Testimonials

Howard sitting in chairIf you ask my wife, Helene, how she liked it at EagleCrest Commons she would say, "I just love it here! The people are so friendly, helpful and kind." Since my wife is by nature an up-beat and positive person, it gives my son and daughter great comfort to see her surrounded by a friendly and helpful staff. 
 
Having the essential caregiver program gives me the opportunity to spend more time each day with my wife. Our family and the staff recognize how cruel extended isolation can become. Having contact with our loved ones is a God send. 
 
We cannot overstate our observation of how the entire support staff have developed such a caring and supportive climate at the Commons. The minute I walked in the door I am greeted warmly at the front desk. A huge added responsibility has been unloaded on the leadership and staff because of Covid-19. They are navigating through these tough times with courage and strength. 
 
My son Andy has dealt with much of the financing, medical and care for his mom. He has a good cooperative relationship. He helped find the Commons after Helene's fall and we are grateful to have her nearby and well cared for. 
 
We would be the first to recommend this wonderful place. ~ Howard Hass


My sweet and loving 83 year old mom had a fall down some stairs just over one year ago. My sister, Dad and I determined it would be best for her if she found an assisted living place, as she also started showing some minor indications of Alzheimer’s. We are so grateful and lucky to have the peace of mind we have with the staff at EagleCrest. Mom says to me almost every time I talk to her, "What a nice place it is," or "they are all so friendly," or "thanks Andy for finding me this place." I truly feel they genuinely care for the wellbeing of my wonderful mom! ~ Andy Hass


First, my 91 year old mother loves this place. We have been separated because of Covid 19, but I talk to her frequently each week, and each conversation usually includes her telling me how lucky she is to be living at Eagle Crest. Over and over she tells me about how she came to get her unit when she and my brother visited a little over a year ago. She tells me to emphasize how lucky she was. She likes her unit and the food. She misses communal dining and, like all of us, awaits the time it will return. She loves the staff, and I mean virtually everyone. That includes administrators, people who deliver the food, and the guy who regularly helps her with the channel changer for the TV after she miss programs it or hits the wrong button. Second, my siblings and I like it too. Especially during the pandemic, there has been frequent, clear communication. We, too, have found a friendly staff and good listeners when we have had a concern. We all want to be independent as long as we can, but if a time comes when I can no longer be on my own, Eagle Crest would be fine with me. ~ Greg Weyandt


Eagle Crest in Roseville has created a wonderful, homelike atmosphere for my mother in both assisted-living and memory care. She says frequently she can’t imagine a better place to live. As a family, we couldn’t be more pleased with the support, kindness and compassion offered to us. Particularly in this pandemic, when all resources are stretched thin, Eagle Crest has gone above and beyond expectations. ~ Anne LeDuc


Jeanne-Weyandt.pngLots of times, when you are told you should look for an assisted living place, you don't know where to go. I am writing to tell you about the place where I live now. I came to visit a couple of friends of mine and had a good look at the place. Its name is EagleCrest. My son and daughter-in-law brought me here to look it over. We went into a room that lost its owners and was being renovated. My son said "Mom, you're crazy if you don't move in here." So, we paid a deposit and moved in a few days later.

I have lived at EagleCrest for a little over a year. I decided to live at EagleCrest because the dining room was nice, and the scenery around the building was beautiful. My favorite thing about living here is the place is clean, the food is very good and the employees are so nice (they know your name!). My favorite activities are socializing, exercise, sing alongs and sermons. My favorite meal is the fish. I would recommend EagleCrest because the building is nice and clean, the employees are welcoming and they provide wonderful care. ~ Jeanne Weyandt

Gene-Kennedy.pngI have lived at EagleCrest for 8 years in August. We were living in our family home, but my daughter lives near here so we made a transition. I believe the Holy Spirit brought me here. There are many things about this place I love, but here are a few (in no particular order).

