Emery Place receives two Iala awards
by Report submitted · September 7th, 2017

With just two years of operation under its belt, Emery Place in Robins has already made a name for its community and a reputation for being one of the very best choices in Iowa. As a two-time consecutive "Best of Assisted Living" winner, Emery Place has not only been recognized by Senior Housing Management for its occupancy and operational success, but also by those who live at the community.

A year after opening, it was apparent that Emery Place would need to construct additional apartments to continue to meet the needs of it's growing waiting list. Through the addition process, the community maintained a consistent 100 percent occupancy and was able to create a seamless transition of move-ins once the addition was opened.

Emery Place has become a staple in the Robins community and it is not out of the ordinary to see the logo on the front page of the local paper. From over-the-top community events and wildly successful fundraisers, to innovative programming and residents' Dare to Dream program, Emery Place has that something special that often speaks for itself.

Each year the Iowa Assisted Living Association (IALA) hosts an annual conference in Des Moines to provide educational opportunities, information on the latest industry trends and products, and to recognize "star" individuals and communities.

This year, Emery Place had the privilege to be named 2017 IALA "Property of the Year." While there are many notable communities that deserve recognition, Emery Place has the track record and the positive support behind it worthy of this distinguished honor.

As if that wasn't enough, Emery Place's very own Life Enrichment Coordinator, Misty Cottrell, received the "Hero of the Year" Award. Cottrell's countless efforts and dedication to the Emery Place residents are evident in her everyday activities. Cottrell helps to meet every resident's needs for varied activities, transportation and fun outings. Families shared their heartfelt comments in this nomination and coworkers appreciate, respect and admire Cottrell in all that she does to make Emery Place a joy in which to live and work. She continuously goes "above and beyond" in everything she does and is deserving of this honorable recognition.

Emery Place Assisted Living and Memory Care is located at 901 S. Mentzer Road, Robins.
