Mom's only ughter July 20, 2016

My mother has been a resident in the assisted living side of this home for about 2 years. She recently had a fall, and I was notified within 30 minutes! They took her to the ER via Ambulance, and I got calls from Riverview, the EMTs during transport and then from the hospital. She is back now in the rehab side of the home, and is being treated carefully and kindly. The nursing staff is excellent, they all seem to love their work and their clients. I have gotten all concerns addressed ASAP. The location is wonderful, right on the banks of the Delaware River. I live in another state (Mom's choice not to move out of her area, where she has lived since 1955) and there are 4 basic but clean and quiet guest rooms, for only $30.00 a night. This makes my visits with mom less stressful for me, and I'm able to participate in all her activities and dine with her (for a very small fee). I would highly recommend Riverview Estates.

My parents chose Riverview Estates because it had all of the things that they needed and wanted. If my dad needs to be in a memory care unit, they have that. My parents have a double room because there are two of them. It has a bed area, there is another area of the room for comfortable chairs and a TV, and you are able to fit quite a bit of furniture. They have a living room on every floor. When we visited, we looked at the room, and then we went to the living room to hang out for a while, and it was very pretty.
It’s not a fancy place. It’s in a historic area, and the building is historic. It’s on a river front, so they have a beautiful view of the river. It’s decorated all throughout in antiques. They have pretty lamps and pretty rugs.
My parents knew that the people who worked there were very nice, kind, and caring people. They do anything that they want or need. Really good attitude with the workers. The most valuable thing that we’re finding is the care that they receive. My dad has dementia. They were keeping an eye on my dad because he wasn’t doing well. They have a doctor who comes in every Wednesday. They go and see the doctor if they need to. The doctor found that he had atrial fibrillation on top of the dementia, and that was causing him dizziness. They solved that problem with medication. He’s getting better medical care there than he was before he went in.
They love the food; they give them choices. It’s like going through a restaurant 3 times a day. They serve them their big meal in the middle of the day, and then they serve somewhat smaller meals, sandwich, soup-type thing in the evening and then breakfast. They have cards and bingo, and they do have trips. They take them to Wal-Mart and the Dollar Store once a week. They go to a restaurant once a month.
From Riverview Estates
Riverview Estates is a faith-based community serving a diverse aging population and their families by providing a continuum of care with respect, acceptance, dignity and joy.
Unlike a traditional nursing home, Riverton Estates is for those who need a certain level of help and supervised care, but they are generally able to move about freely without supervision, and have no other healthcare or mental conditions to constrain them.
What Makes Us Special
Riverview Estates is in the town of Riverton, New Jersey, along the banks of the Delaware River. The town was founded in 1851, and its Victorian charms can still be seen in the homes that line the town's streets. The Delaware River is an ever changing backdrop that reflects the seasons. The Riverton Yacht Club is just down the street, and sailboats glide by almost every day.
