It’s our mission at Riverwood Senior Living to provide the best assisted living communities for seniors that we possibly can. We don’t want to be a community that is just a place for people to come when they need help with their day to day living needs, we want to build a community, a place that is truly a home for all of our residents. For us, there is no greater honor than to have the trust of our residents and their families. We take great pride in providing high quality services to our residents and we believe that it is a privilege to be entrusted with caring for each and every person that calls Riverwood Senior Living home. In this month’s blog post, we wanted to talk about some of the components that we believe are central to our mission of providing the best assisted living care possible.

Compassionate care must be at the heart of any assisted living community that hopes to better the lives of their residents. Compassion is what takes this place from a building to a home. The people who work here at Riverwood Senior Living have a true calling to build meaningful relationships with our residents. Every member of our staff has been selected because they show a true commitment to making the lives of our residents as fulfilling as possible. From our culinary staff to our resident nurses, the staff here gives their all every day. This commitment to the overall wellbeing of our residents has gone a long way in making us the premier choice for assisted living in Rome.
When it comes to choosing the right assisted living community for yourself or for a loved one, it is important to consider the amenities that the community offers. Across the board, most senior living communities offer basic amenities such as furnished or unfurnished rooms, dietary plans, and nursing services, but we here at Riverwood Senior Living feel that offering even more perks to our residents is key in making sure that they are as happy and healthy as possible while under our care. To achieve this goal, some of our amenities include:
•Prompt, courteous maintenance staff
•24-hour emergency response system
•Paid utilities (except telephone)
•Transportation to appointments, events and errands
•Chef prepared meals
•Outdoor recreation areas
•Beauty and barber shop
•Smoke free building
•Daily social activities and events
•Assistance scheduling appointments
•Monitoring of general health and well being
We go the extra mile to make sure each resident’s experience at Riverwood is as fulfilling as possible. No one should feel like they don’t have what they need in their own home, and at Riverwood Senior Living, we strive to build a home for all who live here.
What really makes this place special is the community created here, and the residents who call Riverwood Senior Living home. With residents from all walks of life and a multitude of unique backgrounds, knowledge, and skills, we feel that this place is unique. When you choose Riverwood Senior Living for yourself or for a loved one, you are choosing an active and engaging community with plenty of people ready to welcome new residents with open arms. Being able to offer an inviting community goes a long way in helping new residents adapt to their new surroundings and engage socially with their fellow neighbors.
Here at Riverwood, we put a lot of effort into making sure that multiple outings are planned each week, allowing our residents to get out into the community. Whether it is a trip to the Strawberry Farm, a picnic on the grounds, or a shopping trip at the local supermarket, all of our residents are encouraged to participate in the activities that have been planned by Riverwood Senior Living staff. We take a lot of time to make sure that activities are planned well in advance so residents have time to sign up and, more importantly, we do our best to make sure that our activities are varied and interest specific. We highly encourage our residents to suggest outings that they would like to see happen and to give us feedback on past outings so that we can continually improve our activities calendar.
At Riverwood Senior Living, we make it our mission to provide exceptional memory care services to those residents who will benefit from it. Our Pathways program provides addition assistance to those residents with Alzheimer’s and other memory-related illnesses by creating a care plan that is specific to each individual within the program. We work to provide your loved one with an environment in which they will feel comfortable and thrive, increasing their activity and engagement with the community that surrounds them. We intentionally seek out opportunities to get to know our residents on a personal level, making meaningful connections and better understanding what makes them who they are. We learn their favorite things, get to know their family, and use personal items or mementos of the past to decorate their entryways and living space. Our community evokes a feeling of home, safety, cleanliness, and comfort. Consistency, kindness, and reassurance is what you and your loved one can expect and rely upon under our care.
In-house entertainment is so important! As such, we plan multiple indoor activities every week to give residents a chance to have some fun, socialize, and see some excellent entertainment. Whether it is a crafting session or magic show, a movie night or a live musical guest, our staff works to make sure that entertainment and gatherings are never in short supply at Riverwood Senior Living. As with all of our activities, we encourage our residents to provide feedback and let us know of any activities that they are interested in making happen.
We truly believe that our dedication to our residents and the efforts we take to provide them with the best community possible makes us stand out as the premier leader in assisted living.
