Arbors at Ridges
Senior living in Burnsville is what Ebenezer Ridges does best.
From independent senior living to assisted living, Arbors at Ridges provides older adults easy access to housing services that truly fit their needs and their lifestyles. Located across the street from the Ebenezer Ridges Campus, Arbors at Ridges is convenient to the Ebenezer Ridges Campus–which offers a true continuum of senior care–from independent living apartments to assisted living to skilled nursing with short term and long-term care options. Our campus keeps seniors connected–giving them access to lounge areas, a chapel, a coffee shop, a gift shop and a beauty/barber shop. Residents from all buildings on campus participate in many of the activities scheduled at our other buildings. Lifelong Learning is the process of keeping your mind, body and spirit engaged—at any age—and is a featured program.
A residence with services for income-qualified adults
Located on the Ebenezer Ridges Campus in Burnsville, Ebenezer Ridge Point Apartments provides affordable homes for people age 62 and older. This independent living community is financed by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) which provides Section 8 rental assistance to low-income older adults.
Assisted Living is apartment living for people who are at least 55* years old. At Ebenezer a basic service package is included in monthly rent and additional care services can be added as needed. Assisted living is suited to people who do not require advanced, full-time medical assistance. It is usually less expensive than skilled nursing in a care center. Ebenezer sites have a nurse on duty during business hours. Night hours are covered by nurse attendants.
In conjunction with Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, Minneapolis-based Ebenezer Society has opened its new memory care addition at Ebenezer Ridges in Burnsville, Minn. The new addition for the first time brings memory care residences to the campus, which currently provides independent and assisted living, as well as skilled nursing care, transitional care, and adult day and child care.
According to the Alzheimer’s Association, an estimated 5.2 million Americans have Alzheimer’s disease in 2013. By 2025, the number of people age 65 and older with Alzheimer’s disease is estimated to reach 7.1 million—a 40 percent increase from those currently affected. Even more alarming, by 2050, the number of people age 65 and older with Alzheimer’s disease may nearly triple to a projected 13.8 million, barring the development of medical breakthroughs to prevent, slow or stop the disease.
Ebenezer is all too aware of the gaps in Alzheimer’s and dementia preparedness.
“Sadly right now, there is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease,” says Erin Hilligan, campus administrator at Arbors at Ridges. “So it’s imperative to recognize the symptoms, understand the process and prepare an action plan for the future.” Hilligan strongly recommends meeting with a doctor when changes are noticed. Occupational therapists can also complete cognitive tests that can give patients and their families a base line of the progress of the disease. This is an important step in planning what kind of care is necessary.
In the early stages of the disease, caregivers can hire assistance to provide care at home or at the residence of a loved one. Support can include household chores, running errands and personal assistance. In addition, there are adult day programs available that offer recreational and social activities for the patient, while providing well-needed breaks for the caretaker. As the disease progresses, 24-hour continuous care becomes necessary and is usually overwhelming for the caretaker.
