Care different?

  • Based on a model created by Cognitive Clinical Specialist Theresa Klein to help people with cognitive issues function at the highest level possible
  • Focuses on abilities instead of deficits
  • Utilizes personalized assessments conducted by occupational therapists, assessing each individual’s needs to create senior care that is tailored to his or her unique abilities and preferences
  • Offers a thoughtfully designed structure that helps restore rhythms, connections and routines that may have been lost

To learn more, please see our sections on intelligent memory care, the Emerald Crest model, the Occupational Therapy (OT) difference, and spiritual care. We also encourage you to schedule a tour and experience our senior community firsthand.

Quotes

They call them houses, because that is how it feels, like your home. The activities keep the residents in each house busy every day. My family couldn't be happier with the choice we made to move our mother to Emerald Crest Shakopee.  We feel confident that our mom is cared for and safe.

— Bruce, son of resident
