Getting its name from being located on a ridge off USH 151 in Chilton, Century Ridge strives to provide a family atmosphere as it cares for its residents.

Century Ridge is a licensed elder care facility in Chilton that strives to provide a close family atmosphere for its residents.

Offering housing for older individuals who need assistance with daily living since 1997, the facility focuses on independence and quality of life for each resident. Numerous daily activities and outings coordinated by an onsite activity coordinator help to make Century Ridge home for up to 60 residents. Monthly entertainment including music, exercise groups, games, religious services and socials help fill the residents days with fun and social interaction.

With three buildings located on East Calumet Street that can each house up to 20 residents, the 24 hour staff includes licensed nurses and nursing assistants to cater to residents needs. Each bedroom offers a half bath and each building includes a spacious front room, living room, kitchen, beauty parlor and outdoor sitting areas for residents to enjoy. All bedrooms are private and furnished with a bed, dresser and night stand.

Trained staff assists residents with daily living skills and provide laundry and housekeeping services. Three homemade meals are prepared daily supervised by the Century Ridge dietary department. Alarmed door systems help give families peace of mind knowing their loved ones are safe.

Marj Hardrath, Donna Kloehn and Kim Schnell are members of the Century Ridge administrative staff. “We offer a close family atmosphere,” Hardrath said. “Being able to assist the residents and keep them independent is a rewarding part of our jobs as is the joy the residents bring to our lives.”

The administrative team feels the home environment provided makes Century Ridge a special place to live. “Our activities are our goal to keep residents motivated and stimulated,” Kloehn said. “Century Ridge is also known for our home cooked meals and hospitality.”

“We reach out to meet our resident’s spiritual needs,” she continued. “Century Ridge is a family run facility with great focus on resident care and well being. We treat our residents like family and we like to make our home your home.”

Hardrath said the staff at Century Ridge is team oriented and work well together to provide a meaningful atmosphere for the elderly. “Our staff is highly trained and treats your family members like their own. At Century Ridge, we believe your family members deserve the best.”

Schnell invites those graduating high school or college to check out Century Ridge. “If you are looking for a new career, please contact us,” she said.
