Assisted Living Reviews for Benchmark Senior Living at Ridgefield Crossings

My father has been a resident of the Benchmark at Ridgefield Crossings for over a year and we are very happy with the facility, the staff and the opportunities that it has provided Dad in the form of community, friendships, activities and safety. After being diagnosed with dementia, we needed to find him a place with social interaction, thoughtful service and little cause for worry. Ridgefield Crossing has succeeded in being that place for him and we cannot say enough about the staff that their helpfulness and caring. I would certainly recommend that anyone with a need for assisted living consider Ridgefield Crossings!

Ridgefield Crossings has been a home away from home for my mother in law. Coming from NYC and moving to the country was an enormous change and the folks at RC went over and above to see she was comfortable, happy and secure. She has made many good friends and now considers it her home. The food is fabulous and the nurse aids compassionate. Five stars!

Ridgefield Crossings has been home for my Mom for the last 2 years. She has been extremely satisfied with everything that the Crossings offer. . The best part of Ridgefield Crossing is the caring staff. The resident caregivers and nurses have been incredible. The one thing that I notice about the staff here is that they treat my Mom like family. This is always a very comforting feeling, knowing the staff cares so much about the residents. They are very attentive and check in with her all the time. They provide the perfect balance of assistance and encourage independence to her comfort level. Ridgefield Crossings also does an amazing job providing fun activities for the residents. The have an entire staff dedicated to offer an array of on-site activities like exercise classes, arts and crafts, music and games. They also have different occasions when musicians come in and entertain the residents. In addition, they provide all the transportation needs for their residents, whether it is getting to church, going to the store or even getting to a doctor’s appointment. Overall, I am very thankful to the great staff of Ridgefield Crossings. They have given my Mom a wonderful, safe and healthy home. Keep up the fantastic work!!

Benchmark Senior Living at Ridgefield Crossings was very nice but very expensive. The staff was very helpful and informative. Everything was very nice and topnotch. The person who gave me the tour had coffee for me. The rooms were good, nicely appointed, comfortable, and adequate. People are well taken care of.

It was very nice and gave us an idea of what a facility is like. The staff was very friendly, answered our questions, showed us the different parts of the community, and were very helpful. We saw the dining room. We had lunch there and saw the different areas where they have recreations. The facility is three stories high, and we saw the common areas and several of the different apartments.

My mom is here, and it’s really an excellent place. It’s a little bit pricey, but the reason we picked it for my mom is because as your health deteriorates, they don’t kick you out. We saw their dining room, but we were not able to sample the meal that they were serving. They did have a nice spread for us, though, of cookies, fruits, and cheeses.

I went to visit Ridgefield and liked that the people were very nice. The staff was really wonderful, caring, and couldn’t do enough to assist and help. I really liked the place a lot. They had a lot of activities, like chair. The apartments are very small and without views. One room looked out on a wall. They are very expensive for my mother.

It was lovely. It was very, very nice. It was excellent. The location is not what I'm looking for, though. Also, I looked at one apartment with two bedrooms, and I thought that might be what I would need, but it really isn't, and it was not really appealing to me. The facility was clean. It looked to be well maintained. The activities seemed to be well planned. The dining room was very nice, and there were lot of people in the dining room to take care of the guests. Ridgefield Crossings was just a very nice place. It seemed to be very well run. They showed me list of things that they do for the month, and what was on the list was interesting. It seemed to be activities that I could participate in, but not my husband, so that's another thing. I wouldn't be able to be there with my husband. Other than that, it was fine. As a matter of fact, I met one of the ladies who lives there. She has a lovely apartment. She can come and go if she pleases and partake or not in the activities. For somebody who is alone, it is ideal.

Provider Response

It was beautiful. They had very nice people and a very nice ambience; everything was nice, but they wouldn't take my brother-in-law. However, the staff was very nice, very friendly, and very helpful. The residents were all into their activities and enjoying them. I also saw the dining area. It was very nice. I was so sorry my brother-in-law couldn't go in there.

Provider Response

Thank you so much for sharing. We love what we do and are extremely proud of our team. Individualized care is one of our hallmarks as we strive to meet the distinct needs of each resident. Please feel free to contact the Executive Director if we can ever be of service to you and your family.

It was the best facility I saw in terms of activities and the quality of the food and the rooms. The cost, however, was too high for my mother. We looked at the one bedroom apartment. The rooms were very clean and modern. They had over a dozen activities directors. The staff looked to be excellent.

My mother was here 7 years ago and she left and went to another facility and then she came back when I needed her closer to me but she's on the dementia floor now. The facility is 20 years old but they keep it very nice. It's convenient and it's a good community. The rooms are very pretty and very impressive. In the beginning, the staff said all the right things but they don't have a nurse there at night time. They had an on-call nurse at night time which is not good for Alzheimer's and dementia units. I have to hire an aide on top of paying all that money. It's expensive and the food is not great.

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

Provider Response

We are very sorry for the experiences you've had at Ridgefield Crossings. Your opinion, as well as the quality of care our residents receive, is extremely important to us. We take our staffing levels very seriously and are very proud of our variable staffing model which is designed to match our team staffing to our resident population and needs. I encourage you to reach out to the Executive Director regarding your concerns as it is our goal to customize care and services to the particular needs of each individual resident.

I've been looking for different facilities not so far from my son's place and this one 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.

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.

The caregivers are warm, caring and patient. They honestly seem to enjoy their work and like the residents.
