Memory Care Reviews for Ridge Manor Residential Memory Care - Calhoun

September 21, 2021

By Patricia1234

I visited this facility

I wanted more of a home environment for my aunt and am so happy to have found Ridge Manor. A few other things that were important to me that Ridge Manor offers are low caregiver to resident ratio, allowing visitors, wheelchair accessible and protective oversight. My aunt is in the late stage of dementia, cannot advocate for her needs and requires more care and oversight than I can juggle with kids and a full-time job. The transition will be easier for her being in a more familiar home environment. I would worry about her being in an apartment-style suite as it would be more difficult for caregivers or for other residents to hear her if she was in need.
