High-quality food plays a critical role in the quality of life we all experience. Ridge Manor’s assisted living services include meals and snacks which are prepared in our kitchen and are shared family-style with clients and staff around the dining room table. Clients get to enjoy rich cooking aromas and are encouraged to participate in meal preparation when desired. When each person moves in we’ll add their favorite meals to the menu to make it feel more like home. Family and friends are always welcome! Snacks, including fresh fruit and vegetables as well as some traditional sweets like cookies, cake, or muffins, are available on request 24 hours a day. We are able to accommodate special diets such as gluten-free, low-salt, low-fat, mechanically soft, pureed, etc.
Our memory care services include a variety of activities tailored around each client’s social, emotional, and spiritual needs and interests. Activities may include listening to music, nature, bird and wildlife watching, reading, religious activities, playing games, watching a ballgame, and doing baking and crafts in the home. Looking at family photo albums or items in a treasure box can also help to trigger wonderful memories.
Housekeeping and laundry are included in the monthly rate for memory care services. Clients who wish to remain independent are encouraged to participate at any level they are able. Sometimes being able to help with household tasks is an important way for a client to remain engaged in day-to-day activity. Bed sheets and towels are provided.
