Assisted Living Reviews for Heritage Ridge

I visited this facility

I liked absolutely everything about Heritage Ridge Retirement. They had nice, roomy and well-designed apartments. The staff seemed terrific. The dining room and all the public areas were very nice. The menu looked good. The transportation was very good as well as the accessibility to the highway. It was an excellent and a recommendable facility.

My grandmother is currently living there and we WERE happy when there was other management in place... now with new management, we find pills on the floor (which should have been given to my grandmother), they say they clean her room and there is always dust and the carpet never looks vacuumed, and they don't seem very attentive at all. We would look for another place, but the pickings are slim in this area, and we need her to be close for appointments and other things. It is like a catch 22 - Bellevue is really in need of a good, quality, elderly care facility.

Heritage Ridge is very close to my house and that's good but I'm not pleased very much with them. The place is very clean and the nurses and the other people who work there are very good. I'm not pleased with the insurance person, it has taken me more than three months to get any action started on a long-term policy that we had. The people higher up are not so good.

I visited this facility

My mother and I toured the Heritage Ridge Retirement Living. The room that we got to see was very nice and my mother liked it. It was small but she liked that aspect of it. My mom had a dog and they were willing to let her dog stayed with her. We actually sat down and ate lunch with some of the other residents and their food was good. However, when my mother couldn't eat what they brought her, they offered her some other things, which was nice. Their dining room was very nice. It had large tables where four to six people could sit. It had very comfortable chairs. It's almost like eating at home. They also had a large outdoor area that was enclosed and they had raised gardening boxes that people could garden as they chose to. Most importantly, my mother liked the staff. They were friendly, very cooperative, and very accommodating. They understood our situation. She was very excited about moving there, but her health took a turn for the worse and she passed away. She was not able to ever move in.

I have a family member that lived here and this place is very expensive, especially for the care that the residents receive. They are always under staffed but insist that they are fully staffed. If you send your parent or friend here please expect them to not get serviced for atleast 30-60 minutes. On top of that, their food is entirely too greasy. It makes no sense to make the food that they do for an elderly person's stomach. Please pay attention to the company and remove your family member as soon as possible just like we did. They are all about the money!

About Heritage Ridge

Heritage Ridge Independent Living, Assisted Living & Memory Care delivers their mission to design programs to keep tenants independent as long as possible, while meeting their individual needs. With new buildings erected in 2010, the Bellevue, Nebraska facility is equipped to accommodate the numerous activities available to residents. Because a life enrichment program is key in the well-being of older adults, residents with all levels of needs are included in abundant activities and outings. Even those receiving memory care services thrive as they participate in activities along with the assisted living and independent population. "The home is so resident-focused," remarks Corporate Director at parent company Heritage Management Services, Lori Paulsen.

Ms. Paulsen is proud of the diversity Heritage Ridge provides. Because Bellevue is located in an Air Force Base community, residents come from all over the world, with most out-of-towners hailing from Europe. Thus, the facility comprises all ages and is quite a stimulating community. Imagine the number of stories in the number of colorful languages you might hear at the dinner table there! Heritage Ridge's diversity is certainly unusual for Nebraska.

The connection with the Air Force Base community also brings another interesting feature: an observation deck for viewing numerous nearby air shows. Understandably, the general population of the community may find these shows entertaining, but they are especially valued by retired Air Force residents.

Heritage Ridge's enrichment program includes surprising outings such as trips to casinos and shopping, lunches out and even a river boat cruise! Happy Hour is held every Friday with a bartender on board, and the onsite pub includes lockers for residents to store their beverages.

Finally, not all retirement options allow animals, but Heritage Ridge does, realizing that mature individuals find great comfort in their small pets.

Heritage Ridge realizes that keeping all levels of residents together (assisted living, independent living and memory care) maintains the richness of the community and enhances the well-being of those with greater needs.

Words can paint a picture, but nothing compares to seeing with your own eyes. Schedule a tour today!
