Below are some testimonials from residents and family members that have made Ridges at Peoria Senior Living their home. We invite you to come and visit our community, talk firsthand with current residents and take a tour!
Hello, my name is Jennifer, and I wanted to tell you about the place I have been living since February of this year. I am a senior, and last year had to make several hard decisions because of health reasons. I could no longer take care of my home or my yard as mobility issues have made things more difficult for me.
I could not be happier with the place I chose to live. I must say I was not asked or paid to write this. Just love it so, I wanted to share.
The Ridges at Peoria, in Arizona which consists of independent living, assisted living, and memory care. Three separate entities, which exist on one very large, beautiful campus. When I discovered The Ridges, I was very surprised at the size of the apartments. While this facility is not new by any means, they are going to great lengths to remodel as many apartments as they can. However the thing that impressed me most was the beautifully landscaped ground. While other places I looked at had a beautiful landscaped front of the building, no other gardens or places to enjoy outside were to be found. Each apartment here has an existing patio or balcony overlooking beautiful landscaped grounds of fully mature trees, flowering bushes and sweeping lawns. Residents can even add to the beauty with their own plants or flowers in pots on the patios or balconies. They also have beautiful water fountains scattered about. I sent pictures of my home and views to my cousin in England and he said it looked like I was living in a resort. I told him it was just like that.
Garden Ridge, which is the independent living facility even offers the opportunity to bring your loving pets with you. If a dog they provide a fence (for a nominal fee) which would surround your patio to give your furry family members a place to enjoy outside. Not to mention lovely paths and walkways to stroll with your pets when you wish.
The apartments are spacious and lovely. They have on bedroom, one bedroom and a den, two bedroom apartments. Each apartment has a spacious living room, galley kitchen, and bathroom with a walk-in closet, and a storage shed out on the patio or balcony. Each apartment has its own separate thermostat so you can be comfortable in your home.
The dining room is a gorgeous room surrounded by windows looking out at the beautiful gardens. We have a swimming pool residents can enjoy also, and an area outside the pool between buildings with nice comfortable seating for socializing with your friends, completely covered, protecting us from inclement weather. Our living room is absolutely unique and beautiful and is the residents gathering place for social events and entertainment.
Included in our rents are all utilities (except wi-fi and phone service), linen service, and housekeeping every other week. Laundry facilities are included on every floor (at no charge) if you choose to do your own laundry. Three meals a day in the dining room. Fun activities provided every day for residents to choose from. Transportation for your medical appointments and weekly trips for shopping at local stores. The Ridges has a full maintenance staff who will readily be available if anything is not working properly in your apartment. The Ridges also have a wellness staff, to assist with minor health issues when needed.
I know it sounds like a luxury resort which costs an exorbitant amount of money, but not so. It is one of the more reasonable places around, which offers so much more than others. The residents here are friendly and welcoming, as are the employees. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect home for me. I do love it here. I encourage you to come and take a look.
Dawn, just a quick note to thank you for helping us transition Betty to Senita Ridge—there’s so much more than just “moving in” and I appreciate all of your patience and help!
I also know it takes a whole team, and while I haven’t learned everyone’s names yet, I hope that you will pass along my appreciation and thank you to everyone who has helped Betty get settled and who takes care of her daily needs.
Everyone of the staff has been extremely helpful and kind and I am so thankful to each of them—and know that they are each very special to work with all of these seniors!
A special note of thanks to Kailie, Patty and the front reception staff—wow, they are helpful, and welcoming, and have a huge job similar to airport flight controllers directing incoming guests, deliveries, medical staff, and residents and always with a smile! Thank you for all you do!
