Independent Living


We think ‘choices’ has a nice ring to it.

The word ‘choice’ is part of our everyday culture at East Ridge at Cutler Bay — from independent living and throughout all levels of care on our south Miami campus.

Start by choosing from our bungalow-style 1- or 2-bedroom Villas, or our Garden Residences, which are available in sizes up to 3 bedrooms, 3 baths. All are designed to reflect the architectural charm and colors of Key West.

Once you move in, the choices only continue. They’re made more possible with:

• Chef-prepared meals
• Interior, exterior and seasonal maintenance
• Weekly housekeeping and linen services
• Utilities paid (except phone and Internet)
• 24-hour security
• Scheduled transportation

With all this taken care of, you have the freedom to enjoy our campus amenities:

• Multiple dining venues
• State-of-the-art fitness center and wellness programs
• Heated outdoor pool and water fitness classes
• Beautiful landscaping and walking paths
• Library and resource center
• Creative arts studio and crafts room
• Beauty salon/barbershop

We’re Type A

In your search for the right independent living community, chances are you’ve heard different senior living terms bandied about. But if you’ve heard the terms “Type A” and “LifeCare,” your search just became much easier.

Type A contracts, like those found at East Ridge, are considered the gold standard in retirement living for their assurance of health care and remarkable asset protection.

Frequently asked questions

'Revive. Relax. Rediscover.' What does that mean?

It’s our promise to you! We take care of many household chores – think housekeeping, maintenance, cooking – and big worries – like providing you with premier health care, for life. That gives you time and opportunity to do whatever you like: Revive an old hobby, kick back and relax, or rediscover a lifelong passion. The choice is now, and always, yours.

What is an entrance fee?

Your entrance fee depends upon the size of residence you select. Your entrance fee secures your residence here, and gives you priority access to our full continuum of care, should you ever need it, for as long as you need it. If you leave East Ridge, a percentage of your entrance fee will be refunded to you or your estate.

What is a monthly service fee?

The monthly service fee is a single monthly bill that covers every service, amenity and convenience we offer. It pays for all maintenance, housekeeping, one meal daily, water, cable, electricity, unlimited use of community spaces and much more. The amount you pay depends upon the size of residence you choose, and number of people who will live there. (A second person pays a significantly lower second-person monthly fee and no additional entrance fee.)

What amenities, conveniences and services are included in my monthly service fee?

Everything we offer at East Ridge is available to you. This is just a sampling:

  • Interior, exterior and seasonal maintenance
  • Weekly housekeeping and flat linen service
  • Scheduled transportation and outings
  • Outdoor pool and covered cabanas
  • Fitness center and wellness programs
  • Dining and 1 chef-prepared meal daily
