So caring and loving
The facility, as well as all the staff are so caring and loving to my loved one. The biggest compliment I could ever hope to hear was the day my Dad was told he could leave the hospital and return to Mountain Ridge and he exclaimed that he couldn't wait to go HOME!
-Barbara P. via Facebook review
"From the bottom of my heart, the doctors, the nurses, all the therapies, everybody just touched my life in ways that changed me, gave me new perspective on life. They treated me like family."
Helpful and considerate
I found most of the nurses and LNAs and administrative staff helpful and considerate. The rehabilitation therapy I had there was excellent, Alana and Jessica and Teresa and Kim and others. I was much improved by the time I went home. The people who worked in the dining room are very nice.

Caregiver respite stay
Our team just wants to send a special thank you to you and your team for providing a caregiver respite stay for their mother.As you know, Alzheimer's is a difficult disease to manage, especially in the home setting, and her daughter needed a well deserved break. She says that she was finally able to rest and relax and spend time with her other family, which isn't something she often has the chance to do. Her daughter was so pleased and touched that you allowed her mom to keep the baby doll she became attached to while she was there. Thank you again for your collaboration with our program as well as supporting our patients and their families. Sincerely, Susan Varnum, Social Worker, CRVNA-Hospice.
Efficient and compassionate
Mountain Ridge received this letter from a recent short stay patient of ours, Linda. Linda writes, "To Sarah, I would like you to know the wonderful care I have gotten from all, especially Amber. She is the best LNA that you have there- efficient, quick, and compassionate. She helped me above and beyond what she needed to. She always came in when I was down. Amber is wonderful and special. I will miss her so much". Thank you Linda for your kind words!
