Reviews of Rio Terra Retirement | Independent Living

I am/was a resident of this facility
Our room here at Rio Terra Retirement has two bedrooms and two baths. We like the setup and the quality of this place. The facility is very nice and take great care of us. We get two meals a day in the independent living. In the assisted living, they get three meals a day. There is a bus that takes us to doctors' appointments and on tours to see different entertainments. They have games, like bingo, and a game room. The only problem I have here is it is very hard to get to know people because the population is mostly female, and the dining tables are setup for four and six people, so it is very hard to break into the groups.

I visited Rio Terra, which was a high-rise with apartments ranging from efficiencies to one-bedrooms to two-bedrooms/one-bath to two-bedrooms/two baths. They also have an Alzheimer's unit and maybe a nursing home. It's a huge place. A year or so ago, they had the open house for separate little cottages that are two-bedrooms/two-baths and have a garage built on to them. I don't think I can handle walking to the main building where the meals are served. They don't have enough parking places or handicapped parking places out there, so there are problems like that. It would be five stars, except for the high-rise apartments, and they only have four apartments on the corners that have windows; I simply couldn't see in their apartments, and I have to have a very light and bright place.

I’d say Rio Terra Senior Living is very clean. They’re comfortable and very inviting. It seems to be very well run, very friendly, and very professional. Rio Terra is the place that we chose and we’re waiting now for an accommodation.
The accommodation is very, very nice. I think it’s very adequate. The dining facility is very nice and very clean. They have exercise class, they have a sing-along, excursions to go out to eat, tours, games, and movies. The staff is very thoughtful and very friendly.

The lady who gave us the tour at Rio Terra was really warm and friendly and made us very at ease. She answered the questions quickly and doesn't say I don't know. The facility itself is really clean and modern. The people there were the same age as my parents. They weren't too old, so they felt like they would fit in. The rooms are great. I would move in myself.
The dining area was really attractive. It was wide open, clean, and it didn't feel like a cafeteria. It felt like a restaurant. I know that they have a lot of activities I thought it was a very attractive, modern facility, but it had a lot of wood and it seemed warm and homey. The apartments were really nice with full kitchen that they can use as they need it.
