We visited East Ridge Retirement Village, and we were very impressed with the facilities, but we felt it was rather too expensive for us. We were shown two apartments; both had two bedrooms, and they had been newly decorated. I myself preferred a bath to a shower. Apparently, they were all showers, and all the toilets were wheelchair heights, which I didn't find comfortable, but those were just my preferences. The staff seemed helpful, and they spent a lot of time showing us around.
They showed us the gym, and there was man watching television and walking on a treadmill there. There were people in the library. One was doing the jigsaw puzzle, and the other people were reading. They had a computer room and an auditorium. They showed us the menu, and I had been to a luncheon that they organized in a hotel a few weeks earlier, which I imagine would be typical with what the residents would be eating. The food was very nice.
One thing with East Ridge, you pretty much buy your apartment, and then you pay a monthly fee in addition. It was independent living, you transition to assisted living, and then you transition to full care when you're really old. I liked it very much, but I don't think I could afford it, unfortunately. They had a swimming pool. They had nice landscaping with trees so you could walk around if you wanted to walk. It was very nice. I would certainly go if I could afford it. They had maid service once a week. They would change the linens and the towels.
