Reviews of Ridgewood
- The best days are yet to come
The entire staff is dedicated to the well-being of their residents. My father was reluctant to leave his home after more than sixty years. It was the best move he could have made. I believe it has added years...
- No time
I was here for a tour, and after waiting an hour there wasn't anyone there to give me one. The lady at the front desk was rude and on her phone and couldn't answer any of my questions. If they don't...
Really nice and priced okay but too far away from family.
