About our Community

Located in northwest St. Petersburg, Inspired Living at Ivy Ridge provides personalized care with assisted living services specifically designed for those with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia or other memory impairments. Residents are truly at the center of their care, forming the foundation for a unique approach tailored to meet individual needs and preferences.

Our community is the perfect balance of form and function – a warm, welcoming place that feels like home, is alive with activity, and is carefully designed to enhance the lives of those with memory impairments. But it is our people who make a tremendous difference. The passion of our dedicated staff is driven by a sense of purpose and deep respect for our residents, their families and loved ones.

From our expansive, secure courtyard with walking paths, a shaded gazebo and butterfly garden – to nutritious, chef-prepared dining options where residents can enjoy delicious meals and snacks at their leisure – we provide a worry-free, nurturing and compassionate environment. Discover the difference we can make in your loved one’s life … and in yours.

It’s important for seniors to feel safe and secure at home. Our specially designed assisted living and memory care floor plans increase mobility and reduce falls in a comfy home-like apartment. In each style, you will find a spacious and specially designed bathroom with roll-in showers and rails.

Our purpose built floor plans promote safety, empowerment, and comfort. Our models feature open concepts with the “just right” amount of space. Rightsizing is on “trend” these days but did you know that there are lots of important benefits for seniors? Reducing the amount of ‘stuff’ you own simplifies your life, reduces stress, and minimizes clutter which reduces risk of a fall. Your entire apartment is uniquely yours. How will you decorate and furnish?

Meet Our Director Lauren Phillips

Inspired Living at Ivy Ridge Executive Director Lauren Phillips

Why did you get into senior living?

I have always been very passionate about the elderly. Ten years ago my grandmother was diagnosed with dementia and our family has been taking care of her in our home. While I was in college I would come home on the weekends and help care for her. My grandfather has recently been diagnosed with dementia and I am very involved in his care as well. This has lead me to have a caring and loving heart for the residents that I am with everyday in the community.

Who truly inspires you?

God is my inspiration to show His caring heart and love for others through me.

What is something people would be surprised to know about you?

I am terrified of heights and also I am a huge Alabama fan! Roll Tide!

Beatles or Elvis?

More of a Chris Stapleton kind of girl!

How did you wind up at Inspired Living?

Through family and prayer God has lead me to this great company!

What do you want your legacy to be?

That I have made a difference in the lives of the people that I come in contact with everyday.

Erin Greene – Ivy Ridge

Ivy Ridge is 1 of the nicest memory care places in the area. It is a very clean building with lots of activities going on. The staff there do a great job of taking care of seniors. I have no doubt that the people who live there are taken care of and treated as they should be. As I look on Facebook and when I’m there I see so much fun happening with smiling faces all over the place. Overall very happy with Ivy Ridge and Validus.
