Assisted Living Reviews for Victory Centre of River Woods

September 23, 2015

By Reviewer12345


The staff at this facility, and apparently corporate, interfere with the healthcare decisions of their residents. They do not have the best interests of the residents at heart, and do not allow the patients to make their own decisions. I am very disappointed in this facility and would not recommend it to others.

Provider Response

Thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear that you feel that our community does not put the best interest of our residents first. Our residents always have the choice as to which provider that they use for healthcare services. We would be happy to discuss this further with you. Please contact our Executive Director, Gus Stavropoulos at 708-547-5800.

I toured the facility for my uncle who was looking for an Assisted Living facility. I was very impressed. I had an opportunity to dine there and the lunchroom was clean bright and the food was delicious. My uncle decided to live at Riverwoods and it was the most wonderful experience. The staff is very caring for the residents, they were outstanding in his care and I could not have been happier that we found such a wonderful place. Everyone from the receptionist to the medical staff goes out of their way to make his experience a happy and productive one. I cannot thank them enough.

Provider Response

Thank you so much for your review! I am pleased to hear that your Uncle had such a wonderful experience at Victory Centre of River Woods. It is always our goal to deliver first rate care and customer service and I am glad to hear that it was received.

I visited this facility

The whole set up of Victory Centre was OK, but they didn't have a room I wanted available. They had a room, but it was 2 people sharing the same apartment. The rooms were nice. The staff was really nice, very helpful, and everything. The place is very clean, and the people were very nice. They discussed everything. They told me all the activities every day that they did around there. I would recommend it.

Provider Response

Thank you so much for your review. I am glad that you would recommend our community to others. I am sorry to hear that we do not have the type of apartment available that you are interested in. We would be happy to work with you to get on that waitlist. Please contact Barb Travis at 708-547-5800.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

I liked the location of Victory Center and I liked the apartment; it has more room and plenty of windows, so it was very well lit. The biggest thing was walking in and seeing how happy the residents were. My mom moved in three weeks ago. They get to go somewhere 2-3 times a week. They’ve been to the grocery store, out to eat, and the botanical garden. Everybody was friendly and helpful.

I visited this facility

Victory Center seemed to be very complete, everything was there. The rooms have a bathroom, bed, refrigerator, a place for a desk and a sink. The dining area looks very nice and the menu looks very good. The place was clean. There were a lot of residents just sitting around, but they seemed happy and the care seemed good. They seemed to be very caring and on top of things.

Friend or relative of resident

The centre has every facility required to people who required assisted living, recently my relative joined the center and in his words he is completely satisfied with the services they are offering at an affordable price tag. The 24 hours supervision and nursing care facility is marvelous, The interaction activities are very good to consider. Meals are served in healthy and hygienic condition at common area where others can interact and socialize. Other important factor is Government assisted center, pets are allowed which is good because many centers restrict pets, hair salons, library, computer rooms, Handicap Barriers free are very convenient factor to consider, The caretakers in center are offering their assistance with service oriented motto to caring every individual personally with utmost care .According to my close relative satisfactory levels I will genuinely and totally recommend this Victory Centre of River Woods to be best of its Assisted living class in this area.
