Memory Care Reviews for Ridge Manor Residential Memory Care - Canton

May 07, 2021

By Debbie Walker

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

I am so glad we found Ridge Manor. My mother was previously in a larger community that was owned by a big company. It focused more on fine dining and movie theaters. Only shortly after my mom fell and fractured her hip we realized that she needed much more care that they could not provide. Ridge Manor had much better oversight with their 1:6 caregiver to resident ratio and personalized the care by doing activities and cooking foods that my mother enjoys. The owners are hands on and frequently visit the facility. This is definitely one of the best decisions I have made.
