After my husband had hip replacement surgery, I needed to find a place for him to recuperate. I knew I wanted a 5-star facility but even more important to me was a place that had a strong PT/OT department.
Everyone we came into contact with at Park Ridge was always ready and willing to help or answer any of our questions. I learned to trust that he would be in good hands when I left him each day.
Again we thank you all for making Gene’s stay with you a better experience than we could have imagined
You made such a difference in my loved one’s life, and he enjoyed getting to know each of you who so graciously cared for him. Words cannot express the appreciation for the care you provided.David H.

“Jim and I want to thank you for taking care of our mom over the past 2 ½ years. The connection you had with her was remarkable and made me feel good to know that you were there when I wasn’t. It is still difficult to realize she is gone and we miss her so much. Her last days were as comfortable and pain free as we could make them and Jim and I were able to be with her every day until she passed away. I have a hard time finding the right words to convey how much your care meant. I hope you continue to have good health and blessings in your life.”
Dear Staff of Wing 124
My brother Jim and I want to extend our thanks to you for the care you gave to our mother Dolores V. We are very grateful for all that you did to make her comfortable and for the hugs she got from you when she was in the hall. The jobs you do are difficult and you all did so with love and respect. I knew that mom felt your love and I am very grateful for that so hopefully she didn’t feel so alone. Blessings to each of you and thank you again.
Thank you so much for your kindness, warmth, compassion, and nursing skill. Your respect that you have for all of your patients just shines.
Our deep gratitude to each and everyone of you, who so lovingly cared for our mom and grandmother, Dorothy. You became her family in such a very short time, so whenever she kissed your hand, that was truly a token of her love! She was so wonderful and we miss her deeply, as I’m sure you miss her too. Thank you again so very much for loving her. Our Love,
Thank you ever so much for working so hard to get Steven moved to Park Ridge. He is pleased to be here and I am delighted he is here. Your professionalism in handling the move was very appreciated. I had the utmost confidence that all would be fine once he was settled and indeed it was. You are a wonderful example of the quality of care that Park Ridge provides. Thank you,
Thank you for all of your energy, support, and time in allowing us to be here with Sam at Park Ridge. We are blessed and look forward to the services here.
I will never forget the caring and good love Wolfgang had in your place. And I will keep that in my heart.
Thank you for taking such good care of my friend, who was like a sister to me, and for being so friendly.
Unexpected turn of events, my mom had a significant stroke, and needed nursing home care. I was blessed to have run into a woman named Andrea M, who told me just what to do. Located in Shoreline, this facility is rated 5 stars by more than just me! Turned out that Andrea’s boss is also somebody I knew, Donna M. Both Andrea and Donna guided me through the process, made me and my mom feel comfortable, and her recovery is well beyond what any of my family and the doctors expected. It is impossible to list all of the names of the angels at this facility who are responsible for the excellent care and mom’s amazing recovery. Sherrell, our social worker at PR helped and guided us to a wonderful AFH in the end. Nobody wants to go into a facility like this, but if you need one love, care, hygiene, health, decent meals are all a part of this facility. You can trust and count on these professionals.
Park Ridge is safe, loving, responsible, and overall top notch! Hopefully my review will give you the courage to give this facility a chance. My mom had a severe stroke and has been here for 2 months so far, and let me tell you, after you hear all of the nightmares about nursing care centers out there, it is your worst nightmare to have to find one for a beloved family member. I am the type of person who researches everything and the greatest frustration I had during such a stressful time was the lack of available “consumer” reviewers on nursing homes. You can find reviews on medicare.gov but I wanted to know what PEOPLE thought about these care centers, not reviews by government paid staff. The staff here are so loving to their patients, even the ones who have dementia or are struggling with issues that make them combative. The nursing and rehab care is administered by reliable, consistent, professional RNs and therapists. The aides are also very responsible, gentle, and thorough, for example, in cleaning those who are incontinent and helping with feeding those who are relearning how to swallow. The administrators are constantly seeking feedback on how they might improve as a facility. And, it is CLEAN. If you ever need to find a place for a loved one, I suggest you give Park Ridge a chance. We toured another facility before deciding on this place – the other facility was stunningly beautiful, but the staff seemed detached from the care aspect. They couldn’t share with us any plan they would have for my mom regarding her rehabilitation. Park Ridge said all the right things when we did the tour, and the big question mark was – Can they Deliver?? The answer is a huge YES! I hope you never have to go through something like this, but if you do, I hope you find a facility as wonderful as Park Ridge.
I transferred my dad to Park Ridge from another facility, and I am so glad I did! Park Ridge rehab therapy services worked with him so that now he is talking a lot, feeds himself, gets up for activities, and they healed the pressure ulcer he got at the bad facility he came from. The staff at Park Ridge are very engaged with the patients, truly caring, enthusiastic! My dad loves it here.
My father has dementia, crippling arthritis, and heart trouble. He just moved to Park Ridge from another facility. Park Ridge is giving him superior care. Park Ridge staff have almost completely healed his pressure ulcer. The staff at Park Ridge are smart, motivated, and very kind. I would recommend this facility to anyone concerned about their loved ones getting good care.
We would like to thank you for your help and the care we received at Park Ridge. From the administration to the nurses on the 500 row, to the aids who were there with a smile to care for our needs and those who did the cleaning, it made the days pass by fast. It was the team work of all who work together and made it a success. It was 2 1/2 months from the time he was sent there to be beefed up so he could have surgery and recover to come home. Because of your staff's help and team work from our nurses Cheral, Red and the night crew, it was a huge success. Thank you all for your support. You can be proud of yourselves. THANK YOU AGAIN!
