I Visited This Facility

The Residence at Glen Riddle is cozy, but it wouldn't be the right choice for my in-laws. The living quarters allow you to have a kitchenette and microwave, but not really an oven to bake cookies for your grandkids. The staff was a little boring, but nice. The dining area is nice and clean enough, but there were a couple of things that need attention. It's not as well-maintained as I would have preferred.

We chose The Residence at Glen Riddle. My father has been there for two weeks, and so far, so good. He likes it there, and we're happy. They have a dementia ward which is where my father is, so that's nice. They have an outside area, and they tell us to come to the activities all the time. It has a nice atmosphere, has very good care thus far, and is probably the best-priced facility out there.

Our experience at The Residence at Glen Riddle has been very positive, so far. The staff is very accommodating, efficient, and nice. The food and the accommodations are good. I don't have anything negative to say about it. Every Monday morning, they do a historical tour on a bus around the county. They play music every morning in a sing-along. The supervisor has been very responsive to everything. The staff seems to be very well-trained on how to deal with people. We went to the cocktail hour once. I've eaten a couple of meals, and it's very good for institutional food. The facilities are very beautiful. They don't have long corridors, and it's quite homey, in a way. I think they are very comparable with the price, and we're satisfied with what they hav to offer. They're monitoring his medications and oxygen which he cannot do by himself, and that's what we're paying extra for.

Description of The Residence at Glen Riddle


At The Residence at Glen Riddle, we are proud to have created a community that allows seniors who need assisted living services or memory care to live life to its fullest. With our daily activities of outings, movie nights, Tai chi and WiiTM bowling, our residents can tailor an activity schedule around their interests and activity level.

The Residence at Glen Riddle is owned by Blue Harbor Senior Living. An operator of senior communities based out of Portland, Oregon, Blue Harbor Senior Living has communities in seven states.

Featured Amenities

Our residents don't have an ordinary dining experience at our community. The World Travel Club and the Family Traditions recipe program allow residents to enjoy culinary creations from around the world and to share family recipes with their friends. We also develop individual menu plans for residents who require specialty diets.

The Residence at Glen Riddle's spacious studio or one-bedroom apartments just need a personal touch for them to become a new home. Each suite has a kitchenette, closets, a private bathroom and an emergency call system. Monthly rent includes all utilities except for cable TV and personal phone. Our residents enjoy a respite from household chores since we take care of housekeeping and laundry.

Available Services

During the day we hold a variety of activities, such as arts and crafts, movie nights, fitness classes or outings, so residents have opportunities to socialize and stay active. But for quiet moments of relaxation, there is a lovely gazebo where our residents can watch the birds or a library where they can read a good book or play a card game.

At the Wellness Center, residents can visit our nursing staff to report any health care concerns or arrange for on-site visits by their personal physician. For seniors who need memory care, we offer an Assisted Living Alzheimer's and Dementia Memory Support program that provides customized services so a resident lives a comfortable life. We also offer memory support groups, so families can be involved in their loved one's care.

For seniors needing assisted living services and memory care set within a homelike community, The Residence at Glen Riddle is the place to call home.
