Ridgefield Community Connections
We value the strong connections we have within Ridgefield, as well as with our neighboring communities of Danbury, Norwalk, Stamford, Weston, Newtown, Fairfield and beyond, and we desire to keep building new relationships! We believe that with our expertise in senior living comes a responsibility to share our knowledge widely and give back to the local communities that our residents hail from and love. This is one of the Right Values we live by.
Working Together to Support Ridgefield Seniors
We work closely with like-minded senior resources in the greater Ridgefield area and are happy to support and collaborate with these local senior centers, skilled nursing facilities and hospitals:
Building Dementia Friendly Communities
At Ridgefield Station, we are doing our part to help combat the stigma of dementia through public education programs, including our own interactive learning simulation, The Dementia Experience. We believe that programs like these will go a long way toward helping all of us to better respond, communicate, engage and support those around us living with dementia. We are currently working with the following groups and organizations to help build Dementia Friendly Communities:
Educational Opportunities for the General Public, Students and Professionals
We offer several CEU educational presentations for healthcare professionals and we are happy to come to your office to present them to a group large or small. Because we believe in the advancement of knowledge and education, we offer opportunities for student interns in the disciplines of art therapy, social work, gerontology and occupational therapy.
- We have, and will continue to offer, our Brain Healthy Cooking presentation at area Senior Centers, Council on Aging agencies and for eldercare organizations. Contact us if you want us to present at your building.
- We are passionate about our Dementia Friendly initiative which promoted education, communication techniques and sensitivity training to help combat the stigma of dementia and Alzheimer’s. Learn more about our FREE workshops, CEUs and “Train the Trainer” sessions so you can bring the Dementia Friendly movement to your organization or community.
- We welcome volunteers into our community – any age, any talent! Your time is greatly appreciated by our residents.
