The one thing that really made a difference at The Ridge at Lancaster is that they hire their own medical staff. They don't use an agency. With my mother's dementia, that made a huge difference because she was comfortable with the staff. The staff communicated very well and they were very kind. I still go over and play bingo with all of the friends that my mom made.

This was the best move we could have made for my mother. She has gotten the best care since we have moved her. The fact that the medical staff is hired and not an agency is an absolute plus. The turn over with an agency was a nightmare. No one was ever the same and with someone with dementia that was hard to handle. The staff knows everyone by there names because the facility isn't so big.

Proceed with Caution
The community is understaffed. They only had one housekeeper to clean the entire community and the resident's rooms. The staff made promises during the tour and before moving in and the promises weren't fulfilled on their end. There were times the family brought concerns of theft to Management and our concerns weren't addressed and it felt swept under the rug. It felt like they were more concerned with filling the rooms with residents, than providing the care of the residents. I feel communication with the staff and family is lacking and could be improved. My loved one loved the chef, and some of the other residents here. I believe the building is great!

We made the right choice!
One of the hardest choices we've had to make for our Mother has been where she would live in her later years. We got it right with Landings of Lancaster! She loves the home like atmosphere and the loving staff, which is something we didn't find with larger facilities. The courtyard is a beautiful place to relax and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. There is a true feeling of family and friendship with the staff and the other residents. We all look forward to the Family Night gatherings they have each month. It's a great time to visit and spend time with our family and get to know the other residents a little bit better.

When I brought my mother on a tour she felt right at home the first visit. She immediately talked with some of the residents and felt good about living there. The staff seem very caring and have good interaction with the people they serve. I feel Brookdale is a great choice for my mother!

Good Experience, Tour Was Nice
I had a good tour of this community. It was a nice experience. The staff I met was kind, and friendly. The community looked nice. Everyone was very kind. The location of this community was too far from his doctors, and other personal needs he has. My tour went well, but this wasn't the facility for us.

Highly Recommended
There could maybe be some more activities, because my loved one participates in some, but she's also in her room a lot so I would like her to get out more. Other than that, they have been very helpful. She has only been there for a short while, but I have already seen a huge improvement. I would highly recommend the place.

Place is very safe and homey feeling. Safe enclosed courtyard. Great intercom system in each room linked to safety button worn by resident to cellphone carried by staff. Great variety of food and activities. Friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are nice sized and allow for a living area and bedroom. I liked the individualized plans for each resident to have the things they personally need or like when they prefer to get it, instead of having everyone on the same schedule.

Sterling House is a clean, safe, friendly place for your loved one.
Before placing my sister at Sterling House, we research several other assisted living facilities in the Lancaster area. Sterling House staff has the friendliest staff and has the most "home like" feeling. The fact that the exterior doors are locked at all times was a factor in our decision and the staff are appropriately dressed and clean and neat in appearance. Since my sister has taken up residence there we are impressed with the assistance given her due to her disability. I feel comfortable with her at Sterling House knowing she is in a safe place and will be provided with any support she needs.

Would have great under different circumstances
My mother never actually moved in. I enrolled her and then after careful consideration, due to her health issues, I chose to place her in a long term care facility with more medical/nursing available. Staff and mgmt was very friendly, but no one has returned my calls regarding getting my deposit back. I have even sent a letter to the administrative offices, with no response to date. If she had moved in, I would not be asking for the deposit back, but since I informed them before she moved in, I feel like it should be returned.

Tips for evaluating your community options

Safety is a primary concern when seniors and their families look for Assisted Living. To ensure that a community meets your needs and expectations, we recommend that seniors and family members:

  • Tour the location: Touring allows you to speak to current residents and staff, and helps you confirm the accuracy of the community description and photos. Use our touring checklist to help guide your visit.

  • Confirm the availability of required services: Before you commit, make sure that the community offers all the services your senior needs, and that those services can be provided within your budget.

  • Know the Ohio regulations for Assisted Living: Each state has its own laws and inspections processes to ensure seniors reside in a safe environment. Depending on your state, you may even be able to look up inspection reports for the community(ies) you’re considering. Learn more about Ohio regulations for Assisted Living.
