The community combines residential apartment-home living with the availability of personal assistance, help with medications, and a variety of convenience and support services.

"We provide older adults of all financial means with a wonderful alternative to a nursing home or to struggling alone at home," says Eagle Ridge Administrator Dennis Toohill.

Residents live in private apartments that they furnish and decorate to their taste. Each of the studio and one-bedroom floor plans include a kitchenette, spacious bathroom with shower and grab bars, individually-controlled heating and air conditioning, and an emergency alert system.

Certified nursing assistants, working under the direction of a licensed nurse, are on-duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Meals, housekeeping and laundry are among the included services.

"Residents also benefit from all of the opportunities that are available to socialize with friends and neighbors and to participate in activities and special programs," says Toohill.

Gardant Management -- the company that has operated Eagle Ridge since the community opened in 2003 -- is based in Bradley, Illinois.

"Our focus," says Rod Burkett, CEO of Gardant, "is to provide the residents of Eagle Ridge with the love, compassion and dignity they deserve and the help and assistance they need. Our emphasis is on helping each resident achieve and maintain as much independence as possible for as long as possible."
