I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident
My mother is in Kirkwood by the River. I think it is a perfect fit for her needs. She has a one bedroom unit which gives her a bedroom, a walk-in closet, and also a living area with a little kitchenette as well. She likes the space where she can put all her knick-knacks and stuff. They have a very aggressive program of activities. It seems like they have something constantly from 9 o'clock in the morning to 4 to 5 o'clock in the afternoon. Sometimes, they have something after supper including movies. She likes the worship service and the bible study. They do have a pool. They have a nurse available 24/7, and they have somebody who checks every door by 9 o'clock each morning to make sure that each resident is up and OK. They have outings to the groceries or to eat. They take people to their doctors and bring them back. The staff is just incredibly caring. They seem to be very sincere. They are great people.

I am/was a resident of this facility
Kirkwood By The River is a very nice facility. I'm very happy. The people are very nice. The food was OK and not as good as I expected, but it's OK. I had an apartment when I first moved in but I had a stroke last August, so I had to move to a semi-private room for a couple of months. It's fine. There are lots of activities and amenities. Today there was a social hour. They used to take us shopping.

I visited this facility
The facility was pleasantly decorated and had an ambience about it. All of the residents that I saw appeared to be engaged with each other and staff. The staff paid extra attention to the residents. There were many activities available, as well as planned outings and events at the facility itself. When mealtime came, the food appeared appetizing, the residents were eating it eagerly and those that needed some assistance received it. All in all this was a great facility. My only regret is that my grandmother didn't pass an entrance assessment. Her Alzheimer's is too advanced for them to take her on. I understand this is for her own safety, so no hard feelings there. It was a wonderful facility though.
