LIBERTY RIDGE OFFERS RESIDENTS A COMFORTABLE, FAITH-BASED ENVIRONMENT

Liberty Ridge Senior Living Community has a perfect place for you. Whether you’re looking for an assisted living apartment with a wonderful array of amenities from which to choose or you would like to find a Memory Care Neighborhood for a loved one dealing with dementia, you’re sure to discover just the right residence at Liberty Ridge.


Liberty Ridge’s mission is to provide high-quality affordable housing and services in a caring Christian atmosphere to area seniors. People of all faiths are warmly invited to become part of this refreshing senior living community.


Choosing to move into an assisted living apartment at Liberty Ridge is an option that is available when you feel you can no longer maintain your household on your own. Liberty Ridge is one of only three places in Lexington that are certified by the state of Kentucky to provide assisted living services to residents. You can retain your cherished independence while receiving as much help as you want or need with daily activities of living. Liberty Ridge strives to provide you just the right amount of support and assistance in a way that allows you to remain independent and in control of your life. Here you will have access to convenient services, security and optional personal assistance – even weekly scheduled transportation. The apartments include full bathrooms with safety features, including low-barrier walk-in showers, and

kitchenettes with refrigerators and microwave ovens. No need to worry about cooking, all residents receive three quality hot restaurant style meals each day. Trained caregivers are available to assist you 24 hours a day. Every staff member at Liberty Ridge is carefully chosen because they demonstrate a “servant’s heart,” treating every resident with genuine warmth and caring attention, helping them maintain their dignity and maximum independence.


For those who have a loved one who is dealing with memory loss, Liberty Ridge offers a sympathetic solution in its Memory Care Neighborhood. Residents live in a secure, homelike assisted living environment where their memories are cherished and their well-being is of utmost importance. Professionals trained to deal with memory loss, early-stage Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia conditions will give you peace of mind, knowing your loved one is secure and in loving, helpful hands. The staff knows how to communicate effectively while helping residents enjoy a full life. There are no more than nine residents in the Memory Care Neighborhood, which means individual residents can receive specific, personalized attention. There are plenty of opportunities for community activities as well as a specially designed “quiet room” for tranquility and agitation

reduction. Family members and caregivers are incorporated into the residents’ lives for comforting continuity, and they may also participate in support groups to share their experiences.


Liberty Ridge began as a non-profit ministry of Eastland Church of God (which is right next door to the community) to help meet the growing need in Lexington for high-quality, affordable housing and services for retirees. It was established in 1999. Its governing volunteer board includes directors from the community. As a non-profit organization, Liberty Ridge offers the most affordable assisted living opportunity in the area, with service fees that are less than half the cost of a nursing home and flexible services – you pay only for the ones you need. Liberty Ridge is managed by SeniorLife Solutions, Inc.


Liberty Ridge is located at 701 Liberty Ridge Lane in Lexington on 30 beautiful acres that include walking paths and a duck pond. It may just be the place you’ve been hoping to find.
