The Villa at riverwood use to be the nicest, cheapest and welcoming staff. I have seen in the last 2 years a huge change in staff and community outings. I was said to see the amazing Activity directory of 18 years retire she was so passionate about her job and care for the residents. The educative director if you can call her that is rude and disrespectful and have witness myself first hand. I have reported her several times and have never seen any action taken. Please be aware show uo unannounced and I'm sure you will witness it yourself. I have recently removed my family member due to the excutive director.
Provider Response

I am the Regional Director of Operations and would welcome the opportunity to speak with you to discuss your concerns. We have many team members who have served the residents at our community for 5, 10 or 15 years. When our wonderful Recreation Director retired we were so fortunate to find a special individual to be our Lifestyle 360 Recreation Director. Lifestyle 360 is Five Star’s new activities program that supports the wellness, spiritual, emotional and social interests of our residents. We would be delighted to send you the calendar. The care, happiness and comfort of the residents and the satisfaction of our family members is very important to our Executive Director, the team at The Villa at Riverwood and to me. We welcome visitors at any time. If you would like to speak with me, call Five Star at 617-796-8138 and they will connect us.

Thank you for your consideration,

David Seward, Regional Director of Operations

Mom is at The Villa at Riverwood. We like it because it's close to where she lives. The staff is friendly and very attentive. The place is consistently clean, and her room is spacious. She does have a kitchen facility.

I visited this facility

The Villa at Riverwood was very nice, but it was a little more expensive than what Mom was looking for. However, I liked the way everything looked. It was newer than the other communities. I also liked the people there. The staff was very nice, helpful, and accommodating. The rooms were very nice. My mom enjoyed the food. It would be better if they were more reasonably priced.

Overall this is a good facilitiy. the biggest complaint among residents is the small food portions. occassionally the food portions are good. 9 out of 10 times they are not. residents have complained to me personally about leaving the table still hungry.
