The SeniorAdvisor.com Best of Awards characterizes the top-ranking in-home care, assisted living, and other senior living providers. This award recognizes the top one percent of providers and, more importantly, the winners are chosen by the consumers themselves. Chosen according to reviews written by seniors and their families, winners of the Best of Awards are the renowned 1,000 out of nearly 100,000 providers across the United States and Canada.

A long-time leader in senior housing, Ridgeline Management is making a big splash in the senior care community. With more than twenty facilities in nine states, the company has come a long way from their humble beginnings in West Linn, Oregon.

Ridgeline Management offers all of the standard senior care services. These include assisted living, independent living, and memory care. What makes these services stand out from the pack is Ridgeline Management's commitment to value. They strive to make all of their communities positive and vibrant places to live.

Indeed, Ridgeline Management is dedicated to keeping seniors as independent as possible for as long as possible, even when it’s more difficult to do so. Joy and wellness are the focus of each day and every member of its staff is committed to this mission.

A unique experience is offered at these senior care facilities. It’s not the same old routine everyday. It’s not getting told what to do. Integrity and honesty are built into the experience so the seniors are still in control of their lives.

Few senior care providers combine excellent medical care with as much freedom as Ridgeline Management. The company has one of the highest resident and family satisfaction rates of any in the states they currently operate.

Ridgeline Management has maintained an outstanding online reputation for several years, and regularly receives highly positive reviews from their families like the ones below from its winning community in Hobart, Indiana:

"The staff at Brentwood at Hobart were very friendly and took care of dad and made him as comfortable as possible during his stay. The security on the memory care floor was awesome and safety wasn't an issue." - Family member of a resident


We are very proud of this extraordinary team leader at The Vistas

CALA (The California Assisted Living Association) awarded their 2015 EXCELLENCE IN SERVICE AWARD to The Vistas Assisted Living & Memory Care’s Lonnie Julius as the Outstanding Department Director

“Lonnie is an incredible individual with a heart the size of Texas. Her willingness to do whatever it takes, and the time she invests in relationships, speaks louder than a marketing or advertising plan ever could,” says Administrator, Karilee Baird.

The manner in which Julius serves residents, family members and colleagues is inspiring, and there are many examples in which she goes above and beyond. She has provided child care for a team member, used her vacation time to visit a resident who relocated to Arkansas, drove four hours round-trip to pick up a resident’s daughter at the airport, and visited a resident during a stay in a rehab hospital an hour away. In addition to serving residents and family members, Julius is giving in her personal life as well. She is the mother of an adopted son, is certified to teach English as a second language, and has traveled frequently to volunteer in Africa.

She is described by others as kind-hearted, passionate, and driven. Baird says, “Her authentic love for people and drive to make a difference has impacted our community of residents, family members, staff, and friends immeasurably.”


Telikin Cares Touches Wood Ridge

Thanks to the nomination of Life Enrichment Coordinator, Chris Bayne, the residents of Wood Ridge are using a new Telikin Touch computer!

Chris nominated Wood Ridge for a Telikin Touch by writing to their Telikin Cares program. She wrote that a "Telikin Touch would help our residents take a huge leap forward in connecting with their families and the outside world, regardless of vision, small muscle control or other physical condition."  She also saw the benefits of playing games for the residents: "The memory game will be entertaining, therapeutic, and give our seniors a real sense of accomplishment."

With easy access to the news and the internet, Chris hopes that Telikin will help their already vibrant seniors stay current with news, politics, and health information.

We are so excited for the residents of Wood Ridge, thankful to Chris for nominating them, and Telikin Cares for honoring them with this gift.
