Ridge Manor can support almost every need for care, based on over 10 years of experience caring for the medically fragile and aging population. In addition to memory care, we have experience with challenging conditions such as Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, ALS, Huntington’s, and PSP, as well as with ostomies, feeding tubes, nebulizers, and supplemental oxygen.
The staff at Ridge Manor are extensively trained in memory care and are prepared to assist through the later stages of dementia and Alzheimer’s. Our high staffing ratios and social activities are designed to address the deep emotional and spiritual needs that, if unmet, can lead to a sense of loneliness and isolation and produce challenging behaviors.
Our homes are designed in consultation with a number of experts to accommodate individuals in all stages of dementia. They look like typical homes in beautiful suburban settings while offering features such as secured entrances, seamless neutral flooring, and blinds/drapes on the windows to minimize issues associated with Sundowner’s Syndrome. The walls are painted in colors that are contrasting to the fixtures (sinks, toilets, etc.) throughout the house in order to help those with dementia to locate these critical objects.
We partner with a visiting nurse practitioner that provides on-site visits, telehealth visits, referrals to specialists, lab tests, and x-rays. We facilitate clear communication between our clients, their care providers, and their loved ones to ensure optimal health and continuity of care.
Ridge Manor partners with proven hospice organizations to provide hospice care on-site. Our goal is to provide dignified, comfortable palliative care to individuals and their families who are going through the end-of-life process.
Providing care for a loved one is the right choice for many families, but it can also be challenging at times. We are equipped to provide respite stays while the caregivers are away or to help in recovery after a health issue. Respite stays are typically between 2 and 35 days in length. Respite clients enjoy all of the amenities of long-term clients. Respite stays are subject to room availability.
