As a continuing care retirement community, Grace Ridge, located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Morganton, NC, offers what we like to call the best of all three worlds – independent living, assisted living and skilled nursing care.
Residents who move to Grace Ridge Retirement Community as independent living understand that their health care needs will be taken care of, whether it is assisted living, memory care or skilled nursing care without leaving their retirement home of choice.
Should your needs change, you’ll be secure in the knowledge that high-quality supportive services and care are available in an attractive, professionally staffed environment for essentially the same cost as living in your residence.
At Grace Ridge, our assisted living provides home-like care for seniors who need assistance with their daily living activities and/or administration of medications. Many assisted living facilities are staffed with care assistants around the clock but with only part-time nursing care. At Grace Ridge, our assisted living unit provides care by a licensed nurse 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The average cost of assisted living in North Carolina is $4,500. Assisted living level of care at Grace Ridge can be much lower than the state average depending on the contract type you agree upon when you move in as an independent living retiree.
We all know that dementia is heart-breaking for loved ones. Our memory care unit consists of a care team specially trained to take care of persons with memory disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease. Our Life Enrichment team also provides education and support for family members of residents with dementia.
When choosing a retirement community, don’t be short-sighted. Think long term and how you want to be cared for and how you want your spouse to be cared for in their later years. With our Life Care concept, Grace Ridge makes choosing easy. Call us today for more information on what we consider one of the best assisted living options in North Carolina.
