Assisted Living Reviews for Rittenhouse Village at Portage

My family is just starting to look at options for our 91 year old mom. While I have talked to the Rittenhouse representative, Dawn, from Merrillville, my brother was talking to representatives in Portage, where we wanted to focus on. We made an unannounced visit with other family members (not our mom) yesterday (a Saturday), and were highly impressed. There is also an opening right now for a shared apt, so we unexpectedly put down a deposit, having met the other roommate and knowing she will become a wonderful friend for our mom. We have a month to make this transition for our mom too! While I'm not looking forward to talking to mom about leaving the home she built with our dad in the 1940's, I am very encouraged by everything I saw at Rittenhouse, and know it has everything mom will love (Bingo, puzzles, served dinners, happy people, etc). Most importantly, I'm a speech pathologist and have worked in many nursing homes, so I personally looked at important hints regarding the tone of the building. A kitchen worker smiled and said hi to me as she walked by. The director talked about maintaining dignity and as much independence as possible for the elderly. Corners were clean, and there were good smells throughout the halls and rooms. I have it set up to take our mom there next week for Uno and lunch. Honestly, I almost want to live there! Again, this is the hardest thing ever to do. I'm the youngest of her 6 adult children and I still consider her my best friend. But even I'm excited for her. Now we just have to convince her.

Mom is at Rittenhouse. The facility is beautiful and it looked like a hotel. It's very clean. The staff are very caring and they are all about helping everybody. They are very nice to everybody that comes in. The apartments are very nice, spacious and also very clean. The food is good and the dining room is beautiful. They do activities like they play cards and bingo. They polish their nails and do their hair. They have Christmas parties and choirs come in and sing for Christmas carols. They have a bus that takes the residents out. We're very happy with them.

I chose Rittenhouse Senior Living for my parents because it is within 5 miles from where I live. In fact, they have just moved in about a month ago. I like what they offer and I think this is a safe place for them. This place is wonderful. My parents can go everyday and have one meal in their assisted living dining area. There are also a lot of activities that my parents can participate in. The staff members are wonderful people. They really care for their residents and everybody is treated like a family there. The facility itself is very clean. It is just three years old and their little homes are all new. It was a major transition for both my parents and they are missing their home of 44 years, but they're satisfied in this facility and so far, so good.

We began looking for assisted living for my parents, who are in their 90's. After checking the area we knew Rittenhouse of Portage was for them instantly. Nothing in the area compares to Rittenhouse and what they have to offer. We compare it to a 5 star hotel. We definately give Rittenhouse a 5 star plus. The management, all personnel, the facilities, location, food and activites are wonderful. They enjoy the activites planned daily and being with the other residents. The professional staff is so helpful and always go that extra mile to help in any situation. They have greatly exceeded our expectations and we would definately recommend Rittenhouse of Portage to anyone ready to make the choice and move to a great facility.

It is never easy on the individual entering or family when the time comes to take this step. Our research found very few differences between various facilities until we visited the Rittenhouse. From the first time we visited, something was different. Of course, it was new, clean, and a great location but in addition, there was family feeling to this place, a genuine care and concern for the residents by everyone. Now this was just a feeling initially and we could not confirm if it was real. Our father moved in Oct 2011 and we can now say with certainty that this place is different. The difference is the management staff. They know their business, they understand how to deal with difficult situations, they are extremely accessible, professional, responsive and caring. Assisted living facilities are not perfect and all have issues that come up from time to time. However, we have been pleased that our concerns have always been addressed immediately and handled professionally. All of these facilities are only as good as the staff, and is it clear that the management team has trained and shared this vision with the staff. As long as the current management is in place, we have no hesitation recommending the Rittenhouse of Portage.
