The last time I was at RidgeWood Health Campus was to visit a friend. I was his guardian until he passed and he was in the regular nursing home part of the facility. When he was there, it was $12,000 a month. They had so many workers passing through constantly. They start there and then they quit so every day there’s a new person there that doesn’t know your loved one. It was hard trying to keep up with who was taking care of him and making the decisions on whether he needed a bath and that kind of stuff. They had a lot of patients, but they didn’t have enough staff to handle it. I was getting a lot of complaints about the food too but we lived close enough that we kept in contact and made sure he was eating well. They had a psychiatrist and a large staff of physicians whom the residents could meet with. They have nurses on the floor too. It seemed like they kept them occupied in the Legacy side, the memory side of it. In their assisted living part, the residents are walking around and they’re kind of on their own a lot. In the Legacy unit, they have to be able to walk around and keep busy so I think that changes the dynamic of the care center.
