Independent Living Reviews for Cahaba Ridge Retirement Community

December 28, 2017

By Sharon

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

Both my parents are living at Cahaba Ridge. It is delightful. We are completely pleased with it. The apartment is big. It is a 2-bedroom-2-bath with a laundry facility. It also has a small kitchen. It is a huge stepdown from having a big house, but it is perfect for my parents' needs. Since the property is brand new, it is also sparkling. It has granite counter tops. It is very nice. They have prayer groups, Bible studies, and a garden club. They also provide transportation to appointments. The problem with this community is that it is only half-full because it has just opened, so it is going to take awhile for some of the activities to get going. However, the staff is very professional, incredibly pleasant, and friendly.

I visited this facility

I will be moving soon to Cahaba Ridge. It's beautiful, the staff was very helpful, and I was pleased with everything I saw. They had a health club, a movie theater, and some dancing there.
