Review of Wood Ridge Assisted Living

As these places go, Wood Ridge is not bad! I am an RN, so I may be a little pickier, but it seems to be run rather loosely. One me error, one long response to the emergency button. However, many people have been kind to my family member, and she likes it here!

Not Impressed

I was not so impressed with the community. I do know that they are one of the few facilities that if you apply you can get medicaid supplement. It made it tempting to consider but it was quite old and they were preparing for renovation, as they told me. It doesn't appear clean and I don't get a good feel. I get a nursing home feel than an assisted feeling.

If Assisted Living is Enough, then Wood Ridge is a Fine Choice!

We were pleased with our experience with Wood Ridge Assisted Living, however, as it turned out, my mother simply required more monitoring and care than any Assisted Living facility can provide. She became dehydrated for a second time and consequently, her dementia grew, rather than decreased.

Following another hospitalization, we moved my mom to Holy Cross Sanctuary. There were some initial problems, but after an extensive psych evaluation and the addition of new medications, she returned to Holy Cross and is continuing to adjust to her newest living arrangement. It's only been one full week since her return to Holy Cross, but we believe that this nursing home environment is the right solution for my mother's needs.

My father and his children who came to tour with him were not impressed with the facility. We noticed the main entrance did not have a security feature, the carpet throughout the facility was heavily stained and there was a stale smell. The residents seemed to be left alone sleeping in wheelchairs in common areas, and we did not see staff interacting with the residents in activities. Several staff walked by us and did not acknowledge our presence. When we met with the director, she was pleasant and gave us a detailed tour of the facility. She also explained that they had just received approval for a grant to be used to renovate the building with new carpet and paint. Our family's overall impression was we did not feel this was a good fit for our father.

No separate bedroom. Very small. Reminds us of a dorm room, not a home.

I liked this place but the front door was not kept locked and there didn't seem like there was much going on for the residents. It had more of a nursing home vibe. The staff was not very visible.
