My dad's stay started as respite care and turned into a permanent stay. The ambiance is like a hotel and he loves the staff; they've been amazing. They all knew him by name very quickly and were looking out for him. At meals they automatically bring him a cup of black coffee, like a hometown cafe you've gone to all your life. There are daily activities to keep everyone engaged, not sitting in their room. This big change has been about as smooth as it could be.
Awesome in every way! The only odor I have ever detected is from the kitchen, and those make you want to pull up a chair. Wow! Friendly! Absolutely. Caring staff? The best. Enough staff? Yes. Do they call you if something happens? Immediately. We have been so pleased!
Making arrangements for my dad to be cared for at Ivy Ridge went smoothly and I was treated very well in the process. We were impressed with the facilities beauty, cleanliness and organization upon admitting my dad. Their chef must be really good as my dad really enjoyed his meals from the start and the nurses kept in touch with me as to any issues. It was sad and unfortunate that my dads stay was very short, Ivy Ridge was more than fair in all that took place. I recommend Ivy Ridge for others that are in need of a memory care facility.
Inspired Living has far exceeded my family's expectations. The staff and caregivers provide exceptional care and monitor my Dad closely. I live in Atlanta and I have great communication with the staff regarding the well being of my father. My family visits and has dinner with my Dad in the dining area several times a week. The facility is state of the art, clean and well furnished. Inspire Living caregivers and staff provide a very caring, patient, safe and positive atmosphere which helps my family know that my Dad is in the best place in New Orleans.
Well it is a very special & loving place to work and is a place that you will enjoy inside and out. All the great staff that work here are very great people and every hardworking, taking care of moms & dads. Great job Inspired Living crew.
When my sister and I visited Inspired Living before we took my Mom to visit we were both surprised and excited to see a completely different type of place. When we took Mom, she loved it. We visited many other retirement communities both on the southshore and northshore but never found one that felt as good as Inspired Living Kenner. The staff was genuinely friendly and Mom spoke to many residents during our many visits and got very positive feedback from them. She made her decision after a great deal of research and she chose Inspired Living. Now she can't wait to move!
