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. It was very difficult to find that combination of places that could handle someone like him and not be a full nursing home, because nursing homes usually don't have lock downs and other necessities for people with dementia and wandering issues. He's been in a few facilities and they could not care for him in the facility he was already in, so we had to look for others. We wanted to delay putting him into a nursing home as long as possible for a few reasons, one is they couldn't take care of him because of the wandering and other behavioral issues, but also because nursing homes are fairly depressing. We thought Elmcroft of North Ridge could take care of him well. They did a really good assessment of him and they had a good plan in place. They took a risk, and they handled it really well. It's a clean facility. The people are really nice and we've been pretty happy with them. The staff is great. You can ask them questions like how the days have been and any issues that they've had. One thing that really stuck in my mind is the dining room. There's a kitchen attached to the dining room, so when you walk in, you smell food, because they're cooking it there. It's more like home that way. I've never seen that in other places. They're really good.
