Pleasant Ridge Manor is a very good establishment. I felt their Alzheimer's floor was good. My dad has not complained; the food seems to be adequate. They have karaoke and trivia. The only thing I can say that they need on the Alzheimer's care unit is a nice common lounge for the patients and their visitors to go to, something that’s very comfortable with maybe televisions and a relaxing atmosphere. They don’t have any common area where you can sit and relax other than the main dining area which is the wooden chairs with the hard vinyl, and you’re in with everybody else which is fine, but sometimes you just want an area where you can relax. They need something that would be more a homey setting because they lack that homey setting. That’s the only negative thing I can say. Everything else, I’m impressed with.
I didn’t have a good attitude going into it. At first, I criticized everything I saw, and each time I went, my vision changed, and there’s nothing to complain about. He gets good care. They know what’s going on at all times. You can ask as many questions you need to ask. You never feel like you’re bothering the staff.
I would recommend the Alzheimer's unit; it’s very plain, but everything else about makes up for that. They have a very pretty gazebo in the middle of the unit. The unit is like a big circle, and I have to say it looks very nice so there’s a nice place for them to go when the weather is warm.
