"I have lived at WestRidge since February 2020.  When my husband of 62 years passed away to be with the Lord, I made the decision to move out of our home. 2 of our 6 children live in the cities, so the decision was made for them to help find me a comfortable place to live. Fortunately, they came to WestRidge of Minnetonka and they were immediately impressed with the facility and the staff.   To put it simply, WestRidge is a wonderful place to call home."
