Resident Testimonials

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our residents say:

I saw the ad on TV and it was everything I wanted. I can fix food in my room or come downstairs to meals with friends. And, the staff take care of all of your needs.


I met Carol at Welcome Home, a hospice here in East Ridge. I’m now receiving palliative care and no longer on hospice. I love it here. I have my own space when I want it or I can go in the lobby and socialize or go to an activity.


I’ve made so many new friends here, the food is good and Connie, our Activities Director, keeps us entertained with all kinds of fun things to do


I’ve always enjoyed gardening. I met a new friend who I started helping out in the community garden and soon began spending more time in it. I enjoy sharing cucumbers, peppers and tomatoes with my friends and staff. I really appreciate having my room cleaned each week. The food portions are huge!
