Or fetch some play time with your best friend in our fenced dog park. Practice your golf swing on our putting greens, or invite your family to a fun outing by our swimming pool with tiki bar. Sip a cup of coffee in our bistro while chatting with new friends or enjoy a fresh, chef-prepared meal in our elegant dining room.

We are passionate about our personalized approach to care, which is designed around your individual needs and preferences. Should a health issue arise, assisted living and memory care services are available, all within an enriching, homelike environment. Whether you are active and independent or need some assistance, the inspiring choices at Inspired Living at Lakewood Ranch are all 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 Daniel J. Ritter

Daniel-Ritter-Opt

Why did you get into senior living?

I think I am drawn to the healthcare industry because I have a genuine desire to serve. I started in nursing, switched gears to physical therapy, and then learned the long term care industry. Serving our seniors is a privilege!

Who inspires you?

My Mom, Dad, and God! And of course my little boy Maximus is everything to me!

What would people be surprised to know about you?

Growing up I wanted to be in the FBI or be in the Mafia, go figure! You see how that worked out!

Beatles or Elvis?

Michael Jackson!

How did you wind up at Inspired Living?

I saw something that I wanted to be a part of and I pursued it. I went for the job and I got it. Don’t be afraid to pursue your dreams!

What do you want your legacy to be?

At the end of the day I just want to be known as a guy who helped a few Moms and Dads. I strive to take care of each and every resident as if it were my own mother or father.

Nora Manning – Lakewood Ranch

My experience with Inspired Living at Lakewood Ranch has been extremely positive. The staff is excellent. The manner in which they relate to the residents is very supportive, compassionate and gives each resident dignity as an individual. I have been overwhelmed by their efforts on the resident’s behalf. When I visit Lakewood, I am very happy because of the kindness and congenial atmosphere created by the staff. I leave in a good mood, knowing that my friend who is a resident, is content and enjoying his residency.

This positive experience has been reinforced by all the staff: admissions office, Health and Wellfare, receptionists, nurses, kitchen, activities programmers, maintenance. Every effort is made on behalf of the residents. I am very impressed with the activities that are provided to the residents. The community rooms, grounds, residents rooms are lovely and comfortable.

I highly recommend Inspired Living at Lakewood Ranch. I am pleased that I have had an opportunity to visit and witness this exceptionally fine place.
