"My Mom has been at Maple Ridge since shortly after opening as Spring Village in 2016. There were hiccups at first as with any start up. Since then the ownership has changed...therefore the name change. I can only say (as an RN) that I am consistently impressed with the level of care and the genuine CARING of the staff. You would be hard pressed to find a better facility for your loved one."
"For two years, my mom lived at Maple Ridge. Much of the staff became her extended family. She bonded with several and for that I'll be forever grateful. Even during the stress of the pandemic, the staff have been kind and patient, and I know my mom proved challenging from time to time. Trust in Maple Ridge to treat your loved one like a cherished family member. They excel at it."

To help our residents truly thrive despite the limitations of their memory loss, our memory care program is intentionally named AspireCare. To that end, we custom design a thoughtful rhythm to each resident’s day that includes all of the research-proven components of good care for those with Alzheimer’s and related dementias.

We aspire to provide the best possible life for our residents and do not let their memory loss limit them. Our days start with appropriate, nutritious meals, senior-friendly exercise, meaningful activities that provide purpose, entertainment, trips, and music, and ends with a good night’s sleep. Our nursing staff is unobtrusively there, to help with any health care needs that may arise.
