Hear What Others Are Saying About Green Ridge Village
“I just returned to my cottage after a 14 day therapeutic stay in Carriage Courts, what a wonderful experience that was. My room was clean and nicely decorated with a wonderful window to see outside. It was a private room with its own bathroom. Staff brought me new items they thought would make me more comfortable although I didn’t ask for them. My medication was handled in a professional manner. All of the staff was friendly, courteous and helpful. It was absolutely perfect. The dining room was within walking distance and three delicious meals were served daily by a friendly and capable staff. We at Green Ridge Village are extremely fortunate to have such a wonderful place to go to when we are in need.”
- Dr. Marguerite Bridge
“I thought you’d like to know that mom called me today, after the first night in her new home and she is SO happy! Her voice was strong and she was telling me all about the view from her window, the people she’s already met, everyone who has stopped in to check on her and help out as needed, her first medical visit from the doctor, etc. She just loves her room and said the whole thing couldn’t be more perfect. She is grateful, and her family is relieved that the right place has been found! I haven’t seen her room yet, so we’ll be going over on Sunday to check on her and see if she needs anything. Thanks for all your help.”

"My family and I can never thank the people at Swaim Health Center enough for all the love, compassion and care that you and the staff showed our father. He was at Swaim since December 2009. After a while, he considered Swaim his home and so did we. We will definitely recommend Swaim Health Center to any one who needs this kind of service."

"Dealing with mom’s dementia and advancing age has been challenging; there are always new issues that arise. The staff at Green Ridge Village has been consistently supportive and proactive in addressing her needs and my concerns."
- Marijon Shearer
"From the moment I drove onto the grounds of Green Ridge Village, I felt very much at home. The surrounding wooded acres and the diverse residents I met helped to make my decision. I truly love where I live."
- Janet Polak
“It has been a financially good decision to move here because we don’t pay taxes, building maintenance, homeowner insurance, water, sewer, snow removal or lawn maintenance as we did in our former home. We came here 4 years ago, in our early 60’s, and this past fall, Cletus was able to do a 6-hour hike into the Adirondack Mountains and a 4-hour hike at Rickets Glen State Park to see 22 waterfalls."
- Cletus and Dorene Benjamin
"The proximity of Carlisle Barracks with PX, commissary, and pharmacy fulfilled one of our retirement community search requirements. My wife and I continue to be impressed with the diversity of professional backgrounds held by fellow residents. Fair winds and following seas have finally brought us home.”
