Dad lived at Emerson House for seven months. The staff provided loving and attentive care for each resident. Rarely did we find Dad in his room when we visited - he was in the activity room. We really appreciated the numerous activities provided for the residents. They could come and go from activities as they chose, if they didn't like one. Even if Dad didn't like one, he usually stayed for the snack. Emerson House is clean and comfortable. Once a month the executive director facilitated an Alzheimer's support group for loved ones of those with Alzheimer's or dementia. My husband and I found those very helpful.

Eric the Administrator could not have been more helpful. He came to the hospital multiple times to assess and really understand my Mother's needs even though Emerson House didn't even have a vacancy at the time. Unfortunately Mom was discharged and had to go elsewhere but the guidance he provided was invaluable and his extreme knowledge and passion in dementia care was obvious. Thank you very much for your time and effort Eric, our family is grateful!

I'm an Elder Law attorney and in my business I have the opportunity to visit many assisted living and memory care communities and have done so for the last seven or eight years. I've gotten to know administrators and directors in dozens of these communities. Here in Boise, we are fortunate to have many high quality communities. But, it is interesting to note and of supreme importance to know that almost every administrator or director knows Eric, the director of Emerson House, and speaks highly of him personally and of the job he has done at Emerson House. Moreover, I have had clients over the years and at the present with loved ones at Emerson House. Again, they speak so very highly of the quality of life the great effort of the team at Emerson House. It is a pleasure to recommend Emerson House team to my clients and anyone who asks. They are well trained and well disciplined. I have the utmost confidence that your loved one will be treated with the utmost respect and incredible kindness.

Emerson House 8250 West Marigold Street, Garden City, ID Edit your review 1 review Sort by: Most helpful Ed Matthes Ed Matthes in the last week-Edit My mother-in-law was dieing when we brought her to Emerson House. She was 95 years old, had a broken hip and a freshly and untreated broken femur bone in her right thigh. She had quit eating and had quit drinking anything, including water. She had severe Alzheimers. Again, she was dieing, and was on morphine for severe pain. She was as bad as it gets. She was treated with the utmost love and care that could be imagined. Eric, the executive director of Emerson house spent an hour or two just explaining to us how Helen would fit in at Emerson House. You cannot imagine how Helen's son and daughter were comforted with the knowledge that this extraordinary facility would provide wonderful care for their severely demented mother...their severely injured mother, their dieing mother. Eric explained how the architectural layout of the facility was designed to calm the fragile minds of those with severe dementias and that Helen would be admitted at noon. Helen was admitted at exactly noon and taken in her wheel chair to the dining area as if she had been having lunch there every day! This was all planned so that she would just assume that this was her normal routine. And she did just that! From there on, she just fit in...with no fright...with no sense of newness...with no fear. It was like she had just come home. Eric, the staff, and their coordination with Hospice was incredible. The hospitality, the kindness, the alertness, the superbly trained staff, and the overall and constant loving service from ALL employees was just marvelous. Helen's adult children, her son and daughter in law, and her grand daughter, and her son-in-law all all are immensely thankful to Emerson house for providing Helen with a place and the service for her to comfortably and safely spend her remaining days on earth.
