The Joint Commission

Assisted Living

The first phase of Chateau on the Ridge, an assisted living center, opened in October of 2011. Chateau on the Ridge is slated to become a continuing care retirement community and is envisioned to transform the landscape of Paragould and the surrounding area’s retirement options.

The assisted living center includes 59-units, eight two-bedroom and 51 one-bedroom apartments. It is located on 10 acres of the nearly 53 acres off Carroll Road.

Residents can choose from four different models of one and two bedroom cozy apartments that offer the latest amenities plus the comforts of home. Many of the apartments include a sought after view overlooking elegantly landscaped courtyards. In addition, a furnished guest suite is available to accommodate residents’ family and friends who are visiting from out of town.

Chateau on the Ridge offers an unmatched lifestyle to take care of unwanted tasks, so that residents’ time is spent as they wish. A full calendar of social events and activities is offered at Chateau on the Ridge, in addition to the security and comfort of a highly caring, trained staff. A chapel, general store and barber/beauty salon is located within the assisted living complex. Home health, along with medication management, is also available, as well as an on-site physical therapy and wellness center to provide a higher level of healthy living for today’s active senior. Staff are also able to assist with a wide range of residents’ daily personal needs. Housekeeping, laundry services and transportation are also available. 


“We combined the best features, the most wanted things and gathered advice from those who knew more about it than we did,” said Bill Block. “As things appeared several years ago it was quite evident that Paragould needed an assisted living facility. It was an entirely new subject and took a committee visiting 12-15 assisted living facilities and almost two years of study but it is now, thank goodness, coming to fruition.”

Chateau on the Ridge, only 1 ¼ miles from Arkansas Methodist Medical Center, is located on the site of a former dairy farm tracing back to the World War II era.

Plans call for the approximately 52 acre site of the retirement community to be developed into a continuing care retirement community to take care of residents’ needs ranging from independent living to many different specialized care options, which may be required throughout life.  

Retirement Community Board Members Tom Blossom, Bill Fisher, Moud Gazaway, Barbara Hamilton, Carolyn Samuel and Fred Swindle along with the late Alvin Samuel and BIll Block have worked tirelessly on this major endeavor with the goal of offering an attractive, affordable place to live. Despite its uptown appearance, numerous amenities and services, Chateau on the Ridge will offer one of the best values in retirement living through only payment of a monthly fee.
