Continuing Care Retirement Community Reviews for StoneRidge

You may visit many active retirement communities or continuing care facilities, read all the reviews and brochures, etc. but until you actually move in, you’re never really sure you’ve made the right choice. Two weeks after we had moved from Westchester, New York to StoneRidge in Mystic, Ct. we knew we had made a home-run decision. How? First, we had arrived at the time of a community celebration commemorating 15 “Brilliant” years of operation.. Our apartment overlooks a beautiful “Green” where a huge festive tent was erected for the gala. We joined the residents and staff for a glorious event - “Founding Pioneers” (residents and staff) were honored, music and dancing were continuous, the food was better than any elegant country club wedding and speeches with personal stories abounded. Residents and staff were proud and happy. The next week we attended a Scholarship Awards Evening organized and hosted by the Resident Scholarship Committee (contributions are received and given anonymously annually). In an overflowing auditorium, about 20 young staff members sat on the dais proudly facing the audience. Each was introduced by the Chair of the Committee, told the audience where they were going to continue their education, in what discipline and with what goal. These were young people who serve the residents daily in the dining rooms and special facilities. They were grateful and proud - as were all the residents in the auditorium. Bottom line? Because of these two events, we quickly discovered the life affirming, unique culture of mutual respect and appreciation between the staff and residents that infuses everything at StoneRidge. We are grateful to be here. Join us!

StoneRidge - People and Place We are in our second year living in the StoneRidge community and we love it! We decided several years ago we wanted to be in a Life Plan community when the older of us reached 80 and while we both were in good health. Between us we have five children living in four states - two out west. We explored communities in those states but ultimately decided on a location and community of our choice. Our first visit to StoneRidge stood in clear contrast to others we visited - because of the residents. There is a palpable warmth and vitality of community here among our residents and staff. It is seen in all the friendly greetings and conversations, and in the broad participation in the extensive activities offered here and in the greater Mystic area. We brought the four-legged member of our family to this pet-friendly community, which is well-managed for the happiness and safety of all. We chose our apartment home on the ground level for easy access to outside. This CT/RI area along the coast is abound in beauty, history, culture, cuisine and recreation for us, and for our friends and family who visit. The services, amenities and activities here at StoneRidge, including the dining venues and delicious meals, make each day a carefree, option-filled opportunity to live life in the fullest.

Dear Charlie, Thank you for your favorable comments about the StoneRidge Community. It is our good fortune that you and your wife, and your fur-baby Casey, found your way to Mystic and our Community. In two short years, you and Laurie have made such a positive difference here; from committee leadership; to facilitating discussion groups and even starting a StoneRidge band! Your positive energy truly helps makes us a gold-standard in LifePlan communities across the country and a great choice for retirement living. We appreciate your endorsement and recommendation! With kind regards, Kathleen Dess Executive Director

My wife and I have been residents of StoneRidge since August 2018. I require a motorized wheelchair and could no longer live in our home. We spent several years visiting most of the independent senior living facilities in CT before making our choice to move to StoneRidge. We are very pleased with our choice. We have found the residents and staff here quickly made us feel at home. From the minute we arrived everyone went out of their way to make us feel welcome and a part of the community. There were new resident orientations, dinners and many social events that helped us fit in. Residents come from a wide range of backgrounds and are intelligent and engaging. We are making many new friends. We modified our apartment to facilitate my wheelchair and the StoneRidge staff assisted us in planning the construction. We used Caring Transitions to help us downsize, move and set up our new apartment. They eliminated most of the stress with our transition. There is a wonderful pool and gym with staff to keep us active. StoneRidge provides me local transportation with my motorized wheelchair which is a great service. The food is wonderful. We have a choice of a full meal at lunch or dinner. Plus, a glass of wine or a beer. Our children and grandchildren love visiting us and using the craft room and pool. There are several guest apartments which are reasonably priced for our overnight guests. Mystic is a wonderful area with lots to do and everything is within 15 minutes by car. Making the decision to leave a home of many years is difficult. In our case we feel we made the right choice to settle at StoneRidge.

Dear David, Thank you for sharing your positive experience regarding your move to StoneRidge. We are honored that you and your wife chose StoneRidge as your new home. You both are such a welcome addition to our community and we are most grateful to you for sharing your experience with others who may be considering StoneRidge for their active retirement living. Thank you. Very best regards, Kathleen Dess

The building is a carefully planned structure and is well maintained. Administration is receptive, responsive and forward looking. Present executive director is a sweetheart whom you hope will be there as long as you are. Campus was thoughtfully landscaped and is carefully looked after by both in-house staff and outside contractors. Availability of covered parking is a plus. Food is well prepared and there is a wide variety of choices in two venues (plus outside in summer). Dining room staff are pleasant, obliging and caring beyond their youthful (average) years. The fitness center manager is super and her activities extend far beyond the pool and exercise room. Community life services has organized a huge variety of activities on and off campus for those who are not yet at the couch potato stage, ranging from card games and movies to the Great Decisions program of the Foreign Policy Association. Environmental services is highly dedicated to maintaining cleanliness of resident and public spaces and has quick turnaround of those items accepted for laundering. The available garden plots are just big enough to get your hands dirty without generating anxiety about being able to take care of them. The associated nursing facility (Avalon) speaks for itself with a 5 star rating.

A friendly, upbeat community in a fabulous location. This is a place for living. Your kids and grandkids will love visiting. Lots of things to do every day without leaving the premises. Exciting volunteer opportunities in the greater community of Mystic are available at the Seaport and Aquarium too. Great food, good friends, nice apartments different sizes. Lots of financial options.

They have beautiful apartments at Stone Ridge. It was quite gorgeous and didn't feel like a nursing home. It feels like a senior living place. It is just a really beautiful place.

I would love to live at StoneRidge. It is wow. It is a different model from everything else. It is very expensive but magnificent. You have assisted living, you have long-term care, you have rehab. The food is delicious. Their facilities are elegant and beautiful. It is unbelievable.
