Independent Living Reviews for Riverstone

I visited this facility

I visited Riverstone, and it was wonderful. Everybody was courteous. The apartments were adequate in size. The facility was well kept. They had everything that you would ever want including valet service and a place for guests that were out of town. They had everything. There was no question about it. They had all the activities you could ask for. They took trips, play cards, hand & foot, and bridge. They had two dining areas and a snack bar. One dining room was formal, the other was one was cafeteria style, and the snack bar was like Starbucks or whatever. I liked that it was a nice facility. It was expensive, and I do not think I could afford to live there, but it was nice.

I visited this facility

I toured Riverstone, and the food there was marvelous. The food service was just terrific. All of us had a cane or a walker. So, what you do is, you get in the line and check out what you want to eat, and there is someone always waiting to take your food to your table for you. I thought that would be very helpful. It was new and bright. They were easy going. The rooms were laid out pretty much like a hotel room with living room, dining room, and a bedroom. Then they had two-bedroom floor plans, too. It was very nice. It seemed to be kind of upper class, and it was quite expensive. The atmosphere seemed a little cold, but I would recommend it to others.

I visited this facility

Riverstone I thought was great. It was a very new facility. The location of it was very close, about two minutes away, from malls and restaurants. The staff was wonderful. Their rooms were spacious, modern and open. Their configurations I thought were very easy for elderly to get around and live in.

I am/was a resident of this facility

I've made a lot of friends here in Riverstone Retirement. I like this place very much. I have been here since the 2nd week of June and so far, I'm very satisfied. The staff is great. There are a lot of things that you can do here. They have beanbag toss, Nintendo bowling, etc. They have a small gym and a sauna that is always available. They have a beautiful theater with stuffed chairs everywhere. They also have free ice cream. The only thing that I wish they had is a swimming pool; however, I definitely recommend this place.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

We chose Riverstone because the rooms were larger and the facility was more open compared to others in the area. The place was very clean, well-kept and up-to-date. The environment was warm and all the people were friendly including the residents. My mother had her own apartment. The place just seemed like a place to live rather than a hospital or a facility.
