Customer Reviews

Staff is why Ridgefield Crossing is the best.

Ridgefield Crossing has been great. Having worked in health care and our local emergency services for the past 30 years, I have had the opportunity to interact and work with many of the assisted living facilities within Fairfield County. This experience made it easy to choose Ridgefield Crossing when we relocated Mom to our hometown of Ridgefield. The most important trait that we have enjoyed about Ridgefield Crossing is the staff. Their care and dedication is second to none. From nursing to the dedicated patient care aids, I feel that they are always going the extra mile to provide the best compassionate care. On top of the great patient care staff the support staff has also become part of our family. Thank you Ridgefield Crossing! Keep the family first as you always do!

Benchmark Senior Living at Ridgefield Crossings was very nice and the people were super nice to everyone. When you walk in you can tell it is a clean place. The staff was very helpful and always ready to help. Ridgefield is one of the best towns in the Connecticut and this place has to be one of the best in order to service this great town.

Great staff culture

Earlier this year we considered several assisted living community for my mom. We ultimately chose Ridgefield Crossings because upon visiting, the staff and caregivers seemed to be so friendly and solicitous of the residents. Now that she has been living there for more than three months, we could not be happier with our choice. The transition to assisted living can be a trying time for the resident and family, but the people at Ridgefield have made the difference. Our initial impression has been confirmed - the Ridgefield staff has been so friendly and helpful. Whether it is providing healthcare support, social integration, or just being there to answer questions, they have been terrific.
The team at Ridgefield is to be commended for building and nurturing a culture of resident support and satisfaction. It is probably not a coincidence that the residents seem to be so happy there - the positive staff culture is contagious.
Overall we are very happy with the community and our moms care.

I liked the facility itself, it was clean and the food was good, but the memory care unit itself. seemed a bit sterile, and I felt like I didn't really get a chance to see how the patients were treated or get a chance to see how people acted.

food excellent - staff & residents were extremely friendly - the room laid outs for 1 bedrooms were strange - well staffed with assoicates that were available at all times.

Absolutly Loved

We toured at Benchmark when we were looking for a place for my loved one. I absolutely loved this community, but the room that they had available at the time was too far down a long corridor for my loved one. He did not like the distance, so we continued looking for a more suitable community.

I toured this community

I went on a tour here and it was nice. The staff was friendly and answered all my questions. The rooms were a decent size. It was a little big and thought it would be overwhelming for my mom. I had lunch here and the food was good.

Care for mom

I was able to speak with the staff on the care that is available for my mom's care. They had a nice list of activities and the menu seemed to be appealing. I was informed that the activities would be offered for her to participate. They have small trips away from the community. We would recommend that families our this community on their own to see if it fids there needs of a loved one.

Lovely Staff At This Community

This is a lovely community, and my father is doing very well since his move here. I'am pleased with everything they have done for us. He is safe, and in good hands. The staff very kind, and have been helpful whenever needed. I have heard nothing but positive comments from my father about them. When I visit his room, and the community are nice, and clean. The meals are good, and there are activities offered for the residents. It has been a positive experience for us in this community, and I would recommend it.

Comfortable stay!

This facility is doing an excellent job at caring for my loved one! The staff is very friendly and do what they can to meet my loved ones' care needs. Though there are some renovations being made on the facility, it is still very clean and well maintained. Overall, I am definitely satisfied!

Thank you Benchmark Rodgefield CT

My mother is a smart active person who is extremely independent. Each member of the staff treats her with the utmost respect and kindness. She is able to maintain her independence with a compassionate safety net.

Nice community.

The Benchmark Senior Living at Ridgefield Crossings was a nice community. It was decently clean and well kept. The staff were friendly and answered all of my questions. The residents seemed to be busy interacting with the activities offered. We would consider Benchmark if the time comes for my loved one to move into assisted living.

Above and Beyond

The staff at Ridgefield Crossing have tried so hard to meet my mother's needs. They are always willing to listen to our requests and concerns. They have gone above and beyond when it comes to health needs and social requests. I would highly recommend "The Crossing" as a new home for your loved ones.

Ridgefield Crossings_an excellent choice

It's a very big adjustment but both my parents are impressed with the staff, happy with the many amenities the community offers, and getting more comfortable over time with this new lifestyle.

My siblings and I visited many senior communities in the surrounding area and most of them were impressive but, ultimately, this was an easy call for us. There is a different vibe at Ridgefield Crossings and a greater sense of vitality. Hard to say exactly why, but it probably comes down to a combination of both the residents and the staff.

Very nice looking, but very expensive

I toured this community while looking into care options for a loved one. This was a very nice looking place, it was well kept and clean, and all of the staff I met seemed friendly and professional. However, it was also very expensive. We ended up selecting another community, but this is somewhere I would have considered as an option for my loved one.

Very nice place, but very expensive

Benchmark Senior Living is a very very nice place, overall. The facility itself is beautiful, clean, and well kept, and the staff are all very pleasant and attentive. They've done a wonderful job taking care of my loved one. However, they are also very VERY expensive, and unfortunately not a permanent option for my family due to the price.

