Long-Term Care

Our “community of care” in a five-star setting transforms long-term care to living life with dignity

West Ridge is proud to be known as a “community of care” where each person feels welcome, well-known and ensured that each life is worth living. For people no lonWest Ridge Richard Curphey with Elder Residentger able to care for themselves in their own home, West Ridge offers the only registered facility in Cedar Rapids to embrace the philosophies of the Eden Alternative in a home-like setting.

Along with providing 24-hour nursing care, the facility also offers comprehensive rehabilitation services. Our goal is to help people reach quality outcomes and return home or to a lesser level of care. And when returning home is not an option, but comfort and independence are still the focus, West Ridge can provide the only secure facility for residents with dementia in the Cedar Rapids area.

While keeping long-term residents comfortable and independent in our home-like care center is always on the forefront, so is maintaining their connection with the community. West Ridge Care Center keeps community ties strong through relationships with Truman Elementary, churches and play groups, as well as other organizations and businesses, including Hospice. Outings including shopping trips, eating out, and trips to local attractions also play a large part of our Activity Program.

We are proud of our reputation as a place where patients receive quality care and individualized attention based on their needs. Our facility and highly-trained staff is tailored to provide an innovative treatment approach to patients. The recognition of West Ridge Care Center as a four-star nursing home is due to the 20 years we have provided outstanding service to residents, their families and the Cedar Rapids community.
