Ridgewood is good. They offer both independent and assisted living. What you're paying for is only two meals a day rather than three. They have plenty of programs. It doesn't feel as homey as some of the other places we went to see.

I am/was a resident of this facility
I am a 100% disabled airforce combat veteran. I served in Vietnam from 1969-1970. I have some medical problems that altered my sense of well-being over the last three years. The entire staff has been there to aid and comfort me when I need it most. I have been in other assisted living facilities and Ridgewood far exceeds any of them.
Thank you for your wonderful review and thank you for your service to our country! We are so happy to hear how much you like Ridgewood.

I recently was given a tour of Ridgewood by Holly. She came in on a Saturday for me, as I have no time during the week and was bombarded with the stress of finding my parents a new home ASAP. Holly sat with me for over two hours. She gave me a tour and introduced me to the other staff. Ridgewood was amazing and needless to say, I'm moving my parents there. Knowing that my parents are going to be happy and well taken care of, makes me extremely happy.
Thank you so much for your fantastic review! We are so excited to have your parents moving in to Ridgewood.

I have visited Ridgewood multiple times over the past year and I must say I become more impressed by this place each and every time I walk in the door. I was especially impressed by the Director. I witnessed multiple times her love and compassion for the lovely residents who call her community home. She goes out of her way to build a lasting relationship with her staff and residents on a daily basis. Everyone looks happy and like they really enjoy being there.
The community always looks awesome. Especially around Christmas! The maintenence department is always freshening up the building in new and creative ways!!!
If I was looking for a place for one of my loved ones this would be the first place I would call. Some places say they care and take the residents needs first, but this place actually does it.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review of our community. It warms my heart to hear all of the wonderful experiences that you have had while visiting. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

The place we went to is Ridgewood. Primarily, it was close and highly rated, so those were the two reasons we went there. The rooms were very nice and very large. My mom likes most of the food, and there are more choices and selection. The staff is very friendly and very helpful.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review and the kind words about our team! We are so happy to hear that you and your Mom are enjoying Ridgewood. We really strive to ensure that each resident Loves the Way They Live. Please let us know if there is every anything we can do to help.

This medium-sized facility, which offers independent and assisted living, memory care and also accepts hospice, is quite new"”built only a few years ago"”in a three-story building, which has an open, modern and sophisticated feel.
It's very well maintained, clean with no odors"”and best of all, management here seems to go of the way to increase services as residents' needs changes; there have been almost seamless moves between independent and assisted living when residents required more care. The entire facility is coded for security"”and nicely decorated with fresh colors and furniture and a large elevator that contains seating.
The people who run it are very easy to work with"”and seem to be attuned to residents' needs. Their intentions are good"”and they work together well.
One area of the facility is apartments"”studios to two-bedrooms for independent living; all have walk-out balconies.
The common areas in the place include a craft room, library, lounge areas and dining areas with open windows and open seating; the residents often use these spots to gather and mingle. There are also activities scheduled, including weekly outings and a movie theatre for entertainment.
The quality of the food served seems good"”with at least two options daily. Residents' particular likes and dislikes are accommodated willingly.
The assisted living staff is especially diligent"”checking on residents frequently, offering almost skilled care. That level of care allows some residents to age in place where the residents considers home"”and gives some help to family members. There is a sufficient level of staffing. One of the clients I have here who lives in assisted living and is very introverted feels extremely comforted and understood by the staff, which is a very positive sign.
Ridgewood may be the most comfortable fit for those who are fairly well educated and upwardly mobile"”and who are able to move in while they are in fairly good health.
The cost, for private payors only, is around $4,000 to $5,000 monthly, with added charges if more care is needed.
