Assisted Living Reviews for River Bend Senior Living

November 23, 2020

I visited this facility

The staff at River Bend Senior Living was very nice. The atmosphere was awesome. It was very clean and very nice. They showed me a studio and a one-bedroom, and they were both very nice. The studio overlooked the river, and it had a beautiful view. The one-bedroom overlooked the parking lot, but it was still a nice room. They were both very nice rooms. They had a secured area out back where there were some patio chairs and a picnic table or a lounge table. There was a group of guys sitting out there chatting and laughing and having a good time. Their dining room facility was down to one person per table, and they were kind of staggering everybody eating for safety. They had a little library section with chairs scattered about, definitely socially distanced, and there was a lady in there reading and she looked happy and content. It seemed like a very nice place. They had bingo and activities, and there was a shuttle bus that takes people to all their appointments.

I went to River Bend Senior Living. It was very nice, everything was fine, and I would have gone with it, but they assessed my mother and they said they would not be able to accommodate her. It was clean, they were friendly, attentive, and it seemed like a warm, friendly, and nice place. They had a shuttle bus, they were baking cookies when I was there, there was a nice dining room, and I liked that. It felt more homey.

We enjoyed our visit with River Bend Senior Living. It's in a really nice place and it's visited quite often by doctors from Mayo Clinic. It's a great place. They had a lot of activities, clubs, gym rooms, people that will help you with exercises, card games, and a little library. The staff was nice and very friendly. They gave us a grand tour, explained everything, and showed us different apartments.

My grandmother lived at Riverbend for two years. She paid $4,000 per month for a studio apartment. That price included utilities, all meals, housekeeping, and a home care employee to assist her with showers a few times per week. The building is new and beautiful. Unfortunately they have a difficult time keeping staff, so the food has suffered along with Healthcare. Their marketing director Shannon was initially nice when she wanted our business, but then didn't seem to have time for us when issues came up. Many of their activities end up getting cancelled because there aren't enough residents to attend them (playing cards several times per week I'm sure gets old). I certainly hope things turn around for them, but if we had to do it over again, I would not have put my grandmother there.

The River Bend has the river down there, but it is more in town and congested. The rooms were small, and that was a big deal. The staff was fine. The people were very nice, but I felt like I was being pressured by the gal, and that was a negative for me. The elevator and the size of the room were the two big things for me, and the thing that turned me off the most was the pressure of the recruiter.

I had the worst experience ever with Riverbend and I work in healthcare. My family member went in walking two miles a day and due to not being cared for passed away two months later. I moved them out before they passed away but the damage was done. Nobody fed my family member, I brought in food they liked and they were never given it unless I went there and fed them myself. My family was overmedicated and was never outside of their couch whenever I visited. I also had issues with the director, whom got fired while my family member was there. They tried to kick out my relative the first day and keep a 1000 dollar deposit. Please send your family member anywhere else.

River Bend was not quite fully informed when we visited but very helpful with what they did know. We saw a gathering in their little room where they were gathered around the piano. There weren’t any residents around. The dining area looks good, but it looks like there was ample room for eating and ample opportunity to snack and socialize. It looks very nice.

River Bend seemed like a very nice place to be. It seemed very relaxed and could be a comfortable place. The room was very nice and comfortable. They have art classes and card games. The food was very nice. It was a comfortable setting, not dirty or messy or unorganized. It’s a very nice place. I was very impressed.

I visited River Bend. The staff was very nice, very cordial and everything was wonderful. I looked at the memory care and the memory care rooms were appropriately small and it was fine and clean. I think it was a relatively new building and it was great. The atmosphere was cordial and friendly. The dining room was very nice.

River Bend was brand new, gorgeous, and welcoming, only having opened about a year and a half ago. When we walked in, we saw a fireplace and a sitting area. The person that gave us the tour was absolutely wonderful. That’s the place that my dad loved. Some of the rooms had pretty spectacular views of the river. Everything was very modern. It was a gorgeous place.

River Bend was a very nice place. I would rate it way up there. The rooms were nice and very clean, and the staff was very helpful. The dining room was very pleasant. I didn’t see any activities going on at the time of my visit, but there were activities posted. They have exercises and bring in community activities like music and dance. They have a game room/library, a movie room with a popcorn machine, and computers for the residents to use, which was very nice. The whole place was welcoming.

My mother is in River Bend, which is close to my house. The staff is nice and good. The apartment is very nice, spacious, and clean and looks out to a river. The food is fair. My mother exercises every day. They can improve by having more staff at night.
