My Mom has been a resident at Rio for about one year, and we are very happy with the care she is getting there. From the beginning, since she had a stroke and needed long term care, and the searching and applying for help, the managers and staff of Rio Pinar were a great help to us. We looked at several other facilities before deciding on Rio; it looked cleaner, in better repair- even though an older building and facilities, and the staff were friendlier than any of the others, and so helpful getting her admitted and helping us with the Medicaid application. For those new at this; Medicaid plus her Social Security check covers the whole thing, with some left over for expenses. The entire staff of Nurses, CNA's, Social Workers, therapists, etc. somehow manage to give Mom personal attention and care even though they are very busy caring for several other residents too. Of course there are always issues and problems with the needs of seniors with several medical and mental problems, but we love the way everyone at Rio works hard to resolve problems and make the residents as comfortable, clean, and healthy as possible. The Physical and Speech Therapy departments at Rio did wonders for Mom and we saw great improvement in her condition since their therapists have been working with her. We visit her often -any time we want and the staff are very open and accessible for any questions or assistance. Its right across the street from Florida Hospital for any emergencies, and Rio provides transportation and helps arrange any needed Doctor appointments. Also- all sorts of activities for the residents to enjoy, depending on their abilities and needs, to keep them active and involved. The food, three meals a day plus snacks, is healthy and a wide variety. Overall, excellent care and after a year of a difficult transition period, we are happy she now calls Rio Pinar her home.
