Located in Austin, TX, RidgeOak is a person-centered long-term living community for adults living with mental illness. RidgeOak provides residents with a structured, safe place to live, grow, pursue their own interests and develop a stable lifestyle through person-centered support.
Person-centered support calls for including the resident in decision making at all levels. The core principles of person-centered support include:
- Empowerment for each person
- Providing the person with maximum choice
- Emphasizing respect in all interactions
- Promoting positive and meaningful relationships
- Embracing a community of unique individuals who all have a sense of belonging and purpose
A major component of person-centered care is choice. Our residents may choose to participate in numerous activities that interest them personally, such as volunteering in the community, becoming involved with a church community, or joining the local activity center. Recreational outings are also a regular part of life, including bowling, going to a movie or coffee shop or dining at restaurants.
We are a very unique long- term care community that focuses on the individual’s personal needs and interests, not just on the diagnosis or treatment regime. At its heart, RidgeOak promotes dignity, self-worth, relationships, stability and a quality of life.
