Our Culture

Culture Changes at Ridgecrest Community Care Center. 
It’s about the journey.

Welcome home! Home is a place where you feel comfortable, have comfortable furnishings, and are surrounded by familiar people. Here at Ridgecrest, we are on a culture change journey to make it a home. Our team is eager to help our residents feel right at home. At Ridgecrest, our residents are the boss. Our residents can decide if they want to get up with the roosters or stay in bed until the sun comes up. Bath and activities schedules are based on the resident’s preferences. Although meals are prepared in accordance with the residents’ needs, home-cooking is the order of the day.



“Within our households, I constantly hear terms like ‘outrageous,’ ‘passion,’ ‘energy,’ ‘spirit,’ ‘attitude,’ and other exciting descriptions characterizing how our household teams celebrate our adaptation to culture change in our facility. But the most repeated word of all is ‘fun.’… Who would have ever believed?”

Brian Martin,
Market Manager



“We are on a journey committed to culture change, and we are making great strides in that direction. Everyone – staff and residents alike – is on board, working diligently to create a more home-like environment to live and work in.”

Mary Courtney,
Assessment Nurse,
Natchitoches Community Care Center


Consistent staffing assignments mean residents are surrounded by the same caregivers on a daily basis. Consistent staffing provides the opportunity for residents and caregivers to really get to know one another.

Transitions take time and are a journey. Our journey at Ridgecrest has just begun. Many new and exciting things will be coming in the future. Be on the look-out for the new Café that will be opening soon. It will feature a hydration station, along with other fabulous items!

We welcome you to stop by our home for a cup of coffee or tea and a visit.
