About Deaconess Abundant Life Communities

Our Philosophy

     Rockridge Retirement Community warmly welcomes residents to their new home,  and is dedicated to creating a community which offers comfort, security, and a lifestyle of choices and options.
     Making a move can often be mixed with varied emotions.  We recognize that it can be a challenge to leave a long-time home.  Most residents, however, tell us that they wish they had moved here sooner.  
     We realize that adjustment to a new environment takes time.  We are happy that folks choose to live at Rockridge Retirement Community and are eager to assist in any way we can to make the transition as smooth as possible. 
     All staff doors are always open.  We feel that staff, residents and their families make up the greater supportive family which is Rockridge and we look forward to sharing life.
