Cedar Ridge Elder Services is a locally owned Community Based Residential Facility (CBRF) first established in the Wausau area in 1996. The business started with one building and currently includes 3 in Weston and one in Mosinee. We are licensed by the state in all 4 buildings.
Since it’s conception, the business includes 3 separate owners with current owners, Paula and Marty Robazek, purchasing the business June 1, 2006. Our staff does include 2 nurses and a software engineer.
All of our buildings are designed in a circular fashion with resident rooms being around the outside perimeter and the kitchen, restrooms and laundry facilities in the center. Buildings 1 and 2 in Weston share a beautiful courtyard that is heavily used in warm weather. The other 2 each have their own courtyard. All buildings are air-conditioned with phone and TV connection in all rooms. There are also TVs in the common areas. Each building contains a small aviary and aquarium.
All houses contain a resident monitoring system that will signal wanderers leaving the building. In addition, buildings 1 and 2 have a keyed main entry for the safety of the residents.
Currently we employ approximately 50 employees with 7 to 12 people actively working depending upon the shift. The number of residents may vary with 50 being at capacity.
Paula is a LPN and has worked in assisted living for over 25 years. Marty worked in IT at Liberty Mutual for 29 years. Paula is a certified trainer and does most of the training for the Cedar Ridge staff and some other local workers.
Cedar Ridge prides itself in the ability to handle a wide variety of behaviors including alzheimers and dementia. We also maintain a lower than average staff turnover!
