Assisted Living Reviews for Hillcrest Silver Ridge

I visited this facility

I come to this facility often as well as other facilities in Omaha and Lincoln area. This is one of the very few places that I go and feel very welcome. The staff and residents always seem so happy and friendly. No staff member is too busy to sit and talk with their resident and help them when needed. They are always doing some fun activity and I feel they go out of their way to make residents feel like family. It has a small community feel which I love and would have my own family members here if and when needed.

I visited this facility

Due to my grandfather’s decline in memory I recently toured Silver Ridge Assisted Living side and their memory side. My grandfather is very particular, so I decided to take him with me on the tour. From the moment we walked in the door we felt like we were home. Lisa greeted us as we walked in and introduced us to everyone right away. I was surprised to see so many residents just walking around and talking to us. I thought that assisted meant that they couldn’t do as much as they used to. Lisa told us that their residents live a very active life style. She showed my grandfather and I their face book page with pictures of holiday parties and everyday events. My grandfather has to have knee replacement surgery in December and Lisa told us that a home health company , would follow my grandfather from rehab back to Silver Ridge where he would have therapy and nursing care until he was independent again. We later met on of the therapist name Caitlynn from Physmed working with a lady and she seemed very nice. She gave us her card and told us to call with any questions. The staff in the assisted living was absolutely great. They were personable and they seemed to really enjoy their job. Due to my grandfathers decline in memory, we also toured the memory units and again I was surprise on how great everyone was. Lisa told us that Silver Ridge would be able to help my grandfather transition through every stage of his life. WE SIGNED OUR CONTRACT THAT DAY!! WHAT A GREAT PLACE!!!

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My grandmother seemed to very much enjoy this facility. The staff seemed rather kind, except for several of the nurses who could at times be incredibly rude to both myself and my grandmother. The rooms were kept incredibly clean and a maid service even came once a week or so. The food was decent, served in a large dining hall, but nothing spectacular. My grandmother's room had a small kitchenette, which allowed her to cook small meals for herself when she was unwilling to leave her room. The facility had a gardening area, which was great for my grandmother. Her biggest concern about moving from her home to an assisted living facility was her ability to garden. My grandmother did not partake in many of the social activities that were offered and sometimes she felt like she was forced by the staff to too often interact with other residents. She often attended the ice cream socials, and would occasionally go to the puzzle nights with one other resident. Personally, I found the staff to be very accommodating to visitors. They allowed me to enjoy dinner with my grandmother. I was able to visit with one of the nurses to see how she was doing medically and receive updates on her status as an Alzheimer's patient.
