Laurel Ridge Health Care Center

HQ: Ridgefield, CT   |  
Elegant" is the word we often hear used to describe Laurel Ridge. The attention to detail, evident on our wooded grounds, continues through our common areas into the individual rooms. Laurel Ridge is a modern, state-of-the-art facility of both sophistication and comfortable hospitality.

A great deal of thought has gone into every aspect of Laurel Ridge. The wallpaper, draperies, carpeting, lighting and furniture speak of the fine quality and taste. The dining rooms recall the tasteful ambiance of a fine hotel dining room or restaurant. More like formal living rooms, our lounges provide a warm atmosphere for private conversation, family gatherings, or a place to relax with a good book.

Accommodations at Laurel Ridge are either private or semi-private, and all have been furnished with an eye for style as well as comfort. Cable televisions and telephone hookups are available in each room. Some residents may choose to accent their room with their favorite belongings.

One hundred and twenty six residents receive top-quality care and personal attention at Laurel Ridge in an environment that encourages recovery.
