Ridge Crest offers children and young adults who are medically fragile or technology-dependent a unique home-life environment that includes, not just 24-hour nursing supervision, but also a structured daily routine, education, after-school activities, special programs and outings. Because every child or young adult deserves a life that lets them learn, grow and achieve, our 24-hour open-door policy, welcomes parents and family 24/7 and encourages them to participate in their child’s activities.
For some children and young adults with severe to profound intellectual developmental disabilities, staying home with 24-hour nursing care can become more difficult as they age. In addition, being part of the Ridge Crest family helps them develop socially and emotionally. Our exceptional staff includes nurses skilled in caring for technology-dependent children, a social worker, and a child life specialist. They consult with a dietician, physical therapist, speech therapist, and occupational therapist as needed.
Transitional care is available for children and young adults who plan on being cared for in the family home, but require support to make that possible. Our highly trained staff provide the education and support to help families learn the skills they’ll need when their loved one returns from the medical setting.
Respite services are provided for children and young adults between the ages of six months and 21 years, and range in length from a few days to several weeks. Individuals bring all of their personal items, equipment and medications, and our staff provide a fun, homelike environment for their “vacation”.
