It has taken a lot of the stress off my family because they don’t have to worry. It means security. I’ve experienced Independent Living and Monticello, and I’ve made friends in both!

Helen, Riddle Village Resident

The population of our elders are living longer, and families are not always able to care for their loved ones on their own. One of the benefits of living in Personal Care at Riddle Village is the 24-hour supervised setting that gives a structured environment. We provide emotional, physical, mental, spiritual, and social support. To sum it all up: we offer a loving, safe environment allowing our residents to live life to the fullest while providing assistance needed to maintain their dignity.
