Our experience there

Everyone there has been so terrific and extremely friendly. Overall the meals are satisfactory. They have a ton of different activities. Our loved one really enjoys the bingo and trivia. Every month they have a different destination where they encouraged the families to come and eat meals with them. For Mardi Gras they did a themed dinner, and for the state of Nevada they did like an old Vegas theme where they had a gentlemen come play songs for them. Based on our experience so far we would recommend the community to others.... Read more

Tour experience

We toured Inspired Living at Ivy Ridge and it was a no from the moment that we walked in the door. The urine odor was absolutely awful. We wanted a place that did not have that typical "nursing home" feel to it and we got that immediately here.

They keep their days full and allow them outside access!

For every imaginable holiday there is some activity they find to celebrate it, and if there is not a holiday they get to explore countries. At first we thought the rooms were small, but in fact they are pretty nice and encourage the residents to get out and about. One of the unique selling points is that they can walk outside in an enclosed walk way and sitting area anytime we want. We would recommend this community to others.

Very Caring and supportive staff. They listen to your concerns and take the time to get to know you and your loved one's individual needs. There are many memory care facilities out there but none of them show the kind of attention that Inspired at Ivy does. Highly recommended.

Review of Inspired Living at Ivy Ridge

We are very pleased with Ivy Ridge. They never miss an opportunity to celebrate a cause or holiday. It is always colorful and festive. [Names removed] interact so well with the residents. [Names removed] are very involved and caring. The size of this facility creates an environment where everybody knows each other. The ability for my mom to go outside safely to enjoy the sun is a wonderful bonus.

Better than most

Like all facilities, they will make promises that they can't and keep. If anything they offer is important to you, or if you have special requests that they agree to, get it in writing before signing the paperwork. Their price is higher than most in the area, but their treatment of residents is also above par, for the most part. The staff is very friendly (except the kitchen manager) and I have never witnessed a staff member being unkind to a resident, though some are surely better than others. Staff is specially trained in treatment of those with memory issues and it shows, but they are often understaffed which is problematic and leads to unintentional neglect. Activities are frequent unlike some other places, but it is hard to keep decent activities staff. My parent is no longer with them, but I would recommend this facility over any of the others we have personally experienced.

Great Care

My wife has made such tremendous progress being here she is able to come home by the end of the week. The staff is wonderful here they are working with her alongside an outside physical therapy service to gain her strength back which she is doing. My wife loves the staff here they are so nice and patient. After dinner, she goes to play bingo every night she which enjoys. The food she does not like it has no taste to it no seasoning. I would recommend this community

Ivy Ridge excels in providing inspired living

Updating my 2015 review (at which time I gave 5 stars) - if it was possible to give more than 5 stars I would. The behaviors and needs of those afflicted with dementia do change over time, and Ivy Ridge has stayed in step, making changes in my aunt's care to meet her needs. I cannot visit often, so how do I know this? It's because of communication. Emails, videos, photos - we get updates all the time so that I can see my aunt and hear her laugh and read about her daily life ... each day is truly inspired living for her. Ivy Ridge provides an enormous amount of activities all day every day. Residents are encouraged to participate or at least to be present. The staff knows the personalities of each and knows how much level of encouragement is needed, or when to back off, because they know each one's interests. Great thought goes into planning these activities, often adding a twist to make them unique, and, therefore, very enriching and never boring. Dancing, singing, crafting, holiday and birthday celebrating, games, volleyball with a balloon and other sports, movies, playing with a Wii, animals who come to visit - the list is endless. For those who can there are field trips, lunch at restaurants, community involvement such as delivering Meals-On-Wheels. But Ivy Ridge's excellence is more than just keeping my aunt entertained. Maintaining her physical health is a priority. The staff is highly skilled in using positive motivational techniques to promote success in my aunt's physical therapy, to stimulate her to eat, to encourage her to get out of bed to start a new day. At all times the staff maintains a positive attitude and shows great patience. The greatest gift that the staff at Ivy Ridge has given to me is that they make me feel as if my aunt is the only resident. This shows the level of personal one-on-one care she receives ... as do all the other residents because I, of course, know that my aunt is not the only resident living an inspired life - just looking at their very active Facebook page shows me such wonderful photos and videos of so many other residents having a blast and living an inspired life. Thank you Inspired Living at Ivy Ridge!

Interacts with patients to keep them active and involved

My husband is currently in his 2nd respite care at Ivy Ridge. He and I chose Ivy Ridge because the people living there have activities going on just about all the time, including a popular bingo game every evening at 6Pm. People are free to choose activities , meal choices, and may go to their rooms when they choose. From our observation of other places we felt they seem to be more oriented to the families rather than to the patients. Ivy Ridge is definitely oriented and engaged with their patients. My husband's first stay was for a month. This current one will probably be longer. I've been in al all hours and have been pleased with all shifts. My background is in nursing/administration

A Good Respite Stay Experience

My mother in law was here for a respite stay, and for the most part it was a good experience. They have a good staff here, they were very helpful and caring. They do a good job with keeping the community nice and very clean. She was cared for well here. She enjoyed playing bingo, and she would do brain stimulating activities with the staff. The memory care they provided her with was good. This is a community I would recommend, it worked out good for us.

The community gave me an uncomfortable feeling during our tour. The staff was very awkward and didn't have direct answers to the many different questions I had presented to them. The main living and dinning room needed more natural light and not so many dimmed lights.

It Is A Suitable Place

My mom has fell walking down the hall. The staff called me and let me know this but I also noticed a few more residents had fallen too. Otherwise, she is doing fine and well. The place looks pretty clean and looks good. My mom does not enjoy the food at times. I am unsure why she does not like the meals.

Outstanding in all areas so far

Mom moved in 2-weeks ago, and so far everything has been 5 stars. We are especially pleased with the number of activities each day, which is important for those with early dementia. The care staff has been very friendly and helpful with Mom's transition from another memory care facility.
