About North Ridge Alzheimer's Special Care Center

We understand that caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's disease or a related memory loss is a difficult and challenging experience. We also understand that the decision to place a loved one in the care of others is perhaps the most difficult decision you will ever make. North Ridge was designed, and our staff is selected and trained, to help ease your mind.

Our philosophy of care is focused on the knowledge that to provide the care and support our Residents need, we must know and understand dementia and the ever changing impact it has on their ability to understand their world. We must also know each resident's unique life story in order to create moments that are meaningful to them personally. We strive to provide a warm, caring and supportive environment where our Residents can experience daily routines and familiar faces. Our programs are designed to add meaning and value to their lives and to help them feel secure in their environment. Throughout their stay with us, our Residents health and well being will be a shared concern among their family, friends and our knowledgeable staff. As partners in care we will work together to build a plan that supports thier independence and provides them with the sense of belonging that is so important to all of us.

Our philosophy of care is a simple one: To care for each Resident with dignity and respect and to join with you in honoring them.

    My sister has Huntington's disease and was living in a minimal-care assisted living center. She was falling quite a bit, and became uncommunicative and aggressive. I assumed it was the progressive decline of the disease. She moved into North Ridge and we gave her a week to settle into her new routine. My first visit with her was remarkable. She was responsive and engaged when I spoke to her. She spoke more words than I remember her speaking in a few years. She told me that she can't do the arts and crafts projects but she likes watching. I feel like I have my sister back again! Thank you North Ridge!

    If I could give more stars I would. North Ridge is a place where my father in law is truly understood, respected and treated with loving concern. A staff specially trained in dementia care is a huge blessing.

    Our family was very pleased with North Ridge. It's a very hardworking team of compassionate, caring professionals who work daily in a very challenging (and bizarre) environment -trying to make things a little easier for the patients as they lose their mental and physical functions, and for the families who feel the pain of watching a beloved family member wither away and lose touch with reality. In our case, they took very good care of our father during his final months - doing all they could to ease his pain and help him feel safe and comfortable. (Many of their residents really freak out at times. It's not an easy situation for anyone.) They also took incredible care of us during our long final hours at the facility (as our father was making his transition) - arranging meals, snacks, and a bed in the final weeks. We wanted for nothing. And, when he passed, they made all the calls to wrap things up and gave us warm hugs to say farewell. Memory loss for a family member presents some massive challenges for families. North Ridge took on the lion's share of those burdens for us so that we could still tend to our own lives. Also, although our father did not much partake in the social activities, the lovely facility and staff do create spaces for social interactions, exercise, and entertainment. There are two nice TV entertainment rooms and lots of plush, comfortable lounge chairs all around for those who prefer to be where all the action is. One bonus aspect of North Ridge's location is that you are near healthy, delicious restaurants like Flying Star and Thai Spice - making it easy to run out and grab a nice meal 'to go' that you can eat during your many visits to the facility.

    Calling to speak with the supervisor/director the receptionist Geraldine was very short with me, rude, and did not even offer to give me any information, she hung up on me. As a previous employer I worked here for a very short amount of time as the company over works their employees and does not give much individual attention to the residents. The facility it self is fairly new and does have a nice layout. The activities were always great for the residents. Be sure to acquire the turn over rate of directors and employees.
