Customer Reviews

Excellent care

We placed my mother on August 5, 2019, after she was removed from another community. My mother passed away on August 25, 2019. We were not pleased with the care she previously received. Our decision to move her was an excellent decision.

The staff was superior. Mom was in memory care, and she was an exiter, someone who constantly sought to return to her home, the home of her childhood. Staff was patient, kind and attentive. Mom wanted nothing but to go home. Her dementia caused behavioral issues but the staff understood and worked with her. They accepted her disease and worked to make her time better. Mom fired them, she told them she owned the building yet they respected her and met her where she was in her disease. They didn't mock her or make fun of her disease or its symptoms.

She was always clean. She liked the foods they prepared. The building had no odor. She received her medications in a timely manner, and her room was cleaned. Everything they did they focused on her comfort. Most importantly they didn't treat her as a victim of Alzheimer's but a person, as a mother, a friend. Our family only has good words for this community. They told us they understood the disease process, and they did. Her last days were filled with kindness, compassion, and dignity.

I wish we would have placed her there sooner. It is wonderful, the administrator (Melissa) and her team deserve accolades for delivering on their promises.

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 to his life.

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 have time to answer questions, they won't have time for my family member. There was no administrator there and there wasn't any nursing staff I would talk to. Very disappointed and will not be back.

Really nice and priced okay but too far away from family.

Photos looked nice. Options for a full kitchen, I think (maybe not in the memory care unit?)

Helpful Staff!!

I have no complaints about the tour I had taken at this community for my loved one. The staff where on time to our appointment and made sure to answer any questions we had for them in detail. They had a nice activity list put together for all of the residents as well as a tasty menu. I thought they had a clean property and did a nice job maintaining the building. It was just not the right fit in the end decision for my aunt.

Not enough Staff !!

I really expected more from this location for how big the community was. I was not very impressed with what I saw during my tour and was very concerned that there was no staff on the floor or any where to be seen during my visit. I did not feel this was a good fit for my loved one and would not recommend this place.

Loving Ridgewood!

My folks moved in 2 weeks ago. We have really seen a change in my mom, she is participating in all the activities and just loves the socializing. They both can't say enough about how good the food is. My dad is enjoying the fitness area and the view off of his patio as well. The staff is so friendly and helpful. They moved from a home they lived in for 30 years so we thought the transition might be difficult, but they are so happy they made the move to Ridgewood.

Very Great Staff

My father seem to like it here at Ridgewood things have been going great. The community looks nice and very clean and never had a problem with that. I feel like the staff is what makes this place and they have been helpful and nice to my father and me as well with any concerns we may have. He said the food is okay I will traveling to see him to experience the food my self because to him everything is okay. I would recommend this community to friends or anyone thinking about senior living.

helpful and accommodating

The staff at Ridgewood are very helpful and accommodating. They made the transition easy for her. Other places are the same price or more and not near as good as this facility. I like the space that she has, it's just very very nice. One thing that made her feel good is the first day down in the dining room the chef came out and told her that this wasn't just him serving and she has to eat what he serves. He told her she can have the food the way she wants it. That made her feel good because she has struggled with her appetite but that has gotten better. She has ample storage space and has given her the chance to keep seasonal items. That has really made it feel like home for her. It has been a very good experience.

couldn't go outside

The only thing I didn't like about Ridgewood is it was on second floor and they couldn't go outside. It was secure and the residents cant get out. It just wasn't the right facility for my husband.

Review of Ridgewood Alzheimer's / Memory Care in Bennington, NE

I met with Hannah Sacco. She was very helpful and is checking into pets as a possibility. Executive chef on premises who prepares food. Downside: on 2nd floor, back elevator. Not outside walking path unless escorted. Regular visits from minister who sings with a guitar. Mom would like that. Nice sunroom overlooking conservation area. Can take hiwY 36 all the way to North Omaha, 680 to 29.

Very impressed with this facility, un...

Very impressed with this facility, unlike the nursing home my grandmother was in years ago! The Director was informative and answered our questions knowledgably. This is the start of our research but this is a facility I would consider putting my dad.
