I Am A Friend Or Relative Of A Current/Past Resident

Echo Ridge is a wonderful place. I'm very impressed with it. My dad's room is nice, updated, and clean. The food is very tasty, and there is a wide range of options to eat. They have puzzles, bingo, entertainment, movies, shopping, and parties. They have balconies, coffee bistro, well-lit areas, covered patio porches, and free internet. The staff is caring, friendly, and go beyond their job. Echo Ridge is worth every dime my dad pays for what he receives.

We visited Echo Ridge, it's nice, however, we did not like the staff member, because she placed too much pressure on us. The location is good, and the grounds were nice. The apartments we saw were very nice, fully furnished with a laundry room and kitchen. We were there for lunch, and the food was good. They always have activities, they have outside entertainment, a library, game room, and just about anything you could want to do.

My visit to Echo Ridge was very pleasant. It's fairly new, I had lunch there, and the food was excellent. I was very pleased with what I saw. The staff was very helpful, very pleasant, and introduced me to the housekeeping people. It looked very well-run, and very organized. They serve three meals a day, and the people are welcome to come in anytime and get food. They do housekeeping, and have transportation in and out of town.

Echo Ridge is a very beautiful place with beautiful grounds. Everybody was friendly and the people we sat with at lunch were very nice. We really liked it. The only thing we didn't like was the traffic getting there. We couldn't afford it because the price it was too high for us. I like the rooms. We looked at a second story room with a nice balcony and a kitchen where the table was in front of windows, which was nice. We loved it.

Echo Ridge was really nice and the people looked like they were enjoying it. They're having a good time and the food looked like it was very good. They had a crafts room and a nice walking area. The staff was pleasant, helpful, and answered all my questions.

I visited Echo ridge. I saw a studio and the rooms were small. They have activities -- I saw ladies doing mosaic work and some guys playing cards. They had a library and viewing room for watching TV and movies. The staff was very courteous and knowledgeable. They have a very attractive and well-kept courtyard, and a very clean building.

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.
