Owned and operated by Orange City Area Health System, Landsmeer Ridge is dedicated to assisting and supporting tenants in maintaining an active, independent and healthy lifestyle. Hallways have handrails on both sides; carpets do not have padding beneath them to promote better safety for those whose gait has become unstable or who shuffle; each apartment has two urgency call stations; regular professional toe-trimming service and annual flu shots are scheduled on-site; awake staff is on duty 24 hours a day; and the manager is an RN who is able to answer questions and provide guidance regarding health concerns.
Should a tenant need to move to a different level of living assistance, Landsmeer Ridge tenants have priority admission at our Prairie Ridge Care Center next door, an 89 bed Skilled Nursing facility which includes an 11 bed memory care cottage.
The Main Street at Landsmeer Ridge
Upon entering the main door of Landsmeer Ridge Retirement Community you will find yourself in the Fireside Room, a large living room used for educational presentations; musical programs; wine and cheese affairs; and just general visiting.
The Treat Shoppe is a popular place for tenants and their guests to stop for an ice cream cone, popcorn, cup of cappuccino, coffee or a cold drink. The Orange City Public Library comes monthly to change out the books in our own library and tenants are often found there reading, using the computers or working on jig saw puzzles. Those who enjoy playing pool can rack up in the billiards room and those who are feeling a bit shaggy can make an appointment with the hairdresser for anything from a haircut to a “wash and set” to a permanent in the salon.* Guests of our tenants appreciate having our on-site guest room available for their visits to their loved ones.* The private dining room, which seats 10 comfortably, is centrally located for ease of access by tenants of either the Independent or Assisted areas of the building and can be reserved for entertaining a served meal for guests.
Administration offices are easily accessed by tenants and visitors for needs ranging from assistance in engaging the services of the local RIDES van; questions regarding local events; registering an apartment repair need; etc.
* Available on a fee-for service basis
