The facility is beautiful and well kept. The staff are friendly and seem to genuinely care about the residents and their family. This is a great facility!
Thank you for your kind words. We do have an outstanding staff and we truly love residents. We strive to hire only the best most qualified individual of high moral character that will carry on the traditions that our founder began in 1906. Just this weekend one of our caretakers came and picked up one of the residents and treated him to breakfast...on her birthday. One of our residents that does not have local family celebrates holidays with another employee and her family. No one gets left out or feels forgotten at the Rathbone. I am so very proud to be a part of this team that is truly one-of-a-kind.

This is a home with a touch of elegance and that feeling of warmth when you have come back home. No institutional meals here. A lot of work goes into these meals and the people who work here are one in a million. Truly caring individuals. Wish I had known about this beautiful mansion when Mom was alive, she would have loved it.

Simply, this is a wonderful place for my parents to live. They are at the perfect age to enjoy the social aspects but have the security knowing someone is always there for them. The loving staff anticipates our needs and I can't thank them enough. This operation is top notch! Here is our experience:
Food: My parents have three meals a day with two servings at lunch. The dining room is smaller than others I have seen but you can't beat the character of eating in one of Evansville's most beautiful historical properties. The food tasted home-cooked and when I visit, I've never had the same meal twice. They have a good variety and I've only heard praises about the food from my parents!
Care: As I stated above, the staff that cares for my parents are constantly trying to find new ways to help out. Whether it's a quick laugh or stopping in for a story, they have made us feel right at home.
Price: Without stating numbers I can say I was pleasantly surprised when we got down to it. Everything was straight forward and easy to understand. After researching all of the places in Evansville I found their prices to be about the middle of the pack, maybe a little below.
Overall I happily give a 5-star review. Love is very apparent and they know what they are doing. I feel secure knowing mom and dad are living at Rathbone Retirement Community. Hope this helps!

I visited this facility
I went to see The Rathbone Home, and I would never go there. It is an old mansion, and it has been made into a nursing home. I wasn’t impressed at all when the patients went to eat as I did not see a dining room. They just sat here and there. They have beautiful furniture, but it’s worn down. They do have activities, and they take a bus and take patients around to different places.

I am/was a resident of this facility
The staff of Rathbone Home is great. The apartment has a bedroom, a living room, a kitchen, and a bathroom. It is an independent living, but I get aides and assistance. They serve meals, but I can fix my own if I want to. They have activities like bingo, movies, prayer services, exercise periods, and they take us to Walmart a couple of times a month. They also have a pool table. I have three cats which they allow me to keep. I like everything about it so far.

My half-sister is a resident of The Rathbone Home. We chose this facility mainly because of its location. We also like this facility for her. Aside from independent living, they also have assisted living. Everything that she needs is right there. They have a salon so she doesn't have to leave the facility to have her hair cut. I still take her for doctor's appointments but they do furnish transportation for those type of things with an extra charge. They have a patio and a courtyard and she likes them both. She has a nice-sized apartment with a garden view out her window. She is also able to take her cat with her there. The people working there are very nice people. They're friendly and helpful. They check on their residents a lot. They also try to get their residents participate in their activities. On the assisted living side, they also do the medications. We went there for lunch and the food was very good. Overall, we like this facility for the friendliness of the people and the location.
