Parkinson's - The Ridge ECU

If you or someone you know has Parkinson’s disease, you know that living alone can be a real challenge. We understand that movement disorders can make simple daily tasks, like unlocking a door or maneuvering around the house a frustrating experience. That’s why we purposefully designed apartments with specialized features to help those with Parkinson’s disease during their short-term stay. Our staff also receives specialized training on movement disorders and, with a higher caregiver to resident staffing ratio, we are able to provide the comprehensive assistance and support for Parkinson’s sufferers that’s unparalleled in the Vancouver area.

If healthcare needs change and residents require a higher level of personal attention, The Ridge offers peace of mind and fulfilling lifestyle.

The Ridge provides a small setting of 29 apartments with an intimate dining and living room. This community features a higher staff-to-resident ratio and a focus on those with movement disorders such as Parkinson ’s disease to deliver the unique care outlined in each resident’s personalized supported plan.
