We prioritize the comfort, well-being, and safety of our residents. Your loved one will access comprehensive care, including medical assistance, personalized assistance with daily activities, recreational programs, nutritious meals, and social engagement opportunities. We strive to create a supportive environment that feels like home. Please be sure your loved one has comfortable clothing for at least a week’s worth and rubber-sole shoes.

It’s best to provide us with a list of your loved one’s medications upon admission. Our qualified medical staff will review the list and ensure that your loved one receives the appropriate medications as prescribed by their healthcare provider. Bringing medication from home can lead to potential complications, so we kindly request that you leave this responsibility to our trained professionals.

Please ensure that any electronic devices are labeled with your loved one’s name for easy identification. Also, please remember that such items can be misplaced; if you feel that your loved one won’t be able to keep this item safe, then be sure to keep this valuable item at home.

We recommend that any valuable or delicate jewelry be removed before arrival at Emerson Health and Rehabilitation Center. While we take every precaution to ensure the security of personal belongings, it’s always best to minimize the risk of loss or damage. We provide secure storage options for valuables if needed. Additionally, please inform our staff of any jewelry that your loved one prefers to keep on during their stay, and we will take appropriate measures to ensure its safekeeping. Our priority is to create a comfortable and secure environment for all residents.

We simply ask that you inform the staff in advance so that we can be sure that this is allowed with your insurance carrier.

The frequency of therapy sessions varies depending on your loved one’s individualized care plan. Our dedicated therapy team evaluates each resident’s needs and designs a personalized therapy schedule to promote recovery, maintain mobility, and enhance overall quality of life.

Pets can have a therapeutic effect and often bring residents joy. We welcome well-behaved and vaccinated dogs to visit, provided they are always kept on a leash and under control. Please provide the receptionist with your dog’s vaccination record upon visiting.

Parking facilities are available on-site for visitors. We have a valet service Monday-Friday, 9 AM-5 PM, as well. Please follow designated parking signs and be considerate of designated areas for residents and emergency access.
