One of the most important benefits of living at East Ridge at Cutler Bay is the availability of assisted living and memory care as well as skilled nursing, long term care and rehabilitation, offered onsite through Three Palms Health Center.
This continuum of care provides peace of mind for residents and families knowing there is never a need to move outside of the community or find someplace offering additional care.
Additionally, the life plan entrance fee and monthly maintenance charge ensure that even if you and your spouse require different levels of care, there will be no additional cost. For example, one person may continue living in their independent living residence while his/her spouse is in the memory care community.
“An advantage not typically considered is the comfort of knowing you’re living in a community where you are established and are part of a family,” explained Mary Scott Russell, director of marketing. “Living at East Ridge means people know you. You aren’t a stranger. It’s also much less stressful as friends can visit whenever they like without having to drive. It’s not unusual for residents from independent living to join their friends at the Health Center for meals and activities. And, some community activities are specifically held at the Health Center to encourage this interaction.”
Living at Three Palms doesn’t restrict residents and they continue to participate in activities they enjoy. It may be to attend a concert or lecture in the Lifestyle Center or take a class.
“At East Ridge, the kindness of neighbors is of tremendous value,” she added. “Recently, when one of our residents was recuperating in skilled nursing, her neighbors brought her mail when they stopped in to chat and someone else cared for her dog. Benefits like these are hard to measure but are so important.”
