Very impressed with this facility, unlike the nursing home my grandmother was in years ago! The Director was informative and answered our questions knowledgably. This is the start of our research but this is a facility I would consider putting my dad.
Excellent carereviewed on: 08/29/2019 by Kathy
We placed my mother on August 5, 2019, after she was removed from another community. My mother passed away on August 25, 2019. We were not pleased with the care she previously received. Our decision to move her was an excellent decision. The staff was superior. Mom was in memory care, and she was an exiter, someone who constantly sought to return to her home, the home of her childhood. Staff was patient, kind and attentive. Mom wanted nothing but to go home. Her dementia caused behavioral issues but the staff understood and worked with her. They accepted her disease and worked to make her time better. Mom fired them, she told them she owned the building yet they respected her and met her where she was in her disease. They didn't mock her or make fun of her disease or its symptoms. She was always clean. She liked the foods they prepared. The building had no odor. She received her medications in a timely manner, and her room was cleaned. Everything they did they focused on her comfort. Most importantly they didn't treat her as a victim of Alzheimer's but a person, as a mother, a friend. Our family only has good words for this community. They told us they understood the disease process, and they did. Her last days were filled with kindness, compassion, and dignity. I wish we would have placed her there sooner. It is wonderful, the administrator (Melissa) and her team deserve accolades for delivering on their promises.
couldn't go outsidereviewed on: 11/12/2015 by Anonymous
The only thing I didn't like about Ridgewood is it was on second floor and they couldn't go outside. It was secure and the residents cant get out. It just wasn't the right facility for my husband.
Review of Ridgewood Alzheimer's / Memory Care in Bennington, NEreviewed on: 11/07/2014 by Anonymous
I met with Hannah Sacco. She was very helpful and is checking into pets as a possibility. Executive chef on premises who prepares food. Downside: on 2nd floor, back elevator. Not outside walking path unless escorted. Regular visits from minister who sings with a guitar. Mom would like that. Nice sunroom overlooking conservation area. Can take hiwY 36 all the way to North Omaha, 680 to 29.
The best days are yet to comereviewed on: 06/27/2019 by Bob Dornacker
The entire staff is dedicated to the well-being of their residents. My father was reluctant to leave his home after more than sixty years. It was the best move he could have made. I believe it has added years to his life.
