Representative Bob Bischoff was in attendance at the event and
said after 32 years of serving the public in the political realm
it never gets old to see new life. He said, This is another
project that will boost the economic outlook for Ripley County
- its about jobs. He noted that the project gave construction
workers jobs and will see new employees hired who will in turn
pay income and sales taxes.
Allen Goodman, vice-president of the board of directors for Ripley
Crossing, noted that the facility was more than a business...its
someplace to put our family. He noted that he has family
members at the facility and thats how they treat everyone
there, as family.

32 independent living senior apartments, a full-care nursing facility,
staged dementia care unit, and state of the art rehabilitation
wing. The new units will provide assisted living quarters for
new residents. Monica Ogden, administrator at Ripley Crossing,
explained this new area will allow people to live as independently
as possible with the exception of some level of care.
Ripley Crossing has provided innovative care for those afflicted
with Alzheimers and other dementia related illnesses for
more than 15 years.
It now offers short-term inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation
with the goal of helping patients to live independently again
and return to their homes.
