"We can still hardly believe our good fortune that when we went looking for a place for Dad three years ago, the perfect place was just two minutes for our own house. His corner apartment has been ideal for him and he's going to miss sitting on his patio in the sun, chatting with passersby. The entire staff has treated him like family."

"We can't say enough good things about the way everyone there has cared for him and put up with the demands of our whole family as we've advocated for him. He has a special place in his heart for Cari, Pat, Leah and Butch. Syttende Mai will never be the same without Leah spoiling him with Norwegian decorations on his door..."

"Thank you so much for being the safe and friendly home we were hoping for three years ago when we uprooted him from his life in North Bend.""

Chet & Chris P.

"Thank you for your generous hospitality in letting us use the private dining room for Mary S*****'s birthday lunch. We received such willing help from you - from the front desk to the servers and cook staff. The lunches were all tasty and presented attractively. Your servers and cook staff joined us, at their request, to sing Happy Birthday to Mary. That was an unexpected treat & honor.

Thank you for the kind and caring ways you treat your residents & their families."

"A year ago on this date we moved into Emerald Pointe. We celebrate today our first anniversary here. What a wise and positive choice to move here has proven to be.

We take this opportunity to thank you, Cari, for the special ways in which you have blessed and enriched our lives by your services, but more especially by who you are."

This note would include all, who in their individual services, have contributed to our well being. Our profound thanks."

Bob & Mary

"Today is my first anniversary for moving into Emerald Pointe and it only confirms what I thought a year ago ~ I made the right choice. This past year has just flown by, and never once have I regretted making the move. Of course, you, Cari and the rest of the staff here can take credit for that. I have watched with respect, admiration and appreciation at the great job you all do and give thanks every day.


"We want to tell you how nice the luncheon was yesterday that Karen and her servers, Frankie and Omari, served our travel club. Many commented on the great food and the beautiful settings. We feel fortunate to be able to entertain in such a special place."

Mr. & Mrs. K

"Lois and I have been residents at Emerald Pointe for over two years. One of our requirements was local ownership and management. Our request has been met, much to our satisfaction. Our apartment feels like home. Lois is somewhat of a homebody, and Bill is one who likes to be out and about and involved. Emerald Pointe allows us to be home together, but follow our own way."

Mr. & Mrs. H


"I love Emerald Pointe, to me it’s “home” and an extension of friends and family. I moved away for a couple months to a new larger and supposedly better place, but I could not wait to get back here. We care a lot about each other and we have been together over four years. I’d invite you to come and see for yourself. Enjoy some cookies and ice cream while you visit. At meetings, the chef listens to our suggestions. If I have a maintenance request, the maintenance staff get it done quickly."


"Everyone is very nice, people are friendly. Services are great."


"After the death of my husband, I felt the need for a change. I considered some other retirement communities, but when my daughter showed me Emerald Pointe, I was very impressed with the reception from the staff and residents. The atmosphere had the feeling of comfort and spaciousness. I loved the décor, the cleanliness, and the many, many nooks and crannies full of activities, such as the full library, exercise equipment, many activities, and of course the favorite spot, the ice cream machine, which is the spot to talk and get acquainted with the others residents. The calendar is full of activities to suit any and all who wish to participate, plus outside trips to see sights, and experience drives in the countryside. My personal favorites are bingo, Wii Bowling, beach ball, exercise, bean bag baseball, and outside trips."


"When we put our house up for sale, I told a friend who lives in Keizer that we now need to look for a retirement home. She saw Emerald Pointe when it was new and having an “Open House. So we came to see it, and decided that as soon as we sell the house, we will move there. We like the prompt help from the staff, the bus driver Brian, maintenance, and the spacious living apartment."

Mr. & Mrs. H

"My husband and I moved here on November 20, 2012. We had sold our house and moved to a residential community in South Salem. We only stayed two months because there were many things we disliked. I can truly say that we love it here at Emerald Pointe. The people are wonderful, the staff is great, and the food is perfect. The facility is beautiful. Living here almost seems like living in our previous home. I can’t say enough good things about it. I hope to spend many happy years right here."
