About us at Preston House in Charlotte

About Ridge Care


Preston House is a member of the Ridge Care Senior Living family of senior living communities. Ridge Care has earned a reputation for keeping its promises to the more than 850 seniors who call its communities home. With its home office in Kernersville, Ridge Care operates 14 independent living, assisted living, and memory care communities in North Carolina and West Virginia.

Although it is a member of the Ridge Care family, decisions about the care of Preston House’s residents are made by the community’s executive director and resident care team — not someone in a corporate office several states away. Our capable community leaders know and love our residents and are far better positioned than anyone else to ensure that we’re delivering an exceptional resident care experience.
