I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident
We're happy with Mom's placement at Ramsey Village. I had very specific criteria I was looking for, and they had those. The staff is excellent, and I can tell they're well-trained in their areas. Mom is in a memory care unit right now and requires a lot of physical help, but the staff works well with the people. I've visited on numerous occasions, and I've never seen anything that's a concern to me. They are fulfilling what we needed for her. They offer several levels of care too, so if she progresses from one into the other, they can accommodate that, so that's another big plus for them.

I visited this facility
We visited Ramsey Village for my mother. It was very nice. The staff seemed very nice too. The rooms were very nice. None of them was big, but they were adequate. I didn’t see as much as activities as the other two places, but they did have live entertainment. The common dining-area was nice. It was big. The facility was OK. It was clean. They were very friendly. It seemed like a safe place.

I visited this facility
My mother-in-law visited and had a list of places to see while she was in the area. On her list was Ramsey Village. Right away, you notice the state of the place. Everything looks pristine from the outside. The lawn care and maintenance was top notch. We are in a drought in our area, but there was no yellow grass, it was well managed. Once we got inside, it was more of the same. The commons room was in great shape. The whole facility was in pristine shape. Some of the rooms had some stuff around, but that was because the residents have more independence. I saw a nurse helping one lady with cleaning, so it seems that if you want or need help with cleaning it is available, but if you want a "lived in" look, you can do it yourself.
The amenities were pretty nice. A major bonus, is that even in a walk through, you can get prices. You don't have to talk to a manger or anything, you can just get a printout with the options and costs. It's very upfront. It was more like a hotel in its style and cleanliness than an assisted living home. Very professionally run. It's very high on my mother-in-law's list.
