Rivermont Retirement Community was pretty good. The rooms are nice and furnished. It's pretty good quality, and the facility director was a nice lady. They had a library room. It's a nice place.

Rivermont Retirement’s layout was OK. The staff seemed OK too, but the cleanliness of the place was not good. The odor was overpowering, when you started walking on the hallways, that’s when the odor -- the urine -- was very strong. I did look at the dining room, and it seems clean. The rooms were very small. I thought they were a little high for the price.

We really liked the independent living area at Rivermont at the Trails because of all the activities and the way the place was set up. I didn't like the assisted living area because it did not have the little kitchenettes in the rooms. One person showed us the independent living area, and another one showed us the assisted living area, and they were both wonderful. They spent considerable time with us and answered all our questions. We actually had one resident come up and give positive feedback on how good the food was.

We put my parents in a nice one-bedroom in Rivermont. Our experience has been very good and very positive. The staff is very accommodating and very good at coming and fixing things. The dining room, the common area and the gardens are lovely. However, I guess there is a bit of turnover in the kitchen, and they are getting a new chef. When they first moved in, the food was very good, and then they had a different chef, so it was not as good, but I guess it is getting better. My parents are having a ball finding something to do and enjoying themselves. There is a lot of variety of activities. It has the continuum of care on-site because at some point my dad is going to have to go assisted living, and it will be nice that my mom will be able to see him every day. It is working out. It has only been a month, and they are adjusting.

Rivermont was very open and I love it. It was very friendly and clean. It was really beautiful inside. That’s where I wanted for them to go.

This facility is absolutely awful. They don't have any activities for the residents and all the residents have to do is sit in their room or sit in the big room and do nothing. The directors that you need to speak to are always on vacation or gone for two or three days. They raise the rent whenever they want. We finally moved my family member to arbor house and it was the best decision we ever made. Think twice where you put your loved ones.

I have heard a lot good references for Rivermont. Right now, they are going through a change of personnel. The staff they had was very good, so it would be hard to tell you how this new staff is going to be. Food is good. My husband's room is very nice, roomy, and clean. It has a separate bathroom, its own bathroom. They pick the room out just for that person when they come.

We've been in Rivermont a couple of days. It has a long-time good reputation. I've lived here a long time so I know about it. It's always very clean and very well kept. My husband is in the memory care. It's a very nice-sized room. It's all new inside. They just redid the room before he moved in. It has everything. They have a lot of people and staff, and I know he's well taken care of.

When looking for a place for my mom, we checked this place out. First off, was the smell when you walked into the building. There were people sitting around in wheelchairs with no activities going on which disturbed me but the lady giving me a tour said it was just a "down" time. Since it was just before lunch, I stayed and observed. There was two entrees to choose from but very few of the residents were even asked what they wanted. The full plates were set down in front of them with very little discussio, I thoughtthe place was very cold. I didn't get a good feeling that this was the place I wanted my mom.

We checked out The Gardens at Rivermont in Norman, while visiting friends. Our uncle needs to move to a place where he can be cared for. He has early dementia -- and were were told that they could accommodate him here. Most of the residents looked like they could get around well, so our uncle would fit in here well. There are plenty of exercise and other physical activities offered. The services offered here seemed typical to what we have seen thus far. The needs of the residents were handled with consideration and care by the staff. The restaurant style dining looked appealing, as did the food. The outings schedule includes transportation to various recreational and social programs in the community and they also host a variety of events at the facility. All of the areas we saw were clean and tidy. The private living quarters were nice sized -- about the size of a hotel room, which is ample enough for our uncle. He prefers to be out and about socializing, so would only really use the room for sleeping and perhaps, reading. He can also read in the library, which stocks plenty of interesting reading material. All of the residents here appear to be ambulatory, so a fit and active senior would do well here.
