Ridge Care Senior Living is led by experienced senior living professionals who fully embrace the concept that the work that takes place in our communities is far more important than the work that happens at the home office.

So, our home office leadership team:

  • Casts a compelling vision of what our communities should become
  • Works to remove organizational barriers that prevent that vision from becoming a reality
  • And then gets out of the way and lets our caregivers do what they do best: provide great care. 

After all, if our team members are too busy working for us, they won’t have time to work for your loved one.

Speaking of our team members, here are a few who make Ridge Care a great place to live and work:

Donna Simmons
CNA at Walnut Ridge for 16 years.

Stephanie Bryant
MedTech Supervisor / CNA Mentor at Mallard Ridge for 10 years

Seth Moore
Director of Transportation at Deerfield Ridge for 8 years.
