The place is nice but seems significantly understaffed. There is little initiative on their part until/unless a family member intervenes.

I visited this facility

I've been looking for different facilities not so far from my son's place and Ridgefield Crossings Senior Living is about half an hour from him. The place was immaculate clean. The staff were wonderful, very warm, and friendly. The food appeared to be adequate. They had a varied menu and give three meals a day. They said that they had wood working and art classes, but the wood working shop was a joke. Overall, we just felt that it's not the kind of place that we would go. It was also overpriced.

I visited this facility

Everything about this facility seemed top notch. The main entrance left a bit to be desired, especially with an ambulance blocking it who was picking up someone who had a heart attack. That seemed to set a poor mood, but despite tat the facility was clean, spacious,modern with a gorgeous main living section for those who we able to get up and about- This section seemed more like a retirement community than a living center.

Ridgefield Crossing is a well designed and well run facility. Although he had dementia, as a resident my father appeared to be very comfortable with the facility and the care provided. I always found the staff to be very pleasant and helpful. The layout of the facility, with its center courtyard is very peaceful and well maintained. I especially like that residents can enjoy the outdoors and there is no possibility that a resident could accidentally wander off and get lost. The cafeteria is very pleasant and has a restaurant feel to it. Although I didn't taste the food, it actually looked very appetizing. Entry and exit doors for visitors in the dementia unit are very discreet and require a passcode so, again, the residents are protected from wandering off. Family members are allowed to visit any time of the day or night without notice. The exercise facility has a variety of equipment and is well maintained. The supervising staff of the exercise facility were also cheerful and very helpful. I would easily recommend Ridgefield Crossing to anyone in need of assisted living.
