Mother’s Day will be here in less that a month and I’d like to “thank you” all again for your kind, compassionate, and loving care given to my mom while she was with you. It was a relief to know she was safe and well cared for plus treated so kindly. Also, thank you for your sweet care and kindness to me and the family. All much, much appreciated. Again, many, many thanks!

LaPorte City Specialty Care

Last fall I was in a bad car wreck that resulted in an external fixator on my leg and left me in a wheelchair. Ridgewood took me in and I’m very happy with the help and the treatment I have received. Everyone from the nursing department to housekeeping treated me very well. They got me strong enough to return home and I continued seeing them for outpatient therapy, now I am back to walking independently, only using a cane occasionally because I live in the boonies. I have no complaints at all about my stay at Ridgewood. Thank you.

A beautiful, clean facility. Newer management that is attentive, genuinely cares about their residents, and kind. One of the few 5 star rated facilities in the area.

Thank you for taking care of my mom.  She felt people were very kind to her.  She appreciated the care she received and she always felt comfortable.  A special thank you to the women who took care of her daily.
