Caring staff and fun activities
I like that we have choices for meals. The nursing staff is very conscientious. The rehab team is very flexible around activities. I like the activities provided by the activities directors. They are fun! Housekeeping does well with the upkeep of my room. Social Services keeps in contact with how I'm doing. Administration is on top of any concerns I may have.

Outlook is looking real good!
It’s been a long haul but the outlook is looking real good. The leg that couldn’t move or have weight on it can now have weight on it.

Rooms are clean and meals are very good
I have been at Cedar Ridge since July 1st and had to have 2 surgeries to fix a broken femur. Cedar Ridge has been wonderful. Their biggest asset is their employees. They are so caring and helpful. The rooms are cleaned each day and the meals are very good. You get to choose your meals. I would definitely stay here again.
