Elmcroft of North Ridge

Review by Kara


We chose Elmcroft of North Ridge for my father-in-law. He requires a high level of care because he has dementia and a history of wandering, sundowning, and being difficult. He requires a lot of care, so he was in-between a skilled nursing facility and memory care...

Sunrise at North Hills

Review by Cathy


Sunrise is an older facility with double rooms where you share the bathroom and the kitchen. The bedrooms were very tiny, but it gave the feeling of having your own room. You had to rent the furniture if you're going to stay for a short time. The people were very friendly, nice, and caring.
