Mission: 

Emerald Communities has provided assisted living for people with memory loss in small home-like settings since 1996 in our Independence Houses. In January 2012 we opened an end of life care home, the Autumn House, for individuals on Hospice. We’re looking for caring and compassionate volunteers to join our team in helping to enhance the quality of life for our residents with memory loss and provide support and comfort to those facing the end of life.

Comments: 
We do have all volunteer applicants fill complete an application and we do background checks with State Patrol and APS/CPS. I do a brief interview and tour them at the house of their choice or where we have the most need.
