Assisted Living Reviews for The Waterford at Wisconsin Rapids

February 19, 2012

By commercesd

I visited this facility

Pine Ridge Assisted Living is conveniently located in lovely Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin. We were considering it as a place for our uncle to live. We arrived without an appointment - and the staff was very cordial and accommodating. The outside grounds were park-like, which we know our uncle will appreciate. The main areas were all clean and well-taken care of. We really liked that the staff and residents seemed to interact very well and liked one another. It has a family environment - which we feel will be good for our uncle - since it will be challenging to get us all together to visit him. The dining rooms were lovely and homey -- with home-style cooked food that is still healthy enough for any dietary need. We met the dietician who prepared the menus and were told that every effort is made to include as many choices as possible - to keep the residents interested in eating well. There are regular healthy snacks offered as well. The local library sends staff to help residents take out books. They also go to many cultural and city-wide happenings. There were plenty of great activities to participate in - which our uncle would really appreciate.The facility offers all of the typical outings and events - in addition to a few more. This is a very nice place to live for seniors, with kind, caring and attentive staff.
