Independent senior living at Riverwood means you are steering the ship. When you live here at our community, you can rest assured our staff works diligently to foster an environment that ensures your golden years are just that– golden.
We’ve rounded up our top ten why independent living at Riverwood is the absolute best choice for seniors. Those reasons are listed below.
1.) A home that’s all yours
It’s so important to have your own space– a place where you can retreat that’s all yours. At our assisted living communities, you can enjoy independent senior living at its finest with the best amenities and services available if or when you need them, while maintaining a living space that is for you and you only.
2.) You’ll have your bestie next door!
One of the best aspects of independent senior living at Riverwood is the sense of community created by our lovely residents and staff members. You’ll love spending your time chatting with everyone, building friendships and sharing meals, as well as games and community outings with good friends nearby.
3.) Pet-friendly accommodations
Enjoy the companionship that comes with having a pet! Our communities allow residents to keep up to two pets in their apartments. That means you could have a dog, cat, bird, or other pet to keep you company, and brighten your days with that special love only an animal companion can bring.
4.) On-site church services
Our Christian-affiliated community provides all sorts of resources for worship and bible study. We also have on-site church services to make it easy for our residents to fellowship with one another, and we’re always creating fun and new ways for residents and community members to come together in the name of the Lord.
5.) Medical staff nearby, should you need them
It’s a great perk for seniors who reside in independent living to have quick and easy access to assistance or healthcare if they need it, but can also continue living as independently as suits them. It’s always a relief, especially to families of residents, to know that help is nearby just in case.
6.) Activities & game nights on site
Rest assured that here at Riverwood, you can BINGO your heart out! Our staff works diligently to ensure there’s always something fun to do and look forward to. With games nights, musical performance, and activities galore, you’ll always have something to get into!
7.) Wonderful chef-prepared meals
Julia Child said “people who love to eat are always the best people,” and we couldn’t agree more. Food is so important! We know that the chef-prepared meals we provide at Riverwood need to be not only nutritious, but delicious! Whether you have a sense of adventure in your dining habits, or prefer the tried and true Southern classics, our menus ensure there is something for everyone – and we’re always open to requests!
8.) Scheduled outings, locally and regionally
Our staff ensures there’s always a jam-packed calendar of events for you to enjoy. Spend time with your friends, see the sights, and get some fresh air with our planned outings to local or regional attractions.
9.) Performances & community events
From educational classes, how-to events, crafts, and musical performances, there’s always something interesting going on here. We like to keep things fresh and fun, and we know our residents appreciate breaking up their days with activities that keep the mind and body engaged.
10.) Enjoying Elvis!
Over the years, we’ve developed a close friendship with the King of Rock-and-Roll himself, and we love to host him for visits and performances as much as he can manage! Our residents love hearing the old classics, and reminiscing with all their friends. It’s a great morale booster, and a fun time is always had.
From fun events and friendship to delicious food or medical assistance when necessary, we hope we’ve offered you a few great reasons to consider making Riverwood your home! Live the life you want, independence intact, and let our incredible staff make sure you have everything you need in the process! Independent senior living never felt so wonderful.
