“Meadow Ridge is undoubtedly the best decision we ever made.”
After 47 years in Scarsdale, NY, Grady and his late wife Maggie moved to Meadow Ridge in 2002. “I don’t have the foggiest recollection of how we heard of Meadow Ridge,” says Grady. “But I’m certainly glad we did.” In December 2006, Maggie had a stroke and moved into the Health Center, where she remained until her passing in May 2009. “The care she received in the Health Center was absolutely superb in every respect,” says Grady.
Along with the tremendous value of the care Maggie received, all three of the couple’s children live within an hour and a half of Meadow Ridge. “Being here is a great comfort to the kids,” Grady says, “because they don’t have to worry about their dad.”
“It didn’t take me long to realize it was a wonderful decision”
“We moved to Meadow Ridge in November 2001,” says Enid. She and her late husband, Raymond, quickly found life here rewarding, even more so when he needed care in the Health Center. “We had looked all over Connecticut,” says Enid. “It was a relief when Meadow Ridge opened in our own backyard.”
“It was simple once we found Meadow Ridge.”
Betty Lee Kent and her late husband, Martin, started their search for a retirement community on a sour note – less-than-satisfactory tours, long waits for admission and a lack of excitement overall. Then they discovered Meadow Ridge. “It was beautiful and welcoming from the moment we walked in.” says Betty. “The Atrium was gorgeous, the setting was nice, and all the people were so friendly.”
“Meadow Ridge was the obvious choice.”
After 52 years in Redding, CT, Bill and Mary Morris began looking at retirement communities. “We were empty nesters and decided to get the heck out of the big house,” says Bill. And after 12 years at Meadow Ridge, they’re still pleased with their choice.
“This is a very good place to live.”
Judy Manderbach and her husband Aaron first discovered Meadow Ridge when looking for a community for her parents. Afterward, Judy resolved they would not wait too long to choose a community for themselves and they were one of the first couples to move in. They looked at several communities, but none measured up to Meadow Ridge. “Because the community was just being built, we saw the plans at the beginning,” says Judy. “It was immediately apparent the apartments were much nicer than anything we’d seen.”
“There’s so much to do, and I’ve loved every minute of it.”
Lenore “Lea” Mintz has been a resident of Meadow Ridge for three and a half years. Lea first moved to a condominium home when the house she had shared with her late husband in Norwalk became too much to take care of. Her three sons were pleased with the move but worried that she was still alone. She was grateful for her children’s attentiveness and was prompted by their concerns to visit Meadow Ridge. “I cannot tell you how pleased my children were,” Lea says about her decision to move to Meadow Ridge.