Seemed like a nice place

We toured this community while looking into care options for a loved one. Benchmark at Ridgefield Crossings seemed like a nice enough place overall, the staff we met were friendly and the facility itself was well kept and clean. We saw options in the area we thought would be a better fit for Dad, but I would still recommend this place as being worth a look!

Changing your lifestyle for the better

From the original contact to move-in day the staff at RC is always courteous, helpful, personable which is so critical when you are going thru the changes that come with moving to a very new and different lifestyle.... a really good one.

First impressions count and making them exceptional is so very important. RC does a great job recognizing and acting accordingly.

I am so happy that my loved one has people her own age around to share her days vs being alone.

It was a good tour.

I toured here when I was looking around. I liked that this community was able to deal with the medical issues related to Diabetes. They were also able to accommodate both my loved ones, one who needed assisted living and one who is more independent.

So far, great!

My parents haven't moved in yet although they do have an apartment. Ridgefield Crossings has been so cooperative and is making things as easy as possible for them in their moving process. The staff that we have met have been friendly and helpful. If their experience continues as it has been going, I would continue to give them a 5 star rating.

Great place

From start to finish this was a wonderful process. We felt very supported without being pressured. There was transparency , and recognition of how difficult this is for most families. I can't say enough good things about them. My mom is very happy there and that is the icing on the cake.

Ridgefield Crossings

I was nervous moving my mom in at age 83 after living alone for years but it was the best thing I did. She loves it and has made friends and socializes. The staff are all wonderful and the residents are well taken care off. It is very clean and beautiful!

Thank you for sharing! We love what we do and are extremely proud of our team and of their dedication to the individual needs of every resident. Caring for seniors is not just our purpose, it's our passion.

A warm and friendly supportive environment

I found Ridgefield Crossings to be a warm, friendly and supportive environment to both family and residents. My father is difficult to draw out and the staff continues to work hard to make him feel comfortable and accepted at HIS pace. As with all new situations, there are mutual things to learn about expectations and procedures. I found the staff open to suggestion where we had minor shortcomings and exceptionally sensitive to resolving those issues during our first 30 days. I continue to be impressed closing in on our first 60 days.

Thank you for sharing your experiences with us. Your praise, as well as your critique, is extremely important to us. We strive to continually make improvements and your feed-back helps us accomplish that.


My first impression was great! The place is beautiful, clean and everyone was very pleasant and helpful! Shortly after the move I was able to see the flaws and dis function. The staff seems to turn away from extra attention which is dearly needed with the elderly! They ignore there needs and only do what is notably necessary! The laundry situation is a disaster. Cloths, shoes, bedding and personal items are lost or stolen. The cost of the facility is way overpriced for the service! Very disappointed!

A really nice facility and is being cared for very well.

The place is very, very clean. They are very friendly, too friendly, they creep me out. When I did research they are in line for this section of the country price wise. They offer a wide variety of activities. We use the Alzheimers care. The availability of services and their honesty is what made me choose this community. I felt that others were sort of a bait and switch. The staff seems to be just wonderful it's a really nice facility and is being cared for very well!l

It's going pretty well.

It's going pretty well, my mom is a difficult patient. It's beautiful and well staffed. They offer a lot of activities, but my mom doesn't participate. I chose this because the location was good and the aestetics were pleasing. I think the follow through from when one staff member determines whether or not they need something and they need to communicate it to the next person and they have let the ball drop a few times.

A Great Place!

I like that the atmosphere there is beautiful and that the staff really cares. They're really great. I mean, mom has her little quirks and they do a great job accommodating her which is lovely. The care services are very good but sometimes there are certain of the aids and caretakers who don't really do as much as some other ones do. But other than two people or so everyone is fantastic. I think the activities are very good. My mom doesn't really participate but that's just her and her current situation. She can't really participate but there always seems to be things going on. Also, they are always available to take her to doctors appointments and things too which is important.

Wonderful Place!

I give this place a 5+ and a 5++ for the staff! It really is a great place. My brother couldn't be more happy. We like the cleanliness and the warmth of the staff. Starting at the top with the administrative staff all the way down to the servers in the dining area, everyone is great. We also like that it's a very open institution. I mean, the family is welcome to come at any time and that's wonderful.The staff is a very stable staff and I like the amenities. There is always coffee available and fresh lemon water that you can just go and help yourself to. They have a wonderful library and the act are great. Maybe they need to work with the dining room chef because people are not always happy with the selection. They quality of the food is good but the options could be more diverse.


My mother has only been there for about 10 days, but so far I think they're fine.

Lovely facility. The program directo...

Lovely facility. The program director knew all the patients by name and they seems to respond to her. All the staff was very welcoming and seemed happy to share any information with us. One down side was the advanced state most of the patients were in. I didn't notice a lot of interaction between them although they were in the same room. Didn't see a lot of staff around but there was an outing today so that may be why. Very costly and a lease is involved with a 30 day notice clause (15 in case of death). rent is still expected even if there is hospitalization. Staff ratio is 1:7 in day and 1:14 at night). Great concept for dining options (visual choices) and added benefits of depth perception color choices in decor. Nice menu choices. Will follow up for psyician list as she will need her own.
