Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: How do I know if Caley Ridge Assisted Living is right for me?
Each person is different and their preferences and needs largely determine which long-term care programs are right for them. Caley Ridge offers non-medical personal care services for people who want the peace of mind that comes with a senior living community, but who do not require ongoing skilled nursing care. Their services are ideal for people who need mild to moderate assistance with their daily activities, such as eating, bathing, dressing, or maintaining personal hygiene.
The community guarantees each person’s safety during their stay. If the caregivers are not equipped to care for someone to the degree they need, Caley Ridge may suggest another nearby facility that offers the right kind of services.
To find out if Caley Ridge is the right choice, prospective residents can ask themselves the following questions about their level of care:
- Is the person ambulatory?
- Does the person need ongoing medical attention
- Does the person have memory impairments, Alzheimer's or dementia?
- Does the person need rehabilitation?
Although the community’s staff help residents move throughout the community as-needed, they are not equipped to help people who are permanently confined to their beds. The same principle applies to people who need ongoing medical attention: the community does not offer skilled nursing care and is not a suitable alternative for people who need it.
Additionally, Caley Ridge may not be a suitable choice for people with memory impairments, Alzheimer's or dementia. The residence does not have a dedicated memory care community or memory care program, and it does not offer specialized services for people living with Alzheimer's disease. If a person’s memory loss or Alzheimer's disease requires memory care services to ensure their safety, they may consider another nearby assisted living community that specializes in treatments for people with Alzheimer's and dementia. Caley Ridge’s staff are happy to work with people living with Alzheimer’s disease to help them find a memory care community in the area that can help them with their symptoms.

Q: Does Caley Ridge offer short-term care programs for people who receive in-home care?
Yes! In-home care recipients can stay at Caley Ridge for up to 30 consecutive days as part of their respite care program. Respite care guests stay in the same spacious units as assisted living residents and enjoy many of the same amenities.

Q: How much does Caley Ridge cost?
Each person’s room and board depends on their floor plan. Larger floor plans typically cost more than smaller units and the more services a person needs, the more their monthly cost will be. For example, a person who lives in a one-bedroom apartment may pay more than someone who lives in a studio.
