    Echo Ridge was very nice and clean. Everything would have been perfect, but the accommodations were small. My friend, who I was looking for, wasn’t expecting them to be that small. Other than that, they were very nice. The people were very nice. The food was good.

    Echo Ridge was very nice with good amenities and atmosphere. The residents spoke up, too. They had a pool table and a TV lounge. It needed updating, but it was suitable, just not exciting. They had social get togethers and showed us the availability of snacks and coffee. They played cards and billiards, and went on outings to pick up groceries.

    I was very impressed with Echo Ridge. The person who showed me around was very friendly and answered all of my questions. I liked the units they showed me. The whole feel of the place was really good with really nice grounds surrounding the place. The price was reasonable, too. They have in-house nurses and doctors available if the residents need extra help.