1. We have great privacy in our apartment.
2. All of the residents look fantastic.
3. Our employees. We have the finest group of employees that we could have. Just this morning someone said “I look forward to coming to work”. They treat us with dignity and compassion.
4. Variety of activities.
5. Leadership. Dani runs a good ship where people feel comfortable bringing concerns forward.
6. We have rules around COVID and we are kept informed.
7. We have a good community of residents here. They become like our second family.
8. Pastor Kurt is amazing. He gives his full attention to anyone he is speaking to.

I would recommend this place to anyone. ~ Gene Kennedy


Arla-Savage.pngArla Savage is a resident who just hit her 6 year anniversary. When asked what first brought her here, she stated, "EagleCrest had accommodations for everything that I was looking for." She also recalls there is a friendly, pleasant atmosphere she was drawn to. Arla enjoys many things here, but a few of her favorites are the food, the staff, the residents, and last but not least: the Arbor courtyard. Activities are also a high point for her. She states that she enjoys going on scenic drives as well as bible studies with campus pastor, Kurt Linn.
 
"For all these reasons, I recommend EagleCrest as a great place to live!" ~ Arla Savage


Dee-Savard.pngDee Savard was a resident at EagleCrest for almost exactly two years. She came to our community on September 20th 2018 and passed away on September 30th 2020.

When asked what Dave, her son, would say about EagleCrest to potential residents. He explained, “By putting my mom here, it allowed me to sleep better at night. EagleCrest is like a second family to me and my family. It is the little things in life that matter most to people. For example, how Nick in culinary knew how much she loved oatmeal. When you look at other senior living communities, you don’t see much choice offered to residents. At EagleCrest my mom had so many choices.”

When asked what he would like to say to EagleCrest staff: “What don’t I want to tell EagleCrest staff? Thank you. Please keep showing the love in your work, I could always feel the love. I didn’t only lose my mom when she died, I lost my other family. The last moments of her life were so memorable. The staff treated us and her so well. It was like they were going through it with us. And the bedside memorial, hearing the stories from staff and sharing our stories, it was beautiful. Thank you." ~ Dave Savard


Ethel-Carr.pngWhen I first visited EagleCrest, I thought for sure one day I would move here. I liked the atmosphere. When asked what I like most about living here, its hard to answer. Not because there isn’t anything to like – it's because there are so many things. Everyone here is so kind and friendly – from the aides, to the servers, to the administrative staff. I love playing bingo and exercising. Additionally, they never serve food I don’t like. My favorite meal to eat is breakfast, especially the waffles with a slice of bacon! I would recommend EagleCrest because of the great care you get and the overall friendliness. ~ Ethel Carr


I have lived at EagleCrest for a year and a half. I was introduced by a friend who lived here and recommended it to me. I was immediately drawn to the Christian atmosphere, and the welcoming staff. My favorite activities include chime choir, exercise, and chapel. I love all the food, but my favorite meal is breakfast. The eggs are delicious! I would recommend EagleCrest due to the friendly staff that work here! ~ Jean Brede


My 91 year old mother lived at the Eaglecrest Terrace for four years, before moving to the Commons for the past two years.  It has come to be her home, a place where she feels known, welcomed, and cared for. On many levels,  the physical space, the social community, the care of the staff,  the spiritual support, Eaglecrest has come to be what I had hoped it would be in these years when she has had to face losses in her independence and in the people, places, and activities that had been part of her life.  And particularly in this year of a pandemic, I have appreciated how her family has been welcomed in continuing to play a vital role in her life as essential caregivers.
 
A recent experience illustrated what she, and I, respect about this community.  After a brief hospitalization, she found herself in a transitional care facility, unaffiliated with Eaglecrest.  After 3 weeks in the new facility, her experience was that they did not understand her needs, so were not responding to what she needed to regain her health. The staff at Eaglecrest offered to come to her facility and assess her readiness to return to her assisted living in the Commons. In spite of having more significant needs than when she went into the hospital a month earlier, a plan was made to support her return home, with my wife and I included in the process. She felt welcomed, wanted and supported. That's what you need in a home, and she's grateful to have one. ~ Bryan Kingsritter
