Moving In

Christmas Tea Employee And Resident

Step One

Complete and submit an Admission Application to:
The Ridgewood at Shenango Valley
One Elston Way
Hermitage, PA 16148


Step Two

Review by the Admissions Committee. Upon approval of the application, your name will be placed on the waiting list. It will remain on the list until you are called to move or you request removal of your name.


Step Three

When an apartment is available, you will be notified. You can reserve and hold your apartment with a $500 non-refundable security deposit for 30 days. Apartments are available on a first-come, first-served basis. An additional $1,000.00 deposit is required if you plan to bring your pet.     

At this time you will have 30 days to move into the apartment. If you accept the apartment, you must complete the application process as listed.


Step Four

Once you are called to move, we will send a Medical Evaluation form. Your physician must complete this form for you. This is a standard form, which must be filled out for each resident. According to state law, it must be completed and signed by a physician within 60 days prior to admission or within 30 days after admission.


Step Five

Schedule an appointment for an initial move-in meeting with a marketing representative or the administrator of The Ridgewood at (724) 347-0998. During your initial meeting you will schedule your Move-in Date, complete a preliminary needs assessment and review preliminary paperwork for your move. The state requires The Ridgewood to complete a standardized screening instrument within 30 days prior to admission to The Ridgewood. This assessment reviews the resident’s medical, social and personal care needs to allow us to provide services appropriate for each resident.


Step Six

Schedule a second appointment to meet with the administrator or a designated person to complete admission papers.


Step Seven

Begin moving in.
