My Review

I have lived in Independent Living at Ridgecrest almost 2 1/2 years. The person who has influenced my life since she moved here is [name removed] in Wellness. Her exercise class starts at 10 am Monday through Friday. Now I'm not a morning person but she has changed my life style. I don't want to miss my exercise class! She encourages us and challenges us each day. She is one of the most organized and efficient individuals I've ever been around. She is excellent at her job, not only exercise but change of life style-(Ridgecrest's biggest loser). I've lost 12 1/2 pounds' so far! Yeah!! She has helped me so much in problem areas one-on-one. We are so fortunate and lucky we have someone as dedicated as [name removed] helping us to stay healthier!! She is a treasure!!

My Review

The Ridgecrest's Wellness program has given tremendously under the outstanding direction of [name removed]. It has grown from 2-4 at daily exercise to 10-12 participants. In addition, [name removed] serves one-on-one which previously has been unheard of here at Ridge Crest. After spending 2 1/2 months in the hospital [name removed] had worked wit me and helped me learn to climb stairs with a cane and walk considerable distances.

After careful consideration of many communities we toured, my wife and I decided to move to Ridgecrest. Our first impression the moment we walked through the door was how friendly and genuinely happy the Members and Team Members are. We have lived at Ridgecrest for a little over a year and have not had one negative experience, not one. The culture of the leadership team and team members is extraordinary. It’s not often you find an organization that you witness daily efforts and emphasis on continuous improvement and ways to better serve the membership. I fell shortly after we moved in, and within two minutes, five people were in my apartment helping me up. We have the supportive services in one location that gives us the opportunity to live our lives as we wish without burdening our children. We feel safe and secure at Ridgecrest. We don’t have to worry about yard work or shoveling snow. We have consolidated our finances and pay one bill every month. The peace of mind that Independent Living at Ridgecrest has given us is immeasurable. We have made so many friends here and have a wonderful support system at our fingertips. The Social and Dining experiences are over the top and we often bring in guests to join us. We have various types of entertainment. We have made a family at Ridgecrest, and it is the best decision we could have ever made.

RidgeCrest is a wonderful place to live. Residents come from a variety of background, which makes for interesting conversation. The staff is focused on well-being and is open to suggestions. The meals are fine and the chef welcomes input and seeks to respond to new dish suggestions and we have Genesis rehab on campus – it’s a big big plus. Check this place out.

Enjoy not having to maintain the house

My wife and I have been here for 2.5 years. Honestly, we only looked at RidgeCrest. It was close. We knew that there was no buy in. We just figured that once we were ready to retire, we would move to RidgeCrest. We decided that it was time to move when we started having to pay people to help maintain our house. It suits us very well. We are involved with all kinds of things. We exercise and go swimming. I was the President of the Resident Council for 2 years. There are a lot of activities- always something for going on. We no longer have to pay property taxes, maintain the house or yard cook or clean the house. We are down to one car as that is all we need. There is one thing that we should warn you about. The food is so good that you can easily put on weight. Good thing we have the wellness classes. When we moved here, there was a guest villa. We miss having that space for family and visiting friends as it was one of the benefits that mattered to us when we were moving. Come and check out RidgeCrest! Take advantage of the Lunch and Learn. You get a free meal. I advise you to talk with members.

Absolutely Love It!

I have been here for three years and I love it - absolutely love it! I joke that they are going to have to pry me out of here with my fingernails dragging. I came from Miami, after serving for 44 years as a high school teacher. My requirements for a retirement community were that is was quiet, clean and safe. I looked at hundreds of communities all over Florida and up along the east coast. I wanted to leave Florida to get away from the hurricane season. Georgia was also out due to its similar climate. South Carolina and North Carolina became my primary search areas and with a proximity to family. I was also looking for excellent medical facilities which drew me to Winston-Salem. RidgeCrest was in the top running. I visited 3 times and wanted to be sure that this would be the right place for me. I wanted one move- period. I have actually gotten well-er since being here. I am very happy and have made many friends. I am involved as much as I physically can be. I cook a lot and provide fresh baked goods to the other members at RidgeCrest. My advice is don’t wait, enjoy all that retirement has to offer while you can. There is something for everyone. I am thrilled that I made this decision while still in my 60s. There are activities for all wellness levels.

Found our Retirement Criteria in RidgeCrest

My wife and I left the area for my office with the State Health Program. Then after retiring, we moved back and worked a farm. We then decided to travel the world. We rented an apartment splitting our time here at RidgeCrest for 6 months and then 6 months in Florida. We then found we were spending 4 months packing and unpacking. We decided to buy a house in Florida where we stayed until we were looking for a retirement community. After looking in Florida, we decided to look back at RidgeCrest and were pleased to see that many of the same staff were still working. They remembered us and were extremely helpful in the move back to RidgeCrest. There is a saying that you can’t go home again but as I was a local from birth, it feels as though I am home. My wife served as the President of Resident’s Council and I am on the Board of Directors. I participate in the chair yoga when I can. I usually exercise everyday either here or at a local gym. We are involved in many of the activities. Last week, I gave a presentation on our trip to Greece. Thank goodness that we are not as busy here as we were in Florida but we are still busy. We had to maintain our home in Florida which we do not have to do here. We have been able to say goodbye to the little stresses in life. Our criteria for a retirement community was three-fold with good healthcare that is accessible and of high quality, compatible community where we could enjoy the other members and they enjoy us, Recreation was important. We found all three here. The hospital is only 3 miles away and is certified. There are 3 medical schools accessible in less than 2 hours. The sub specialties are all covered. This is my hometown, born and raised. I am happy to be back as I know a lot of people.
