Having just spent over two weeks there as a physical rehab patient I can honestly state that you could not do better that Chapel Ridge. I can only hope that when my times comes to be a long term patient that they are still in operation The staff is without question both first rate as professionals and as human beings. Ken T.
A bunch of Angels work here. They did a great job taking care of my Dad for almost 2 years. Mom and I came in daily to check on Dad and they always took care of us with grace and love. I love the staff from CR that took care of my Dad in 2015 and 2016. Even Sparks was impressed with his skin condition for being in bed so much. High five Chappel Ridge! �
Well I have been there for almost 4 years and I really did not think I were going to make it but I thank the lord for letting me make it a lot of times I just wanted to quit but I held on and I have seen some go and some come in but you just can't but love them and I do love them a lot of them makes me smile and some make me cry when the lord take them home to be with him but I really do have a lot of workers that I like and love from my bosses to my cna housekeeping laundry well you are know who you are just want to say I love you and thank for all you for what you do for our little babies if it was not for us what would happen to them so I'm glad to be apart of the champs thank you champ ridge
My husband was in this rehab place for almost six weeks then he died.If I could have, he would not have spent a week here. He was walking when he entered, but I never saw him walk a step. He was put in a wheelchair and had a bell pinned to his shirt. When he tried to get up, the bell would ring and some attendant came and pushed back into the chair. When this wasn't working for staff, my husband was placed into a reclining chair where he could not even try to stand. I was there almost every day - lived close by and never saw him walking. No attempt was made to help him. After about two weeks, hospice was called in - that was about the last of his care from Chapel Ridge. He died of what a nurse told me - Urinary Tract Infection. He died on October 21. However, hospice was not called until after midnight. Therefore, his date of death became confused. Hospice finally came after a long wait, and pronounced him dead on October 22. It was all a nightmare. His roommate sat in the door - so much for hospice privacy! I have cried for so long. No bed to rest. Told to go home and I would be called. I was called and told that my husband had died. I will never recover from this nightmare at Chapel Ridge. - Nora Stanley
This is a little older building but that staff has been great. My Dad has been here for almost a year and has been well cared for. Every place has good and bad... But this place sees the bad and got rid of it based on customer feed back. They listened to us and we have been super happy with staff ever since we got here. We are now in a private room and Dad is good with this place. No one wants to be here but if you have to be... this is the place. Thank you for quality CR. Also, location location location! I can stop by as often as I want because it is nearby.
I know. It's probably a bit weird to put in a Yelp review for a skilled nursing and rehab facility, but if ever a facility deserved it, it's this one. My father entered Chapel Ridge in April after a bad fall. To complicate things, he had Alzheimer's. We were concerned about his care as he tended to wander, was sometimes feeling lost and I know I probably had ideas about nursing homes in my mind based on bad stories I'd heard. But what I found at chapel ridge was quite different. Dad had such excellent care from the team there with his OT, PT and Speech therapist. They worked steadily with him for improvement. When it became apparent that dad wasn't able to progress due to the Alzheimer's, we transitioned him to residency. The team of nurses and aides were just amazing with him. They called whenever there was a change in him, a question about his care, or an overall concern. They loved on him, talked with him and let him be a part of their family--because that is what they are--a big family. You know, you can make people work, but you can't make people care. And at Chapel Ridge they really really do. I found that I didn't have to worry about Dad because I knew his every need was being taken care of. If you are looking for a care facility that will watch over and care for a loved one the way you would if you could, this is the place. It's not fancy by any means but it is full of heart, compassion and love.
Dad was at Chapel Ridge for a short time and Mom was there for about 16 months. We could not have asked for better care than what they received. During the recent virus issue, I believe the management and staff exercised due care and protocol to minimize the danger. I do not hesitate to recommend Chapel Ridge for the care of a loved one.
The staff have taken very good care of my mother. They keep us updated when anything out of the ordinary happens with her. We go to visit on a variety of days and times and the people there have always been friendly and attentive. It nice to see their kindness and gentleness.
I had A TERRIBLE experience with their in-take staff, which is as far as I got. They asked what I had for insurance; and, when I said "Medicare", they said they weren't taking any Medicare patients at that time. When I said, "That's ok, I can also pay cash", they still turned me away, saying, "We are not allowed BY LAW to take cash, after we've refused your Medicare." !??!Just that, and nothing more - not even a, "Let us help you find another facility", or "Maybe we can recommend a therapist somewhere else", or even a "What seems to be the problem? Maybe we can help you find somewhere to go to get the therapy you need." They just refused to treat me, and watched as I walked away. Totally heartless and uncaring people. Thank god they couldn't take me! I wouldn't go there now, even if THEY paid ME.Stay away - all they care about is MONEY. These people have no honest compassion in their hearts for those who are suffering, they are just a bunch of soulless robots.
This seems to be a very good place . The staff really cares and the place is really clean at all times . We have had my mother here for about 1year . They just remodeled the rooms and even put large screen TV in each person's area . Thanks for caringJames gannMy thanks to the staff my mother passed last night , they help make the passing very kind and caring . Though this very bad time they told us what was happening as things went by . To have so many residents I think they do a great job . Again cindy and I thank you allJames gann
I was a patient at Chapel Ridge for over two weeks as a therapy patient and can honestly state that it doesn't get any better. The staff is first rate not only as health professionals but as human beings who are dealing with other human beings. I an only assume that the two negative reviews I read were written by the competition. I dealt with a lot of staff and thare was not a rude or indifferent one there. Hopefully when my times comes I can find such a place.
