Retirement Community

Chateau on the Ridge is Northeast Arkansas’ newest comprehensive retirement community. Our beautiful 53-acre community is perched on a rolling hillside in Paragould, Arkansas.

Chateau on the Ridge is an Arkansas Methodist Medical Center Continuing Care Retirement Community. In August of 2007, the board of directors for The Foundation at Arkansas Methodist Medical Center, along with the medical center’s management and staff, determined that Northeast Arkansas was in need of a top-quality retirement community for its aging citizens.  

In July of 2008, a corporation was formed, led by a Retirement Community Board of Directors which is comprised of community leaders, and planning began in earnest. Members of the board visited locations across the United States in order to identify industry best practices and to ensure that Chateau on the Ridge would be among the nation’s finest retirement communities. The board also oversaw the selection and purchase of 53 rolling, wooded acres off Carroll Road in Paragould, Arkansas. A groundbreaking ceremony on August 27, 2010 signaled the official start to construction.

On November 15, 2011, Chateau on the Ridge officially welcomed its first residents with the grand opening of the Assisted Living Center. In the coming years, Chateau on the Ridge will continue to expand to include building lots for individual homes, an independent living community, a community center, a rehab center, a Memory Center (for Alzheimer’s care) and a nursing center.
