Learn More about Cherry Ridge
Over the last 30 years, Cherry Ridge Skilled Nursing Facility has been a family owned and operated facility. Cherry Ridge is a short term and long term care facility located in Bastrop, Louisiana, that accepts Medicare, Medicaid, Humana, Vantage, and other private insurances. We are committed to providing a family-like environment where we encourage our residents to live their life to the fullest as we would our own parents and grandparents.
Cherry Ridge is staffed 24 hours a day/7 days a week by licensed nurses and certified nurses’ aides, overseen by registered nurses every day. Our highly qualified nursing staff implements individualized care plans for each patient that may include IV and medication administration, wound care, symptom management, and respiratory care. We also provide daily assistance with dressing, bathing, meals, and other day to day activities. Many of our staff members have been with us for many years and take great pride in their work. Their love for this facility and its residents is shown daily in the way they care for each other and their patients.
Creating a homelike, personal space that allows comfort and self-expression is important. We encourage residents and families to bring familiar items such as special blankets or pillows, framed family photographs, a favorite recliner, and other pieces to personalize their room. If there are questions about what is appropriate, our staff is available to answer questions.
We invite families and friends to visit as often as possible. In addition to in-room visits, we offer common areas, private group rooms, and a comfortable front porch for days when the weather permits enjoying the outdoors. When in-person visits are not appropriate, virtual visits are available by coordinating with staff – we are available to assist as needed.
We encourage outside visits and feel that the engagement helps maintain physical, emotional, and social wellbeing. Residents are able to accompany loved ones and friends on outings and enjoy shopping, eating at favorite restaurants, attending church services, staying overnight at home, and other activities that are an important component to their quality of life. Our residents are asked to sign out when leaving and sign in upon return to the facility. Ask our staff for more information – we are happy to discuss the number of annual leave days available for overnight stays.
"We see each day as an opportunity to change someone’s life… At Cherry Ridge there is an entire team to guide, encourage, and provide care to those in need, in hopes of achieving their best potential. "
– Kathy Bowers, Cherry Ridge Facility Administrator
