“My mother moved into Emerald Springs, March 27, 2014. I live out of State and the decision to move Mom was a tough one for both of us. I have been overwhelmingly impressed by the facility, management and staff. Mom is settled and happy in her new home with her two cats. I can return home next week feeling very comfortable about her well being! I have spent an enormous amount of time with Mom as she has been settling in so I have observed the environment in all settings. I can speak confidently about the authenticity of the staff and their commitment to working with residents to ensure a high quality lifestyle. This is a great establishment.”

“The rooms at Emerald Springs were very nice and very clean. They had several activities that my mother-in-law would have been interested in. I believe they have arts and crafts where she would learn painting. One of the big things we liked about them was that they provide transportation when she has appointments. The dining room was really nice, and the food that was on the table looked very good and appetizing. It was put together very well, and they have well-rounded meals.”

“Our mother has been at Emerald Springs for 3 years now, and it’s her “home”. She has a beautiful one bedroom apartment, with wonderful people taking care of her as she needs it. When she first arrived there, she was able to take care of her own physical needs, but we wanted someone else to control her medicines for her. Since then, she’s needed more and more care, and as she needs it, they notice, and give it to her. They’re now helping her shower and dress, making sure she changes clothes daily,and helping her get ready for bed. They noticed that she doesn’t participate much in activities, so they make sure she gets out of her apartment and communicates with others by coming for her at meal times, so she avoids isolating herself. And their food, oh, I can’t say enough about it; it’s not the pablum we all think of when we think of “nursing home” food. They don’t just have a cook, they have a chef! The meals always have salad and soup offered if you’d like it, besides the dinner which includes your main course along with vegetable. I enjoy eating there with her, more than I do some of our finest restaurants around Yuma. Junior’s (the chef) chicken fried steak is better than Texas Roadhouse! If you don’t like anything on the daily menu, you can ask for something else; as long as it’s something a standard kitchen would have in stock, they’ll fix it for you. And we love the fact that although there are mealtimes, you can come down to the dining room anytime between 7am and 6pm and have something to eat, or get a snack. Other places we looked at had “set” times you could eat, and if you missed those, too bad. If you have to ask for occasional changes in your loved ones care, be sure you repeat your request more than once. As staff changes for off time, we’ve found that things are not always documented when first requested, and are not always passed on to the incoming personnel. The only issue we’ve had that was ongoing for any length of time, was a problem with her laundry not being done when it should have been. It kept being skipped, and even when we called, it would be skipped again at the next scheduled date. Not a deal breaker, as it doesn’t have a bearing on her personal care. Mom is shown nothing but the utmost kindness and respect, from the knock on her door before they enter, to the way they talk “to her”, not over her, even though she has dementia, and can’t always make her own decisions.” – Loving Daughter in-law

“For the past four and one half years Emerald Springs has been a practical and learning experiance for us. We left our four bedroom and three bath home for our two bedroom apartment which is attrative and pleasant. The grounds are lovely which enhances the looks of our apartment as they are park like with lovely lawns, bushes, trees annd flowers. This is a good fellowship of residents where one canbe busy if they wish to be . I do the Resident Councils’ Monthly Minutes, do the shorthand, typing on the computer and have them read for Managment Staff and all the residents the next morning. I collect the money from all residents who wish to contribute, keep all the records, including all the banking and writing the Christmas checks for the 60 plus employees by early December. Those of us who contribute is for all of our hard working employees. Many times i get the correct telephone numbers for new residents for Emerald Springs telepone book or changes in numbers if nessary. Our Activities Director provides us with a great amount of enterprising projects. I enjoy the exercise each morning, keeps an 88 year old woman’s exertion rate high. We have excellent programs, several each month, singing groups in the Jade room and our very popular Wine and Cheese social in the Queens Court withich includes fun singing groups. Have birthday and icecream socials for the birthdays each month,have popcorn ond day a month and have Current Events Each Friday that includes gourmet coffee and donuts. We have a bus that takes us to and from church of our choice on Sunday mornings. Iy takes us Shopping and to the Bank on Tuesdays and Saturdays and to doctors, dentists and other requirements on the other week days. The dining is a perfect area. After all of my time here, it still reminds me of a lavish hotel’s fabulous restaurant. Our food is excellent. We have a good selection of foods to choose from. Ther are seven othert selections a person can choose from if the menu for that day doesen’t suit him/her. The Dining room has pretty vases of flowers on each individual table and each holiday the entire dining room is decorated for that special occasion. I am pleased to be here as my husband passed away after we were here for four years. I can’t explain how good the Managment Staff were to me. Each one of them came individually and expressed their concern for my loss and I recieved a lovely bouquet of flowers from them. We have great residents amd they surely showed their concern too. With all these wonderful things done for me, I have nothing but love for my Emerald Springs Home.” – Becky Anderson

“My Mom moved in 8 weeks ago and we were surprised 3 weeks ago with a terminal cancer diagnosis. The staff and caregivers at Emerald Springs have gone way beyond our expectations in assisting in Mom’s care. They are loving and gentle with her as they assist us in this unfortunate premature journey. Mom’s comment is that she wishes she had moved in sooner so she could have enjoyed the residents, staff and caregivers for a longer period of time.” – Deb Clabaugh
