The beautiful surroundings of nature in a safe and secure environment

West Ridge Care Center is one of the first free-standing care facilities in Iowa specifically Dementia Caredesigned for the care and treatment of Elders with dementia. While this secure memory care unit, which we call The Garden, allows us to meaningfully and safely care for your loved ones, it also provides us with the opportunity to host beautiful surrounding grounds for all elders to enjoy in a safe environment. The Garden, our CCDI unit (Chronic Confusion & Dementing Illness Unit), has a peaceful enclosed courtyard with planters, bird feeders, water fountains and seating. Following the Eden Alternative philosophy, The Garden is blossoming with plants and flowers creating a human habitat for living. The songs of birds and the beauty of green growing plants helps eliminate the plagues that can sometimes affect elders with dementia. By offering this simple but important aspect of our care facility, our elders are able to experience a more active and independent living situation.
