OLNEY, IL - Lavender Ridge has been providing dementia and Alzheimer's residential care in central Illinois since 2009. Today they announced they are slated to open their fourth location in Olney, IL in Spring 2017.

 Lavender Ridge is hosting an educational seminar, “Caring for Loved Ones with Dementia and Alzheimer’s” at this soon to be new location, 1304 North East St., on Thursday, March 16th, from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m.  

 Keesha Wood-Smith, Director of Operations and Partner says, “In every community where we are located, we see our role as being a trusted resource for individuals and their loved ones needing memory care. We help identify options and determine what works best for them. I look forward to sharing my knowledge at our upcoming event."

 Wood-Smith adds, “We will also be offering free screening for anyone who is concerned about dementia and Alzheimer’s. Additionally, attendees will also get an exclusive preview tour of the new building, designed specifically for memory care.”

 Sandy Michels, General Manager and Partner at Lavender Ridge’s main office says, “We have built our business upon exemplary service. We are regularly nominated for ‘The Best of the Best’ and the ‘People’s Choice’ awards across the markets we serve.”

 Michels says, “As we enter new markets where we are not yet known, such as Olney, we realized we needed a brand refresh that accurately represents the high quality of care we provide. So today we are proud to also announce the launch of our new website that does just that."


 Lavender Ridge is privately owned and owner-managed serving the markets of Mt. Vernon, Effingham, Jacksonville and Olney, IL. Lavender Ridge is focused on memory care only. Their residential care uniquely offers private suites with their Complete Care approach–all services and amenities are included in one flat rate that does not vary based upon the level of care a resident requires throughout their stay.
