Here are some of the most commonly asked questions from residents and families.
1. How do I access the Wireless Internet?
Search for available Wi-Fi networks and click on the one called ERC_Guest. Once connected, open the Internet. At the prompt on the screen, hit the grey button that says accept terms. Once you have done that it will redirect you to an Evergreen Thank You page and you are then connected to the internet.
2. How will I get my mail?
If you live in the Village or Evergreen Homes, your mail will be delivered by the Post Office to your private mailbox. If you live in the Manor Apartments, Courtyard Apartments, Garden Place or Garden Terrace, mail will be sorted by Resident & Guest Services staff and placed in your locked mailbox in the Fireside Lounge. Mail for all other residents will be sorted by staff and delivered right to your room.
3. Will I get a newspaper?
If you desire a newspaper subscription, you must order it directly from the newspaper. If you live in the Village or Evergreen Homes, use your personal address and it will be delivered to your building or home. If you live in the Courtyard, Manor, Garden or Creekview Buildings, use the Front Office address, 1130 N Westfield Street, and include your apartment or room number when ordering. Then notify Resident & Guest Services that you will receive the paper. If you live at ShareHaven, provide the ShareHaven address, 1095 N Westfield Street, and alert the staff that you have ordered the paper.
4. What should I do if I have questions about my appliances, TV, cable service, temperature control, etc.?
Our maintenance crew can help you learn how to use your appliances, cable services and other equipment as well as assist when things go wrong. Submit a work order through Worx Hub or call (920) 233-2340 to schedule services.
5. How do I get private telephone service?
You may want a cell phone for convenience, or you may prefer a landline. In either case, if you’d like personal phone service, please make arrangements directly with your provider of choice.
If you choose a landline, some providers will encourage you to purchase a package that includes Internet service. Keep in mind that Evergreen provides free wireless Internet on our campus, so it may be a duplication of services. Evergreen’s wireless Internet is redundant which means we have two different services online at all times and when one fails we automatically switch to the other connection. But there is the chance that on occasion our wireless service may be interrupted. Internet service through your phone line would not be affected at those times, so you may feel there is some benefit to having your own Internet service through your land line.
Two providers offer landline service on our campus:
AT&T – (800) 288-2020
Landline service through AT&T should cost $15-30 per month, depending on the options you choose for local and long distance calls. The salesperson will try to up-sell you to the U-Verse package, which includes Internet service. If you firmly insist on landline only, and if the representative will not give it to you, then you may have to ask to speak to a supervisor.
Spectrum – (866) 874-2389
Spectrum offers landlines and landline packages that include Internet and expanded cable options.
6. What if I have a problem with my phone?
Please contact your personal phone provider for problems with your phone. If you notice a problem with an Evergreen phone located in common areas or in Creekview Rehabilitation Center resident rooms, please report it to the Front Office or the Creekview Rehabilitation Center staff.
7. Can my family or friends visit overnight?
Yes, your guests are welcome! Evergreen has a guest house with two bedrooms (one with 2 twin beds and another with a double bed) that can be reserved for family or friends of Evergreen residents. Contact the Resident & Guest Services at (920) 233-2340 to make a room reservation. If it is not available we are very close in proximity to many nice hotels.
8. How do I reserve a room to host a personal gathering?
Evergreen has several room options for you to host a personal party, meeting or other gathering. There is no charge for reserving a room, but it is important to reserve the appropriate space as early as possible. The Trellis is a private dining room in The GardenSide restaurant and accommodates up to 24 people. The Behnke Center is located in the lower level and offers space for larger gatherings. With the adjoining Commons kitchen, it is convenient for preparing and serving food. Several meeting rooms in the lower level are also available, including the Resident Community Room, Elmer Harvey Room and the larger Rowland Rooms. Contact the Resident & Guest Services at (920) 233-2340 to make a room reservation.
9. How do I order food to go or for delivery?
Menus can be viewed online for The GardenSide restaurant & Pub67 in our resident portal under the dinning tab and you can place an order either in person, by phone or online. If you are placing your order by phone please call: (920) 237-6263
